Blytheville has become a bad community over the years. People can’t even walk out of
their houses at night, or even in the day, without being scared. I personally believe that this is
very big issue.
I think that if Blytheville had more places where people could sit and socialize without
being afraid, then more people will think this is a better community. There could be a new
movie theater added and even a bowling alley. In these places, there should be metal
detectors, more up to date cameras, and workers that actually look around for anything that
looks suspicious. Blytheville doesn’t do any of the following. With this being said, this is why
most people are afraid to go anywhere local.
Another big problem that goes around the community is drugs and alcohol use and
crime. Most people do drugs or even do them in public. It doesn’t look very safe to go
somewhere and see someone doing drugs or even drinking. These people even do this in front
of children. This needs to stop. Maybe if businesses would stop selling them, then this would
not be such a big problem around the community. The gun problem has gotten out of hand too.
Jayden Ciepiela states, “There are many crimes happening in Blytheville, and there needs to be
something done about it!”
I personally think that there should be more places to eat and shop. If there were more
strip malls with a lot of different varieties of clothing, people would be more amazed. Also, if
there were more restaurants with different varieties of foods besides just Mexican, people
would enjoy it better.
Our community has gotten out of hand and no one tries to fix it. I think there should be
places that everyone would like and not just some people.
