Review of Phoenix, Arizona
Stay away or end up in jail
Avoid Phoenix,, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, all metro Phx, the summer sucks, few low paying jobs, high rent, police are inept at best, they tend to harrass and profile people, apartments nearly impossible to get, lots of homelessness,

Agreed but add Gilbert to the list. This place has turned to sh!t really fast. Too many people, too many attitudes, high rent/ home prices, too hot, low paying jobs that don’t factor in cost of living, & the list goes on. SLC is waay better than AZ. Think twice before moving here.
What a profoundly ignorant comment, danny, regarding the police. To make such a gross overgeneralization expect intelligent people, of which you are not one, to believe that nonsense is absurd. You sound like a bit of a loser, boy, and you're blaming all others for your plight.
