Review of Roseburg, Oregon


RE Avoid this Place
Star Rating - 1/11/2014
The burglary rate here is extremely high. I checked the stats on one site that said the chances were about one in twenty five that a person will eventually get burglarized. (about four times the state average) When people try to say exactly whats wrong here, sometimes they will have trouble defining it (not to be rude).
The whole Conservative/Liberal paradigm doesn't apply very well to this area. Many people will ACT Conservative or Liberal according to who they are talking to at that moment. And you cannot evaluate ACTORS who have shifting personalities. People who think of themselves as Liberal may label the problems they have with people here as being a Conservative thing. But in reality its more complicated than that.
The Roseburg area does have a history of white supremacy. And I think that does carry over to today. Also there is high drug use in the area.
This links to the burglary problem. There are also underground groups involved with the occult. And this isn't all benign. Some of these people are very accomplished con artists and even crime bosses for their own little groups. That may be the reason for the odd occurrences people sometimes have in the area.
