crime in brunswick georgia: what to do to keep you
Star Rating - 9/11/2011
I lived in Brunswick my whole life and recently moved due to the raising crime rate in the city and county limits the amount of crime is unacceptable considering the amount of law enforcement in the area in 2004 i was leaving a friends house as a made my way through the streets heading for the highway i stopped at a stop sign keep in mind this is in the city limits a group of three armed men entered the back seat of my car and demanded that i drive to a secluded area when one of the armed men made the comment that we would be killed i had no other choice than to drive my car into a building in hopes me and my friend would be able to escape the plan worked better than i hoped not only did we make it out with only minor injury but they were not able to obtain our money or kill us as we ran away the fired numerous shots trying to hit us when the police were notified the Glynn county police made us the criminals and refused to even investigate the crime. after a few years passed more and more murders and robberies occured it became so bad i didn't even feel safe leaving my home with out a loaded pistol on hand. so if your thinking about visiting this place make sure you have a fully loaded pistol and a flask vest you never know what will happen with growing gangs and drug activity the area is becoming one of the most dangerous places to live in Georgia so i ask you all to be careful and trust no one no matter what even the police are corrupt so keep to your self and obey all the laws you should be fine. better yet just stay on one of the islands they are safer but you still have to watch your back there as well.

I hope this isn't submitted about ten times. My post disappeared. Anyhoo...I can't believe you drive in CITY limits at NIGHT with your car doors unlocked. I am from upstate - way upstate - New York and no one would even think of doing that, although in Fairport I've left my car unlocked in the driveway overnight with no problems. I think it's comparative. I feel really bad for you, but none of us would even think of going into Rochester, NY - the nearest city - at night unless it was to a well lit busy spot. And we'd keep our doors locked. So....to this New Yorker, your experience doesn't scare me away. But thank you for sharing.

I lived here in Brunswick for ten years and it it the most racism place to be. Most of the people give jobs to there friends, family members and it is all about who you know to come up in this town. The schools is okay but the law firm is crazy you have more crime being done by children then anything. The reason for that is that the town do not have anything for the kids to get into no farther then to streets. It is a quiet place at sometimes. But can get dangers if you go to the wrong areas. I am trying to move from here myself. I am looking for a place where there is more jobs and safe to raise children.
