Review of Rockford, Illinois

Moving ASAP
Star Rating - 2/26/2016
I currently live in Rockford IL and need to get out of this hell hole ASAP! I graduated school and majored in broadcasting so now its time for me to leave Rockford and shoot for bigger things. There is absolutely nothing in Rockford, especially for minorities. If you are black, you re either in jail or dead and im not over exaggerating. If you like drama, drugs, violence, and jail, then move here, but if you want bigger and better things in life do not move here!!!! Or get out while you can!

We are planning on moving too. This city is raping its citizens on property taxes and they are not getting anything for it. There has to be corruption going on if they have to keep raising taxes to cover their tracks. Do your homework on other cities, $ 150,000 house in Rockford property taxes= $ 6,000. Same house cost in a major city like Nashvile or Las Vegas taxes are $,1000 You can't afford to stay in this dead city I recommend all young people to leave.
