1. The police are your typical corrupt swine.
They take bribes, they take drugs, and they take sides; particularly the sides of women. The only criteria there is to be a "sheriff" is you graduated high school. To put this in laymen's terms, you could become a police officer stealing the freedom from people just as easy as you could enlist in the military. There is no fitness criteria, I'd say a good majority of the police here hug their couch as soon as they get off work and stuff their fat pork faces as they are almost entirely overweight bordering obese. They all have attitudes and think they are GODS because they've poisoned and diluted the pool of "Justice".
2. The people that live here have no motivation except self gratification and greed.
If you look good you will be used for sex. If you have money you will be stolen from; most likely by a woman who wants to marry you to steal half of everything you own. If people are friendly they are measuring you up to see what they can get from you all seconds of all hours of all days of all weeks of all months they know you; I stopped at months because usually you've been depleted before a year of the shenanigans. The people you've given a place to live to will rob you, have you jumped, and spread rumors about you.
3. The schools - namely South Walton High School - is pathetic.
We've actually got documentation for this one! Look at their website and they got that big A+ school rating on it, but according to this http://www.greatschools.org/florida/santa-rosa-beach/5277-South-Walton-High-School/ they have a TWO out of FIVE star rating. This rating was earned. Their administration is a joke, almost all of the teachers are pot heads, and the students are pompous rich snobs or drug addicts who will become your friend just to live with you just to steal from you and backstab you; OR THE COMBINATION. The education is a joke and only the Advanced Placement classes offer you any information that may be worth one fraction of a shit.
4. The "criminals" are guilty until proven innocent.
You CAN be arrested with no evidence here. On absolute hearsay - from intoxicated individuals nonetheless. You can be charged with crimes you didn't commit facing up to 15 years in prison for things you have never done, because a drunk sloth with fake tits who is using her fiance for money and robbing the cradle of one of her friends' sons said so. Her name is Kathleen Thelma VanNess; for those who are curious. She's 47 and the one she fucked was me, 18, still in high school at the time. Yet I still managed to go to jail. Charges were dropped, no officers were condemned. I never did get that $1,500 bail money back though, hmph.
5. Drugs are prevalent here.
The police, judges, lawyers, teachers, administrators, okay EVERYONE here, all do drugs. The rich, the poor. The dumb, the smart. Methamphetamine is very popular in this area. A friend of my mother's for nearly ten years had me arrested for "stealing" her car she gave me permission to drive because she's a meth head. My ex girlfriend Kathleen (the 47 year old) injected lies into my head and blamed me for believing her; she used to be a meth head and a prostitute, now she's just a high class whore drunk raising two psychopaths who she has sexually and mentally abused. There's an ex meth head who is a Lieutenant at the Sheriff's department. We all know that you're never really the same after using methamphetamine.
Sure, you could brush this information off your shoulders disregarding it just because you think I'm some biased ignoramus teenager who should've known better; but it's peculiar how just one person could experience all of this in just two short years of living in this god forsaken place isn't it? An 18 year old at that. Of course not 100% of this place is this way; I know I shouldn't have to say this but I'm sure some imbecile would make the comment that I'm just one person making assumptions. Well I'm not, I've lived it, and learned it.
