Why Crime Rates in Macon are High

Again, this really has nothing to do with anything UGA related or southern.   It’s Friday and incredibly slow.

Proceed with caution, Ucheedawg’s mom…

I read this article in the Macon Telegraph‘s online edition and just laughed out loud. 

If you have been up and down I-75, you’ll see the billboards advertising the “massage parolors” scatterd from Macon to Tifton.  An undercover police officer apparently went to see if the lady would play along, and allegedly she would.  According to the story, the officer waited until the act was over before calling for back up. 

In Macon, they have recently voted on a propety tax increase.  I see how they are spending my money.

The Macon Police Department probably gets this type of training…

    I lived in Macon (downtown on Mulberry) for several years just after college and I’m sooooo happy to be gone.

    Macon has the potential for so much more than it offers, but I fear it’ll never happened due to several reasons.

      I have enjoyed living in Macon, and have bought a home here. I hope to remain here until my place of employment no longer needs me, which hopefully won’t come for a while. But Macon does have more of its fair share of problems.

      I agree, Jason. It could be such a nice town and does have great potential. The downtown area is/was at one time very nice. Some of the buildings, houses and bridges down there are just beautiful.

      Perhaps police officers getting serviced while they are doing their service would be a good place to start.

    Is the police department hiring?

    Unfortunately, the people who really run Macon have no desire to do what it takes to Macon a better place. They only care about getting re-elected and with the kind of constituents they have, it doesn’t take much.
