About 5 years ago, I remember everyone in Southern Ohio being paranoid to drive late at night. A gang used to initiate new members by having them get people to pull off the side of the road and then killing them. They would always do this by tailgating you and flashing their headlights on and off like it was an emergency.

Sad, but boy did I have fun with this at the time with my g/f back then. I would call her around 2am saying their's a vehicle behind me flashing his lights. Mean, I know. But trust me, she deserved it at times.

Ohio seems to keep going down the hole every year. In my town alone, it is divided up into 3 sections. Whites, blacks, and mexicans. All at war with each other. It's so bad they have a curfew now. We also can't be in each others sections after that curfew or we get escorted back by police if caught.

What sucks is, when I grew up in the town, it wasn't like that at all. In recent years prostitution has picked up and now boys from Toledo and Dayton (very bad boys) are settling in and the violence is getting even more out of hand. I've already seen quite a few families move out of state because of it, including my own sister.

What town is this?

Here are the updates:

(I'm in Ohio, hot news in these parts)

STOW, OH (WOIO) - A 16-year-old high school student arrested in connection with a Craigslist killing has been charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of complicity to attempted murder. Brogan Rafferty, a student at Stow-Munroe Falls High School remains in police custody this weekend. Court records show Rafferty helped Richard J. Beasley, 52, in connection with the attempted murder. 19 Action News has confirmed that Beasley is in custody at the Summit County Jail, being held on prostitution charges. He hasn't been arrested or charged in connection with this case at this time. The horrific story unfolded in southeastern Ohio earlier this month where a Florida job seeker turned up dead and a South Carolina man was shot while trying to flee the crime scene. The Noble County Sheriff's Department tells 19 Action News that they received a call on November 6th from a resident that a man had been shot. Officials responded to scene and interviewed the shooting victim who said he was shot while responding to a job listing on the popular website Craigslist. He told police that the job listing was for a male to care for cattle on a 688 acre property. The victim, whom police will not identify, says he met up with Rafferty and another man in Marietta, Ohio and followed them to Caldwell, Ohio where he parked his car and rode along with the two suspects to Don Warner Road in Stock Township.


Craigslist is not evil. People are.

what i find weird is that someone called and told the police where to find the body in akron so either they told someone or someone else is involved.

And this ain"t even the only thing That has happen this year in copley some guy killed 7 people and i think last year in massillon a guy killed his wife a daughter then himself. i think its something in the water

crime is on the rise in my city and like the other poster said gangs are getting worse here. it used to be all talk now they will really do it darn economy.

couldn't have said it better!

obviously a sick demented serial killer.
Craigslist wanted ads are mostly bogus.
Even when I go to look at something for sale I'm interested in (not too often) I don't go alone. No way.
too many dysfunctional and sick people out there.
it's a shame, can't trust anybody nowadays

If there was a God these crazed killers would be luring the politicians and elites out and killing them.

Without trying to sound like the grammar police...the words "farm" and "hand" should be closer together...otherwise it sounds like something else.

Looks like somebody took the big unemployment problem in this country into their own hands. I wonder how much more something like this is going to happen or if it's already happened somewhere else.
