Where is the guy who always tries to convince everyone that PWC is not a violent hellhole?


Really, StaffordLiving? You're saying PWC is a violent hellhole? Seriously? So nothing happens in Stafford County? Fairfax County? Loudoun County? Every county has some blight. Please see my response to above. Please stop with the generalizations and labeling.


Yes really. I lived in PWC almost all my life. In the last 15 years, crime has run rampant. You can deny it all you want and point to other counties, but PWC is taking a nosedive.


Thank you I fully agree


You can also look up crime statistics in the area and see how much of a dive this county has taken over the last two decades instead of just being hurt in your feels.

"Full of criminals"? That's a harsh and broad statement. I know there are many hard working, honest people that live there. Just because they may not make a large income and may not be able to afford higher priced housing, doesn't mean they should be considered criminals or grouped with criminals. I am personally a product of Williamstown and have been labeled many negative things, none of which are true. I assure you the vast majority of people there DO NOT have a criminal record. I implore you to take caution when you put labels out on others.


Nah man. Williamstown is nothing but trash. Ghetto ass kids and wiggers, of course theres "good and bad everywhere. But the MAJORITY of that place is scum. Nobody called the law when that man got shot but everybody including all the nasty ass hoodrats there were standing around outside LAUGHING when the police showed up to investigate. Nothing but filth in my opinion. Never ONCE heard anything positive come from williamstown , just troubled kids and gangs, murder and robbery. Drugs and bull for days. Strip defending that shithole and just get out of it
