    There are much, much fewer sexual assaults in the Winter than the Summer. Winter can't get here quick enough for Fayetteville. They're having a very bad Summer.

    Do any of you who say Fayetteville is a terrible place live here?

    I work in Fayetteville and my wifes family is from Fayetteville.It is
    most definately the armpit of the state.If not for Ft Bragg nobody
    would work or come to the area.Of all the areas in central NC that I
    work crime is higher here and the town is just plain nasty.True they
    are some nices housing developments in the area but the town is horrible does not come close to the level of most other cities in the
    state its size.Dont blame me blame your city counsel and police dept.

    Do any of you who say Fayetteville is a terrible place live here? If you knew the area, you would know that the two places the article refers to are bad parts of the city. Fayetteville has bad areas, just like Raleigh, Charlotte, Durham, Winston, etc. It's not all bad. And it's certainly not the armpit of the state. I can think of worse places to live. And I am female.

    Fayetteville, Rocky Mount and Durham - the "other" triangle of the state.

    Let's just agree that Fayetteville is a terrible place for anyone. Kinda like Rocky Mount.

    Seriously it seems that Fayetteville is a terrible place for women - I feel like I read a report of rape or assault every day from there
