    I worked in Henderson for over 10 years. I was beaten and mugged and the place I worked for was robbed. After that, I left and didn't even go back to shop. I don't know what the problem is - other than beamin1 is right - it is another Durham. In fact, I think it is just as bad as Durham. The sad thing is, it is so out of hand, law enforcement will never get control.

    LOL...Caseylynne, Henderson has a Lowes, not a Home Depot (that's Wakeforest). Smoothtip - if you go to Henderson at night, try not to stop in North Henderson or South Henderson...the only safe street after dark is Dabney Drive...

    Henderson is a booming city. Why is there so much poverty? I see job openings all the time. It is a shopping mecca.

    When poverty in areas increase so does the crime rate.

    What the heck is wrong wit Henderson? Everytime I turn the news on or when I wake up....someone has been shot in Henderson. That is going to be a ghost town unless so much shooting is stopped. It is ridiculous. Is it something in the water?
