Hernando County the Crime Capital of Florida
It is a FACT that no other county in the State has a crime rate as high as Hernando County, especially in violent crimes, thefts, and drug related offenses. Per capita our County has more crime then the Cities of Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Daytona, and even Miami. While its no secret to those of us living in Hernando County know what the issue is, many on the outside don’t have a clue. The reason why crime is so high is that little gem of a Yankee development called Spring Hill.
If not for Spring Hill our unemployment and crime rates would be almost nill, and who knows we might still have a community left in this County. In fact Spring Hill’s crime rate is somewhere between New Orleans and Atlanta if you look at our per captia stats.
Here are some stories from July alone that the major media outlets like Hernando Today and WWJB ignore. They ignore these stories because they are likely influenced by the Hernando Realtors Association and the Hernando Builders Association which need warm bodies to move down here to buy empty houses. The only problem with that is old Yankees can’t afford to retire anymore so instead we are getting a bunch of minority groups moving down here from places like Chicago, Philly, and New Orleans on section 8 loans. Worse yet the old Yankee retirees that have been living here since the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s are dying at record levels and as a result their crime ridden children are inheriting their houses. Hence why the crime rate in Hernando is the highest in the State.
Now keep in mind these crimes occurred in Hernando County between today and July 1st.
This is why we hate Yankees, they have caused this because every single one of these criminals are transplants per the Hernando County Sheriffs Office. This is also why we encourage people to not move to Hernando until something can be done with Spring Hill, and by something we mean about 30% of it bulldozed.
