    Serial Killers - Bodies in the Barrels. Talk about a bad advert for Salisbury (as if it needed more bad press!). Never been there myself but the quote "neglected suburbs of Adelaide's underclass" doesn't do much to persuade me to visit!!

    Blimey, used to live very close to Shipman and went past his practice everyday to work - some very nasty people around.

    A good aussie friend of mine used to (maybe still does!) play netball at the women's prison here in Adelaide (against a team of the inmates) - apparently one of the prison team members was a woman inside for the "strawberry patch" murders (they lured lorry drivers out to their farm, killed them, dismembered them, and buried them in the strawberry patch). Nice. My friend said if there was ever a contest for the ball during the game, she let the other woman have it, no arguments!

     

    Adelaide is a city like any other though, there are good and bad people all over. Don't let something that happened a long time ago put you off a suburb today for goodness sake! After all, the Beaumont children disappeared from Glenelg but that's still a great place, both to live and to visit!

    I can't see where Jo has given her opinion? She was using quotes, and as far as I can see she was defending the place, saying bad press doesn't encourage people to want to go there.

    Woohoo, once again a completely innocent thread turns into a north south fight. And in my opinion only, last time i was in the northern burbs (elizabeth) my car was keyed to hell when in a car paark for 30 mins, but guess this aint first hand experience. And no, not saying it couldn't happen in the south or hallett cove, just not happened yet......in the almost 3 years we lived in the souther burbs.

    Oh jeez, get over it! I didn't make the programme! Are you saying Salisbury doesn't get bad press? All I'm saying is that when ever I have heard it mentioned, it is in a negative light. However, now you have put your piece in, I have changed it to #1 on my places to visit list :rolleyes:

    Look on the bright side, it was posted as bait, and did just that.:SLEEP:

     

    Why we will never know.:SLEEP:

     

    Are we going to drag every murder up now?:SLEEP:

     

    Life's too short, we choose where we live for our own reasons.:dull:

     

    When you have the experience of living in an area, then you have the right to comment.

    We live in Salisbury and moved here without researching the area properly, and people told us it has a bad reputation. But so far we've found the people friendly, its a cheaper area to live and our neighbours are brill, just hope there's no serial killers on the loose

    Not turning this into a N/S fight...never metioned the South, South is good ..I dont even live in Salisbury, just sticking up for it (w/o degrading the South by the way) from some people without firsthand knowledge !!who asipre to (yourself excluded)...Mr Wilson the reason why your car was keyed in Elizabeth (which is not Salisbury, may i add) is possibly it wasnt worth nicking .....LOL

    Makes me chuckle when people talk about a North/South divide or East/West divide in the same city!!

     

    I live in the worst City in Britain (apparently) - But they never said if the survey was done on the East side or West Side??

     

    And by the way, if people werent allowed to comment on things they know nothing about, and the only conversation was factual, that would suck!! And i think i would become the Salisbury Slayer!!!

    Was going to write a real sarcastic reply, but noticed you put LOL at end of post, so thought i better not. And yes Elizabeth is not Salisbury, i never said it was, i said northern suburbs. And you mentioned Hallett Cove? Last time i went home (to Hallett Cove) i was in the south? And 2 year old Prado was probably reason it wasn't nicked, it still had the door locks on it, and they were baffled by that, so keyed it instead. LOL

    My family have lived in Salisbury for 50 years, we have never had or seen any problems, its a great place to live, close to the Barossa, City and coast. Every suburb has its " low lifes" and they are not all on benefits, the price of new homes on this side of town certainly don't reflect that; have a look at Mawson Lakes for starters.

    I apologise if it sounded like I was having a "go" at the northern suburbs, this was not my intention, and i agree that every area has it's own problems.
