Under no circumstances should you ever deliberately move to Topeka Kansas. Lifelong residents are rude and miserable, BECAUSE they live in a cesspool like Topeka Kansas.
Topeka KS is where drams go to die.
Shittiest and most useless public transportation possible. The busses are largely empty. Why? Because the morons that laid out the routs didn;t even think about what they are doing. I dont think they WANT the transit system to work! The routs and the times/frequency of the busses is totally mismanaged. Its an hour wait for the next bus if you mis one. And that can easily cost you your job. (Plus the busses dont even run out to the industrial areas where 45% of Topekas jobs are! How dumb is that!?)
Topeka is not a “walkable town” in fact its outright dangerous. Not just for getting hit by cars and drunk drivers, but the muggings and robberies, and just pointless assaults by freaked out tweekers and violent crazies. NO neighborhood is truly safe, especially after sundown.
They claim that Topeka is “Bike friendly” this is patently false. The “Public bike program” even closed down. The bike routs are a joke, and obviously drawn out by a tiny handful of people to get them where THEY want to go, but it is still dangerous to ride a bike any time night or day in Topeka. Anyone who tells you differently has a bike to sell you. On top of that the Topeka Police love harassing and hassling bike riders….but not bike theives. Bikes are stolen left right and center, and the cops will do nothing about it. But ride a bike through your own neighborhood? The cops will pull you over and act like you are Americans Most Wanted Criminal.
The cost of housing is way too high for a shitty town like Topeka. There are more empty houses than there are homeless people. And the official city firebugs go through and burn down the empty ones if they feel like it. Absentee landlords that do not keep up their properties, but god forbid a homeless person squats in an abandoned house! The rents and costs of real estate in topeka is rediculously high for a town with so little to offer.
Want to go have a cup of coffee after 8:00pm? Not in Topeka you wont! And there is only ONE 24/7 restaurant open in Topeka, Well, actually theres two, but the one on Topeka BLVD is really just a front for crack and meth dealing wait staff. You are more likely to get attacked insde the restaurant then you are to get a decent meal there. And the waitresses have a habit of asking you for their tip BEFORE they even take your order. How nice.
The homeless ad mentally ill population is expanding and growing every year. The rescue mission shelter is just a poverty pimping scam, most of the homeless live in little camps spread across the city or in a tent city that the homeless shelter controls like a fat kit playing dungeon master in a weird game of D&D.
Meth and Fent have over run this town. And the cops protect the sources and bigger dealers while ONLY arresting the small fish end-users and make THEIR lives even worse, while turning a blind eye to the real dealers. Topeka Police officers sell the meth they confiscate from car stops or steal out of the evidence room, they have their wives selling it for them at certain bars owned by friends of the TPD and retired “Friends of the TPD and Fired Dept”. So theyve got a cozy little opperation that will never get shut down.
The streets are dangerous not just with psycho meth heads, but potholes that wil reduce your cars life span from ten years to two years….it it isnt stolen and scrapped while the cops do nothing.
And we have already doubled the murder rate from last year, and were not even halfway through the year.
DO NOT MORE TO TOPEKA!
This is where dreams go to die.
And once you and stuck in Topeka, this city will drain you of all resources, makeing it impossible to move out. Just like dinosaurs getting stuck in tar pits, or galaxies getting sucked into black holes.
