GET THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE OUT OF HERE!!!
WE'VE BEEN DUPED...
The City of Livingston IS NOT the 8th most dangerous city in Texas. In fact, we found a legitimate source online that actually does list the most dangerous towns in Texas and Livingston doesn't even crack the top 40. Here's the ACTUAL TRUE list...
As far as the phony list (that, regrettably, we posted), those phony lists are usually made up by alarm companies that are coming to our town to sell alarms. At any rate, this is a huge relief.
