City of Kalamazoo gains pop-culture notoriety
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The City of Kalamazoo is gaining the attention of people on Twitter.
The pop-culture publication called Complex, has ranked Kalamazoo No. 12 on their list of the 15 most 'Ratchet' cities in the U.S.
The term has come to be known as a slang saying to describe something as recklessly awful.
Some of Kalamazoo's qualifying factors, according to the publication include 288 meth labs, and what they call the most 'ratchet' moment of 2013 so far--a man caught with 22 bags of heroin after attempting to flee police on a bicycle.
