A city in Massachusetts known for poverty and violence. Most observers criticize these street-level phenomena, but institutional corruption dwarfs both, whether police/fire/school departments, public works, or the mayor and city council. While a thin crust of decent people keep the city from collapsing in on itself, Brockton has rightfully been used as a punch line in a Playboy cartoon (in the 70's, when they were very popular), movies (Coneheads, The Departed), and by dozens of authors (most notably the august Lewis Lapham).
Example? Don't dispute me, ever. I grew up in Brockton and could tell you things you simply wouldn't believe could happen in a city ten times the size. If you live there, get out as fast as possible. Your quality of life will increase dramatically.

A city south of Boston, bordering on Abington. Brockton is a ghetto. If you travel there, you will most likely be stabbed, or have your car stolen. It is a very metropolitan area, resembling Detroit, with a crime rate to match. Their slogan is the City of Champions.

Brockton is a very large person. He eats anything in sight, food or not food. He gets angry very easily and will most likely bleach his hair rainbow.
