Take a ride on Sugar Creek during the day. Try Tryon near the University at night. Check the Police reports. The busts come sporadically.

You're actually more likely to get arrested for a crime in one of the new developments than in some drug infested project. If you drive a car that isn't new enough and leave it parked outside, or let a limb on a tree grow too long, you can literally be criminally charged in most of these "safe neighborhoods" full of "intelligent" and "friendly" people..
1. What is "structured" crime? Is that a code word for "white collar or organized " crime?

2. "Church going soccer dads in the new developments go to at the hotels." What does that mean? Any data on this?

3. "You're actually more likely to get arrested for a crime in one of the new developments than in some drug infested project." I guess you didn't see the arrest grid for Mecklenburg County. Your statement is far from accurate.

4. Your last sentence was too long to quote, but equally ridiculous. If a limb is too long and obstructs the view of traffic or presents a safety hazard or interferes with utilities, it will have to be cut. Finally, nobody has ever been charged for having a licensed car legally parked that was "now new enough" unless it has a bad fluids leak that soaks into the environment.

Why are you giving serious responses to a post filled with sarcasm?

Statesville Ave near I-85 used to be popular. But i agree with others. I have seen some on Wilkinson. I think they were forced out of downtown a number of years back

So my guess was right! Although with all the airport construction that area doesn't look as bad as it used to. And I think a bunch of those motels might have closed?

1. No it's organized-crime. I made too much assumption with comprehension..

2. McDonalds workers and people on S.N.A.P. and SSI can't afford prostitutes.. Data? Deduct base living expenses from $8,000-$19,000...

3. Trailer parks and budget apartments don't have HOA.. They are just the economic majority.. It's called proportion.. The color of your paint can't get you evicted in Shady Acres trailer park.. People aren't happy to have their stuff taken away.. Unless you're submissive it's very easy to get in trouble in a HOA neighborhood..

4. I grew up around criminals.. I didn't read about it or build belief from rumors.. I watched gentrification happen first hand..

Don't worry I'm sure you know more than anyone in your break room about poor people economics.. You probably even used your advanced math skills to make a regression model for all of it, and just haven't shared it with the world yet..
