Can someone tell me why the crime rate in Naples/Bonita is so much lower than Sarasota/Bradenton? Are there more drugs in the Sarasota/Bradenton area--along with a more youthful population--or what?
Or is Naples/Bonita filled with more 70 and 80 y.o. people, and, therefore, less drug activity and crime?

Those areas have a generally older and wealthier demographic.
Old rich people commit less crime.

Agreed, what crimes the older people do commit are not usually physically harming. More like imbezzling or something. Blue collar crimes I believe they call them..

Overall there is not much crime in Naples. If you go looking for trouble you will find it.

Tara-Embezziling is a [i]white[i] collar crime.

Bradenton is full of people who have lost their jobs but not their drug addiction. The Naples dealers get paid better; money is not an issue. In Bradenton, the addicts always start problems by counterfitting bills during tourist season and then it turns into a three ring circus...by that time, it's too late to send in the clowns.

Because society deems "blue collar" as uneducated, unsavory, and therefore having lower morals, ethics or values.

However, "white collar" crime committed by those society deems as educated, affluent and superior has increased enormously because of their sociopathic greed. The scope of their crimes affects far more citizens. Check out the hundreds of thousands affected by Enron criminals and their cronies.

Hijacking the thread, but b/c you are right on with the post.

Back to the OP, Naples just makes me cringe with its hysterically noveau rich who are trying so hard to seem special b/c they can charge a lot on their credit cards.

Crime is everywhere but areas where drugs are more prevalent crime will also be more prevalent. Drug addicts do anything to get a fix.

Bradenton/Sarasota has a younger demographic which unfortunately has its share of young kids who have gone down the wrong path.

They are in Naples, too, but the majority of Naples are retirees.

I would say that Naples/Bonita Springs has less crime than Bradenton. Sarasota is probably the same in crime news than Naples/Bonita Springs
