Even the opiod users here rarely use violence againt random people as seen in other places.

Street crime is not a problem anywhere on the south shore of Staten Island. If you prefer places where it is common, more power to you I suppose.

Overdoses are a good thing. Self-cleansing problem. We need more!
Suicide is killing of one's self. That is violence. 107 have died due to overdosing. At least some of these people who have children who will be raised in foster care. How is this a good thing? Will it a good think if this happens to someone in your family?

But they due at higher numbers. Overdoses have surpassed homicides in death and they are rapidly growing. Sonthese neighborhoods are not at all safer.

Boring suits us fine. I'd have it no other way.
People get together in all neighborhoods to enjoy outside weather.

So go smoke weed at his house then. Technically it's a crime, but maybe he'll let a fellow right winger slide.

No they don't. And yes they are safer.

Susnset Park seems pretty quiet these days, at least the parts I've been to

You have completely failed at making any case to back up your claims. You need another degree. Maybe this time in something useful.

Maybe your believing all those make-believe scripts that Hollywood rejected are true. They're not.

A lot of Hispanics live in those neighborhoods too. Woodside is probably more Hispanic than Asian.

You're being deliberately obtuse. Overdosing, mainly due to opiate and other drug abuse, is the leading cause of death. Living in a white neighborhood is not going to protect you from overdosing. In fact recent studies have shown a noticeable decline in the life expectancy of white people due to overdoses and suicides. These neighborhoods are not safer.
