Crime is going to be everywhere. Maybe in some areas not so much or so heavy, but its there.
They hard fact is, the more people that live in any area, the higher the possibilities because there will be more of a variety of people. Heck I remember when the town I used to live in (back in Az) was pretty quiet, for the most part. An occasional arrest for a convenience store holdup or a warrant for an unpaid ticket. But now that the population has increased tremendously, so has the crime rates and the types of crimes. Gated communities are no exceptions, criminal minded people have been known to filter their way in there. And as a gated community that supposedly is safe, then why do people lock their doors there then, in broad daylight if they are better?
Thats why I will never live in a big city. And a population of a million or so people is way big for me, no thanks.
Its a shame there really is no place that is 100% crime free.

Well some of the headlines are close to those, but those are usually stories about something that happened in the bigger cities 100 miles or more away. Local news is much more positive.

When I lived in Northwest Tennessee, our local television market got to cover school shootings in Paducah, Kentucky and Jonesboro, Arkansas and discussion of the Kentucky vampire cult formed nearby that was responsible for a double murder in Florida.

And we're talking about a tv market that covered parts of five different states, but lacked an actual metropolitan statistical area in any of them.

A small ,local , weekly, recently covered the recent rape of a 14 year old girl at 2 in the afternoon on a public bike trail .

The perp was a 20 year old ILLEGAL.

I guess she felt safe riding a bike between 2 small towns in broad daylight.

Of course, I pick the one day when the headline isn't a new world record fish, or what school won a track meet, but a real bad day for the community.
