Red states have the highest crime rates. That doesn't get coverage because of Tourette's like response of Chicago. Meanwhile guess why NYC isn't mentioned in the context of rampant crime? NYC is one of the safest big cities in the world per capita.That is it in a nutshell. The news cycle creates a false impression.
I live in the sticks and mostly it is idyllic, but I remember one meth lab that blew up maybe 300 yards from the house back in the meth lab heyday, and another about 500 yards away that they shut down the street for a while as they cleaned it up.
Domestic violence visits all zip codes. Same goes for drug abuse and OD's.
There was a double murder about a mile away by a broken ex-con who was never going to make it outside prison. He killed the neighbors for some perceived slight.
This guy killed his kids a few miles away, after disappearing his wife.
Seems lies and demagoguing works.
