I'm beginning to think your name does say it all.
My community is not “sheltered” but just a middle class community. There are no rich here or mansions. People work for a living just as in your neighborhood.
Most of the negative news originates from the Black neighborhoods or the Latino ones where gangs run rampant. In fact, there is a handful of high crime areas which distorts the view of the whole city.
90% of the crime comes from 1 or 2% of the population not just here but everywhere.
The major change that drives all these problems is the collapse of the Black family from having a majority intact with fathers in the home to 70-80% single mothers. We have subsidized vicious bastards for fifty years.
Nothing I have said comes from arrogance.
