Leopard, anything that happens elsewhere happens here too, just less frequently. I think the primary difference is simply no big cities and hardly any diversity. That makes for a more polite society I think. There is lots of poverty in the countryside and small towns but in most cases that just means they are poor. Being poor doesn’t automatically equate to being “white trash”. Drugs are a huge problem everywhere and that drives most of the robberies that we do have. Drugs also pull in criminals from New York and Massachusetts urban centers selling their wares and on occasion bringing their violent ways with them. We’ve got our share of crazies too.
