I live in a small town where you never hear about anything bad happening. Well, yesterday a 17 year old kid shot his girlfriend 4 times in the parking lot of the local high school before killing himself. She lived and is in stable condition.

No place feels safe anymore.

Not to brag, but I couldn't tell you the last ime a gun was even fired in anger in my town. You can leave your frickin keys in your car at 3 am at the gas station! I do feel you guys though, I grew up in Topeka KS, and that place is nuthin but gang bangers, crack heads, and tweekers. That is why I moved to Lawrence, college town too!!! :wink:

I agree. I live in a town of 4,000. I don't feel that I need to lock my house, or my cars. When reading the county police logs, it's all car accidents and some pot busts. I know the town police (because I also volunteer my time to a town committee and events). If I want excitement I drive an hour to NYC.

It's quality of life x10. I want my kids to grow up in a place where they feel safe and don't have to worry about that stuff (until later in life anyway).
