<quoted text>And there are stabbings, murders, and especially robbing in the burbs!!!
Especially robberies huh? Where are your statistical links? Here's mine:
"Lower income households experienced property
crime at higher rates than higher income
households. In general, lower income households
had higher rates of overall property crime and
household burglary, compared to higher income
households (table 6). Households in the lowest
income category—less than $7,500 per year—had
the highest overall property crime rate, and were
victims of property crime at a rate that was about
1.6 times higher than households earning $75,000
per year or more.
Household burglary, property theft, and motor
vehicle theft rates varied across income categories.
Burglary rates of households in the lowest
income category were about 3 times higher than
households earning $75,000 per year or more.
Households earning less than $7,500 per year
were more likely to experience property theft than
households in all other income categories. Rates
of motor vehicle theft were higher for households
earning $35,000 to $49,999 per year than households
earning $50,000 per year or more.
Consistent with previous years of the NCVS,
larger households experienced property crime
at higher rates than smaller households in 2009.
Overall property crime rates were greater for
larger households compared to smaller households.
For property theft and motor vehicle theft,
patterns across households of different sizes were
similar to that of overall property crime. Households
with six or more persons experienced more
overall property crime, household burglary, motor
vehicle theft, and property theft than smaller
households. Households with six or more persons
were about 3 times more likely to be victims of
property crime than single person households." http://bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cv09.pdf
