And yet so many, many residents of EPA live without crime being a big problem for them. Sure, it means taking precautions, but moreover, it means not being a target because you live an honest life. Funny how the snide out of town commenters prefer to make off the cuff remarks instead of commenting on the real issues. How lucky for them that they get to be so off the cuff.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
