    Not when you don't gain anything with committing that crime. That is why you don't see high crime rates, well crime rates against others in rural settings. There is little to nothing to be gained by the equal poverty in the area.

    Was looking up the lack of concern about the Russel Simmons sex video and discovered this column from Michelle Malkin who compares the great difference between that and the outrage with the rodeo clown.

    Another Black commentator pointed to Russell Simmons as just one of the many Black Black haters.

    Nonsense, folks have been killed for a pair of shoes or pocket change and recently (we are told) just out of "boredom". Don't give me that BS line that the poor do not prey upon the poor, that is a huge amount of the crime now, as even you have pointed out.

    Trying to make point out that the rural poor and the city poor are "different" demands that the difference be examined and explained - try to figure it out and get back to us. Using your "logic" we could largely fix U.S. crime by simply relocating the criminal morons from the urban ghettos to the countryside.

    It seems you haven't visited many 'rural settings'. Not only do they have different incomes, many of the people living there are very wealthy.

    That would work quite well really. It'd be interesting to try that experiment.

    I grew up in a rural setting, the wealthy are no where near the wealthy of a city with very few exceptions.

    You could be considered wealthy in a rural setting making 50K/yr when your neighbors barely make 19K.

    I think that one is very young with little real life experience and a wealth of idealism.....Under 30 is my guess. Maybe younger.

    That obviously was not here in Texas where a modest ranch sells for $3,000,000 (and up).

    You could fill several semi trailers with the contents; everything from art and antiques to luxury vehicles and ranch equipment.

    What does being a WWII vet have to do with anything? Sounds like an attempt to stir up emotion.

    Where was that rural setting? 'Urban ghettos' are also in cities.

    I have lived in a few rural areas in different countries and most of the people are well off to rich...
