    You could be considered wealthy in a rural setting making 50K/yr when your neighbors barely make 19K.
    Most people in my rural setting are making 100k + easy... Up in Napa and in West Sonoma County there were tons of millionaires. Saying rural isn't accurate and your experience seems limited.

    Right. Otherwise it would just be the case of another 89 year old man beaten up by teenagers, in which case we could just shrug our collective shoulders and move along. And of course we should never try to stir up emotions over an old man being beaten to death.

    I like idealism though. Listening to it, thinking about it, and then crushing it.

    Sounds like the emotional aspect really upset you and how is society not just shrugging its shoulders in this case? The last sentence is just disrespectful as if I am dismissing the beating of a person... get a grip.

    Thanks for proving my point. I wouldn't call Texas very rural, I'm sure there are some parts that are similar but nothing quite like the North Midwest for it.

    It was in South Dakota, where most rural families are poor.

    I do find it fascinating how you think "crushing" someone can be accomplished online. You are assuming things about other people you don't know for sure. I'd be careful taking likes from someone who legitimately things minorities are more violent with some magical wand of his.

    The bold is what is important. Being a WWII vet has nothing to do with a senseless and cruel act of killing a person. Elderly is valid... old, but him being a vet is no more important than when any older person is attacked and killed unless he was killed for being a vet, that is.

    So you're just putting out some facts because, hey why not? No political agenda from you, you just thought you'd point this out.

    Yes. I've been through there and you're quite right. But as has been said, that doesn't apply to all rural settings.

    I was making a silly joke and thought that would be obvious. I didn't intend to cause any real offense. I have no idea what you mean about minorities and magic wands.

    You still have not managed to explain the difference in urban verses rural area crime.
