    Way to much crime occurs even in small town USA – I grew up outside of town on farm to the south in the river valley in the 50’s. Beautiful country, solid people as a whole but there was crime then too. Most got resolved internally. lol
    If you were a Native American living off the reservation to the south …. it was not always friendly towards one sadly. many reported and unreported deaths.
    My point is crime happens everywhere and with snoman – don’t make light of it or the pain some will feel. Just sayin’ — could be you or your family and don’t think you’d like the comments. 😉
