Thanks for the reply. I live in Maine, so I am aware of both our population densities and where they are. I am discouraged by a lot of the implied racism that is being displayed on this site of late. Our state has all the same issues as the other states even though it is 90%+ white. Ignorance knows no race
” I am discouraged by a lot of the implied racism that is being displayed on this site of late.”
Who is implying racism here? Liberals?
Ignorance and drug addiction too.
The FACT is that most of the HEROIN addicts in NH are white(Caucasian) race. However, almost ALL the distribution of the DRUGS is controlled by Hispanic gangs and members of the Mexican Drug Cartels.
It certainly is not the Italian mafia. It does not seem to be Black/African American gangs like in cities like Chicago.
Yes, child molesters/rapists/spousal abusers/alcoholics come in all races and creeds. Up until ten years ago that seemed to make up the majority of felony crimes in NH. Now, we are seeing a lot more drug related crime. Hispanics make up a much higher percentage of drug related crimes than Caucasian people do.
It's not racism to mention the (well-documented) fact that certain ethnicities and subcultures commit a disproportionate amount of crime, and places that lack those ethnic groups and/or cultures also lack the accompanying crime rates.
Here is another example of a gentlemen from Springfield, Ma visiting someone here in southern NH.
I am not sure exactly why he decided to threaten to stab their toy dog. At least he is being held in the Manchester jail now for potential deportation by ICE.
A Happy ending.
