The most crime here involves drugs. The police are very threatening & lock up non violent & victimless crimes the most. I find the police to be absolutely deplorable.

It's a very beautiful place to live. We have some of the best beaches in the world, the weather is always warm, and we have plenty of gorgeous communities, etc. to live.
I plan to live the majority of my life here. There is all ages, and depending where you live you can be around families similar to yours.
