' Past and Present '

.  We may remember these stories of relative peace of mind   -   "Safest Towns in America - 2007 - Brick NJ. #3 , Toms River NJ. #9 - respectively" .  .   .  Today Brick and Toms River are not to be found on any such list, and by this unfortunate opinion, the reasons may be : Radical devaluation of community values and cultural integrity - partly due to statistical / demographic changes; The casual indifference to public indecency, vulgarity, wholesale violence, and reckless anti social behavior ; The obsession with narcissism, wasteful consumerism, degenerate public figures, and barbaric sensationalism ; A litany of crime related issues such as gangs, drugs, guns, prostitution, robbery, crimes against seniors, DWUI incidents, an assortment of internet scams and fraud ; An overwhelmed system of services ; A void of visionary leadership. . Now let us examine the current list of safest towns. .   http://www.safewise.com/blog/50-safest-cities-new-jersey/

J, Statistics may change with the wind, however we believe our comments would apply to any town which ignores the warning signs. The 'safe' towns are those in support of positive values, beliefs, and actions. Thank you and best wishes
