    Fortunately we have very "user friendly" self defense laws particularly in the home and after dark. Bad guys know they are taking a huge risk unlawfully entering a home in TX but as a rule criminals are generally pretty stupid and/or chemically dependent.

    This is a general statement & probably doesn't apply in high crime areas: I've found that where I live we have very few to almost no real criminals. What we have are sly people that will take things when they see them & think that they can get away with them. Kind of a theft by opportunity kind of thing. And those people generally steal from people they either know or that live close to them. A wild guess on my part is that type person makes up 90% of the stealing type crime around here. I would assume that would explain why certain areas might have a much higher crime rate than other areas.
