Populations being neglected and abandoned and being left with few alternative opportunities will commit more crimes than places that are well-off. As I've already made this clear, you should already know exactly what my answer is, but you're making no attempt to engage with my ideas, instead insisting on dwelling on surface level contextless interpretations.
Due to both the historical and current pattern of racism in this country, black people are widely impacted by this issue, especially in some urban areas with higher density populations. You will find much of the same sort of thing with rural white people where the population is lower, or with native tribes.
The primary difference in interpretation for you and me is that you like to blame the victims of these problems, while I prefer to blame the systems and biases that cause the problems.
