I grew up in NYC and everyday I’m happy not to hear about people getting pushed onto the train tracks, drive by shootings and school stabbings. Watching the news was stressful.

I can imagine, while yes we do have our crimes and even weird crimes and such, still. Still thankful I live in this state. It’s not perfect but it’s good.

I grew up in NYC in the 80s and 90s. It was different then. You can check the crime rates

Is people getting pushed onto train tracks a normal thing?

It got a lot of news coverage last year. There was a bit of a trend. Obviously if you go ride the New York City subway you are statistically incredibly unlikely to get pushed onto the tracks, but it happened a few times and everyone got very paranoid about it.

Grew up in Providence, asides from the train track thing, the others were typical for us. We even had stabbing at our graduation.
