Just because Baytown is not a sprawling metropolis doesn’t mean we don’t have big problems. Just like Houston, we have drug addicts, pedophiles, wife beaters, drunk drivers, racists, killers - pick your problem.

Yes, on a percentage basis, our problems may not be as sizable as a metropolis, but they still exist. No matter how hard we try, we can’t close our eyes and convince ourselves that we are somehow immune from big city violence.
