May the good forces ever be with Abq

I have been here just about 2 years with family. First, on the plus side++ Housing is very reasonable , gas is very reasonable but (see below)+ Roads are maintained (just poorly designed)+ Somewhat diverse (ethnically, economically, maybe religiously?) but (see below)+ About 2 months of good moderate weather (great hiking - weather permitting)+ School facilities seem good and teachers seem to try but (see below)+ APD seems to catch the criminals pretty quickly...-- Unfortunately, the judicial is quick to play catch & release, thus,--- Crime/criminal behavior flourishes --- Kids/family do not seem a priority - overpriced recreational programs, public parks & rec has insufficient programs/facilities; thus, idol unsupervised kids...--- Weather is slightly extreme at too hot, too cold, too windy about 10 months out of the year. Only the criminals don't mind this. Otherwise, most people keep indoors.- Not enough outdoor activities- Closed attitudes to change- Drivers drive inefficiently causing traffic--- APS (school district) seems to heavily mismanage the billion dollar annual budget - so the kids & teachers take the first hits instead of the too many 6 figured executives.--- The economic segregation is ghastly. The very poor are located in the dirtiest, polluted, apocalyptic part of the city instead of integrated into more affordable less distressed areas. I have never liked the idea of assuming poor are more criminalistic and that doctors, IT, lawyers, government contractors, bankers, and more have higher morals or less criminal behavior. However, placing a distressed group of people into 1 area is not the making of good things.Having lived in many areas of the US and some of the most high cost of living areas I know what an economic struggle feels like especially when your skills barely put you above minimum wage. In many conversations I have had/overheard I hear the constant complaint of money. I just wonder what some of these locals would do if they actually lived in a high cost of living area. I was able to survive in those areas working 2 or 3 low-medium wage jobs, always carrying credit card debt, living with roommates, but the economics of those areas were against me - so I moved to affordable areas that had the same jobs available. So, there is a cultural drab of some kind in this city and probably a lot to do with some things I mentioned.Again, this is not the worst city I have lived in, but not one I feel I can call home permanently. However, come visit just don't park your trailor far out of site. Stay in a motel locked and loaded to protect your self & stuff.
