Hi I'm thinking of moving to Asheville. I like it there but I checked the crime stats and they are so high. Whats going on in that little town? The crime rate is way above the national avarage.

    i am not exactly sure why the crime rate is so high here, but it is. the muder rate and rape rate are just as high here as anywhere in the country with the same population. there are lots of drug problems here as well... meth and crack to name a couple. that contributes to the problem.
