Welcome to the Village of Birch Clump. All the children here are all above average, as Garrison Keillor would say of his Lake Woebegone. Crime is very low. The last murder was decades ago. About the worse that happens up here is for a couple of the good old country boys to have a go at each other fist-n-cuff. They patch up their differences and get along just fine after these rare public rifts.
Compare that to some of TV’s ideal fictional small town communities. Cabot Cove of Murder She Wrote, had a killing every week; fifty-two per year. I’m surprised they didn’t run that snoopy author out of town. Little House on the Prairie had a number of murders, armed robberies and violent racist attitude towards the Native Americans. Imagine, those shows were touted as family friendly. The worse anyone got in BC was a bloodied nose and a black eye, (well for the most part.)
The best thing about BC is that everyone knows each other. There are times that level of familiarity is cited as the worse thing about living here. All-in-all, folks do come through for each other when needed.
