That is like that everywhere though. Of course poor people struggle!

Charlotte, doesn't have a crime issue. It has a class issue. The well-off are doing fine, but the lower incomes are having a hard time.

The city has lots of things that are great for young professional millennials. Sports (NBA,NFL, Minor-league hockey and baseball) Several great night spots and pubs to enjoy. The light rail is moving along fine and construction is making traffic better than Atlanta. This is a medium-to-big city at 1.3 million people.

People are getting killed because the leadership change in the city is much softer on crime than prior. Direct correlation. It is harder to obtain guns now than ever.... nothing to do with gun laws, and everything to do with the shift to the Urban Left style management ( a la Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, etc.) Our unimpeded growth is killing the goose that laid the golden egg quickly.
