Malcolm is about 11 miles from Lincoln, our capital city. And yeah, this opossum got into a chicken coop and killed two chickens. When the farmer grabbed the opossum, it bit her on the hand:
The woman's skin was not broken, but she had a small red bump.
Quite a crime, huh?
I wish I could say all of our crime is this minor. Still, if you don't grab opossums with your bare hand, you can probably avoid anything too serious.
I've lived in Nebraska all my life, and the only time I've been a victim of any crime was when some drunk (presumably) drove over my mailbox.
And yet, oddly enough, many Nebraskans seem to be just terrified of crime, insisting that everyone needs to start carrying guns - even in our schools - to ward off the criminal element (i.e. anyone who isn't white).
Well, we watch a lot of television.
