I first moved to Roswell from Tucson, AZ because of a job opportunity. My initial dissapointment was the lack of a movie theatre, then the lack of a big city nearby. The city itself is self-sustaining (i.e. You have all shops necessary for basic living) but choice is lacking.

My major dissapointment two years later is the constant gang and crime activity. Police exist (of course) but are overwhelmed and cannot truly crack down on this problem. Theft is too common; drive by shootings are rare but also too common. Albuquerque, the largest city in NM, has less crime per capita than Roswell.

Nope...as of the time I'm writing this comment, Albuquerque has higher crime than Roswell. Look up the statistics.
