Sherlock Holmes view of the countryside
19 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

City Confidential reminds me of the Sherlock Holmes episode where he and Doctor Watson go to the countryside by train. Dr. Watson was taken in by the beauty of the countryside whereby Sherlock made the statement that the countryside hides a wide variety of crimes that goes on for years without being discovered. Sounds like Peyton Place where the author of the book was attacked by her own community because she dare expose about sexual abuse in her own small town community where you tried to give the appearance of being a safe place with people whose values are above reproach.

You could be a cop patrolling the countryside or upper class/rich class neighborhood where someone with a computer could be engaging in all sorts of white crimes and running their gun/drug activities for years, and you would not know about it. It happen in the city of Elk Grove, California where some person had reported a lack of activity in one of the fancy houses in her neighborhood. The cops investigated the matter and discover that the house was a place for cultivating marijuana. In the ensuring weeks, the cops uncovered about 10 or more houses within a 1 to 5 mile radius of the original house that were also growing marijuana and some of those houses were owned by the very same person.

If it wasn't for that person reporting the matter, the Elk Grove cops would have been patrolling those houses for years without noticing anything wrong with them. Like everyone else, the cops would have probably though that only drug and other criminal operations occurred in low income, ghetto areas. Being in a upper class residence areas is no guarantee of being immune from crime.
