I live in a dangerous neighboorhood??

So, currently I live in Newark, NJ. I dont know if you know this but Newark is one of the most dangerous cities in the United States. Also, it has been on the news recently for 2 teenagers who were shot and killed on Christmas Day in Newark which is about 10 minutes from where I live. Also im 13. There have been other crimes involving christmas eve where my brother's car was stolen and used as a getaway car for a crime. So I have been asking my mother if we can move to a city called Bordentown in new jersey and is very safe. I have searched homes and found reasonable prices for a few homes. I keep asking her can we move and she denies. I dont want to live in a neighborhood where someone can literally steal my brother's car without even anyone noticing. I'm seriously not comfortable here and I don't want to get hurt. I also worry about her safety. This is my suggestion she barely ever even supports any of my ideas. How do I convince her?

    I grew up in Newark I was a teen in the 50s. Nothing has changed. It may be hard for Mom to move because of her work. Tell her that you want the family to be safe.You don't want her to be killed.

    Write a essay, like you do in school, telling why you should go there, and supporting details, stuff like that. The rest is up to you.
