I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the thing that made Dave Edwards stand out, regardless of what neighborhood he was in, was Dave Edwards, not his money. I'm also going to guess that if somebody had attacked him, his neighbors weren't going to rush to help. I don't expect they'd be rushing to help you, or anyone else, either.

Dave Edwards could have lived in that community, happily, securely, lavishly for the rest of his life with neighbors having no issue with him. I think that what irked the neighbors was that his house was a million dollar crack den and the cops being called a few times. No million dollar community wants that. No community wants that. He prayed for the win, got it and then shot it up his arm. 

There are some million dollar communities which have lots up to 10 acres. That would give you a lot of security but also a lot of your own space.

    True that what it ended up being but his statement was he wanted to move to a neighborhood that his MONEY wouldnt stand out....what he failed to realize was doing drugs and having the police show up on a continuing basis will make you stand out LOL

      Dude, you know most millionaires live in modest homes (they can very well be your next door neighbor right now), drive older cars, do not wear expensive clothing or watches, do not have huge million dollar mansions. People who win jackpot may have a lot of money, but that does not make them wealthy. See what this Edwards guy is doing in 10 years and I bet he will be alot more poorer than he is now. 

       

      The mindset of the truly wealthy, NOT those who live an outwardly wealthy appearing lifestyle, knows how to use their money to grow more money....so they don't have high consumption lifestyles. Of course this doesn't mean you live like a hobo...they definitely have nice cars and nice houses...but today the common image of the "wealthy" is severely distorted.

          Another reason to not move into "rich snob neighborhoods"

           

          -Your neighbors will probably laugh at you and you won't be accepted into their elite, snob country club/friend circle...because they all know you won the lotto instead of actually making your millions like they did.

            That would work well for me because I would NOT want to be accepted into their elite circle. LOL

              I totally agree I do not want to associate with those kinds of people at all. Which is why I would not move into those homes/neighborhoods either. I'd rather live in a smaller, nicer neighborhood with modest homes and make great friends with awesome neighbors and have weekend BBQs and have a blast.

                I agree 100%! Sounds like you read the book the Millionaire next door. And I think most wealthier neighborhoods would be flattered to have a nice low key lottery winner living there. Money is money and trust me you will be invited to more high end charity fundraisers than you can handle. Act like a reasonable person in any neighborhood and you will be accepted. Act like a defenisve jerk, and you will have issues.

                    In case you're confused, a house across the street from a prison is in a direction that's diametrically opposed to the prison. And if somebody breaks out, they're going to be looking for a change of clothes, at the very least. Unless your house is right next door to a clothing store your house will be the store.

                    You know the prisoners who break free are making a beeline outta there,

                    You conveniently left that part out when quoting me. As far as the clothes, I'd like to see some stats on that. I find it hard to believe the first thing they'd do is break into a house for clothing. If they were that smart to break free, they'd have a tad more sense, meaning, a plan of action following the prison break would have to be as successful as the break itself to come to fruition.

                    You've watched too many old movies with the guy wearing a striped prison uniform eluding authorities by changing clothes.

                    I'm pretty sure that issue with the clothing would be taken care of during the planning. At least nowadays.

                        I grew up in Detroit, wonderful little sh*t hole, my neighbors didn't mow their lawns, or weed, or use garbage cans, the backyards and alleys were overgrown and full of discarded washers and furniture, doors and windows were broken, newspaper was used as curtains, paint the house? not a chance, the drug raids, the out of control parties, the constant worry of someone breaking in the house, and the constant finding out the car had been broken in to or just stolen, the pit bulls and the pimps and whores.

                        I'll take the rich snobs over the human garbage anyday.

                              They would for the same reason that the ones who dont even know you will ask you for money rather than starting with the 1342 billionaires and ask them...this is America people do stuff because they can and more specifically they think they can get away with it....All walks of life think that way not just the poor and uneducated

                              It doesn't matter if it's a affluent gated community with just 20 houses because Murphy's Law says at least one of your neighbors will be a snob. You're question is odd because why would anyone with multi-millions want to move into any neighborhood when they could buy or build a house in the middle of 10 or 20 acres with a fence around it?
