  • My area rates better than average. I looked it up before moving here and was very pleased to learn this. When we got here, we found that of the people we've met, very few actually even lock their front doors!

  • You think 6 rapes is bad? We had 62!!!
    Overall, MUCH worse than national average.. but we already know that. I've been told that we are in the top 10 "bad" cities in the US.

  • Ours was worse than average. Doesn't surprise me, every year they keep a tally on how many murders have happened since the New Year. The most recent murder is usually the top news story at 6.

  • I don't really want to know. I live in a suburb,...actually a small town near farms...and we have some dorky redneck types and some conservative families but not a whole lot of crime. I think. But what good would it do for me to know? I try to mind my own business and be a good citizen and not bother anyone. Isn't that the best we can all do?
