does watching your local news ever make you want to move?

in the past 3 days alone there have been 2 murders within 20 minutes of my house. a construction worker hit by a drunk driver. multiple robberies at gun point. several domestic fights that landed people in the hospital. and a dog attacked a 4 year old. where i'm from that is an entire years worth of news. and the police are saying violence is DOWN this year!

  • Same here, I'm from ND and murders are very rare. Living in Houston now and it is a totally different story.

  • No, honestly, watching our local news makes me glad I'm here. For some reason we also get Chicago News (I'm in the Pittsburgh area) and watching the two, I'm thankful we are here and not somewhere else. I think the last numbers they had said we have had 32 Murders in the Pittsburgh area this year... That's out of like 12 counties... Which really isn't bad at all by comparison.

  • I know what you mean. We had 14 murders in a weekend a few weeks ago. Granted they were 30 minutes or so away but thats still too close. I'm in St.Louis

  • I can relate to this one! We are currently looking at relocating because the crime is high here. I love big cities though!
