    Well I come from Oakland,CA and resently a cop killed a man who already had his handcuffs on.I don't know if you seen it on the news but it was messed up and videotaped by a cellphone.You may ask why I care of how violent your city is and it's because I like the ghetto.

    Last I checked, my city was the third safest city in the U.S.

    I'm not sure if it's still the same, I'll have to check on it later.

    Though right across the border, it's horrific and I hope it doesn't merge into El Paso, Texas.

    My hometown, Port Angeles, was pretty non-violent. There hasn't been a murder in 10 years. HOWEVER, it is home to a lot of drugees.

    The current town I live in, I don't notice. It's average.

    My town is... safe.
    Sort of. And yet not. It deserves points for the crimes that you know happen, but you'll never hear about. In years I only remember there been one unsolved murder, and I wouldn't even call it that.

    It only really gets dangerous at night when alcohol and drugs get involved. And thats a pretty easy way to avoid the danger. Not partying until 4 in the morning is a good start.

    Euclid, Ohio.. is a bit peaceful, there's a small number of loud neighbors that enjoy blasting their speakers at night. There's only been 1 break-in attempt in this neighborhood (or so I've been told by the older neighbors), we get a few rowdy gangster-wannabe kids who like to make noise, but that's about it.

    I lived in East Cleveland once, it's alot more violent and there's a special ghetto area in Cleveland (I forget the name) that is very violent, with frequent car jacks, burglaries, gang shoot outs, etc.

    Hahaha

    In one of the High Schools in Oakland,CA the fights sometimes involve guns and knifes.I remember like 4 people getting shot 2 blocks away from my house and in one occasion there was a guy running with a riffle in front of my house.My dad saw it.

    I dont believe that at all. Where is Compton, CA and Bushwick, NY and Hollis Point Queens, NY

    That list you have posted looks more of 'slums' then violence.

    I know that Brooklyn is ghetto and violent but in Oakland my house was robbed 4 times and my dad was beaten and forced to get inside the trunk of a car.Whats your Brooklyn story?

    I need to go to school right now but go to Google and type US most violent cities and click on the first site.It gives you a very long list of cities.I will give you the link later.

    Oh yeah, there was that time a teenage mother didn't want her baby anymore so she wrapped it up in a plastic grocery bag, and threw the baby in the garbage.. Happened a few streets from here, they found the baby alive, but I can't remember what happened to the girl afterwards.

    Cardiff is surprisingly peaceful compared to most other cities in the UK. The inner city is safer than you might expect, since that's where most of the students live. Just make sure to avoid Butetown (an area between the city centre and the bay) and some of the council estates in the suburbs.

    I live in some small town called Washington Township. Nothing special, it really never experiences murders. Only thing I recall was when a Father committed a murder-suicide, in which he killed his two sons and took his own life. That was about 2 years ago.

    Otherwise, I'm happy my town is peaceful. :thumbsup: (God I love that smiley)

    I just remembered another.. there's an apartment buildng down on Lakeshore in Euclid (some of my friends used to live there) called Watergate, where there was a suicide on the 19th floor.. Some man, i don't know why was on his balcony and jumped off and landed in the back tennis court.

    Another event was on the 22nd floor i think, where two kids were imitating Pro Wrestling, they were playing on the bed, and the window was wide open (next to the bed), the kid bounced off the bed and fell out the window from the 22nd floor and landed on the grass below.

    Ouch, I hate stories like that.

    As for me, my town isn't violent although things happen. People light things on fire (port-a-potties) and they break into peoples homes and proceed to destroy them, but other than that its alright.

    I live 40-50 minutes away from Toronto and some people may know how bad that place is/can be.
