Ok first I'd like to clear I'm really from California not from the White House. In all seriousness I live in a really dangerous town. People get stabbed, jumped or shot constantly just the other day I was watching the news and a report came out about a little girl that got shot. It seems this is going to continue for a long time the reason, witnesses don't speak up. From a rating of 1 through 10, 1 being peaceful and 1O being a death hole. How would you rate the area you live in, my town gets a 9:(.

2, Nothing bad happens in my town. No stabbing's, jumping's or shootings. I mean hell, there's been one robbery in my town that I know of. Other then that I haven't heard of anything like that. Not to mention that there is probably about 25-30,000 people in my town so it's not that big.

Canada is a very peaceful place, sometimes I wish I lived in Canada but if you visited my town you'd see the difference.

10, I live in Liberty City, the worst city in America. In the past week we saw an influx of 3.6 million "tourists". They Went on a rampage and are raping and pillaging the city. At the head of all this mayhem is an ex soldier named Niko Bellic.

Sometimes I go to Vice City for vacation. That city isn't that good either as far as crime goes, but its a blast from the past, reminds me of the 80's.

I live in El Cajon, California. Formerly the Meth capital of the U.S. We have some pretty bad areas just down the street from me. Nothing like LA's worst or anything. I hear sirens every night but luckily my immediate area is a little off the crime beat.
We plan on moving to my old, peaceful neighborhood by years end.


I give a '5'

My old neighborhood in central, upper middle class New Jersey is most surely a 1. I can walk around at 2AM with cash hanging out of my pockets and not one soul would notice. Roads are so wide they can fit 4 cars, parallel. My new area in WA is a 3 I'd guess.

I'd reckon a 6. I know of ALOT of crime that goes on in my neighborhood, not just minor drug dealing, but serious ****. About 100 meters from my house, a man was shot in the head and killed for his truck a while ago. Now, compared to big city ghettos/slums, theres no comparison, but for a semi suburb, its not the best by far.

I just moved to Georgia and from what I have seen and heard the rating would be like a 2 in my town and that would be mostly traffic violations. Now if I drove 30 min to Atlanta well that changes.

My neighbourhood is alright.
Most people just keep to themselves, but one of our neghoubours is a family of rough as guts turds.
Always yelling and screaming throughout the day.

Without them it would be close to perfect.

Sounds like my neighbour, I just make it awkward back and drown out the yelling and screaming with music or something.

It's good cos everyone complains at them and not me lol.

Well I live on the outskirts of Pittsburgh in a town called Brookline. It is not bad at all from what I have seen. Although I am big on security, so I would still like to get a sec. system and teach my wife how to use a gun.

If I had to give it a number I would say 2.

4-5-6 Maybe...From the age of 14-18 there's normally trouble wherever you got at night...specially the beach for some reason.

Mostly just petty groups of pikeys, ocassionaly bottles, screwdrivers, any cheap ass weapon they can afford.

Once you get past 18 it's clubs at Bournemouth and the only trouble you get there is the usual drink idiots which are either abundant on one night or quiet.

I remember once I went down our local park with some mates to meet up for a drink which we do every weekend...this time we found about 60 pikeys there, luckily we knew some from our school so we stood around ****ing scared because one of them got a sledge hammer out from his car, another a big fat off wooden plank.

They said they was going "Emo bashing" and we knew some slight looking emo's from our school in the area so we told them to ****ing go home because there's 60 odd kids waiting to beat you up around the corner, lol!

I love my town though, some good stories.

I'm from Fort Worth, Texas. The city itself is not so bad, but when crime happens, it seems to always happen in my neighborhood. Actually, not long ago, me, my girl, and her son went out to see Rambo and were treated to a real live gunfight going on right in the parking lot. I mean, they were ducking behind cars and shooting back and forth and ****, it was crazy.

Another night, I almost got mugged myself. I was walking down the alleyway to my car and I saw a dude trying to sneak up behind me. I turned around and he walked up to an apartment door and acted like he was going inside...but I knew the people that lived there. So I kept him in the corner of my eye as I walked and I saw him start moving towards me again. When he got close, I turned around and reached into my coat like I was pulling out a gun and the guy took off running.

Then there was the night when some Aryan Nation guys busted into some guys house and shot him and his wife in the face and robbed them. Somehow, both survived.

I don't like this area at all and I am moving very soon. It didn't look like a bad neighborhood when I was shopping for apartments. My apartment complex looks very nice in the daytime, but when the sun sets it's the ghetto for real. it was close to my job and cheap so I thought it was a good deal, but I think I can handle a bit of a commute now.

I live in a small commuter town about 20 miles out of Edinburgh. There are a fair number of chavs but they are harmless.

I'll give it a 3.
