A0so, no one from New Orleans can ever criticize any city for how bad their crime rate is. My parents were across the street (at a steakhouse) from the shooting in lakeview (at a Susan Spitzer restaurant,) I mean christ, nowhere in this city is safe for any person.

Umm, Metairie, Kenner, and Gretna are dangerous and over the lake is dangerous too.
My experience in N.O. and the surrouding areas and in visiting other cities/states and in the two other states I lived is that you take your precautions. You do not have a false sense of security.
Meaning for example: stay with the flow of people (tourists), put money descretly in handbag, don't carry big handbags to events, stay in the tourists areas, get a home security alarm system, don't go in certain areas, don't drive in certain areas, just don't advertise yourself.

I'll believe that when I see it.
Well NOW we know. You're not on ground level. THAT is why you don't think the bay area is violent. Makes sense.

And wern't you leaving this thread like, oh...2 pages ago?

Lots of Violence in the bay area though since you last were here. But not on your block right?

Wow... I'm only done reading the first page on this thread and I'm pretty sure this whole thing is filled with dumb****... yet it's made it's way to page 11.

I can't believe I'm going to try to finish reading the rest.

--- Nope nevermind... I couldn't do it.

Summary:

Rest of the world: Man those fans in SF act terribly. Wonder why?

Me: Man it's violent out here in the SF bay area.

One poster in this thread: Violent? In the bay area? Nonsense. I've never seen as much as a bar fight and I've lived here since 1990-Something.

Me: Are you kidding? This is one of the most violent areas in the country.

One poster in this thread: That's assinine, and besides, New Orleans is more violent than the bay area.

Me: New Orleans has nothing to do with it.

The rest is, in fact, back and forth BS. The whole thread has become my attempt to show how scary this place is and another poster's attempt at (first) showing me how wrong I am and then (second) attacking my position by insinuating I'm weak by calling me a Pu$$y and suggesting that I move elsewhere since I'm so (unnecessarily) afraid.

LOL. That's about it really, with another 8-10 pages thrown in for volume.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
