Stockton is a dump. It's unbearibly hot in the summer, and riddled with poverty and crime. UOP is there, but anywhere else in the city is subject to gang warfare and ugly streets. One of the worst cities in America. Compare it to Springfield from the Simpsons, but without the charm or giant power plant in the city limits.

Dude that is impossible to map out. Crime is all over the city. Don't think just because you live on this street or that street that you are safe! If you want to be safe you need to move into the more expensive area. People pay a premium to live there for a reason.

you cant really compare stockton to oakland in terms of crime, stockton generally has around 20 to 30 homicides a year where as oakland, a city less than twice its size has around 150 a year

I describe Stockton as Stocktown and Ghetto. I think there must be nice areas, but truly, the city of Stockton has CRAZY crime. CRAZY.

Where did you get 150 from? That's not true and there's more crimes than just murder.
