49 year old Scott hunter of a Toronto was murderd brutally at the Kentucky derby by three American men.

Does this make you think twice about vacationing in the states eh?

Next time you visit ANY city, whether it's in the USA or abroad, make sure you know where you are, the level of crime in that part of town, and don't be out walking around at midnight. Crime happens after dark just about anywhere you go.

No, it doesn't.

There are plenty of countries with much higher statistical crime rates than the US that I will be happy to visit. The US is still a very safe country to visit.

How come I can walk in any part of Toronto after dark and experience no crime?

I don't know and don't care. But blaming America for a Canadian walking around in an unknown city around midnight and getting killed, is ridiculous.

Jane Creba was walking down a main shopping street in broad daylight in downtown Toronto with her mom when she was killed.

Bad stuff can happen anywhere, anytime. It's sad but it's true.

I agree with you, but it happened in Kentucky... One of the bad states.

As have I in that very same area this guy was killed. The Kentucky Horse Park has a very nice RV Park/Resort and used to be one of our first stops on our way south for the winter while still RV'ing.

Thought nothing of walking around after dark to visit friends also migrating south.

Be careful of absolutes. Your next walk might be a very different experience, as the odds would dictate in Toronto

You strike me as a person who read an article or saw something in the news and decided to post something to stir up controversy.

Have you also read about the travel warning issued by Canada for the areas of Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara? Canadians go there in droves.

Are we going to see you start a thread on the Mexico board?

Sorry, but why should we -- no matter where we live or visit -- accept the fact that there are still parts of North American where we have to be vigilant against falling prey to our fellow man? He came from a place where it's relatively safe to do what he was doing, and this was after a "civilized" event attended by 170,000 people. Don't blame the victim for being shot while being robbed by three thugs...
