I wonder how many people would move to the area if they saw these stats. I plugged in some other suburbs I lived in and the robbrey risk % was 25- 30% not 227%. Interesting to look at though esp. for newcomers to compare where they are from to here.

Default well

been here a year and if I saw them honestly no I don't think we would have come.

Like I said before our realtor who has lived here her whole llife warned us that there is more suburb crime then probalby what we are use to but I guess we didn't really investigate it enough and the increase really seems to be the past 8 months.

We bought our house on whim and figured if we didn't like it we would move on in a few years no big deal.

It's probably worse now, since the sites disclaimer says the fbi stats may lag by 2-3 years!

I like to live dangerously, so I would still move here- I've also resumed running with scissors!

I believe these stats to be accurate. Similar stats can be found from several sources. Cartus.com is a source I've used extensively. It paints a similar picture.

Stats are stats, but why do you "gotta" question them?
