On a lighter note, Chief:
It's good to know that big-rig drivers are busted on a semi regular basis.

Crime has even reached into our nice upscale Washington Twp. subdivision... Just "roam the neighborhood at night and steal from unlocked cars" kinda nonsense. A guy was arrested last week after he was let out on parole and had his girlfriend drive him around to steal stuff from unlocked vehicles... Guess it still "hard times' in the rest of the Dayton area...

I'm just gonna say Chicago has got it REALLY bad and as long as Ohio's cities remain the way the are or possibly less and crime rates, we're good compared to Chicago! Did you know that for every American casualty in the middle east, thirty people have been murdered in Chicago since 2002. Thats kinda scary to think about.

^ out of curiosity, do crime statistics like those you just cited for Chicago affect your desire or willingness to visit such a city? Or better yet, affect whether or not you'd live in such a city?

the crime rate is up because of lack of education. its also got to do with the household they was raise in too. young people need their mother and father to be there to show them the way. teachers act like they doesn't care about their especially young black people. so kid turn to the street for love, money, and sex i just graduated from arise academy at the age of sixteen and sum of my class mates were like 22 still didn't graduate because of the ogt and drop out. i remember there was on the news that these young boys from dunbar robbed an old lady beause they said school was not being attending that day. we need people who care about the children cause we are the one who are dying. i live in dayton my whole life and the closer they are the quicker they are the ones who are to go. i hate when people complain but doesn't find a way to solve it.

I still LOVE Chicago. You just have to know where you are going. Downtown is extremely nice. The problem is the inner city. I think you could almost say the same exact thing for Dayton, or most mid-sized American metros. More developments need to happen in the inner city of Dayton that improve education and safety, then that will also add to more business and other opportunites for the city. The city also needs to become more transparent and open.

[quote=JefferyT;10974623]Getting back a bit to the thread header, about violence and violent crime in Dayton city.

I did some quick searches off this site:Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitors sites is not allowed

Just need to say this.

Don't use that site for reliable stats. For the most part it's complete BS.

In the past I've personally checked on individual cities and their neighborhoods, some have the most dangerous rated the "safest" and vice versa. They have no clue what they're talking about.

I'm sure it isn't a whole lot different in Dayton.
Crimes and major crimes are all over Cleveland. If you got a list of all the neighborhoods in Cleveland there's no way you could come to that conclusion. I won't sit here and name all of them now but yes 4/5 of the eastside neighborhoods and 1/2 the westside neighborhoods are bad. It's in no way "safe", maybe a few neighborhoods like Downtown most of west park and south brooklyn, etc. are close to being safe but the rest not so much. And just so you know I've lived in Clark-Fulton (born there), Stockyards, Hough/St.Clair-Superior, and have visited or spent a large amount of time in many neighborhoods in Cleveland.

There's many cities in Ohio with higher crime and murder rates than Chicago. Cleveland, Youngstown, Dayton, Cincinnati, East Cleveland at the least all have higher murder rates, and Akron, Lorain, Columbus and several others are close, if not higher than Chicago.

As to which cities have higher crime rates than Chicago there's many, Cleveland, Youngstown, Dayton, East Cleveland (if it was correct), Lorain (if it was correct), Canton, Springfield, Toledo, Cincinnati, etc.

That last part (if that stat is even true) is just due to Chicagos size. If any of the cities mentioned above were the size of Chicago it would be the same thing, if not worse. In 2007 Clevelands murder rate was twice Chicagos, Youngstown was even more.
