Here's a new 2008 crime stat. where Florida is ranked the 9th most dangerous state in the U.S. Most Dangerous States 2008 - AOL Money & Finance. There's even a reference to city-data on there.

Here's a link that shows the states in order by the safest to most dangerous and North Carolina is #35 and Florida is #42 . http://os.cqpress.com/Crime%20State%202008_Safest.pdf.

The larger the population, the more crime you are going to have. I looked at the safest states category, and while some of them are beautiful such as Vermont and Rhode Island, they would never be my choice to live there. I guess I have to take my chances in sunny, beautiful, beach-surrounded, unsafe Florida, lol.

Actually, I think the shooter was Black, right? And the victim was white (the shooting that happened in Broward County)? I couldnt really tell from the photo.

I do know of the Orlando tragedy, and yes Compelled, the suspect now in prison for killing another student by stabbing him in the neck and head was Hispanic.

Yup -- sounds about right.

Thanks for links, actually a bit better than I thought.

I could very easily see myself living in Vermont, especially when it is Fall or Winter in Florida.

I have never been to Vermont, but I had a friend a long time ago who took a vacation to Vermont and then moved there shortly thereafter. Her pictures were gorgous, but I am not a cold weather person. I wish I could withstand colder temps more because in some places winter is a beautiful season.

No need to run, they'll take care of each other Photo in the News: Python Bursts After Eating Gator (Update) & Huge, Freed Pet Pythons Invade Florida Everglades

I say we dump all the perverted sex offenders into the Everglades, and let nature take its course.

No. You wouldn't have to look very far to know that's not the case. In fact, you could have just limited it to some of my responses to you and you'd have more info than that.

Re your other comments, you must be talking about South Florida 50 or 60 years ago. Just curious where in South Florida this was 50 or 60 years ago.
