Richmond~
Watts~
San Bernardino~
compton~
Oakland~(east oakland)
hunters point SF~

those are the worst of the worst california has. point blank nothing else comes close. all of these have been on the most dangerous nationwide list & have recorded high murder rates in their histories... the areas with the worst poverty, blight and "slums" on that list are north richmond, watts and san bernadino.
Good list, but you left out Sunnydale SF, West Oakland, EPA, and Stockton. They all rank up there as well.

Lol typical east coaster with something to prove. Why do so many of you frequent CA threads just to talk trash? Why are we on your mind so much? LOL...

Oakland was ranked 5th most dangerous city in the nation (above Philly just so ya know!), LA is the gang capital of the nation, and there are more criminals in CA than any other state in the nation (and people for that matter), and there are more people killed in CA every year than any other state in the nation. So yeah, West Coast is dangerous! Or at least it can be. How far in the sand do you have your head buried?

Don't know what he means by 3rd ward, but the pink palace was a high rise housing project in SF's Fillmore District that was taken over by drug dealers and used as a lookout to spot approaching SFPD cars. It was called "the pink palace" because it was painted pink. It was demolished in...1998, I think.

Actually I acknowledged that when I said, "there are more criminals in CA than any other state in the nation (and people for that matter)," and I am making the point that danger exists here. I would say that more people overall getting killed here than in any other state would warrant acknowledging that it can be a dangerous place. I'm sure all the victims would agree.

It doesn't matter if there's 40 million people or 10,000 people here, if 2,483 people are murdered here (2006 figure - http://ag.ca.gov/cjsc/publications/h...06/preface.pdf) in a year's time, then it can be a dangerous place. I'd say that it's your point that is kinda invalid.

Oh haha okay...I thought he was either confusing us with another city (there's a 3rd ward in New Orleans & Houston too I think) or was given incorrect info. Pink palace sounded like maybe something in the Castro. Which one was called that? Death (Hayes) Valley? Or Page Street maybe? I know those were both torn down at some time around then and I know one or both of those were kinda pink like Valencia Gardens used to be.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with Stockton that wouldn't instantly be solved with the U.S. Government getting the illegal aliens out of there. They are the cause of the graffiti everywhere, the wannabe gang members all over the place, and the uneasy feeling Stockton gives people. No one in their right mind could live in Stockton and say with a straight face the U.S. a good country.

Los Angeles isn't the gang capital anymore, get with the times. It's Chicago now as of 2000-2008.

Yeah chicago has passed LA as far as gangs. What is really scary is that Chicago politicians are the most ruthless gang there

On the topic though, LA has improved in the last decade as has Oakland in the crime department. I am seeing though that San Fran is getting to be pretty high in the crime rates though
