Virtually all East of Laguna/Guerrero.
I wonder if the Fillmore and Potrero Hill areas are in that part of San Fran?

Those two neighborhoods have been some of the most violent areas of SF for the past 50 years probably. They're both overall much better than they used to be, but still have lots of housing projects that are pretty bad. The top green highlighted area is the Fillmore district, and the lower one is Potrero Hill:

The majority of suspects as well as victims were Hispanic, with most being men, who were shot. Many of the victims were also involved in some type of serious crime.

This is alarming, figuring Tucson had only 48 murders just two years prior (2006). It seems to fluctuate year to year. The previous high was in 1995, where the murder rate jumped from 38 murders in 1994 to 68 murders, followed in 1996 by a drop to 46. It has fluctuated since then between 38 and 61 murders through 2007 until this last year. The combination of illegal immigration and narcotic trafficking has attributed to the rise in the murder rate.

Isn't the green box like the financial/downtown area and where that street is that the Gay Pride Parade goes down and where that big Macy's is? I thought that was a really nice area?

And isn't the area in the pink box like the ghetto area where all the illegals live and where the crime is bad?

If I am right, how come the stats show the opposite.

I believe the financial area is roughly the dense area to the left of the Interstate 80 sign on the Bay Bridge of the map you showed, just south of Chinatown near the water and the ferry building.

Nope. That green box contains the tenderloin, civic center and part of SOMA, all of which can be considered downtown (and which all have pretty high crime rates)...the box also includes part of the fillmore district which is full of housing projects, and has a high crime rate too. Union square and the financial district are to the right and just above the green box, to the left of the 80 sign, as missionhome said. The box does contain that street though, which is market street. It's the diagonal yellow street that runs through the middle of the city, through the top right corner of the box. As for the purple box, that's Bayview/Hunters Point. No it's not the best area. It's a working class neighborhood that's cut off and isolated by freeways and semi abandoned industrial stuff. It has an abandoned navy shipyard, a bunch of projects and plenty of violence. No, it's not where all "the illegals" live. It's population is 60% black.

Chicago-509 murders for 2009

Atlanta didnt fare to much better either, the APD have not released their stats yet (and probably wont until those crooks at city hall can "massage" the numbers) but they have said that we are higher than last years total of 126, but lower than the 2004 total.
So that means for the metro your looking at:

Atlanta (city proper)- 135 ????
Dekalb County- 108
Cobb County-15
Gwinnett County-??????
Unicorpirated Fulton County-42
Clayton County-64

Whats sad is that suburban areas like Dekalb and Clayton are quickly becoming worse than the city. Atlanta very well may be one of the first cities where the suburbs are much worse than the city

Only? 48 murders in a city with a population of ~500K? Am I the only one who thinks that's outrageous?
