The joke goes that if you want to commit a crime and get away with it, you just cross the border to Juarez. Except it's not really a joke.

Goons from Chicago moving to Minneapolis, same thing for North Charleston, SC- goons from Atlanta moving to SC. Thugs in the streets are more organized than the media would like you to think- I know here in Atlanta after the DEA and the FBI indicted allot of BMF members, the ones who didnt get indicted moved to SC, NC or Alabama ply thier trade shall I say

It's like that with NYC and with Upstate NY, NJ or even NE PA. Small time guys move to smaller cities to do their dirt and with the prisons being in Upstate, many move close to the family that is locked up. Some are legit in moving away from the drama and some bring it with them. Luckily, our cities aren't too bad, but we have our moments.

Somehow your statistics for Chicago are incorrect because there are at least 10 cities on this list which should rank below Chicago by violent crimes per 100,000.

Oakland is 4th! Hooray!

Oh wait.

Anyway,
Yes we have crime-do I think about it much-no not really. I for example live in an area of Oakland with next to no crime-not just my neighborhood but this entire part of town, which comprises of about 20 neighborhoods.

Its like we're two different cities. Heck for that matter, I spend more time in and was born and raised in areas with high crime than where I live and even there I don't really worry about being hurt by crime-not that I'm naive, but I just know the area really well-on a very personal and intimate level.

Maybe other people from the hood can relate.
