So we just wasted all that money on a 10 year war vs Iraq & Afghanistan when Bin Laden was in Pakistan :?

So I just tried using google maps a few days ago. My friend had put me on Google Earth but i had never really checked it out like that before. Its crazy how Google Maps can take you anywhere, which is great for Navigation but terrible for Privacy and almost some 1984 Big Brother stuff. Anyway in light of The Royal Wedding yesterday, which the media just had to put in the face of all Americans that watch TV almost saying "Yes Kings & Queens still rule you all". Today I will start a thread to bring out awareness of the opposite of Royalty which can only be endless Poverty. If you feel the need to bring awareness to any of your local areas that need the most help just on google maps and hit the ( PrntScr ) button on your keyboard to save a pic to your computer so you can post a trouble spot in your hometown.

There are Hood's all over this country but you will see in the pics that some are alot worse then others. Some factors to include are Decay, Drug Spots (no posting pics its not the same as snitching), Infrastructure (failure), Murder Rate, Ect. It could be anywhere from Trailer Parks, Ghettos, The Slum or just areas that lost manufacturing jobs and the town went under in only a few years.

Im going to start local since I been thru these area's and seen all the Projects with my own eyes this week, i was out here and just wanted to show yall & City-Data.com what it is like...

WARNING: Wilmington has higher violent crime rates than Trenton, Camden, and Compton, CA. ...

Moderator cut: off-topic/persona Your statement is wrong (again). Take murder rates, for example. Camden and and Compton had murder rates 180% and 164% higher than Wilmington's (Trenton's is slightly lower).

Opinions vary - facts don't.

I'm somewhat shocked that East Palo Alto was not mentioned once in this thread.

Hammond, Louisiana, has horrifyng crime rates. The Burglary rate is 50% higher than any other city in the US except Tolleson, a suburb of Phoenix. Hammond isn't even a suburb, it a free-standing city, unaffected by any nearby metro area.

Isn't it very close to Chicago's Southern suburbs?

East Palo Alto had a crime rate and murder rate that was among the highest in the nation in the early 90s...But since that time, while crime is still bad there, I think it's improved (at least statistically) to the point where it's not among the top even just in California. I mean there's Central Valley towns like Yuba City and Oroville statisticallyhave higher crime rate than East Palo Alto at this point.

My cousin used to live in Menlo Park nearby from East Palo Alto and I remember in the 90s it was pretty rough over there--but it seems that since that time some of the development of surrounding towns has spilled over.
