The poster has children and I'm sure she worries more about violence than auto theft.

Here is the link: http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/...e_Ranking.html

The link I posted does rank overall crime for each state. I would not write auto theft off very lightly, car jackings can ruin your day...we had some people killed here recently in a car jacking. As *on the road*said in the above post, all states are children friendly.IMO anyone moving to another state they know very little or nothing about should do extensive research on areas they are interested in.If at all possible they should make a trip and visit these areas in person, some areas you may want to avoid if you have children or not.

Yes, that is what I said, your link does rank overall crime.

A car jacking where people are killed would not be under auto theft or at least would also be under the murder stats as well. Stealing a car from one's driveway where no violence occurs would just be plain auto theft, but what you describe in your post would be under violent crimes or as stated above and in the case of death, murder. If one robs your home and no violence is involved, it's just a robbery, etc.

That's why I prefer looking at the breakdown of violence as compared to just plain theft or vandalism, etc.

But if you take a look at St. George--DO IT QUICK!! Housing costs there are skyrocketing!! Mainly due to the escapees from So. Calif. My sister bought a modest home on one acre of land, 3 years ago, just west of St. George. Was around $300,000. Latest evaluation lists it at $585,000. And YES-it is an EXTREMELY conservative culture there. EXTREMELY!!!! That, and the Mormon influenece isn't for everyone. I also believe that local planning commissions in the St. George area best be on the ball, or it will become a mini-Vegas with all the sprawl and crap that goes along with it. Climate there is delightful with tons of rereational opportunities. Employment offerings are on the increase. Washington County(which is St. George), is one of the top 10 fastest growing counties in the nation. (#5 I believe) Vegas is a 2 hour drive away.

If you're looking for family-friendly and sunny, check out Fort Collins, CO. It's VERY family-friendly, scenic, sunny, lots to do, many arts activities, and relatively affordable for the state.

How would you say Fort Collins compares to Colorado Springs, C.O. ? Pros/Cons of both ? Would you say both are family friendly ?

You do know that the post you are quoting is almost 3 years old and the the poster hasn't left a message anywhere on the forum for over 5 months. right?
