No one deserves any type of crime. Back when I lived in Napa, CA, I had my '65 Mustang, Stangzilla stole from my driveway. It was on my mother's birthday, which made it even worse.

As someone who grew up in the streets of NYC, I can assure you that Nevada is NOT the most dangerous state.

These "studies" are mostly BS, and based on silly things like how many people wear seat belts or smoke cigarettes or even how many people own firearms.. and have nothing to do with safety in general.

I believe the last one that ranked NV "Most dangerous" was based on car theft.. which Clark county Does have an issue with.. but certainly its not a "dangerous" crime.. simply a property crime.

I bet you that Nevada's crime rate as a whole would drop 90% if North Las Vegas to magically dissapear. Every time I watch the Vegas news.. EVERY crime is in N Las Vegas.

Chinga I agree Nevada is not the most dangerous state, but I can assure NLV does not account for 90% of the crime is Nevada. NLV does have its share of crime but no worse than parts of LV. Just ask Metro about the NE area of Las Vegas which does not belong to North Las Vegas.

In my eyes I see Clark County as one. As Vegas goes so goes North Las Vegas, Summerlin, and Henderson.

i disagree about the NE, but if they had a real police presence in West Las Vegas and Naked City, it may help take away some crime...I have already seen many police bike patrols on Sierra Vista, which i believe is cracking down on crime...

Also, realize crime happens everywhere too...

My former brother-in-law is a shop helper at Superior Auto Glass (shameless plug), and he says that most of their business for broken (crime) car windows comes from Summerlin.

It's because all of those NY drivers here

Nonsense. NLV is interchangable with the Clark County and City of Las Vegas neighborhoods with which it is contiguous. I doubt very much you can tell which you are actually in.

I am less tactful then OleCapt. In the imortal words of Penn and Teller [Penn actually since Teller never talks] I call BULLS#$% on what you said.

I took one of our cars there after the GPS was taken from it. They dropped the interior door panel and cracked it, and the new window doesn't recess completely into the door like it should. They replaced the cracked panel - as they should have, although they did try to talk me into a small discount on the glass instead (yeah, right), but I didn't bother talking to them about the vertical alignment of the window. I wasn't going to give them the chance to make it worse or break something else...

As for the crime here, we had someone break into our car as I mentioned, but in total, I've had much more trouble when I was living in/around Los Angeles - lots of vehicle vandalism/breakins, and my apartment was broken into once. I've only been here a few years - I think in the long run, it'll probably balance out pretty evenly.
