one can only hope itl get better.

EXACTLY! Exactly what I was going to say. I agree with this 100% and it IS 100% correct.

Here we go again with people trying to put together things that aren't and make them seem into something else. One, that was in 2008. Two, you have to take into consideration why. Miami Gardens is not dangerous at all. Perhaps this rank does how many crimes per how ever many people and considering Miami Gardens isn't large, it makes seem WAY worse than it actually is. Like many people (including myself) have said, these ranks don't always mean what they SEEM to mean. For example, NYC has, is, and probably will always be one of the most dangerous cities, but somehow it hasn't been making all the lists lately. But you have to see why. NYC is huge and has a HUGE population (there is also the corruptness, but I won't mention that). I've been to Miami Gardens plenty of times and never felt in danger or scared. It's just like your regular suburban city. Now I have been to pretty much ALL places in NYC and felt like I was going to lose my life MANY times. Also, I have never been robbed and had any crime done towards me in Miami yet, but in NYC, I don't want to talk about it.

Long story short: This is bull and don't believe everything for what it may seem or what you think it is or seems

Lee...you are completely out of touch with reality and live in a bubble world if you believe Miami Gardens is not a dangerous place. It is because of people like you that crimes do occur.....opportunistic crimes. If people had more "street" sense and avoided areas and certain bad habits (getting money out of ATM at night for example) crimes would be much less. You are supporting the criminals with your outlook. Go ahead and be a statistic ! The most common thing I here is " I didn't think it would happen to me !? "

Ummm I do have "street" sense and everything of that sort, I've lived in NYC for a LONG time and have spent a lot, a LOT of time in ghettos in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, everywhere in NYC. I actually lived in a ghetto in NYC. I have also spent a lot of times in ghettos in L.A. and other places in California. I know what ghettos are, and I mean REAL ghettos. I know what dangerous places are, I know what to do and what not to do. I know who to talk to and how to talk. Miami Gardens is no where near a ghetto, that's one, two, it's no where near to being dangerous (and I mean ACTUALLY dangerous), and no where near to being as dangerous as actual dangerous places. No way, no how. I have been there many times, it's absolutely nothing to worry about, well at least for me (and people like me). I know to certain people, places that aren't dangerous to me, seem dangerous. There's different types of people. To some, like me, dangerous places are actual dangerous places, to some, places that to me just aren't as nice looking or people aren't as nice, or everything just isn't as much as, for example, Beverly Hills, are "dangerous." It just depends on the person's views and such.
