Out of 96 square miles, the parts of the city that are truly downtrodden are probably no more than 15%.

That's not insignificant, but you can certainly avoid Capitol Drive and Teutonia and Fond du Lac during all of your living days in Milwaukee.

Don't confuse a realistic outlook with an "optimistic" outlook: your outlook is overly hysterical and pessimistic, so everything you hear to the contrary--even the truth--is too much for you to handle. Perhaps you should put your crackpipe down and take a look at a map of the city, or just open your eyes and explore a little. But if you're too troubled to make the effort, you can only blame yourself.

Yes, Milwaukee is GHETTO. Kids can't hardly go anywhere because of curfews now. And MPS is a HUGE mistake. People I've known who lived in Milwaukee moved somewhere else, and they all say that they would NEVER move back here.

Why would you just allow your kids to run around any large city, late into the night? Do you think that's responsible parenting?

If curfews for minors are your tipping point, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

However , I been to a lot of cities myself , including the ones you mention , and milwaukees hoods are every bit as bad as the cities you mentioned and are actually worse than most of them.


You gotta understand , you're talking about a city with over 700 shootings a year , and a hundred murders , and almost all that stuff happens in an area with less than 100,000 people. You'd be hard pressed to find a hood anywhere in america that can top that.
omg i just had to make an account after reading this. you said try looking for a city with over 700 shoots and 100 murders... try compton or the bronx, and chicago had over 1000 murders in 1 year they had o call the national guards in.

If a county(cook) with a population of 5,300,000 has 1,000 murders and a county of 600,000(Milwaukee) has 100 murders they have a pretty close murder rate. For all crimes milwaukee is the ninth worst in in the country 4,500 crimes per 100,000 residents. Statistically your alot more likely to be a victim of a crime in Milwaukee than NYC or L.A. You can check all of this out on the F.B.I webstite.

Los Angeles and Los Angeles County are listed as #73 & #112 most dangerous.

Milwaukee is listed as #117

The New York Metro area has two listings, #218 & #252


Where are you getting your information from?

Don't laugh too hard, or loudly. The biggest difference between the murder rate of Milwaukee and that of other, "rougher" cities, is the level of EMS. If a person suffers penetrating trauma in this city, they have close to a 95% survival rate.
A more accurate number to consider is the number of people shot and stabbed. Those numbers might shock many people back to reality.

Make no mistake about it, there is a very violent component to this city.

See, this is the problem when you live in a world of absolutes with just "statistics". What has changed? Advances in prehospital care, quicker dispatching and a few other advances including an average response time for help that is the envy of the nation, has helped to save hundreds, if not thousands of lives here. These facts contribute, probably more than any other single factor, to the declining homicide rate.


Just something to consider.

It's the same reason why car accident deaths have been decreasing. Driving around in safer cars, using seatbelts & much better healthcare push highway deaths down... even in the face of cellphones & incompetant drivers.
