As a 24hr city you should have the same level of safety at all hours. If criminals only come out at night, then you have the crime element sitting and waiting for opportunistic times. Then what happens when the city goes into crisis. You have looting, rioting, and mass chaos. That's why NYC or LA isn't safe even though people keep touting how safe it is. It is only safe when you have order or police state.

Try going to HK, Tokyo, or Singapore those cities are safe at all times and never felt my family was in harms way anywhere or anyplace. They don't have the criminal element around. That's why you never see mass riots, looting, or chaos. Even though HK has mass demonstrations right now because of political instability but they don't riot and loot like we have here.

that's his point.
at 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am.. it doesn't matter the time. you are safe in hk/Tokyo no matter where and when.

in NYC, there are certain times you don't want to be in certain hoods. and there are certain hoods you don't want to be regardless of the time.

hoods like the latter don't exist in hk/tokyo. there are no no-go zones in those cities.

correct. in HK, they are not looting and burning down stores but protesting their right for democracy.

axe anyone in ferguson how it was during those "protests". gun shots were fired, innocent stores were looted, cars were burned.
and for what cause? because a criminal was killed by LEO. that's right, they were siding with a criminal and burning down the city because justice was served.

So then don't go outside at night then

Every major city in the USA has somewhere where it's not safe to go at night

Don't get off track. If you don't like black people, that's fine, I don't care

But Ferguson has nothing to do with the thread.

Thats how I felt. Remember, it's not about what you meant, but about what the other person feels.

i take 1 stabbing a day over 10 deaths a day back in the 80s and 90s.

most people who complain about crime now are probably new to this city. does anyone even know that why the crime epidemic even began?

would you imagine most of the cops being fired? yup, it happened. just imagine if that happened now. would the iphone champions manage to use their typewriter fingers against the old locals?

that's why i say it again and again. if everyone just owns property and takes care of their surroundings and pays their fair share of dues, we wont have these problems.

yea hardly any ghetto savages in East Asian societies. they have culture.

the Triads and street gangs are organized crime (keyword: organized). They wouldn't go around messing with innocent people and shooting, robbing, stabbing, looting, raping, clout chasing, etc for no reason. That's the kind of bs we have to deal with here.
