[FONT=&quot]So we are supposed to move down to San Antonio and at first I was like hell yeah. I mean currently I live in Baltimore, MD. and it's a crap hole. Still while getting ready to move we started looking at the area of San Antonio and are you kidding me? We were all about the slower more easy going spirits there, and then we see your crime stats. I mean in a word DAMN. I mean don't get me wrong I'll still give the crap hole award to Baltimore over it because the crime in SA seems more petty then here but what you lack in shootings you make up for by pure numbers. It's a little sad because now we are just considering staying or moving to somewhere else. I mean here certain areas are just a no no to go to and that's fine that is everywhere, and I was expecting something like that when I looked up SA. I wasn't prepared for the fact that it's all over the city there. I mean Jesus there doesn't seem to be a crime free area in the whole damn city. Most of all though the most concerning part of your crime stats was the amount of rapes you have there. WTF is up with all of that. Well guess I'm just kinda asking if it is as bad there as its looking from your data. If so I think I'll just go somewhere else to live and spend my money. Thanks for any help.

I realize that the crap hole I live in is more crazy then there. I even said that you guys mostly have petty stuff where if my kids walk on the wrong street here they ARE getting shot, but that was the point of my question. It's not to slap your city in the mouth. It's purely I visited and it was beautiful there and we loved it. Then we are getting ready to move there and start looking at the crime reports and wow it's all over. Really the most concerning thing was the average rape statistics that we saw and over two year period for it to equal 52 rapes a month seems like a lot.

Just stay out of the bad areas and you will be fine. Car break ins and shoplifting distort the crime maps you were probably looking at. There are alot of areas that hardly ever see any violent crimes.

Have you got a link for this? I'm not ever going to tell you it's picture-perfect here, it's not. It's a nice place to live and raise your family and your money will go far here. But 52 rapes a month? That's almost 2 a day and I don't think it's accurate at all.

First off thank you very much to Spursfan and Sapphire. Thank you for understanding that I'm asking out of wanting to verify something that I'm not there in person to verify. Your posts are helpful and we appreciate it very much.

[mod]orphaned[/mod]

For those that were actually helpful, please God never ever come to Baltimore and walk on Baltimore Ave away from the harbor. It's a horrible area. [mod]orphaned[/mod]
