From the spelling and grammar I'll take it that your post's sole mission was to be inflammatory and beyond all comprehension.

To even say Alamo Heights is the scariest and worst neighborhood in the world is dumbfounding to say the least. Then you say LA is safer... I about dropped to the floor.

I agree with you.. it is only because it is predominately populated by black people. Also people say the south side is bad; It is always people who never even live or have been in these areas..I will agree that after Katrina, crime did go up...over by Windsor mall..

Default My hood

I live by lanier, i lived in the west side all my life, the problem is that people dont like to speak up about what goes on here, see most people would like to call the cops on someone selling drugs in the hood, haha yeahh i wouldnt call the cops on my own.....not in a thousand years unless he's trying to kill me but why does it have to get to that point? We don't see young people reaching out here in the community, because usually its not the cool thing to do. We need leaders here, we have a big group of tejanos here in the west side with a lot of pride......i would love to see that pride turn into something far greater than just partying for the spurs, or for fiesta.......i would like to see all of us come up as strong as can be.....with unlimited resources.... We need to change Guadalupe street.....your witnessing gods work in progress!!!=]

This whole city is freaking ghetto.

We live on the Southeast side (off of 181)....and honestly we've had less problems with crime then when we were living up on the Northside (Bitters).

Couldn’t agree more although there are a few pockets of nicer communities but this city just looks run-down.

It was a complete C-Pool or S-Hole (your choice). I'm quite sure it hasn't changed much since I left.
