So does Watts, but that does not mean you should stay away form LA Live because it is so unsafe. IN fact, the majority of major US cities have area as bad or worse than Compton. Perhaps you had best stay down on the farm. Cities are far too dangerous for you. (oh BTW have you been to a city before?)

All I did was suggest to compare a neighborhood to an entire city 2000 miles away was not an appropriate comparison. Why pick a city across the continent as your "poster child" for crime when you have neighborhoods within a $5 Uber ride?

As to your question "oh BTW have you been to a city before" I actually lived in Phoenix Arizona for 3 years. I get to Detroit 3-4 times a year, Chicago every couple years, Toronto, Atlanta, LA, San Francisco, DC, Miami, Lexington KY, Denver, St Louis, Little Rock, Cincinnati, I could go on but those are ones I've done more than just drive through.

As to your comment "Cities are far too dangerous for you" And I am not the guy afraid of Whole Foods in midtown because of armed guards. That was you who said you would turn around and walk out because you would be afraid of a robbery.

I choose Compton because I wanted to and it got my point across pretty well didn't it? If it makes you feel any better you can replace Compton with Highland Park, Hollygrove New Orleans, or some slum in Kingston, Jamaica. My point is still the same.

I was more so talking about Compton in the 90s and 80s if you want to get technical. No neighborhood in Detroit today is as bad as Compton used to be, I can go all around the city of Detroit and not worry about getting shot for wearing the wrong colors.
