as m_r2z0 said, a lot of the crime is blown up by the media. It's kindof like the way the media blows a lot of things up into big deals in the sports world like making a big issue out of stuff like Terrell Owens falling asleep in a team meeting or someone being suspended by the coach for not meeting curfew or something like that... They have a product to sell like any other business and they have to keep their stories interesting so that people keep watching. Things do happen but it's typically one thug gets in an argument with another in the hood and one decides to shoot the other... So what. I mean it's serious and all but who cares.

San Francisco is generally considered one of the safer big cities in the US. It has some bad areas just as any place does but as long as you stay out of bad areas you will be fine. It's not like gang members walk the streets of cities in the US and pick people off at random for fun or something like that... Most of the crime in big US cities is concentrated in certain bad areas of the city. Usually where most of the ghettos and such are in those type of neighborhoods. There is no reason to go into those kind of places and just know where you are going so you don't get lost and wander into one and you will be ok. I have even driven through bad areas even at night and have never had any trouble although I don't recommend going through areas like that.

Anyone who has ever been to a large city in Canada has to admit, there is a world of difference. Compared to Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, even the lowest crime US cities would seem pretty scary. How do they do it up there?

The answer to that would be very offensive and it would cause a big controversy so I am not going to say.

r2z0, can you please refer to this thread and cease spelling ridiculous incorrectly. Even worse, the post directly above yours contains the same word, spelled correctly, yet you failed.

Rediculous.

Well, if you are insinuating it has to do with diversity, think again. Canada's cities are just as diverse as the US's, in some cases more so. Can you think of any other reasons to explain it?

It's really not all THAT bad. I'm not afraid for my life. Careful in some areas at night? Sure. But I don't hide in a corner because there will be a serial murder running through the building every few hours.
