You are right.

Compared to 15-16 years ago ? Birmingham is bad.

Memphis ? Never been there,but the people I know from Tennessee avoid the city. Never been there, so that is hearsay for me.

Apparently Birmingham (in '06) had the 4th-highest murder rate of any city over 50,000 people. Memphis was bad as well, but not nearly to that level.

I believe you. B-Ham.....I'm telling you 15-17 years ago it was a much more quiet city.

Like Mobile to the south crime has gotten out of hand in B-Ham. While I can say in Mobile....alot of wannbe's. I feel safe as I can be in Mobile. But it's like alot of people want to be seen as 'hard' as the ATL or New Orleans to the west. And Mobile is just not that place. From my point of view,lol they come off as trying really hard

B-Ham though...yeah...they're a bit more edgy than Mobile,being the largest city in Alabama.
