I hope folks reading this understand the source here.
Like I said in my last post, Jax must be (is) the safest city in the U.S. to live and absolutely great to raise a family in......just like Denver, CO.

No need to pout, no one said that. But many of the statments made by you regarding the safety of Jacksonville are simply not accurate.

And, FYI, we aren't moving to either Denver or Aurora! We are moving to northern Colorado this time.
And, BTW, all I was doing is making a comment to the OP that they are correct. There are folks that wish they could leave Colorado, but for financial or personal reasons they can't. The same goes for Jax and Florida in general.
Everyone in Jax also knows where most of those homicides tend to happen (as stated by other posters): north and northwest Jax. Ignoring this significant geographical factor is just plain dishonest. Reading your posts makes it sound like Jax is right up there with Detroit. Jacksonville (the city) is huge. So while most of the homicides tend to be in one particular area of Jax, it does not mean everyone in Jax is living in fear for their lives.

Not "pouting", just stating what a lot of people in Jax apparently think is pretty true. So, I might as well go along with it. 😊

Actually, now that I think about it, for most, earning a nice salary is more important than the crime rate of a city is. I mean look at how many people live in Houston, Dallas, New York and Los Angeles.....and, no matter how much crime/homicidrs happen, continue to live there.

Guess I'd take a much smaller population and less income for a safer lifestyle.

That's because the folks smart enough to obtain jobs that provide higher incomes are also smart enough to find safe places. Most of them realize that homicides attributed to a city doesn't mean that the entire city as a whole is a war zone.

Another unsubstantiated statment by you. "A lot of people think is true." you have the ability to know what people think?

You love it here, that's entirely up to you! A number of people do, while there are those that don't, but can't afford to relocate. We've seen Jacksonville change since we moved here and, like some other cities, not all that change is good.
