Lived in Compton for 7 years. No Problem. My neighbors practiced neighborhood watch vigilantly and exerted our rights as homeowners. The gang members kept their distance and we did not have any problems.

Default Is Compton Bad?

One word answer - "NO". I lived in LA for about 6 mos and visited all over. I found Compton to be in line with every other American city.

I just want to see between the lines and ask people with 1st or 2nd hand experience or stories of the area.
