Orlando is an extremely dangerous,crime ridden city for a city its size it shouldn't even be in the top 100 most dangerous,its been #1 most dangerous city in FL for the past 5 years in a row,crime is getting worse no signs of improvement,i mean how can Orlando be more dangerous than Chicago,MIAMI, NYC etc etc....don't believe these people on here saying how good its getting and how safe they feel in Orlando, they probably have a home on the market trying to sell it to get the heck out of Orlando and don't want the bad rept..i Am glad i'm getting the heck out of here in a couple of months....

Actually the number of murders during 2009 has only been 56 so far compared to last year in 2008 there were 123. That's a huge change, that's more than a 50% decline.

I agree, overall, crime is way down in Orlando. The news is still filled with crime though. Maybe the last few years they didnt even show all the crime on the news because it was more than they had time to show? Who knows. But even now, the news is still filled with crime. I guess it must have been really bad the last few years.

Now back to the article...

"Secret recordings led to the arrest in late October of Arturo Aleman-Diaz, who is charged with operating a drug ring that handled deals ranging from tiny free samples of heroin to 110 pounds of cocaine, according to Osceola County court records." Originally from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, Aleman-Diaz handled more than 100 phone calls a day while the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the Osceola County Investigative Bureau built their case. Agents tracked 3,422 calls on his cell phone to and from potential suspects in one 30-day period."


Excellent job taking this guy off the streets!

Default I got to give it to O.P.D

I got to give it to O.P.D they did a great job handling the downtown office shootings last week they even knew who the shooter was before they even got him...for some unknown reason Orlando seems to attract a lot of freaks/mentally disturbed people way more than other cities...just my opinion...

The city of orlando always gets a high crime rate because they use the population of the city which is only 200 something thousand people. So you would think its a tiny city or big town, but in reality, the general orlando area has over 2 million people and the crime in concentrated in one general section thats within the city limits, if the city limits of orlando were larger and enclosed more of the metro area, the crime rate of orlando would be much lower.

If INS did a better job of rounding up the illegals we'd be a lot safer. Illegals perpetrate a disproportionately high number of crimes, particularly violent ones. In 2006 over half of the violent crime in Orange County was committed by illegal aliens. And they have the nerve to protest about immigration laws? Round them up and deport them, you'll see a dramatic immeditate decrease in crime. (And before someone says something about the guy in this article not being illegal--I know that Puerto Ricans are US citizens. I'm saying in general.)

I disagree, for the most part at least. And that's Ok. But I find most crime is not done by the illegals, at least, not that I see. Look at this case, look at the downtown shooting, just these two cases alone that were talking about on this very thread. Not illegals. Both criminals were from the same place. <--And I find that trend to be very, very common.

I do however agree with you that a lot of crime is by illegals, I just dont find it to be as common as the other. Also, half of crime in Orange Co. done by illegals? Are you sure?
