And I thought Chicago was bad! Does anyone know if they're adding more officers to the police force, or at the very least adding more patrols to those areas?

I had to drive through Atlanta one time. I stopped once but it was just off the highway. If the crime statistics there didn't stop me from wanting to live there the amount of people there would. It is crazy!

For people who have never been to Atlanta before (and even those who have), Atlanta can be a scary place. The interstates are confusing, possibly leading you to an exit besides the one you intended to exit. Neighborhoods are crime ridden. Help is scarce. It's just a bad situation all around.

I didn't realize Atlanta was such a scary place. I don't like the odds of becoming a crime victim in the neighborhoods listed. What areas of Atlanta are those neighborhoods in? Surely, all of Atlanta isn't that way.

Q, from what I've seen and know about as a child living in Atlanta, I think the worse areas are in west Atlanta. North Atlanta is prestigious, east and south Atlanta are mostly blue collar workers. It's the west section that's really bad.

Wow, I just took a look at that list. That is pretty scary! I've been to Atlanta a few times, then stayed overnight once when I got stranded at the airport. I can't imagine the entire city being like that, though.

That's what I thought. Atlanta has the really bad neighborhoods, the prestigious ones, and the blue-collar ones, just like every other city. How is it that the bad ones are most often in the west end?

I don't know, Q, but it seems like that's the way it is. Always the west side of town. I know west Birmingham is very bad as well, but I live about 25 miles north of Birmingham, in the 'burbs. There's no way I could live where I constantly feared for my life. But I know, some people don't have a choice. Thank God I do!

I also did not realize Atlanta was that bad. I will be sure to avoid it on my visit in the spring. I agree with you Q, it does always seem to be the west side of town that is the worst anyplace I have lived.
