    The updated list from the year 2008 of the 25 most dangerous and the 25 safest cities is in.

    Safest and Most Dangerous U.S. Cities, 2008 — Infoplease.com

    I am really surprised that San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas, are not on the most dangerous list. The situation is really bad when there are at least 25 cities worse than those hell holes in America!

    You continue to amaze with your, uh, well, "perspective". Do you even live in or near Texas or is it Oz? :rofl:

    What exactly do you think that the reason is that every single jail or prison (and unfortunately we have to have a Hell of a lot of them, I would much rather seeing those Tax Dollars going to Schools and Hospitals, but that is simply not possible due to the danger of the situation) is on EARLY RELEASE?

    Maybe you need some help pulling you head out of your Oz!

    I guess folks can get used to anything.

    El Paso is the first place that I have ever seen where the brass plaques are stolen right off the Historical Markers.

    In some places the bandits will steal anything that is not nailed down.

    In El Paso they steal the nails!

    When I was a kid, I think that Houston would have made the list for being one of the safest cities in America, if they even bothered with such statistics back then.

    Today being in the wrong neighborhood in Houston can get you killed!

    I am saddened and disgusted at the change in Houston during the course of my lifetime!

    I'm surprised Oakland beat out North Charleston, and Atlanta in that list. I spent part of my childhood in Oakland and would rather live there than Atlanta.

    El Paso has its "good" and "bad" neighborhoods, as all cities do, Old Man.

    a lot of my neighbors don't usually lock their doors; I have kept a table saw in my car port, visible from the street, for four years without incident.

    I live only two miles from the center of the "Devil's Triangle", a high-crime area that it's better to stay out of.

    Juarez, Mexico is adjacent to El Paso, tenuously separated by the Rio Grande, and is one of the most violent cities in all of Mexico. So far, that violence hasn't spilled over into El Paso.

    Have you ever visited El Paso, Old Man?:p
