    Well... most of them are around or below the I-4 Corridor. That's the line that separates "Primarily Republican" from "Primarily Democrat" in Florida.

    Tourism/unemployment/some have big populations/transients/on or just off major Interstates/good weather................

    Don't mean squat no matter where you live if you were the victim of a crime, even in a city with a very low crime rate.

    Interesting stats, though.

    I can understand Pensacola being where it is on the list but I'm pretty supprised to see Panama City on there.

    I wonder if these account for crimes against tourists?

    It goes by police report data, all reports, so I would think yes.

    That's the problem I have with the list: they include property crime, robber, and larceny in their assessment of how "dangerous" a city is. You take away that and focus only on violent crime, and Panama City's crime rate's about 10% of the total crime rate. It actually goes lower than Leesburg, FL.

    How's the Overtown area?

    There is a shooting on the news about two times a week. Gang central, including Jamaicans, Haitian, and Latin gangs, not to mention good old home grown gang violence. Drugs, poverty. ignorance, and greed all in one tight area.

    So... same old, same old. I had a friend who's Dad was a lawyer. Nice guy, fled Cuba when Castro came to power. He obeyed all traffic regulations.

    Unless he had to go through Overtown.

    Wasn't overtown called "brown sub " before about 1970, we used to go to a club there called the Sir John in the 50s, they had the best jazz. Back then we never had any trouble.

    I'm surprised PC is so high on the list, lots of drug traffic, etc, I guess. I know P'cola was bad. Lots of gangs.

    Me, too. Guess the property type crimes skew the results. Never have felt unsafe in PC or coastal areas East. Now as for Jacksonville and Miami! :silly: :silly: :silly:
    Jacksonville was bad in the '70s when my ship was home ported in Mayport. But Jacksonville Beach was pretty safe, except on Navy payday. Buncha sailors and Marines trying to drink the place dry. :tooth:

    A lot changed between the 1950s to about 1968.

    I would like to see a breakdown on the types of crimes, victim types CCW etc, are many of these crimes related to drug sales etc. or crimes against unarmed people in general?

    Like I said horrific stuff can happen anyplace these days....the guy who shot his daughter and six of her kids in Bell FLA, never even heard of it or even seen a sign for an Interstate exit leading to it when I travel through I-75 Gainsville area.

    Now it is on the map, as they say.
