    You're describing about 50% of Houston. But you can get those groupings in somewhat more normal neighborhoods as well as in the bad ones.

    How about that: 15 arrests last month just at my corner. Does that count as a bad neighborhood .

    Sheesh. Have you considered moving?

    We have the cops at our apartment complex at least every other day. In one 5-day period we had 3 domestic calls, one knifing, and one shooting. I'd love to move, but can't afford it right now.

    Not really. Its a bit a unique situation. The area used to be the city's dumping ground, but has gone through "gentrification". There is now a good number of very active neighbors. The high arrest numbers are partially due to the cops really cracking down on any activity, and neighbors calling in everything. I rather live here then in a suburb where I don't know who lives next to me. Here I know everybody a few blocks in each direction.

    Maybe if I still had young kids. But they are old enough now. Also, I never had any violent crime directed at me. A few tools got stolen while I was working on the house, but that's it. The "corner boys" pretty much know that I am calling the cops on them regularly, but they leave me alone. Even walking at night to/from the local watering hole (unarmed of course... FL law) I don't have a problem.
