Home of the brave?

Sure sounds like it, seems like you'll need balls of steel just to get out of your house and wash your car. Amazing that of all the fascination there exists for moving to the States, I never hear about this culture of violence being a concern.

Simple. Most of us avoid those areas. As long as you stay in the nice bits of Chicago you can forget that the bad bits exist. After all most of those victims are poor & don't look like the rest of us.

The vast majority of cities are actually quite safe. Huntsville may be less than 200 miles from Memphis but in terms of crime it is like another world. That's probably another reason why most people are so apathetic about inner city crime.
