Because the locals admit they aren't safe places so there's nothing to disprove?
While some may not consider me "local" anymore, I've tried many times to tell folks there are race issues in the US, and depending on your race, there are areas that may not be safe.



So far as US vs UK thing that people have brought up, while I think it is pretty obvious that gun crime in UK is not as bad as US, I think knifing incidents (random?) are very much a problem in UK. I remember being shocked when I got here and started watching UK channels, hearing something about "hoodies" being banned in some areas due to the link to knife crimes - as if people wearing hoodies must have knives, and people without cannot?
