yep..I saw that. I'm fixing to retire to TN, and it don't bother me. not one bit. I'm heading to a 100% rural area. yeah, it's got its share of meth-heads and petty crime, but who doesn't these days?

like the article said:

"to be fair fair, Tennessee’s violent streak is concentrated in some of the major metropolitan areas. Memphis’s violent crime rate was the nation’s fifth worst, while Nashville’s was the 18th worst. "

every state has major "core" cities with high-flying crime rates; gee, wonder why? just take the play book from the liberal/progressive/Socialist mindset, and voila! big time crime. dependency, laziness, lack of freedom, no responsibility nor accountability--all foreign to original American principals.

over my near 70 years on God's green earth, I have learned a few things, one being most country folk don't take no,... ahem, "manure." they settle things up real quick and effective (like they should be done.) word gets out: "Don't mess with "X" or don't be fooling around on "X's land."

a big portion of these big rotten inner cities rely on crime as a means to an end, like prostitution, drugs, thefts, scams, assaults, robberies, the list is endless. that kind of behavior is not tolerated in rural areas; thank heaven!

GO TENNESSEE! I am with you!

rant over...

total BS. Really? More dangerous then souther Cali? Michigan? New York? Northern Illinois?

Fucking stupid

Born in TN, lived in TN 28 years total and when i didn't live here i visited weekly if not daily. I have never been afraid of any place i have lived in TN. Are there bad places, hell yeah. They are mostly isolated. It is damn easy to avoid most crime in TN.

I don't think we'll see a Tennesseans moving to New York, Michigan, Cali, Illinois. At least here we can protect ourselves.

Yeah most people who see that article know better. If anything, they praise us for keeping that shit contained within 1 and a half cities.

Give Memphis to Mississippi or Arkansas. Tennessee's crime rate would drop substantially. Plus, our ranking in education, health, etc. would rise.

Another one of these articles was on a real estate site where you could search by zip code for crime statistics. Apparently my corner of Montgomery County (Woodlawn, Indian Mound) has a virtually nonexistent crime rate and is regarded as one of the safer zip codes in America.

Yeah, we could sell Memphis to Arkansas, but I doubt they're dumb enough to take it.

TOTAL BS, just look up the FBI crime stats yourself, TN is one of the safest states actually. I wont waste your or my time on this, just google the crime stats and you will see. Look at actual government reports though, the news is total BS. In the USA ALL CRIME IS LOWER THAN EVER ! Drug use is down, murder is down 50% !!!! Lower than its been since the 60's, THeft is down, rape is down, teen pregnancy si lower than ever ! education us up. It all good! The news is rated just like TV shows, the more dramatic the news, the higher the ratings.
