It sounds like this isn't a great place to relocate. I was told it was like living in a bubble or in Mayberry.

Well, Jennifer, it was for many years as you were told. But recently it appears the bubble is bursting very rapidly!

This is getting worse and worse! More incidents every day, and now people are getting shot and killed.

It is all out chaos and total anarchy in Columbia! Extremely frightening!

I so agree, very scary in Columbia now. My family and I used to love to come to Columbia for outings, we would shop, look around downtown, and go out to eat. Then, as the crime escalated, we didn't go downtown and only came during the day. Now, we don't go at all.
Columbia businesses are losing out because I have talked to several who no longer go to Columbia to shop for the same reasons. St. Louis now feels like a safer option. How bad is that?

This is what happens when you have a growing population of "Ethnic" drug and street gangs.
