It's very rare, but it's actually easy to know why that area is bad, so very simple yet no one wants to see it. There is a very high concentration of drinking establishments there, not just bars but grills with alcohol. It's a well known cheap watering hole for drunks. The population of that area is also denser than most areas of the city, mix those two situations and you have a time bomb waiting to go off. Reduce the number of bars, and you will reduce the amount of crime there.

LIKE THE "CONCERNED CITIZENS" WHO FOLLOW THE BIG NASTY POLICE AROUND TO GET THEM ON FILM BEATING UP A LAW ABIDING CRIMINAL ? BECAUSE THEY KNOW IF THEY REPORT THE POLICE THEY DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE CRIMINALS BEATING THEM UP ??
IF PEOPLE WERE LOOKING OUT FOR THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE CRIMES TAKING PLACE THERE THERE WOULDNT BE A NEED FOR THIS CALIFORNIA POLICE STATE ALL OVER AGAIN! BUT I KNOW BETTER
