Of course it is more dangerous than Ft.Worth. Ft.Worth is like what a quarter of the size of Dallas if that.

Yes but you can also go down down fort worth anytime of day or night and there are always cops patrolling it. go down Dallas and it is potentially suicide. I feel much safer in Downtown fort worth than down town Dallas. This survey although most people already realized it, is still a sad indictment on the city. Now that "everyone" know this what does Dallas city officials plan to do about it? Oh I know sit on the butts and pretend it isn't true like they do already.

what a waste of a study. Dallas has always and probably will always be the most DANGEROUS city in north texas.

Scott you are right, it's rare that you see Dallas patrol downtown. When my family comes to town, I take them down to cowtown to visit instead of crime-town. We feel much more safer. It helps when there is plenty of police prescence in one area. Good Job Fort Worth PD.

I am sure Fort Worth is too, but its a matter of preventing them from performing their criminal activities that makes the difference.

Don't forget the Katrina "victims" that moved here. When the economy slows a little, they start to turn back to their roots. You ain't seen nothing yet folks. We don't have a politician with juevos to prepare for the day this happens. Just wait until we have a major depression or some other calamity. They are going to be kicking in your doors, taking what they want and car jacking you on the corner. You think Rodney King riots or Watts was bad, wait till they have no money. They sure don't know how to can food like our grandparents did. You better hope you have a gun to protect your family and a place in the country where you can plant a garden. Cause thay be a comming for whaz they want. That's what they are, and they don't know any better. You stupid liberals moved them into your neighborhoods, refuse to have a gun in your house. Just wait. The clock is ticking. Tic Toc..... Keep on electing black mayors, council members, senators and school board members. They will be identical to the mayor of New Orleans. Screaming GD this and GD that. Then tell the people that he wants N.O. to be a chocolate city. They only think about advancing their race. You white people better be preparing. Tic-Toc.

That has nothing to do with the FT. Worth PD...It has everything to do with the Bass Brothers. They own most of Sundance Square and to get people to go...you make it safe

My point is of course it is the most dangerous North Texas city. It is the largest. DUH!! That is just like saying L.A. is the most dangerous Southern California city. REALLY!!!! More people, more crime. Less people less crime. The study was really stupid is what I am trying to say.

Thats it. I am moving! Austin/San Antonio here I come!! We definitely didn't need a survey to tell us Dallas is bad. But they should break that down into parts of Dallas. Cause I'm sure there are areas that aren't as bad. I for one do feel safe in downtown Dallas. They could add more lighting. But then again, I have walked the dark streets of Fallujah, Iraq!

You really have a problem with police don't you? they can do no right according to you. But FPD makes a big difference, think about it. Would you commit a crime that you are more than likely going to get caught doing. i am sure these other people you mentioned are good an have a good role in keeping it safe too, but have a look around at any given time down there, there is always a cop on a bike at least within yelling distance.

My statement is true. The Bass brothers employ more officers than the Ft. Worth police department. They do that because they are protecting their investment. If a downtown area is safe, people with expendable cash will go there. That isn't a knock on the Ft. Worth PD, it's a simple fact. FWPD has it's own problem areas that it has to focus on. They cannot be everywhere, especially 50 cops patroling a 3 block area. Nothing I have said is anti-cop, it is just the truth.

Ok my apologies, the way it came over it sounded like you were putting the cops down. Which i have seen with my own eyes cops and security down there at all hours of the night and day. that was where i was coming from.

Steve was being facetious. He is from Alaska and making the point Alaska is the only state bigger than Texas.
