I certainly won't live in Compton regardless, even if I become totally broke. I would move to the poorest village in China and not to Compton. Compton is the worst place I had seen so far in my life. If there are worst cities in the USA than Compton, I think the USA really has a very serious problem. I went to Compton to look at an apartment when I first arrived at this country and the vibe there really scared me. Then my friends told me there were people who got shot everyday. Compton makes the worst of the worst neighborhood in Hong Kong look like paradise, cause at least nobody was shot to death there. Compton is bad because of the failed government policy, not the people there. If it were in Hong Kong, our government would send in special task force and clean out the hood inside and out, and make it look better than Beverly Hills by evicting the gangs, building good schools, nice residential buildings and relocating the poor people and their kids to safe government housing all over Hong Kong. We used to have ghettos in the 50s and 60s, but not anymore. The Hong Kong government just cleaned out all the ghettos and turned the off springs from the ghettos into a group of highly educated and very productive citizens. Singapore did the same thing. But the government in CA is so corrupted it totally wasted people's tax dollars. I have met lots of smart and very nice Black people since I arrived (but they don't live in Compton). Race has nothing to do. It's the corruption in the government. From the poor English I see on this board, I do see that public schools in the USA are really failing the people. This is so sad.

this poll is terrible. however i am from compton i grew up in compton and just moved away 2 years ago. how safe it is depends on how you live your life. if youre into drugs and gangbangin then hell no it wont be safe for you. i lived with my brother for a few years and yes, our house got shot up..but that was because he was into gang banging. i moved back with my mother and never even heard a gunshot in the area. since people want to be racist, i promise you, A MEXICAN will kill you and rob you for no reason quicker than a black person would here. ive never been robbed or beaten or raped. i have two brothers...one that is in the streets and he was always getting robbed and getting his house shot up. but then i have my other brother who is educated and never been a victim to anythin like that. basically, whatever happens to you (robbed, raped, killed, shot at etc) is going to be a result of the way you are living your life and who you hang around. if youre a drug dealer or hang around them, prepare to get robbed! if youre a prositute or a loose girl running around screwing everybody, then prepare to get raped. if you gang bang..be sure youre ready to die for it. Im not saying things dont happen to innocent people though, but thats anywhere...

You've obviously never been to compton. I live there and I'm white. Its not that bad. I'm white so that reduces the likelyhood of being shot down. Your just judging it by its lokks. Don't be stupid and don't drive around at night unless you have to

Non one who has lived in Compton believes its a bad place. It is ranked 2 in California for new businesses and has a crime rat that has dropped 73% in 5 years. Its close to the beach and a jog from Downtown. The truth is Compton does not have many gangs left because gangs have moved to areas with single family homes in LA. This is because most housing in Compton is apartments with access control and gang banger types working at Del Taco selling weed on the side can't afford an apartment on their own. East LA, San Fernando Valley and Hollywood are the big gang areas now.

People who think that compton is safe are insane! every day there are shootings and stabbings of innocent people, and the gang members have so much drug money that they can buy their way out of anything!

Compton is not that bad, you guys just think its so horrible because you heard or saw it probably on tv or the radio. I live in compton, in one of worst territory, home to one of the most dangerous gangs(crips). Compton is not as dangerous as oakland, now thats a city that I would never want to move to
