I moved to Jacksonville from Miami last year 2005.Big mistake. The crime here is herendous. The black communities is over run with thugs. I mean mindless young people. The kind that is totally blind in there ways. They walk around looking for people people to rob and kill. Since January 2006 there has been 95 murders in Jacksonville. Mostly black on black.I live on the west side which is scary but the north side is down right treacherous with a large portion of the 95 murders occuring there. The scary thing about Jacksonville is blacks are everywhere and the element is spread out all over.These guys are so angry at the world they really are shoot first ask questions later type thugs. If they get the up on you its over. They are vicous.And the sad part of it all is the police. They are not aggressive at all. They rarely come when you call them. Only if you say someone is dead. I have called them numerous times concerning guys walking through my apartmentment complex shooting guns. They won't even show up. I'm serious, they don't come.(rednecks) You know Jacksonville is a red neck city.They really don't care if blacks kill themselves. I feel like a hostage in my apartment. The city is under siege.People are really afraid they will be robbed and killed. It is sad. I spend my weekends across the boader in Georgia. Its like day and night. I feel much safer.I will soon move to Georgia. I am never coming back to live in Jacksonville. Its really sad. really.The largest city in the world land wise but death is only a robbery away. Its hurts me to my heart, but its real.

Move to a better neighborhood! Or move somewhere else entirely. Why would you stay in any place you feel imprisoned? The only other option is to stay and fight to make it a better place.

it all started when katrina hit new orleans. Its bad here and Huston, tx has gotten bad too. How do you fix it? public lynching? education? bring in the national guard? what is the answer? You dont see jessie jackson or al sharpton down here because it is mostly black on black crimes and killings. They cant bring attention to that. But, a white cop shoots a black criminal then then they will have there stupid racist mouth just aflapping.

I Have been here since 1992 and the murder rate was never this high until last year. katrina hit in late 2005 and stats rose from there. My stat is 2 plus 2 equals 4. Huston is also having a problem with crime since then.

James, I've been here 3 times that long and you're wrong! Katrina has nothing to do with this! It is simply,the spirit of rebellion against what is right! Who do you blame for katrina? God, Bush or the devil? Look at the wickedness of that city, New orleans! Since you can add, can you read? How about,"SODOM and Gomorrah?? Who destroyed those cities?

OK folks, what's up here? I'm considering a relocation from NYC metro to Jacksonville for a much needed new job. While the official web sites make Jacksonville read like Paradise, the crime stats and what I'm reading here is QUITE different.

The job in question is a damn good one with potential to be great, and the NY market sucks right now, but if Jax is as bad as you all make it sound...

I used to live in NE FL and it all depends on the area of Jax you live in. You definately need to do some research before you move. NE FL is a great place to live as long as you are in the right spot!

Jay, I am so sorry that you feel that you are a hostage. It is despicable; these merciless killings. It is a shame that when you feel that you are mistreated, live in poverty, etc that you resort to hurting innocence people-WHERE IS THE LOVE? I admit that I get fed up w/ politics and yeah, "sky rocketing gas prices". But I will never take my anger out on another human being. People should value life more. Regardless of a person's religious preference, it is essential to know that God was so upset by Cain killing Abe that he vanished him off of the face of the earth. These young men are going to be held accountable for there senseless acts. I do not mean to get on a soapbox here, but it is true that they are going to suffer for this.
I am angry and upset as an African-American! When I turn on the news and here there was another homicide, I get sick to my stomach. I believe God is not against the "Death Penalty" (read the book of Exodus). If a person maliciously takes another's person life, your life should be taken as well. I repeat God saw no wrong doing when he got rid of Cain. Those are my black brothers but if you are going to kill and rob someone, then I have no qualms about the system executing you.
Get off the soapbox that "the world owes you something". This world does not owe you shit! Yes, I would love to not have to live from paycheck to pay check. But my resources provide me the opportunity to better myself. Why do the individuals think they cannot go back to school and get an education? Why do they think that since they were not born at the top of the economic chain that they would have to resort to the "fast money" lifestyle in order to support themselves. It is so wrong! Everyone else works for what they want in life. The civil rights moment has afforded us many opportunities. They can be successful young men if they tried but they do not want to. Therefore, they get no sympathy from me. It is embarrassing and everyone talks about it. You cannot even enjoy a night out without thinking about being "car jack".
I wonder if Florida would do more if it were blacks killing whites?

It's funny that you're under the influence or a graduate of the social promoted school system. Who cares what the 'Gay Administration' has to say about Jax crime? Bush and Co. are the most treasonous in history. Aiding and abetting a hostile foreign power right in the open and no one does nothing about it.

Backs kill blacks. It is not just in the US. The blacks have been killing more blacks than any other races have. Look at what have been happening in Africa. The blacks have problems.
Stay away from them. That's all I do.
