    Goodness, is the robbery really that rampant in Seattle? Or is this just anecdotal hyperbole?

    @pott that isn't typical to US cities at all

    Thankfully I'm self-aware sufficiently enough to realize I just got very unlucky :p I also did some research and Seattle does have a rather high property crime-rate.
    The entirety of the US is way safe than the places I'm from in Europe, so I guess I never really cared this much... until my two favorite guitars from taken right from my apartment. Hell I was so unsuspecting I didn't even have my serial numbers...

    The worst-part of this is... they're right. What are we going to do about it? Some folks don't care about security cams or just wear a hoody or hat or whatever. The police doesn't give a damn. People just kind of expect it to happen. Put these things together and the only outcome left is that it WILL and DOES happen, and the only thing to do is prepare yourself for it rather than to avoid it.

    It's such a shame. Seattle is my favorite city I've lived in (out of Paris, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Luxembourg...). This is one of the only true downsides here.

    Ikr. Muricans are always talking about how much they hate communism but you go to buy socks and they have a wall of huge ass socks and tell you "one size fits everybody".

    Exactly. This is what bothers me.

    @wannabguitarist - My cousin works at Facebook in SFO. He told me that he sees people's cars get broken into in broad daylight and no one does anything about it.

    I remember there being crime where I came from but it was never so frequent that I felt I had to constantly be watching all of my stuff the way I do here. I like the area I live in mainly only for proximity to my work location. I can get to work in like 9 minutes on a really good day. But it also seems like a lot of people pass through that area looking for stuff to steal.

    It's funny that it was described to you that way as I have heard on TV before "You're not a real New Yorker until you've been robbed." I don't really understand how this mentality has become acceptable either. :noplease:
