Gary, In is not a safe place to raise a family. There are too many issues that surrond the city and that is not just a sterotype, it's a fact. I can speak from experience, I grew up near the beach front in Indiana. In the early 80's it wasn't too bad. I couldn't imagine living there today. There are no jobs, the schools are out dated, and the scenery is depressing.
Darryl, I hope you know this number is abnormally high for a population of 100,000?.. I live in Vancouver , British Columbia , Canada, It's quite the shit hole in some areas, obviously the downtown east side is a dump, but our average was 2.01 murders per 100,000 people, 58 people is a big difference bud.
