Crime on the rise in Davis

Top-dollar payers of top homes in a top town should beware that it is pure hype. Read your newspaper. A homophobic beating of a Davis man allegedly was done by a Davis man. Children reportedly have been raped by teens in Davis parks. The police had 500 chances to change this.

People can’t walk their dogs in their parks. A Davis High School student is so bullied that he allegedly murders. There is an 82 percent increase in suicide interventions in the Davis school system. People walking are being robbed in Davis.

Realtors, your hype does not stand up.

    When did Realtor's hype ever stand up? They have been accomplished liars since the beginning of the profession.

    Feel free to stay where you are. Woodland is full of drugs, gang violence, and robbery. Much nerve to criticize Davis given where you live.

    If you analyze where crime takes place in communities consistently, you will see there are isolated area's with those individuals in these area's that are involved in creating these crime statistics. Take Oakland for example. High crime rate, one of the highest in the big cities of our nation. Look at the stats. Major crimes (murder, rape, drive by shootings) generally happen in specific area's of the city. Does that make the 1+ million people who live in Oakland and Berkeley area at high risk? Not so. People are smart and don't go into areas where high crime takes place (unless you live in these area's then you are at greater risk). So back to Davis and Woodland. Woodland has about 118 validated gang members and an increase of drive by shootings happening recently. I haven't heard of any drive by shootings in Davis. Crime is everywhere but does that mean Davis is a bad city. NO. It is still an exceptional place to live and so is Woodland by the way. The most crime reports I read on a regular bases for Davis are DUI arrest, drunk in public, (oh to be young and stupid at times while going to college) shop lifting at Target, Nugget, under age drinkers in parks, some burglaries here and there (because people do not lock up before they leave home) and if you look at who the police arrest about 60% are people who DO NOT live in Davis but come here and then get arrested. Just my informed opinion.
