Well I'm sure it's not even half as bad as what Ive heard Detroit is.
I just looked the crime statistics up and in Auckland for 2007 there were six homicides, 1,307 minor assaults and 1,210 serious assaults. 8,647 burglaries, and 17,025 thefts. City's population is 1.3 million.
Just did a google search of Detroit and in 2006 they had 418 murders, and 13,143 assaults, with 18,134 burglaries and 21,287 thefts. Wikipedia says population is 918,000.
So yeah, Detroit seems a lot more dangerous. But I think with every city if you go to the wrong area or bump into the wrong person there'll be trouble. Anyway, this is going way off-topic, sorry
