That is the thing that bugs me a little.
I have been in places in Dallas, St. Louis, Memphis, Miami, Atlanta that were very scare. I have been warned away from certain places in New Orleans.
I've been places in Miami and L.A. where I had to be "escorted" by a local or I might not have been safe.
Tallahassee doesn't have anything like that? There is no place in this town I wouldn't take my wife at any hour of the day or night. The roughest
bars and roughest neighborhoods are still very safe unless you happen to be trying to buy drugs, LOL!
I think all the "date rapes" from the Universities, and all of the armed robberies of drunk kids walking home from the bars skew the numbers. On that
same note though, I know probably only about 1 in 4 rapes actually get reported, so is that particular problem really so rampant?
I was discussing this with my wife, and she relayed a story from college where she was certainly raped, but she didn't do anything about it. Passed
out alone in a room, woke up in the middle of someone she kind of knew having their way with her. She also told me all of her friends have similar
stories? Are crimes against women so rampant that the women just expect it? I honestly have a big problem with the date rape scenario where "she
wants it, she doesn't want it, maybe just a little, no stop, etc." BUT, I think if someone is alone in a room, and somebody else just walks in and
takes advantage of their body, this is clear rape, not date rape, just plain rape! It shocks me that the women I know take this for granted and shrug
