SHOCKED AND DISMAYED! I just did a crime comparison between NYC and St John's NL and they only differ by one or two points. Barbarians are destroying Manhattan and St. JOHN'S has a higher percentage of people afraid their house will be broken into. If this is true, I'm ready to give up. I want out of USA and are there any safe places left!!!
