Christchurch is full of hardened criminals and crime. An extremely dangerous place to live.

I definitely dont feel safe walking at night - I have seen many hoodlums cause trouble.

Another thing I am often worried about which could be put on a separate category, is my pet being stolen for use of dogfighting whilst I am out at work etc. It could be classified as theft, though I dont consider pets as property, they are family members. I have seen many suspicious characters on my street, and I always worry for my pets safety in comparison to property.
