Very Scarry city. Most of Houston's areas are drug infested and high rate of crimes against people.

As someone that spent most his life here, I can say from experience that Houston is a very scary place to live. The crime rate is high and the police don't seem to care. It has been getting worse in past few years too. I would not recommend this city to anybody.

This is so true. The crime in Houston and the surrounding areas are on the rise. I'm a native Houstonian and I do not feel safe, hate to watch the news, it's scary as hell!
