How is the crime in San Miguel de Allende? How safe is it to travel there?

Wrong, wrong, wrong. San Miguel de Allende is no way as crime-ridden as this page indicates. I moved here from Baltimore, Maryland, Divided States of AmeriKKKa where the sound of gunfire was an almost nightly event. By comparison, SMA is safe as milk. Where did these insane "statistics" come from? Yeah, there's crime here (like everywhere), but these numbers are INSANE.

Your crime rates are low compared to the Cities in the US. I live in Indianapolis and the crime rate has risen every year for the past 10 with around 150 homicides each year. Some parts of the city are not safe after dark. It is even worse in Baltimore , Detroit and Chicago.
The US is the big leagues for crime.
You have nothing to worry about.

Has anybody heard about a shooting between at least 2 people in Los Freyles last night? May 24 2017? One of the participants is dead, that I know for sure. Please write to me if you know something, Thank You Scott

I have lived in SM, 6 months every year, for the past 13 years. As I am more than knowledgable about statistics, I do not remotely agree with the negative high crime indices.
What I have found here is that a crime takes on a never ending life of it's own. A crime committed 6 years ago continues to be a current topic of conversation among the expats. Thus a cumulation of all past crimes seems overwhelming at present. Of course there is crime here, but a little common sense about security and being in the wrong place at the wrong time goes a long way in it does in any place in the world.
