D.C. is the home of such great figures of corruption and graft as: Marion Barry, The entire George W. Bush administration, and both houses of Congress, as well as the future home of Emperor Trump, and his ilk! As such, I am more afraid of the harm they will do to this country and the world than I am of personal harm from a local thug.

If you listen to the media you have a completely inaccurate picture of the United States of America. They mostly report negative stuff happening in this country.
