Thornton, CO, named America’s safest city

      1. I’ve always thought it was, too. But my friend works there and has been talking about escaped convicts and a hostage situation just up the street from his office. I was really surprised.

    1. It is quite untrue. Unfortunately our media like to sensationalize everything, focusing only on the bloodiest, most tragic stories they can find. In any of our big cities, there are dangerous neighborhoods in the inner city. I’ve always lived in suburban areas where the worst crimes we encounter are mostly teen vandalism.

    1. I didn’t realize Little Rock was any more dangerous than most cities its size. As I said, I don’t know how these rankings were calculated and they could be completely meaningless. As far as I’m concerned, any envy of Thornton should be based entirely on its proximity to the mountains.

      1. Little Rock’s been bad lately, getting back to where it was in the 1990s. Glad I just work there.
        Mountains are always a plus. I haven’t been hiking in a while but it’s a great way to spend a day. 👍🏻🗻

... and that's my two cents
