Re: “Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

I was born and raised in Miami and moved to Savannah for exactly one year. I feel MUCH safer in Miami than I do in Savannah. Crime is no joke in Savannah. I feel the city does everything they can to hide all of this from tourists rather than actually combat it. I lived on the outskirts of the historic district on Bull street and heard more gunshots in one year than in 27 years in Miami (including areas like Little Havana, Downtown and Miami Beach) Savannah is beautiful to visit...but that's just it, visit. Every long time resident I met acts like gunshots are no big deal and crime is just something you deal with. No way. My spouse is from NYC and didn't feel as scared as she did in Savannah.Local government needs to stop trying to sweep crime under the rug and fix it asap before it ruins this little city.

Also to respond to these disgusting comments, yes racism is alive and well in Savannah. Don't be fooled by the presence of SCAD. White and straight reigns supreme here. Bigots are everywhere and I personally was disgusted by everyday comments I heard about other races, ethnicities and sexual orientation. Still very much a southern cesspool of racist ideology.
