There are no dangerous neighborhoods in Denver. Please visit other cities for dangerous neighborhoods. I don't even have to read the article to mock this.

"Dangerous" means different things to different people. Depends where and how you were raised.

Five Points here, haven't felt unsafe once in the past 2 years living here and that includes many late night walks alone back from LoDo or downtown. Never heard of any neighbors having issues save for the occasional stolen bike. In fact I felt much more unsafe and heard many more robbery/mugging stories in Cap Hill. With 16 new developments starting on Welton by Spring 2015 I can guarantee Five Points no longer deserves top spot on this list

Crime has no address! I've never felt unsafe in any of these neighborhoods, not to say that crime doesn't occur but dangerous seems like a stretch.

I had all kinds of Drama around my house in Thornton. A drunk driver drove through my neighbors garage and into their kitchen right across the street. Also a spousal murder/ suicide right behind as well as a meth house bust. I moved :) but I never felt unsafe in my hood. Well once when my neighbors were shooting at eachother. I almost forgot that!! Crazy!

I lived on 33rd and Fillmore for a year in five points and while it was probably best not to wander around at night time, my neighborhood was suburbia compared to places like Chicago or Southside Monroe, LA....

I have zero interest in this topic. Nor in making any substantive point whatsoever here. But I absolutely LOVE it when someone blatantly uses laughable grammar while attacking someone else's grammar. Thanks for the laugh!!
