    There are area of Chicago that are very dangerous. But any rational person would recognize they are in a bad area. This would be particularly true for white foreign tourists

    What does everyone make of this? Having visited the city on a number of occasions i'm sad because it really is a great city to visit. Given the high number of murders, shootings etc is the warning warranted or is it an overrecation? Interested to hear from everyone but especially from posters who live or grew up in the Chicago.
    There are large swaths of Chicago that are okay, but if you follow the Chicago Tribune or CBS local Chicago, you'll notice the areas of that city that is unsafe, and is the primary reason for Chicago being the murder capital of the United States: FBI: Chicago passes New York as murder capital of U.S.

    While some may get uppity about the French telling their citizens to be cautious or to avoid certain areas of the U.S., first thing, we (State Department) do the same thing and the places that are highlighted ARE dangerous.

    It seems they're on to us. We need a new plan.

    Re: France issues travel warning to Parts of Chicago.

    I spent three years living in Iraq, obviously I'm still here to talk about it, and it has some amazing sites to see and people to meet.
    That doesn't make it any less dangerous.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation reported 500 murders in Chicago in 2012, up sharply from the 431 recorded in 2011. That certainly seems like something that would warrant a travel warning to me.

    This is not an over-reaction, it's an absolutely reasonable warning.

    I have to wonder if a similar warning was issued for other cities in the USA, like Detroit.

    If not, someone didn't do their job.

    What they need to ban is violent people who kill others for no good reason.

    You don't have to have a gun to kill someone, a brick will get the job done.

    If this stuff keeps happening, Chicago won't get the Olympics even if Obama makes a personal appeal.
