The title is a bit misleading. It could have said:Lawrence one of America's safest cities in 2007

Or perhaps a better headline would be "Lawrence: Safer than in 2005" (5 murders/non-negligent manslaughter). Or "Lawrence: Way safer than 2000" (9). Or perhaps the headline is accurate -- in that this town is far safer than most towns of its size, which is true -- and people just enjoy living in fear of their own devising.

I mean what defines "SAFE" exactly?I know that nobody has held a gun to my head, but I know for a fact the the high school girls are often offered deadly amounts of illegal substances and coerced into unhealthy sex...I mean so what if we don't have "gangbangers" etc? We have just as deadly drugs and sex that nobody considers a threat to life!

Of course, it could be that all of the bodies haven't been found yet...just a possibility.

LOL yea Sure its the safest place....... apparently they forgot to tally in the crimes the Lawrence Police department have committed against people of Lawrence. I guess the Good oL boys club made sure those were counted
