    On the other hand, many expat business owners are still alive. And if you get back home by 6 P.M. you should be OK.
    Why to go out in the dark? Just WHY ?!

There was a double murder in Deerfield beach by a 15 yr old. And this is in a very safe city. You see things like this no matter where you live so I don’t get why people think DR is not safe it seems to me like it’s less safe in south Florida than here. Maybe I am not watching the local news enough but it seems like the crime happens in the bad neighborhoods only or perhaps 0i have just been lucky but I never see the police arresting anybody or anything involving the police.

    And all those people that supposedly died from tainted liquor from minibars the FBI toxicology reports came back and it turned out that wasn’t true they died from natural causes. It happens all the time and when you have millions of visitors just statistically speaking your going to have people die that would have died in their home country they just happened to be traveling.

    So I don’t think it’s any more safe in USA than here depending on what area your in.
    I may say for Boca Raton. There are LARGE residential areas where even one undesirable person immediately attracts the attention. And "questions". I have not heard of a murder or home break in Boca Raton ever. Maybe only in some very remote ghetto areas.

    My 16 y/o restavek was robbed by gunpoint of his phone almost a year ago. He said it was in the day time. He also said it's more dangerous for Haitianos than gringos because no one gives a **** what happens to Haitianos.
