Sorry, its not safe anymore.
It never was. I was attacked by bullies all of the time. And even back then, there were numerous warnings about strangers offering candy.
I'd be about as likely to let a kid walk to school today in the same town I did. I would just make sure the kid had pepper spray and some pretty specific instructions about what to do if.

There may have been child bullies, but there weren’t adult perverts waiting to rape, torture, and kill you. Big difference. In this violence- and pornography-driven culture of today, things just aren’t the same as they were in the 50s, 60s, or even 70s. I think it all started to change in the 80s. That’s when pornography started to go mainstream. Anyone remember Star Search and the “soft porn” model segments? I think that was the start of it.
