Insurance.Com ^ | 3 August 2012 | Mark C. Smith

Posted on 08/14/2012 4:15:21 PM PDT by Vigilanteman

The odds of having your car stolen are higher in these 10 metropolitan areas. But you can take steps to protect your ride, and they might even earn an insurance discount.

The bad news for California drivers? Your state had the greatest number of hot spots in the country for auto thefts in 2011, according to a National Insurance Crime Bureau report released recently.

Gee! What a coinkydink. 7 of the top 10 are in California. 9 of the top 10 are on the left coast. 8 of the top 10 are cities with high populations of illegal aliens.

I'm just sure it is a coincidence.

But what is Anderson, S.C. doing on the list? I've been there and it is a generally nice town with good people.

Yes, coincidence. All cultures are the same, right?

I’m surprised San Diego is not on the list. Cars stolen here are often over the border before they’re even reported as stolen. Of course, there are no ILLEGALs here. /s

No surprise to we who lived there.

After 50+ years in So Cal, Texas now has my allegiance.

Stew in your liberal juices, So Cal. And your fellow liberal paradises such as Washington...

Most of the California cities on this list are in the San Joaquin Valley. Victor Davis Hanson, who lives in the Selma area and teaches in Fresno, has often described the San Joaquin Valley as being like the Third World.

Some months back, Boston's mayor, Mumbles Menino defended illegal aliens that were wanted for GTA.

More recently, he briefly led the rash of illegal municipal government attacks on Chick-Fil-A.

I have 2 cars. One of them is my is my winter time go around car which is a 1996 ford Taurus I picked up at an auction for 1500 bucks 7 years ago. Odds on somebody stealing that one are about zero. My other is my baby, my 1966 Toyota FJ-40 which I rescued from the midwest in 1998. That vehicle will be pried from my cold dead fingers. Though not a high risk of theft from regular car thieves, it does have a high risk of theft for joyriding from idiot teenagers. For that one I have a very well hidden kill switch, that is used daily. I can easily afford a nicer in town car, but don’t see the need to impress anybody...besides, people whom I’d be more inclined hang out with are more impressed with the landcruiser.

Naw. There’s just lots of crime in Anderson. The town is made up mostly of white meth-heads and black thugs.

The ‘burbs are fine, but the city itself is a freakin’ zoo.

How about that state income tax calculation comparison?
And the comparison on Auto insurance for each city
And the comparison of unemployment rates?
Uhaul rates California to Texas?
Rates of companies leaving one state for the other?
Rates of new business startups comparison?
Rates of business failures per state?
Cost of a gallon of gas or milk comparison?
Bankruptcy rates comparison by state?
Foreclosure rate comparison?

As always Dragnet, you are set on selling a bankrupt state to people that live someplace where you are allowed to own a business and a gun. California used to be a great example to the country of growth and opportunity.

Now California is an example of what happens when the lunatics run the asylum. The sane folk leave. As company after company exits to Texas, they did the math.

In Texas we still have leadership and promise. It hasn’t been perfect, but it has been sane.

With the TX much easier CCR, it is mow 100% more deadly for someone to rob me. It brings my attack % to nearly zero.

L.A. was great but when you spend all your money on illegals and the lazy, eventually the money goes away from protection.

And I am in Irving, which has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.

If I get a chance to put a bullet in the head of a burglar, I can make the trend even downward (in a good way).

You can walk from Irving to downtown Dallas in a short time.

Didn't mean to ring your bell but when ya say, "After 50+ years in So Cal, Texas now has my allegiance stew in your liberal juices", but your crime in the big cities in Texas, when compared to big cities in CA, are through the roof.

And if crime relates to liberalism as you suggested, I would say it's you who are in the liberal paradise.

Los Angeles, CA is 48.4% less dangerous to live in than Dallas, TX.

And yet Plano, Texas (part of the Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex) is #1 on that website's "Top 100 Cities" list - and you'd have to average Dallas with not only Plano but also Carrollton, Frisco, Addison, Farmer's Branch, etc., to geographically match L.A. Just curious - do you know where areavibe.com gets the data for its comparisons? I don't see any details listed in the "About" section.

I believe most California home and probably auto insurance rates are much lower than other places, mainly because we, for the most part don’t have wild winter weather.

Also, we don’t have the tax man come to our house, like they do in Pennsylvania, when our loved one dies. I couldn’t believe it when I visited Pennsylvania about a week after my husband’s uncle died, and they were waiting for the tax man to come and go through their entire house toting up the value of their belongings. That was really strange, and just WRONG.

There’s a lot about California that is better than other states, even though the place is now being run by the looney left. It wasn’t that long ago that we elected Ronald Reagan as governor.

But y’all enjoy the wonderful Texas heat, I’ll stick with my cool ocean breezes, thank you very much.

Signed, born in Houston and glad to be out of that hell hole.

I had one car. It was a 1994 Buick Century. Who would steal that car?
It was stolen from me a few months ago.
It was found a few days later, engine blown, less than 50 miles away.
Now I am in the hole for many months, paying for a new used car.
Thanks to “cash for clunkers” there are very few dependable used cars left on the market, they were all destroyed.
What I could have bought for cash with the insurance money I received for my fully insured stolen vehicle no longer exists.

25 miles, more if you figure on the spurs but I assume Harry Hines. At 15 minutes per mile (a hustle, baby), you can get to the Arts District in 6 - 7 hours.

No bell ringing — you are just wrong. L.A. and Irving are apx. the same. But I don’t pay Income Tax (productivity penalty).

>>And if crime relates to liberalism as you suggested, I would say it’s you who are in the liberal paradise.<<

By now, Los Angelenos just steal from each other. It is a property swap. Net Zero.

No, I'm right, and the above statistics on this thread clearly back it up.

You're the one that threw in Irving, not I. BTW, Irving is only about 15 miles from downtown Dallas, and just a couple minutes by car and literally borders west Dallas.

Well, yes, and that's partly my point. It is more about the percent of illegal aliens in the population than about how urbanized an area may be. As the crime statistics poster pointed out, Los Angeles is actually lower in many major crime statistics (save auto thefts) than cities like Dallas, Philadelphia and even Pittsburgh.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be at least partly due more to a dependence on the automobile and the famous LA traffic gridlock which makes a quick getaway after the crime more chancey.

Look at your numbers. Like the man said, there are lies, damned lies and statistics. Violent crime in Irving is about 1/2 of L.A.

Burglary and Theft are the big deltas. I am in North Irving so we don’t have numbers per se. It is like lumping Woodland Hills, Studio City and Encino in with South Central L.A. and Boyle Heights — yeah, it is all Los Angeles but the crime profiles from the areas are, let us say, a bit different.

I took my morning walk along the riverwalk today — people leave furniture, kids toys. BBQs, etc. unsecured and unattended on their decks and patios. It’s how we roll in North Dallas.

And if my fellow Irvingers (Irvingites? Irvinquaos?) do not avail themselves of the Texas CCW laws, there is not much I can do. But if someone wants to rip me off the cost to me is 15 cents worth of lead. As a Castle Law state, Texas is cool with that. In L.A. you can only stand there and watch them take your stuff.

Dallas crime makes LA appear like the shinning city on the hill, and why you were told you live right on top of a major crime zone, which you attempted to deny.

LOL!

Like the man said, there are lies, damned lies and statistics.

This begs the question, are you denying the stats regarding Irving?

Take your time...LOL!

Since the question does not contain its own answer, it “begs” nothing. It may RAISE a question but that is not what you said. Being a kind and generous soul, I will assume you meant the latter and continue the discussion accordingly.

For the sake of argument, I assume we are looking at the statistic you posted differently. Irving is on the left, L.A. on the right — yes? If so, you probably need to look at your posts vis a vis the numbers in your posts.

I also notice you continue to avoid my points on CCW and taxes. I am PERSONALLY much safer, give that I am armed and can defend myself.

As I said: “lies, damned lies and statistics.”

As far as the timing of my response — I work for a living. I currently can spend a few minutes here and there to check on FR and similar sites. But it is not a continual status.

HUH??

This is not a complex question, and this question is a question for you to answer! In other words, the question does not come with it's own answer...(wow)

(This is going to be fun)

You are forensically challenged. “Begging the question” is a logical fallacy (and the smallest of your offenses). A question may be raised but only a question that answers itself (e.g. “If I am always right how can I be wrong?”) is begged. I am happy to assist you in curing your ignorance.

Please respond to my questions or admit you dug a deep hole in your attempt to bury a shovel. I will repeat them if you are unwilling or unable to scroll back.

Lets examine this exchange shall we?

"you are just wrong. L.A. and Irving are apx. the same."

Then after seeing the stats and say:

""Violent crime in Irving is about 1/2 of L.A.""

Then you state:

"Like the man said, there are lies, damned lies and statistics."

I responded: Well, this begs the question, are you denying the stats regarding Irving?

Then ya make this statement:

"Since the question does not contain its own answer, it “begs” nothing.

Do you realize what a fool you sound like?

((wow))

You continue to stand on your stupidity. I tried to help you but you insist on being ignorant, forensically and factually. If you are too stupid to understand what a logical fallacy is, you are probably beyond anyone’s help.

Since you are unable to scroll back, I repeat my questions:

1) In your tables, is Irving listed on the first (leftmost) column? If so, you got some ‘splaining to do.

2) Which of YOUR statistics are you unable to comprehend?

3) Do you understand what forensic analysis means? Do you know what a logical fallacy is?

Knowledge: get it, use it, make it part of your life. Purposeful ignorance is just pathetic.

How do they steal modern cars with those new-fangled electronic keys that cost $200 to replace or more? It isn’t like you can hotwire them or anything.
