I have noticed that many followups and e mails to me has first thanked me for being honest and then either agreed with me or not ,ofcourse based on experience. Also remember as a cop I concentrate on that aspect, if you like jazz ,you might concentrate on that. But I noticed nobody actually disagreed with me, except someone who stands to make money on tourism. I am not tell anyone not to go ,but I am telling you what happens or has happened. By all means go ,just take your head out from beneath you buttucks. Yes, all large cities have crime, thats not what my post is talking about, WE AS FOREIGNERS OR WEALTHY PEOPLE ARE A TARGET THAT IS EASY TO FIND, AND EXPLOIT, AND THERE IS NO HELP UNLESS YOU BRIBE POLICE OR HAVE OWN GANG. READ MY LIPS. GO TO UKRAINE , GO TO PARIS, ETC BUT BE AWARE OF THE TYPE OF CRIME THAT HAPPENS AND MENTALITY INVOLVED. MY ADVICE ABOUT HOW TO RESPOND IF SURROUNDED MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE BECAUSE ITS BASED OPPOSITE OF WHAT WE ARE TAUGHT IN STATES. BELIEVE ME I WOULD NEVER TELL A CIVILIAN WHAT I TOLD YOU TO DO.
