    You are more likely to die in a car accident on your way to Raleigh then to get shot in raleigh. The murder rate is quite low for a city and most of the violent crime is in a few block area in SE Raleigh.

    This is the reason that I never go to Raleigh - too many shootings and it is simply not safe.
