In The Loo, 7/ 3/2008 - 4:12pm "I am so sick of people complaining that downtown is too crime-ridden & they will never go there to see concert at the new arena or anything else downtown for that matter. Downtown NEEDS YOU, needs people to fill the streets & send the cockroaches running elsewhere. Funny how backwards Tulsa is....a few years ago I moved downtown to "get away from it all".
Crime is everywhere & downtown Tulsa is not the worst of it. True, I would not feel comfortable walking by myself downtown at night. Know why? Because it's empty! If there where more people walking around & hanging out I would feel completely comfortable walking alone. It's the dark, desolate streets that give criminals a nice place to hang out & wait for you. I don't see them around Cherry Street. Too many people & too much attention drawn to someone who looks suspicious. Do you think you will be harrassed by the homeless while walking with your family to an event at the new arena or a game at the new Driller's Stadium? Probably not since 50 other people will be walking around you in the same direction. Again, too much attention & activity sends the creeps scrambling for the dark.
And another thing...to all you chunky-butts that complain about walking 5 blocks to an event, GET OFF THE COUCH YOU LAZY DOLT.
Here's you: "I don't want to walk 5 blocks to my destination."
Here's what it translates to: "I am 100% lazy & I don't want to have to move my body any more than I have to. I mean, it's hard work for me to walk 5 parking spaces to see a movie at the AMC, and you want me to walk 5 BLOCKS?! What if it's raining? What if it's cold? What if it's hot?"
People downtown in other cities just deal with it. Tulsa has pretty mild weather so here's a suggestion: put on a coat, carry an umbrella & suck it up ya big pussy."
