ICE, you need to relax brother/sister. Nobody like crime, but you can not let it drive your entire life. Nashville is nowhere near as dangerous and crime filled as Memphis. I could go to downtown Nashville any night of the week and walk around and never be in fear for my safety. Can not say that about Memphis. Memphis has been rumored to “under report or never report” the seriousness of some of the crimes that happen there to keep lower on the list of crime ridden cities. Also Nash is a bigger city, and bigger MSA, than Memphis and lower crime rate. Like many people on here I bave been in a lot of dangerous town such as Memphis, St. Louis, Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Newark, NYC etc and Nashville is nowhere near as dangerous. But like anywhere, even a small town, there is the potential to be the victim of a crime. But get out and enjoy the time with your family, show them the world and keep them safe while expanding their horizons. That is what I did and even though they are adults now, I still do to a lesser degree with the kids. Climbing down from my soapbox now, MUCH LOVE TO YOU MY FELLOW VOLS FAN.
Vile people are ruining most of the larger towns. I would not walk down the streets of Nashville after dark. You can if you want to. It is your ass.
