I have no clue why this question popped up from 2012 but Watermelon Road is one of the safest areas in Tuscaloosa, is in an excellent school zone and possibly irrelevant as a crime that happened 30 years ago, less than two miles from Nick Saban's home. ... more

Section 8 has done more harm then good. Their moving into the suburbs and bringing their problems/ways with them. Crime has increased. Their are 10-20 people living in one house. The streets which are for cars are their childrens play ground. They park many cars in the driveways, on the grass, and the cars clutter the streets. There is paper and bottles thrown every where. America is starting to look like a third world country. When President Obama made changes to section 8, he did not make changes that would allow them to move into his neighborhood. It takes hard work and endurance to obtain a certain life style. Should I be punished because I work, and take care of my home? Just so you know I'm black. I have had a lot of hungry and sleepless nights. I'm a child of a mother who was on welfare. This is a system that stinks, and where middle class people are punished. If you want a better life, make the right decisions, do the right things. Stop getting all these handouts! I'm talking to Mexican's, Black's, White's, and others, because they all take advantage of the system. The flood gates have been open for crime in my neighborhood. Shame on President Obama!.By the way I live in Humble. ... more

Only murder and suicide must be disclosed in Texas. You might want to ask the neighbors. There is always one nosey talkative in each neighborhood.

Your realtor is correct. You need to contact the local police department or go to their website for accurate information. Trulia gets their information from public sources and not all crimes are made public. ... more

Skip the crime maps. Best method - visit or go online to the local police department's website. They are not bound by Fair Housing laws and can tell you which areas are safe and which are not. ... more
