a small city South of Los Angeles, California. (South Central). Compton is Gang Capital of America. Home of the violent street gangs Crips and Bloods/Pirus. This city is drug infested, heavy crimes, drug dealers, gangstas, pimps and prostitutes. Compton is so violent and corrupt the police gave up on Compton and let it rot, also due to the police are scared because Compton started the "Fuck Da Police" movement and police has been getting killed like it aint nothing. There is no active police department in Compton, so you're fucked if you go there and get in trouble. Wear the wrong colors and the crips and bloods gonna kill your bitch ass. A very poor, very violent city. You're pretty much fucked up if you live there. Pure notorious ghetto, known as CPT.
The most dangerousw hood in america is COMPTON!!!!

A place that isn't actually that bad, although it has bad areas it's definitely NOT the most dangerous place. My friend lives in Compton, and theres not even that many black people anymore it's mostly just Mexicans.

It's an over-hyped city since it's not actually so dangerous, now Watts is a different story.
I went to Compton to go to my friend's house.

A fairly small city outside of L.A.. Though not extremely large in population, the entire population that lives in Compton will not think twice about shooting any random nigga that walks by. If, somehow, your life has sunk to the point where you now live in compton, you have officially hit rock bottom. Known only for it's blood soaked ghettos, violent gangs, and daily drug deals, I am officially declaring Compton the NUMER ONE MOST DANGEROUS GHETTO IN AMERICA!
Compton is the only ghetto where a man can kill 4 people in a day, steal some babies, sell a whole bunch of Angel Dust, and still not make the news.
