    I am going tomorrow in holidays with my gf, to Amsterdam. I just woked up today, and wanted to check what's the weather like in Amsterdam, and used the News & Weather app from android. Typed Amsterdam and I was surprised to see a good weather but also 4 crime/shooting news for Amsterdam, and I was like wtf ??

    This is my second trip to Amstredam, the first one being around 5 months ago, and it was awesome! I haven't seen anything suspecious nor related to crime (I am not a detective, but just saying), so everything was OK, even better than I thought.

    If somebody lives in Amsterdam, please comment, and let's see what's really going on.
    Is it safe to travel there ?

    Dont worry is nothing. Some muslim radicals killed some people. But if u get kidnapped by ISIS, in the beheading video please give a shot out to BHW.

    Amsterdam is one of the most dangerous cities in Europe, and has the highest murder rate in Western Europe, there's going to be shootings there every once in a while.

    OP crime is everywhere. Keep to public areas and avoid area's where you could be vulnerable.

    Someone from the Netherlands will probably be in here soon complaining about people talking about crime stats and risk management and go all emotional about it and turn it political. :banghead:

    If you don't want to travel to a place where there are murders your options are limited.

    Antarctica or Vatican City would be your best bets.

    That just about sums things up . . . in Amsterdam, or probably anywhere else you want
    to make mention of.

    Amsterdam is one of the greatest cities in Europe.

    And let me tell you, I was once doubtful of going to New York, New York,

    Good idea. OP, could you be a dear and give my store a shout out too in the beheading video? January is the slow season for retail.

    Perhaps living in the US has me jaded but I don't see the big deal over 4 shootings in a big city like Amsterdam. Isn't that to be expected?

    I'm from the Netherlands and I know you will definitely be safe in Amsterdam. The people who are murdered and will be murdered are people in the underground drug business. As long as you avoid these people and don't show up in the 'Bijlmer' you'll be fine.

    why are you offended? are you a radical Muslim? do you support ISIS? if not, then there's no reason for you to get offended...

    do you see Christians getting offended when people talk about the westboro baptist church? i don't think so... and they obviously shouldn't be...

    lighten up... just because you are offended doesn't mean people should stop making jokes.

    you do not get to speak on the behalf of all Muslims... if you don't like a certain joke you are welcome to close the page...

    i don't see where he said anything bad about Muslims... you are offended way too easily...

    seems like you find it hard to differentiate between Muslims and radical Muslim like ISIS...

    maybe other Mulsims didn't respond because there was nothing offensive about his joke... ever thought of that?
