You can look at that two ways: 1) Temple must be pretty scary to need all of those cops, or 2) Temple makes a significant effort to keep riff raff away from the school. Maybe it's a little bit of both. But Temple is by no means a war zone, and you don't have to dodge "gang-bangers and crackheads as you walk by the projects" like you have asserted in other posts. North Broad is not the Main Line. But it isn't Beirut, either.
A large police force doesn't impress me. The fact of the matter is that Philadelphia is the most dangerous city of 1million+ people, and that North Philly is one of the more dangerous parts of Philly. Most people on these forums don't come from crime-stricken areas and they deserve to have a good understanding of what an area is like
A "good understanding" would probably be based upon accurate representations of the actual conditions at Temple Law, which hardly adhere to your version of things.
Penn is in West Philly. West Philly is just as dangerous (if not moreso) than North Philly. So don't go there, Everybody. And Yale. Yale is in New Haven. New Haven has lots of poor people who want to rob you. Don't go there, either. USC? Forget it. UChicago? That's out, too. Your scaredy cat logic can be applied in an endless array of fun ways.
Where do you go to school, by the way? Full disclosure would require you to provide this information so that people can make a truly informed decision about whether or not to listen to your dumb ass-edness.
EDIT/POST-SCRIPT: I don't come from a crime-stricken area. In fact, I come from a place with almost no crime (I think one time when I was a kid someone smashed our mail box. And another time, my neighbor's dad argued real loud with his mom and the cops came. That was about it.). Somehow, I am managing to survive.
