Crime in Atlanta is serious and rampant. As in the case of most US cities, Atlanta is plagued by poverty and a massive overflow of weaponry, particularly guns. Generally, every week brings at least one murder and a couple of rapes. Therefore, pay attention. Be careful at night. Do not walk alone. Stay in well-lit areas. Protect your valuables -- don't carry them at all, and if you do, put them in your front pocket. Just be careful, and stay NORTH of the East-West MARTA line when possible. It could save your life. Not to scare you or anything.
The biggest risk always seemed to be getting outside of the tourist area, which is obvious, in downtown Atlanta. Also, don't walk around by yourself in a place called Bankhead. It is immediately west of Georgia Tech University.
Atlanta is like any other big city, we have our bums, pickpockets and crime. Don't be out at night alone, don't ride Marta alone, and when driving, keep your doors locked.
