For example like you want to take a look at the city or a particular place and go sightseeing so you decide to take a walk by yourself or with another friend, to the city or even go to a beach but at 4am!!! At a time where most people is sleeping and the city , the beach or places could be lonely no people around!! I mean you as a tourist don’t know how things are around the city, you are there for the first time and you don’t take some precautions like why are you going out at 4am to take a walk!!!
Then when tourists are murdered in a foreign country, the country itself end up with a bad image worldwide so tourists stop traveling there in order to avoid being the victims of local crimes and tourists start criticizing that country and may tell other friends or tourists, do not go there because crime is all over and police do not do anything about it to catch the bad people.
If im told that a certain place or spot is safe I will still doubt and don’t rely too much of what they tell me I better take my own precautions.
I post this based that last week 2 tourists were murdered in my country in different beach cities. I sent you the links of those news.
It is said that the tourist who was murdered in Tortuguero, she visited the city because they were told that place was peaceful and quiet so they rely on what they were told about the place..

It's costa rica... What do they expect.
I generally trust the US federal guidelines on safe / unsafe countries. Obviously though in poor countries you don't get off the reservation.
Where I live you'd be more likely to murder one of us then us you. You would also be more likely to die of the weather.
#1. It shows that people only care about women. Because 80% of murder victims are men. But people look at the tree because they don't care about the forest. So yeah, if you focus on 1 single aspect of violence (sex), you'll find that women are the majority among this SUBcategory. But the majority of victims are still men and nobody cares and nobody is making a gendered argument on the subject.
#2. Everyone is responsible for himself. You're not responsible of what people do to you but you have a duty to yourself to be responsible and balance between the safety of living recluse and the dangers of exploring the world.
#3. credit cards like visa premier offer good support in case of problems abroad. Wish I had it before a military policeman crashed my rental car and his own car into a bus at 50-60mph in Morocco, with the case being investigated by... his own colleagues and friends who took our passports (probably illegally) a few years ago.

Local law enforcement is always responsible for their guests, but the reality is that you still have to look out for yourself. I respect emergency services and law enforcement most of the time, but you have to judge the situation and their behavior and expressions. Sometimes, emergency services and law enforcement themselves don't know wtf is going on.
