I'm picturing you are housebound all day.

Gonna have to go with modern day Detroit and Chicago.
My great grandpa was an old lawman, and he used to roundup those on the wanted posters.
I think in modern cities there are entire regions that cannot be policed in the United States.

Old west: transport by horse, which is hazardous per mile traveled; no antibiotics, so a simple cut could kill you; no food safety of any kind, so every meal could sicken you; no childhood vaccinations, so you had a fair chance of not seeing 5; absolutely no concept of workplace safety whatsoever, so work could maim you. Yeah, going with the old West.

I know what you mean, but it would have been even more hazardous to be an aboriginal in the old West than a white man, what with all the genociding and all.
