Will Buckhead be safer this week knowing Ray Lewis is in Tampa? 

Cliff, Atlanta:
Absolutely no. I worked as a bartender for eight years in Buckhead and lots of drinking, lots of partying, things just go wrong. Stuff always has been going on. If he hadn't been a celebrity, nobody would have heard about it. I saw random acts of violence the whole time I was there. It didn't have anything to do with the Super Bowl. Mostly fistfights, jealous lovers, but it was one hair away [from] escalating into stuff that could have been more violent.

Grace, Atlanta:
I definitely believe it will be. We all feel safer when the individual we have labeled as "the bad guy" is not in the area. I'm a native New Yorker. I've seen the worst. I'm not one that scares very easily. If someone told me Ray Lewis was coming down to my area, I wouldn't strap myself down. I would just prepare knowing he was in my area and I would prepare in watching over my shoulder and just being more cautious, watching the steps that I take.

Thom, Atlanta:
I'd be scared of Ray Lewis if I was fourth and 10 in an NFL playoff game and had to make that touchdown pass. He doesn't scare me, it's the women who are superficial enough to treat me as a potential sex object that scare me. These girls you've never known before say, 'Hey, how are you doin?' and they hit on you. Buckhead is known for people that hit on each other, and I don't want to be part of that scene. It's superficial.
