No Go Zones in US?

If Jeb is aware of US cities with the same sort of no-go zones as this article reports, I'd like to know which cities those are. US Police Departments react rapidly to open challenges which seek to prevent officers from enforcing the laws in any particular area. Large urban area politicians often seek to restrict their police force from actively enforcing the laws in certain neighborhoods, but most often the result is rioting and the need for even stronger law enforcement actions to curb the rioters.
Obviously some US locations would have a citizen response similar to that reported, people hiding and afraid to leave their homes (at least at certain times of the day). Large urban centers with disarmed populations seem to be most likely to have that sort of citizen response. Living in a rural area, I don't see that ever becoming a problem for residents of my area.
For Germany, the people will have to take back their streets, or at least find politicians who aren't afraid to let the police do their job.
