USA: Find Your City on the Most Dangerous List

The Morgan Quitno Press has released its annual America's Most Dangerous Cities list - is your city on it? As your peruse the list, some of the rankings will seem realistic, some will seem like the listmakers are on some serious crack.

See for yourself:

#16: Memphis, TN

it's worth pointing out that the downtown area (i believe) is one of the most dangerous downtown areas in the nation. i think counting that alone brings it up to the top five.

Mine is neither on the list nor 'missing'. It's just safe.

But Richmond, VA, where my family is... #19 most dangerous. Who knew.

I noticed that too. I thought I was seeing things. How could somewhere like Souix City Iowa be there and not Chicago?

Quote:
This year, several cities of 75,000+ population did not report complete crime information and thus were not included in the Safest Cities rankings. Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD were the largest and most significant cities for which data were not available. The other cities are: Aurora, IL; Naperville, IL; Peoria, IL; Rockford, IL; Springfield, IL and Wichita Falls, TX. Specific reasons for these cities' data problems are as follows:

Chicago and Other Illinois Cities: For several years, rape numbers submitted by cities in the state of Illinois have not met the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) guidelines. This remains the case with 1999 crime data. According to state statisticians, the state of Illinois tracks "sexual assault," which includes not only female rapes, but also offenses such as male rape, sodomy, etc. For these reasons, Chicago, Aurora, Naperville, Peoria, Rockford and Springfield once again are not found in this year's Safest Cities rankings.

blah. nice to see how these states and cities are keeping SUCH good statistics. it's not like their citizens have a right to know how dangerous of a city they live in or anything.

i have a ton of family in and around baltimore, some are older. it'd be nice if i could know what kind of city he's living in, and the likelihood of him being mugged or otherwise hurt.

i can see why atlanta is #2. i've been there, and i was told by many to avoid many places at night. i was scared shitless having to walk across the street from my hotel to a store to fetch razor blades (stupid me brought my razor but no blades! i wasn't going to go to a concert with hairy pits.) and i was nervously clutching my mom the whole time. hehe, like they would attack me, but once they see my mom (who's 5' tall), they'll back off!
