The most dangerous cities in America
 
According to City Crime Rankings 2008-2009 by Kathleen O'Leary Morgan, Scott Morgan, and Dr. Rachel Boba. I'm surprised that Jackson, Mississippi is on the list and that New York isn't in the top 25. Do you live in one of them?

crime in nyc has gone down a ton. in fact i think last year was the lowest gun deaths since they kept records.

im not at all surprised that NO takes the top spot.

I just moved from Oakland CA (#5 on the list) up to Portland OR. There were parts of Oakland I definitely stayed away from at night.

I'm really surprised that places like Little Rock, Gary, Flint, Youngstown, Minneapolis, are ahead of places like Philadelphia and Newark.

Trenton, NJ deserves honorable mention if a place like Youngstown is being listed.

Richmond, CA is horrible.

bullsh-t List

Dallas should be top 5, seeing as our homicide and armed robbery rates are out the ass

When they determine the most dangerous cities, does it go by number of crimes/population ratio? NYC might have more incidents than Richmond, but it also has 7-8 million people.
