Default Do you live in a dangerous city?

The 5 Most Dangerous Cities in the U.S.
FBI data suggests that these destinations struggle with safety — but hope is on the rise

1. Flint, Michigan
2. Detroit, Michigan
3. St. Louis, Missouri
4. New Haven, Connecticut
5. Memphis, Tennessee

Even though economic woes are up, crime (particularly violent crime) is down in the United States, and it’s been trending downward for the last five years.

I LOVED living in midtown Memphis, TN for about a decade (mostly at Clark Place & Poplar, down near Cleveland, then over by UofM).

I'm from the big bad #1! Flint, MI. Once I grew up and realized there's nothing cool about that, I got my butt out of there.

BANG

Glad you're not one of those who think it's cool and manly to live in a ****ty place. I'm from Chicago and I live in a mostly safe neighborhood, stuff happens a few blocks from where I live though once in a while (drugs, hostage situations etc). I feel pretty safe and my house is well guarded, I wish I could carry though. When I walk at night by myself I always tell myself that I'd feel really stupid if I got jumped (having guns at home but not on me).

The CQ Press's annual study of U.S. crime statistics shows that Camden, NJ is no longer the most dangerous city in the country. However, it did make second on another list.
