    Are these statistics the ones that are used when applying for federal and state anti-crime funding? Or are they the statistics used when promoting themselves when trying to bring in private business?

    Why is Chicago and some cities listed as NA? There is no way Chicago has become a safe city. As a matter of fact, there has been an increase in gang related killings this year over there.

    I saw that. Cleveland is number 7. I cant wait to move out of this city. Too bad its the only place I can find rent low enough until I'm done with school.

    Yeah Chicago and several big cities in Illinois-no data unavailable. The poor schmucks who had the data probably were killed before they could report.

    They got the data. Since it's probably worse than any of the cities listed, Mayor Daley and his cronies do not want to share it and prove that gun control is a joke to the criminals out there.

    Please note that some of these data are not correct. Our local police chief went ballistic over this report; it seems that they counted all of our homicides twice due to their method of collecting reports.

    Still, Baghdad remains slightly safer overall than many US cities.

    My city is notorious in Florida for being dangerous, and the riff-raff nicknamed it "the Big Bang'em." And on that list, we just slide into the top 100. So what's going on?

    Well, the northeast quadrant of this city contains the majority of the criminal activity. One area, just north of downtown, was ranked America's "fourth most-dangerous" in the nation. The rest of the city is placid, and the coastal area concentrates wealth to the extent that the biggest crime problem they have is illegal lawn watering.

    So, I'd have to say that the listing of cities in the manner given doesn't provide much useful information unless you're looking to allocate LE resources or something like that.

    Yeah itís not the 80ís anymore and Robert Mosses does not run the show anymore. NYC is one of the safest cities its size in the world now. Actually it looks like crime wise I made the right choice to leave Massachusetts. Worchester 156th and Boston 113th, actually I have seen one more shooting in Boston then NYC.

Have you driven through the actual "city" of St. Louis. NO ONE lives there, lol. St. Louis's "real" population is in the "greater St. Louis county/area" I would bet big money if they computed the numbers of crime per capita with the whole greater metro area St. Louis would drop CONSIDERABLY down the list. Just sayin... be wary of the "stats"

    besides, 67.8% of all statistics are made up on the spot! :)
    Agree with all the above. But it sure is fun to discuss. Spend the holidays in st peters and did not fear for my life...... Even though my guns were left behind in Houston

    I'd have to disagree with that. Someone in the NYC govt. is not releasing any crime reports like those in Chicago. There is still stuff going on over there and no one wants to report or admit it.
