This is a discussion on City Crime Rankings 2008-2009 within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; CQ Press: City Crime Rankings 2008...

An armed man is a citizen.
An unarmed man is a subject.
The data collection method used by the states of Illinois and Minnesota for the
offense of forcible rape did not meet the FBI’s UCR guidelines in 2007 (Rockford,
Illinois is an exception). Given that the rape numbers were not available, the following
cities are not included in the comparative analysis: Aurora, IL; Chicago, IL; Elgin, IL;
Joliet, IL; Naperville, IL; Peoria, IL; Springfield, IL; Bloomington, MN; Duluth, MN;
Minneapolis, MN; Rochester, MN; and St Paul, MN.

We all almost there....
4th worst Las Vegas
I carry a gun cause I can't carry a cop.
Well, doesn't even include any cities in WV... I think they trunicated a bit too much, because the FBI has us up there in crimes per thousands of people.
St. Louis: 4th worst.
O'Fallon, MO: 3rd best.
I live in between the two. No matter--the criminals have figured out how to use the highways.
If you were mayor in some of these places would it not make sense to have your police not meet the UCR guidelines intentionally? There have been allegations that Houston PD intentionally misclassified a bunch of murders so as to slant the stats at the behest of the chamber of commerce. The allegation continued that the feeling was if the true murder rate was made public the city would lose some conventions and the revenue they generate.

Richmond ranked 49th. I believe that is down from the last ranking, but still not acceptable.

Oh look, Detroit is 3rd! Good thing I only visit for Tigers games. And Flint is 6th hahaha I think MI averages the worst. That is an average of 4.5 for it's top two.
Detroit is number one with crime by population...anyone see a trend here?
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Beaverton, OR 343. Think I will stay put and hunker down.
BTW, Chicago is at the bottom with statistics "not available". Someone probably stole them before they could be reported.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
