List Rules Only list cities with high rates of murder, rape, robbery, assault and theft. Vote on cities perceived to be the most dangerous.

A list of cities that are perceived to be the most dangerous in the United States. These cities are judged on six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Stuff happens here that you'd only thought would happen in a violent movie. Many of these metropolitan areas in the USA have had decades of blight and urban decay that have led them to this state. But it's possible for a city with a high crime rate to improve their statistics with better policing, rising incomes, gentrification etc - for example, you no longer see Los Angeles or New York City on this list. Cities on this list must have a population of at least 75,000 to be included. Source: www.cqpress.com.
