That doesn't have to be true. A majority of Illinois' crime happens in urban areas, but then again a large majority of the urban/built up areas of the state are extremely safe with virtually no violent crime.

In one study, Florida has 11 cities in the top 100, while Texas has only 5.

We can also do quick scans to compare crime rates between cities.

It crazy how safe Texas border cities are. Even with the high amount of drugs going through.

Anecdotally speaking, I've never felt unsafe in a border town, at least on the U.S. side. But I also have never entangled myself with gangs or the drug trade.

I'd have to say California. Those politicians are deadly cruel and unforgiving.
