It depends on how you look at it. The most dangerous MSA in Missouri is Springfield followed by Kansas City then St. Louis. City vs city comparison isn't an apples to apples comparison. Some areas like Anchorage Ak have a low city rating but ranks high on the MSA level. St. Louis doesn't have its suburbs so it appear more dangerous than what it is. It may help St. Louis with a promoting itself as a place to live and do business.

How is Boston so soft? They’ve had some years in the last 20 years with some low homicides counts in the 30’s? With there demographics of 150k blacks and 100k Hispanics and a supposedly tough gangsta white population the movies portray they should see over 100 a year but rarely even get half that.

If I was a gangsta or drug pusher I would set up shop in Boston it doesn’t seem like a hard place to take over.

Thank you. That's actually not that bad considering the small size of the city and the fact that Miami's homicides don't spike as much as other cities when it gets warmer out.

The Cleveland number may be missing a couple, but so far it seems to be doing better. We'll see if it holds up, though, because I've seen it before recently where the city enters June around 40 then the summer hits and all hell breaks loose and the end number finishes in the typical 130 range.
