Everyone knows that when the temperature rises, and school is out crime tends to too increase, In some cities summer is also known as the "killing" season. My question is which cities do you think have it the worse?

IMO it would be NYC, even though its not nearly as bad as it used to be, so many people living so close together under such humidity, bad things are bound to happen. New Orleans is another city that comes to mind when I think of heat induced crime waves, but I'm sure it happens in all cities though not necessarily to the same degree for every city.

Personally thats why I prefer winter, and am not looking foward to summer.
They're starting early this summer.

There is no opinion, only facts.

New York City is the safest large city in the United States year round.

I like summer WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than winter. You just gotta know the places to avoid. But worst cities for Killing season, would probably be somewhere down south(NO, Memphis, Baton Rouge, Jax, Miami, Dallas, Houston, ATL), or somewhere in the DENSE north(Philly, Camden, Newark, Bmore, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Buffalo, NYC????Maybe)

Yea, but it just recently (within the past decade or so) got that way. Native new yorkers probably still remember the 80's in haunting detail.

And don't nobody feel like looking up exact numbers.

Native Miamians remember Miami in the 80's, native Houstonians remember Houston in the 80's, native Angelinos remember Los Angeles in 80's, Native Chicagoans remember Chicago in the 80's, the point I'm trying to make is, there were like a trillion different murder capitals from the late 70's to the early 90's, I don't think NYC was much worse.

Miami was on a whole nother in the 80's. None of those other cities even came close to the carnage seen in miami in the early 80's. Every where was bad, but not everywhere was the murder cap.

NYC in 2010 is kept relatively peaceful through stringent gun laws, and harsh punishments.

That's what I heard is keeping NYC's murder rate down. The South has more relaxed gun laws, BUT the South also has harsher punishments for crimes, YET the cities down here are still much higher in Murder and overall crime rates. Especially when you think of cities like Houston and Dallas, Texas has some of the harshest punishments in the WHOLE US for crimes, and in Florida they have those "Use A Gun And It's 10-20-LIFE"(10yrs 20yrs to LIFE)" billboards in EVERY underprivileged, dangerous, notorious and ghetto neighborhood from Jacksonville to Southern Miami-Dade and EVERYWHERE in-between. Yet none of this has really helped.

instead of reading your statistics nerd. how about you come to nyc and live in the south bronx , upper manhattan past 96th on the east and past 125th on the west , north/east/central brooklyn , northern staten island , parts of southern queens(jamaica/south jamaica/far rockaway) , and parts of northern queens(elmhurst/corona) in the summer time and then we will see how much you brag about nyc being safe.

sometimes you got to hate geeks and nerds all their so called facts are from the internet but they never actually explore anywhere actually silly virgins.
