This list cannot be accurate, Detroit is not #1. Anyone who as ever seen the ruins of Detroit knows that Detroit must be #1 on any list of dangerous cities worth looking at.

Louisiana, the most french state in the US is also the most dangerous and one of the poorest
And Detroit, created by french people, is in ruins and so dangerous......
Apparently the french culture (my country) is a curse for the USA

what do most of these cities have in common? very small physical city limits. crime rankings are misleading and fail to tell the whole story. they do not account for crime distribution. most of these cities' violent crimes are concentrated in a few select zip codes, not throughout the entire city. they just happen to have some really bad neighborhoods. furthermore, random crime is extremely rare in all cities; most are gang or drug related. to call the entire city "dangerous" is unfair and patently false.

it's also worthwhile to mention that chicago does not report its crimes to the fbi, so it will never appear on a list like this.

I'm surprised that N.O. is still #1 since after Katrina, 250,000 flocked to Texas. Maybe they finally went back home.
