Vegas's Police Department covers a population of 1,000,000. Vegas city limits has a smaller population though. Same kind of deal for Louisville and Charlotte.

I wouldnt call LA overcrowded just because of how big the city is, if you compare LA's population to its land it really isnt that bad

Because it is either rural or a small town that has a lot of countryside under its political control. It has nothing to do with it being an actual urban entity like New York or Chicago.

A lot of little farming communities with populations less than a thousand have a larger area than cities like Cleveland or Buffalo.

Cleveland without a doubt.

Forbes Magazine came out with its list of "America's Fastest Dying Cities". Out of 10 locations, Ohio has four cities on the list: Cleveland, Youngstown, Dayton and Canton.

High unemployment, a fleeing population and lack of economic growth make up the measuring tools Forbes used to compile the list.
Behind Ohio, Michigan is second with two cities on the list: Flint and Detroit. Flints unemployment is now close to 10 percent.

Much of Cleveland looks like a war zone.

Indianapolis Near north east side is one of the worst areas in the midwest. Murder, prostitution, drugs, gangs, you name it. It has been slowly getting worse for the past three decades now. How do we get it back on track? Easy, put so many police and church organizations there for extended time such as three months and simply flood the gates with positive actions. Lock up every single dirtbag drug dealer, killer, gang banger and take back our damn youth. Everyone has excuses but no action. Non stop, three months, 24-7. Constatant police, community organizers, rallies, 3-4 in the morning! Flood the palce non- stop!!!! Bright lights, video cameras, news crews! Clean up the mess and you will see a better north east side in one year.

Where I live sucks. Well actually if you looked at it's a pretty little town with mostly middle or upper-class people. I just don't care for it and have had bad experiences here. Also way too many of the people are drunks or in service to this one mafia-like family.

I don't know if where you live is therefore heaven. My guess would be most places are a mix of sucky and heavenly ranging from "almost totally sucky" to "almost totally heavenly." I believe a study showed that even in Gary, Indiana like 12% of people were happy to be there. (I'm disincluding towns that are literally toxic waste-dumps that are going to be abandoned)

The worst big city is probably Detroit or maybe New Orleans if that counts (city pop is 300 000, metro is 1.1 million). Chicago and L.A. are WAY better than those two in terms of the job market and crime.
