Oh yay. Another one of these lists. Completely different shuffle from last week's list, which will be a completely different shuffle from next week's list. And since many, many violent crimes aren't even reported in a great many cities and towns, these lists are about as relevant as scented toilet paper.

Most of these cities have large African American populations. Is there a correlation?

Once I saw that it was Neighborhood Scout, I had to be somewhat skeptical. What is the criteria?

Of course there is. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge the fact that the consequences of racial oppression, aren't still lingering, is extremely naive or in denial.
