In your opinion what is the most dangerous city in the United States?

In my opinion, I think that LA is the most dangerous, followed by Vegas and Detroit...

What do you think?

Philadelphia has a terrible murder rate. What was it last year? Over 400. Detroit is very bad too.

Unfortunately, New Orleans was number one for 2006 and 2007. It saddens me because I really do love that city. With all of the trauma there in the past few years, I hope they can recover.

They certainly are doing a great job too. I really do hope New Orleans can get back up on its feet soon. What happened to New Orleans shouldn't have happened to this country.

If a person is going to spend all their time obsessing over crime and safety, then perhaps that individual is better suited for a cabin the woods hundreds of miles from the nearest major city.

Check out Morgan Quitno's most dangerous metros.

And this topic has been hashed to death. We're basically beating a dead horse at the same time.

New York, because they try to tell us what to do and how to think.
