Probably Gary, and then St. Louis. Then, Detroit and East St. Louis.

I don't know about that. The south as a whole seems to be more dangerous than the midwest.

^ saying Chicago is the most dangerous city in the midwest is like saying all the states east of the Rocky Mountains are the most dangerous in the USA. The city is far too large and split up to clump together. Houston and New Orleans aren't even near the Midwest.

The murder rate is also pretty run of the mill for larger cities in the US, areas like Detroit and St. Louis have rates well over twice as high as Chicago. Not even touching East St. Louis or Gary...Flint...oy

Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland, Flint, Saginaw, Gary, East St Louis, northside Milwaukee, southside Chicago all come to mind.
Notice a pattern here? It's all cities that have, shall we say, certain demographics.
