Actually, FBI Crime Reports place Minneapolis as having more crime than Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's inner city is still much worse off than minneapolis's. Milwaukee's inner city neighborhoods are just as bad as detroits. But in milwaukee they only cover 25% of the city whereas detroits cover about 75% of the city. Chicago, St Louis, cleveland, cincinatti, indy, minneapolis, etc. all dangerous areas that are very comparable to eachother, how ever the portion of the city that they cover is different.

You can't put St. Louis over East St. Louis in crime. In 2006, East St. Louis easily had the highest murder rate of all U.S. cities at 83.8, more than doubleing St. Louis' (37.2) and about 35 more than the next closest (48.3). It also had the highest overall crime rate for all U.S. cities (has held that unforntanate title for a few years). And St. Louis may have crime (just like every other city in the world), but East St. Louis easily beats out St. Louis in murder, rape, robbery, assualt, burgalry, auto theft.

I gotta agree with you on this. It's just a fact (statistics and me being from St. Louis prove it) that areas with more minorites will have more crime. But, you also have to look at the stats behind the stats. Most of those kids were brought up the wrong way and were exposed to gangs, drugs, bad public schools, and violence as a youth and the streets are the only thing they have to turn to.

Tough to say. I would probably say Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Chicago are undoubtedly in the top five. The Twin Cities, Kansas City, and Cincinnati I would say are all close behind.

Who is "they"? By the way, what about people that die from alcohol related auto fatalities and reckless driving fatalities?

How could you forget the aspect of poverty as well? I always wonder though how guns and drugs are able to get into such neighborhoods in the first place.

Let's also keep in mind that there are other reckless way that people die and if you check the demographics on those terms, I'm sure they will be different. So, keep it all into proper perspective.

Chicago and Milwaukee are not near the most dangerous cities in the midwest. Some of you forget that Chicago has nearly 2.8 million people.
