Still going on, just a question of when. And seeing louisville in the 130s of the most dangerous metros makes me more ready.

I would have thought NashvilleTN, Denver CO, Billings MT would have placed much higher on the list than they did.

Interesting. What's the deal with Harrisonville, VA? It's in the South, but it one of the least dangerous...

So atlantagreg, are you saying that Atalanta criminals are more mobile than criminals in other US metros? Why would that be?

You are correct. If they can not keep a tourist haven like Orlando FL safe then there is no hope for the rest of the southern cities.

No, the city reports it sexual assaults differently from how the Fed's report the nationwide stats, so the Feds throw out ALL of Chicago's crime stats. Since the city is missing, the metro area is knocked off as well.

While the city has a higher than norm crime rate, the metro area is actually very low.

I just checked and even though the numbers were a few years old (the early 2000's), here are the stats for 3 of Chicago's metro counties:

DuPage:

940,000 people, 0 homicides

Lake:

715,000 people, 8 homicides

McHenry:

360,000 people, 1 homicide.

That's quite low for the USA, only 10 murders for a population of 2,015,000 people. Or a rate of 0.5/100,000.

The DuPage count is extremely low, as they normally see around 8-10 murders on an average year I believe.
