I have no idea what the Thread starter is basing this off of.

Off the top I can name a lot of cities that should be in different places: Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Milwaukee, Nashville.

All of those should be at least a couple more spots on the safer side.
Speaking for Boston.
Boston has a very small footprint that includes all of the worst neighborhoods in the whole metro area (about 10 square miles). The city itself is only about 48 square miles.

There are many cities and towns that surround Boston which are the safest in the nation. If you go to the City Data list of America's safest communities over 5,000 people, the suburbs directly surrounding Boston constitute a shocking 30% of the nations safest cities and towns.

I'll vouch for that! I live in one of the communities on that list and we don't even lock our doors.

In Boston, the violent crime can sometimes be on the high side, but the murder rate is low. Basically, if you come to Boston, you might get a beating but you won't shot.

As someone who lives in Detroit, whoever told you that was misinformed themselves.

Dang, I know North Minneapolis is sketchy, but I didn't think the crime would have been THAT bad in the city overall. Also, no surprise that Detroit is the most dangerous. No wonder it lost 25% of its population between 2000 and 2010. The city is a miniature Baghdad (half-sarcasm).
