I mean there's Central Valley towns like Yuba City and Oroville statisticallyhave higher crime rate than East Palo Alto at this point.

My cousin used to live in Menlo Park nearby from East Palo Alto and I remember in the 90s it was pretty rough over there--but it seems that since that time some of the development of surrounding towns has spilled over.

I'm from that part of the bay (Redwood City)... all that really got better was the area east of the IKEA shopping center and the area right across it from 101... where the Four Seasons is now used to be called "whiskey gulch" because of all the drunks, open air drug dealing, etc. Other than that, its pretty much business as usual... EPA at this point is far more united though. It used to be that each neighborhood was warring with each other, and in a city of 25,000 that means that you'll inevitably be dodging some bullets just by living there. East Menlo was no different. Now, its calmed down in terms of murder but I know plenty of people who live there who say that its still the SOS for the most part. I personally haven't seen anything happen there despite that I used to go there a couple times a month visiting friends and eating at Backayard on Willow in East Menlo but its definitely still a high crime area.

United States cities by crime rate (40,000

United States cities by crime rate (60,000-100,000) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are missing cities with missing data, obviously.

You can also search FBI.gov for past year information.

In 2009 Wilmington had 17 murders, in 2010 which isn't on most charts yet Wilmington had 29 [cough] [cough], I mean 27 "counted murders". Possibly 30 but who's counting.

Who said I was trying to impress anyone? Irvington remains the most dangerous city under 75K

Oh, and get over yourself, I'm not going to compare videos with you.
Longview, TX 11 murders per 100K
Irvington, NJ 30 murder per 100K

Longview can't compete.

Yo they gotta watch that hair pulling, I surprised I didn't see any weaves laying on the ground. Those last two were scrapping, they were throwing some mean overhand rights.

I never said Longview had more gangsters than Irvington, just that your videos are a poor representation of a city being bad.

I do wonder about something though. Longview isn't a suburb and it's not nearly all ghetto. There are plenty of areas with very little crime. I wonder how it would stack up if you took just the ghetto part, maybe 75601. It would certainly close the gap considerably.
