I mean there's Central Valley towns like Yuba City and Oroville statisticallyhave higher crime rate than East Palo Alto at this point.
Oroville yeah, but not Yuba City at all. Violent crime rates per 100,000 residents:

East Palo Alto:
2009 - 1,164.5
2008 - 1,098.1
2007 - 785.9

Yuba City:
2009 - 313.6
2008 - 369.0
2007 - 395.9

2009 - 1,930.2
2008 - 1,284.1
2007 - 1,458.1

East Palo Alto is certainly much better than it used to be, but there's still plenty of bad stuff going on, unfortunately. Also, while Oroville has a higher total violent crime rate, it's mostly because of assault and rape (both significantly higher than EPA). EPA on the other hand has a higher robbery rate and a MUCH higher murder rate than Oroville does (Oroville had zero murders in 2009, while EPA had 8 for a pretty high rate of 23.5 murders per 100,000 residents).

Shouldn't this be split in terms of the cities of this size that are parts of larger metros and ones that they are the largest city in a small metro or micropolitan area?
