Thanks, ehen. Interesting that NYC, the city (almost) everyone loves to hate, is really not so bad. Surprised that Indianapolis is so high. The things you learn on city-data.

I'm suprised to see that L.A. isn't higher. Also a bit suprised to see both Dallas and Houston up there.

I'm not suprised Scottsdale is so low; you rarely hear about any serious crime in this city.

I'm a bit suprised to see Denver in the 700's; I always thought that was a pretty safe city.
