I'm surprised that Las Cruces is safer than Alamogordo.

There's been repeated dialogue in other threads about how the FBI crime statistics shouldn't be used to compare different localities. Not sure why we should think this list is any better.

I saw a related article here on Minnesota's safest cities. Their 20th ranked city (St. Francis) had lower property and violent crimes than New Mexico's leader, Corrales.

So in gradation comparison you're saying that New Mexico is way safer than Minnesota, eh?

Quite the opposite.

For some reason my brain was putzing out yesterday trying to understand what you were saying with this post. So we're oodles and scaboodles worse off here in New Mexico than it is in Minnesota with crime.

What is Minnesota's most dangerous city for crime? Gotta be Minneapolis/St. Paul, eh?

I don't know if this site is referencing FBI statistics, or local crime data, but according to this website, Virgina, Minnesota is the most violent:

The Most Dangerous Cities in Minnesota | Hot 96.7

There are some other websites that report a rather obscure town in Northwest Minnesota, Bemidji, to be the state leader in crime. It has a 4.82 violent crime rate per 1,000 citizens. If Bemidji Minnesota was placed into New Mexico, it would be the 15th safest city, supplanting Bloomfield, and slightly more violent than Carlsbad.
