I recently spent a week in Crossville and I never felt unsafe and I never saw what I would call a suspicious person. I'm retired LE and I know a suspicious person when I see one.

Looking at traditional crime rate statistics is not the way to go for towns that have less than 50k. The reason for this is that it is easy for the data to be skewed due to a random event or sequence of events that is not really representative of the town itself. This happens because crime is based off a 1 per 100,000 ratio. Crossville, TN at 10,000 pop is a good example. I remember (because I get Nashville news) a violent multiple homicide that happened to take place in the woods nearby from Crossville, which may be the event that skewed the data. I'm not even sure if the people involved were even from Crossville.

I don't understand why Crossville Tn. is even on the list, and #1 at that. What is so bad and dangerous about Crossville?

IDK.
I often read the arrests and court docket in the Crossville Chronicle and there are a lot of thefts (wal mart in particular), DUI's, driving on suspended. Your typical stuff with the occasional major crime. Pretty typical of most places.

Exactly. Crossville has it's share of petty crimes but as a whole it is a safe community. The surveys that stated that Crossville is dangerous were put out by a alarm company trying to worry the retirees here to panic and buy their services.

That's why it's called clickbait.
