I wonder why Birmingham is so high? It is a much smaller region than Miami or Chicago...or even Detroit. Hmm....that is scary!

The general crime rate in Florida is insanely high because it is a major drug-trafficking port, and because of the disproportionate number of homeless people (who are easy to prey on) and serial killers (who apparently like the climate as much as the homeless do).

The list is misleading. For example, the list shows San Francisco, Oakland, and Fremont. Uh, ok. Fremont? Well, that is going to lower the actual statistics. Oakland is one of the most violent cities in the country. Far more violent then many on the lists above it. The murder rates for Oakland are astounding.
