New Haven at number 2, Hartford at number 4 and Bridgeport at number 6.

This is the list for cities with population below 200,000 people.

Most dangerous cities in the United States in 2013 - FBI small cities' data - National Conservative | Examiner.com

a little disconcerting that 3 of our 4 major cities make the list.

I'm not happy with the crime in our cities either, but think about it - under 200k. That's extremely limiting.

I'm going to ask the mods to shut this thread down. How often do we have to see these "most dangerous cities" lists?

Connecticut is a weird state- it's like a tail of two cities. There's extremely wealthy people in CT and then sprawling poverty. There are beautiful places and then there are crime-ridden ghetto areas. There are excellent school systems and then absolutely terrible ones. Of course you get this in all states but I feel like the contrast in CT is the most glaring of any state and I'm not quite sure why that is. There is also a lot of segregation in CT when it comes to where different races live in parts of the cities.

I notice in CT Upperclass cizitens don't want assioscate with lower class cizitens it like a segeration. New Jersey hand down have way more dumpy cities than CT.

If this thread gets the lock hammer because of your silly request it would show a complete lack of legitimacy to this forum at large. This is isn't the "Post the most skewed positive happy unicorn lists city-data forum". It would be disingenuous to deny people the darker side of our state who are trying to do their homework.

I look at the good, the bad and the ugly of the states I want to move to and I would be pretty irritated to find out some guy on the internet is axing threads for his own agenda.
Take 2 deep breaths. Now relax. Now do a thread search.

You joined in January so haven't seen it yet. This exact thread pops up at least once a month. I feel a deep repugnance for much of CT's cities and their politics, but it gets old after awhile - especially seeing this one limited to cities under 200k (and the others are complete opposite, including cities in the mix that are hundreds of square miles and including what would be considered our suburbs). There are instructions from the senior moderators that encourage you to add to old threads instead of making new ones on the same, or a similar, topic.

I get that our cities are crap, and that our suburbs are wealthy. I get that we statistically have the largest wealth and educational achievement gap in the nation. But this specific thread that continues to pop up rarely has any sort of intelligent discussion surrounding it, as usually the OP (and I don't specifically mean you) wants to point out why CT sucks, instead of contemplating ways we could improve the issue.

If you're all for a good discussion instead of crapping on the state, I support it. Otherwise, I don't - which otherwise doesn't matter, since it's ultimately up to the moderators on how they want to handle these threads.
