You should never trust Wikipedia or those ranking list for that matter. Cause every list is different and every city is different in how they produce crime info.

I would use something like Forbes or whatever to look for those stats. Wikipedia is always skewed to some degree. Assuming those stats are true, I thought that was around where Lexington would rank. I generally feel pretty safe here.
