Here you have some of the most safe areas of the country in Wisconsin. Like Wausau, Appleton, Eau Claire, La Crosse, Sheboygan, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac. Then you have Milwaukee...which is one of the most dangerous cities in the country right now. Why is that?

To see what I'm talking about look at these stats...

VIOLENT CRIME RATE (MSA)
Milwaukee MSA 587.1
Wausau MSA 93.3
Appleton MSA 124.2
Eau Claire MSA 124.6
La Crosse MSA 122.9
Sheyboygan MSA 141.8
Oshkosh MSA 159.3
Fond du Lac MSA 196.2
U.S. National ave 367.9

PROPERTY CRIME RATE (MSA)
Milwaukee MSA 3064.2
Wausau MSA 1544.7
Appleton MSA 1385.0
Eau Claire MSA 1687.3
La Crosse MSA 1844.5
Sheyboygan MSA 1793.8
Oshkosh MSA 1721.1
Fond du Lac MSA 1619.3
U.S. National ave 2730.7

MURDER RATE (MSA)
Milwaukee MSA 7.0
Wausau MSA 1.5
Appleton MSA 0.4
Eau Claire MSA 1.2
La Crosse MSA 1.5
Sheyboygan MSA 0.9
Oshkosh MSA 0.0
Fond du Lac MSA 1.0
U.S. National ave 4.5

You see what I mean? It's like a difference between night and day.

That was a 2-year-old post you just quoted.

That said, as far as I can tell, the guy who started this thread, wondering what safe city he could move to, still has yet to move anywhere.

Interesting. Two years ago and even after four pages of back and forth no one was able to go there and drop the race card. Two years later and BAM one post later and we are confronting the 'R' monster. We've come a long way, lol. Too bad the o.p. isn't around. This is what they were *****ing for all those many months ago.

Milwaukee has higher crime but it isn't in the top 10 among the most dangerous large cities.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/niallmc.../#10f6941050da

Did they include these larger (20k+) Milwaukee suburbs that have a lower crime index than all of the cities you listed:

City - Crime Index

Mequon, WI - 293
Muskego, WI - 361
Menomonee Falls, WI - 475
New Berlin, WI - 521
Franklin, WI - 714
Waukesha, WI - 857
Brookfield, WI - 921
Oak Creek, WI - 1132
===================
Appleton, WI - 1164
Eau Claire, WI - 1171
Oshkosh, WI - 1263
Fond Du Lac, WI - 1374
Wausau, WI - 1436
La Crosse, WI - 1559
Sheboygan, WI - 1563

This is great. Thanks for the stats! So it seems most suburbs are much safer than the smaller cities like Appleton and Wausau. So you get the best of both worlds. Amenities of a large city and the safety of a smaller city.
