I'm sure you already know this, but CQ Press is reflecting the situation much better in Mobile this year. Apparently the city of Mobile's crime rate is dramatically lower than the metro area as a whole for 2009-2010.

The "City of Mobile" itself ranks as 136th most dangerous. Add in the metro area, and its one spot above Birmingham's metro area at 20th-- The "City of Birmingham" was ranked at 7.

That makes me feel better (not being sarcastic). I only knew of the Metro statistic. And wow, that makes Prichard and outliers like Tillman's corner look very bad. But at least that makes Mobile look alot better . 136 ain't bad.

Just looked at my two main cities.

Mobile City: 136th dangerous (awesome!)
Mobile Metro: 20th dangerous

St. Louis City: 2nd dangerous (doesn't feel that "dangerous" though)
St. Louis Metro: 103rd dangerous

Just found the opposite trend interesting.

Isn't Prichard going bankrupt? It wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't get annexed by Mobile eventually.

That's not surprising. St Louis Metro's suburbs are more affluent than Mobile's. The inner city of STL is quite dangerous, as I'm sure you know. When I was there, it wasn't immediately obvious why this was, but when I was riding down the interstate and saw houses and buildings literally falling apart.

St. Louis's problems are concentrated in the north part of the city. Sound familiar? I wouldn't say St. Louis's suburbs are necessarily more affluent than Mobile's. Think Fairhope as opposed to St. Charles County. Also, I would love to have a Quiktrip and those Midwestern gas prices here in Mobile.

You must have been riding down interstate 70 and saw the mecca that is North City ... the land of vacant buildings falling apart. Go down 64/40 or 44 next time or try South City.

To keep this thread on the more important part, Mobile , those city-limit #'s are very encouraging. I hope that # finds a way to stay up, and somehow, someway, Prichard can somehow at least improve in future years (even if just the slightest bit).

There is no hope for the City of Prichard. I don`t think you guys have any idea of how dangerous Prichard is. If you calculate the city population and muder rate in Prichard it is among the highest in the nation.

Prichard : Population around 30 k with 18 murders so out of evry 1,666th resident could be a victim.

Mobile : population 192 K with 38 murders so out of every 5,052 redient could be a victm

New Orleans (2004): Pop 464 k with 264 murders = Every 1,757th resident could be a victim

St. Louis : Pop 354 k with 138 murders(2007) = Every 2565th resident could be a victim

Prichrad is more dangerous than the other larger cities listed even though the population is higher but you have to factor in murders with the the population as well.
