S-Africa (if that counts): Johannesburg,...
United States: Detroit, Newark, New Orleans, Baltimore,...
Europe: Russian cities, suburbs of Paris, Naples, Birmingham,...

But then again, almost every major city has a couple of no-go-areas. Hell, even Brussels has its ghetto's.

Then again I proved that the suburbs of Paris where not more dangerous than the center on the oposite the suburbs are less dangerous.
I would agree if you said Seine Saint Denis or the northeastern inner suburbs of Paris but saying the suburbs of paris is completly wrong.

Val-d'Oise: 9.7 violent crimes per 1,000 inh.
Val-de-Marne: 7.8 violent crimes per 1,000 inh.

Hauts-de-Seine: 6.7 violent crimes per 1,000 inh.
Yvelines: 5.9 violent crimes per 1,000 inh.

Unlike what most people think, suburbs are in the average less dangerous than the city of Paris.

How kind of you to point out my grevious error.

However, as Flanders also said "Europe: Russian cities" It's obvious he was being loose in his writings, therefore leaving his opinion open to criticism.

To remain on topic, my opinion would be that there are many parts of cities in the world that could be described as 'violent'. I've travelled extensively (as a soldier) and seen the good and the bad. And the good far outweighs the bad in my experience.

If I were to choose the most violent city that I have ever had the misfortune to experience it would have to be Mogadishu in Somalia. But then I don't suppose Somalia could be described as a 'Developed Country'.

I don't think anyone would consider Neuilly or Versailles to be "dangerous"....

New Orleans, DC, Detroit, etc.

Relatively speaking, major US cities can be considered quite dangerous; especially compared to most of the world's other developed countries.

You also have death squads in Brazil that kill children in the streets who scavenge for food.
