I don't really have a definite answer for Ethiopia as I think in general the cities are no different to each other in regards to crime and danger.

I'd say the towns/cities where the recent riots took place over the Oromia region are more dangerous at this moment in time.

Detroit's homicide rate is on another level in comparison to Chicago's, even with the horrible year Chicago is having. Detroit had the title of the most dangerous city in America until recently, and it's still firmly in the same category as St. Louis, New Orleans, and Baltimore.

Now the suburbs of St Louis mostly have zero few homicides.


When you're talking large cities by crime rates the worst are usually St Louis, Detroit, New Orleans.
St. Louis hasn't had 200 murders a year since the 1990s. Even last year, when the wheels came off and the city saw its worst year since the 90s, it didn't hit 200.

It's sad that those cities are stuck in such violence and defeatism, decade after decade, after decade... it's good to see that the crime rates are declining somewhat in St. Louis, but is that due to the population draining out? I remember hearing hair-raising stories from a Baltimore resident in the early 1990s--there's no reason to think it's improved much since then. New Orleans, Detroit... what's the solution?

I mean St. Louis is still lower than the 90s, but things were better even just a few years ago. Some say it's the Ferguson Effect, some say it's because the Mexican cartels have been pumping a ridiculous amount of cheap heroin into the area lately, but I honestly don't know what the answer is. I can say that it doesn't have to do with a population decline, as the per capita rates would reflect that. North St. Louis remains spectacularly dangerous, and the Central Corridor and South St. Louis remain pretty safe in comparison.

As for Baltimore, last year was either the worst year on record in Baltimore or one of the worst. I can't remember if it ended topping itself last year, or if that was just a projection.

For Australia, I'd have to say Adelaide with Sydney a close second. Most cities here are relatively safe compared to the world though.

Helsinki, lolz. Mainly because there's the most OC, most of the country's homeless, tourists - both foreign and domestic and attractions.

Not sure what the most dangerous cities of China are... many say Guangzhou/Shenzhen/Chongqing.
I think the notion that Osaka is dangerous is mostly an inside joke amongst the Japanese.

And they say that Dongguan, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou are the most dangerous cities in China. Apparently they call Dongguan the Baghdad of China or something.

The murder and crime rate all of the US is dropping as it is over most of the western world. That includes The Big Easy, Mobtown and the Motor City. In most cities in the US, the vast majority of murders will occur within certain zones where gang violence is rampant. Stay out of those areas and you're far more likely to get hit by a car.
