Acapulco is a bit more dangerous atm but historically I would say Ciudad Juarez is more dangerous. Ciudad Juarez is just one of those cities historically that has a culture of violence. It was known as a violent ****hole long before the drug war started

If we compare it with the USA, it would be the safest big city in the USA!
And if we compare it with other cities in Europe.
Turin(IT), Rome(IT), Naples(IT), Bari(IT), Manchester(UK), Birmingham(UK), Rotterdam(Ne), Dublin(Ir), Moscow(Ru), Coventry(UK), Nottingham (UK), Brussels(Br)...are much more dangerous.

There are 20 settlement of accounts a year in Marseille on average. There are 20 each week in most major US cities!
But when you have one in Marseille, the world knows it...When you have one in a US city, it is just a normal day so no one speaks about it.

Stop watching all dumb American TV.
Parts of Marseille are definitely dangerous. Fortresses of drug dealing. It is well known. And the most known area outside Italy for Mafia activity along with Corsica.

Yeah the only time I used to hear about Ciudad Juarez before the drug war got completely out of hand was for the 100s of women disappearing and being murdered.

Parts of Marseille were dangerous this year when there were many Britons and many Russians!
Yes, you are right, it can be dangerous in this specific situation.

Yum.

In all seriousness, many of us have a "normal" accent. Just like how most Americans don't have a redneck/southern accent.

LOL. Actually, the wildlife isn't that interested in you and it usually takes extreme bad luck, absolute stupidity or a large amount of cluelessness to be attacked or killed by a wild animal.

People get taken by crocodiles usually because they knowingly wade into crocodile infested creeks and rivers.

Folk most often get attacked by kangaroos because they cluelessly antagonise or irritate an already stressed animal. Take this guy for example:

And snakes really don't want to bite you unless they feel threatened.

Halle (Saale): 1,22
Augsburg: 1,23
Mainz: 1,25 (average of 2012-2015)
Rostock: 1,33



Rates for total violent crimes (per 100,000 residents) for major Germany cities (average of 2013-2015):

Dresden: 210,7
Germany: 225.7

Leipzig: 327,8
Essen: 331,6
Wuppertal: 337,5
Mainz: 343,2

Bremen: 492,3
Hamburg: 499,7
Aachen: 500,3
Hannover: 516,2
Köln: 526,7

Maybe Dortmund can be called the "most dangerous" city in Germany. Dortmund has the highest rate for violent crimes. But the homicide rate is just average.

Koln, Aachen and Hannover seem like the most likely candidates, both high in the violent crime stats and relatively high in homicides for German/European standards.

Augsburg is a bit of a paradox.

Homicide rate is more important than violent crime rate. It's easy to underreport or fudge the assault numbers, not to mention that different places have different definitions of what constitutes violent crime, you can't do that with homicides

I disagree. Even in the most dangerous cities on earth, homicide is extremely rare. The odds of being a victim of it are minimal unless you or your family are involved in drug trafficking or gangs. OTH, crimes like assault, robbery, muggings and theft are far more likely to impact the average person. These are the most important statistics to consider.
