USA Most Dangerous Cities.

I was just wondering if any where else if as bad as we have it here in Memphis. They were already over 40 murders at the end of March, and there have to be many more now. No one here thinks turning on the news and hearing that someone was murdered is something out of the blue.

We were ranked #4 on the most dangerous cities in the US last year after Washington D.C., Detroit, and Baltimore.

Is any where else this bad?

fuck.

I love that site, they have a list of the 100 most dangerous and safe cities (and many more lists) and basically info about every single city/town in the USA. It's very interesting!

I can't remember any murders in the town where I live. We had a bear come into the yard last weekend and tear up a bird feeder and an archery target, but I don't think she's particularly dangerous. Just hungry this time of year.

Im not sure how accurate that is. Memphis has 650,000+ and they were no where on the top 100 biggest cities list. .

fuck.

I believe Camden is the most dangerous city.

I get lost there all the time leaving the Tweeter Center. It doesn't frighten me nearly as much as Newark does.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Hah. Dont hate. Three 6 Mafia is from there. . So proud of that one.

Thats a good area where you live. Germantown has a REALLY shitty school for such an upscale kind of place. Rediculous you can have signs so far out of the ground though. Never seen that happen any where else.

fuck.

Germantown High? I went there during the tornado in 1994 for half the day when we split schools for the semester... I went to Houston... It was nice back then but I hear it's gone down recently... I don't know... it's been 10 years since i've been there heh
