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?

http://city-data.com

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. :shrug:.

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.

Hah. Dont hate. Three 6 Mafia is from there. :rolls:. 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.

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

Newark actually dropped way down on the last list I saw. I remember once seeing it as the top city but now it's like 23.

Yea.

Its still a very good school, academics and sports wise. I mean look at the neighborhood its in, it really cant be that bad, yet atleast. Just wait until MCS takes it over. Cordova went down fast.

Sad to say that Oakland, California is all too often at the top of such a list. :sad: http://www.insidebayarea.com/oaklandtribune/ci_3699858

However, San Francisco is surprisingly leading Oakland by some 100%!! http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2006/01/17/EDGIAGNDKO1.DTL

Kansas City is pretty bad, but I doubt it's top 5 or so.

A lot of these crime stats are irrelevant, they only reflect what's being reported. The only thing that is certain is murder rate.

For murder rate, I could only find 2002 data but back then the top 15 were
1. Gary, IN
2. Compton, CA
3. New Orleans, LA
4. Washington, DC
5. Detroit, MI
6. Camden, NJ
7. Youngstown, OH
8. Richmond, VA
9. Baltimore, MD
10. Atlanta, GA
11. St. Louis, MO
12. Richmond, CA
13. Birmingham, AL
14. Jackson, MS
15. Oakland, CA

15. Oakland, CA...and I can tell you for a fact that San Francisco has shot up that list early this year. Not so sure about Oakland, California though. :shrug: However, Richmond, California is certainly in the top 10. :o

You know what ticks me off? When someone is murdered in San Francisco or San Jose, they almost never say "this is the _____ homicide in that city this year," but when someone is murdered in Oakland, they always give us an updated count. :fiery:

It is reported that a vast majority of the homicide occurs in minority areas. These stories will specify Black-on-black crime for the very reasons that I posted in this this thread http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=232816
Never will you hear about the HUGE Asian crime rate [scene]. And every once in a while will you here about the Latino crime rate.
However, you will rarely if ever hear of the crime committed by Caucasians in a city like San Francisco. And believe me, there's PLENTY! :fiery:

And it's been that way for as long as I can remember. even when the homicide rate fell far below previous years successively. Again, fear sells, and fear of the black male sells best. :shrug:
However, it's only a matter of time before some enterprising young entrepreneurial brutha figures out how to turn this to his advantage. :lol:

Most cities have good areas and bad areas. I spent last summer in Washington, DC and never felt threatened and it's 4th on the list.
