    We're only #4? Please, Detroit is badder than Camden, St. Louis and Oakland put together.


    Flint is #5. There are parts of Flint that are scarier than anywhere in Detroit, believe it or not. Flint is a small town, too.

    Just give Lane Kiffin a few more recruiting classes and Knoxille, TN will be #1.;)

    I thought when the Wings signed Todd Bertuzzi, he'd at least raise the number of felony assaults committed in Detroit!

    Ha, our Rams are tied for worst record (Detroit's is better), but looks like we consistently keep our high ranking on most dangerous city. :p

    Actually the City of STL is small geographically. Most of the people live in the metro area, which generally isn't dangerous. Since it initially was set up as a separate entity, the city was never able to expand. So much of the city is lower economically, translated high concentration of ghettos. That's why they maintain such a dubious "high" ranking in the crime stats. If you take the metro area as an entity, we're just average or lower.

    That's the same thing as in Detroit, although Detroit is still geographically a large area and it once held 2 million residents. When they do the next census, the population will probably come to around 850,000. The river and the immediacy of the suburbs prevents it from growing, however, there is now lots of vacant land available within the city limits for the brave and ambitious, who don't mind paying more in property taxes than they do for the house note!

    My mom still lives in New Orleans. She's been mugged and had her apartment broken into while she was home. I have pleaded with her, PLEASE MOVE. If you won't move, let me buy you a gun to protect yourself. Won't do either. Maybe love is blind.

    The cities are similar. We're also have the river---the mighty Mississsipi---that prevents growth of the city proper. The burbs surround the city. We're probably about 2 million in the metro area, but I think only about 400k live in the city.

    They're knocking down many of the condemned houses and trying to develope north st louis, which is very scary. I won't drive through certain areas. My mom, when she was alive, used to beg me to drive her by her old neighborhood. I had to gently tell her that she'd need a tank, escorted by the military, to go there. I don't know if she believed me, but sadly it was true.

    I lived in Flint for 13 years, it was pretty bad in the 70's. Back then the Police NEVER came into our neighborhood unless they had at least three cars. The Flying wheels motorcycle gang tried to take over Stever street in 78, it was like a war zone. We got the hell out.
