    She's probably right, sort of like St Louis. The tourists are usually safe or pretty safe, but beware if you happen to get into the wrong neighborhoods.
    East St Louis, IL should make the list before St. Louis.

    Nice catch. They had, what, 9,000 shootings there last year(yes I'm being facetious)? Couldn't be that Obama's #1 dog washer is mayor, could it?

    Camden is where it belongs. Sadly, they tore down the prison there 5 years ago.

    Did you know they no longer have a police department? They did away with a city department and now there is the Camden County PD. Can you imagine lineup? "Jenkins, you get Haddonfield." "WHOOHOO!" "Arthur, you get Camden." "DAMMIT!"

    It was a relatively new prison to boot, my Father put the phones in that place. I think they want to use the land for condos or some such

    For comparison, the 10 safest cities in America. (Source: Business Insider 25 July 2013)

    1. Irvine, CA: Steven Choi (R) (South Korean immigrant)
    2. Fremont, CA: Bill Harrison (D)
    3. Plano, TX: Harry LaRosiliere (R) (Black Republican alert!) (Haitian immigrant)
    4. Madison, WI: Paul Soglin (D)
    5. Irving, TX: Beth Van Duyne (R)
    6. Scottsdale, AZ: Jim Lane (R) (My favorite city)
    7. Boise, ID: David Bieter (D)
    8. Henderson, NV: Andy Hafen (D)
    9. Chandler, AZ: Jay Tibshraeny (R)
    10. Chula Vista, CA: Cheryl Cox (R)


    Not surprised that there is more of a mixture. Safe is safe; pretty hard to screw things up once they are set in place. Now if Boise would just get a little higher on the list. I need all the ammunition I can get to talk the wife into moving to Boise instead of Pocatello.

    I have worked in Children's Services in Detroit, both as a foster care worker and as a delinquency worker, since 1987. I lived within the Detroit city limits from 1989-2001. At no point in that time have I been the victim of a crime. Anyone at any point in metro Detroit is at risk. I'm probably more at risk in the parking lot at Oakland or Lakeside Mall than I am going to a game, concert or the museums.
