Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in United States in 2010

When you are trying to sell your home, crime statistics are a major selling point. The feeling is, the safer the neighborhood the easier the sale. Well, agents in these cities are feeling the pressure as dangerous crime is most common in this top 10 list.

St. Louis is the leader this year knocking Camden out of the top spot. It was a close race, but St. Louis seemed to fought it’s way to the front.

Funny, the St. Louis mayor has been touting the city’s crime rate has been going down for 3 years, now they end up at the top of the list. These surveys do a great deal to keep politicians honest about actual crime in their community and probably keep the residents safer when the spotlight is on them.

One interesting note in the survey is that Chicago, Illinois is not in the survey as their information was not available. The city was in the news constantly this summer as the murder capital of the United States. Maybe that is why the information was not submitted.

So here we go, your most dangerous cities in the USA.

Y lil bgz

  2. Wow Tom, for once Memphis didn't make the top 10! Forbes has us at #1.

  3. I am curious to find out if US cities are more dangerous compared with the European capitals…

  4. I am surprised that Brooklyn, NY is not on the list.

  5. woah cant bellevee that detroit aint number 1. got my car shot at last night dropping off a buddy of mine

  6. cuidad juarez in mexico has about 4000 murders. Ive been over to the middle east too. the worst neighborhoods in the US is like seasame street in comparison.

  7. ORANGE*COUNTY PUTOZ

  8. I can’t believe “the Lou” is the most dangerous! thats where i live and nothing has ever happen to me! odd. i live in ladue which is a rather nice area and if they’re saying all of the city is dangerous, they’re wrong! probably just the east side.

    • I live in St. Louis County too, Ladue is in West County. The nice and rich part of st.louis. When they say St. Louis they're talking about St. Louis City and East St.Louis, and some of the city really isn't that bad..during the day. Walk down the hood or good fellow and you're white….good luck I hope you survive. I know someone who got lost in east st.louis and she got shot just for being white. St. Louis isn't that great of a town….

      • lol um no. east st.louis is a joke now. and the city? are you kidding me? It's North St.louis and the south side making all the real noise. East St.louis used to be rough, and that's ILL anyways

  9. NO neighborhood in Camden, East St Louis, Detroit, Gary, Compton, etc. looks like "Sesame St." You've obviously never been there if you would say that.. I've been all over the world. The Middle east doesn't have anywhere NEAR the murder rate or robbery rates of the cities on the list, most of the violence is politically motivated, not some crack head shooting you for your chain, or doing driveby's and forcing innocent people to sleep in their bath tubs. Some of the cities in Africa and South America are bad, but not in Europe or the Middle East (or Asia for that matter). Projects in Newark, the south Bronx, Brownsville, Chicago, New Orleans, etc. are literally war zones.

    • Don't know about the other cites, but Chicago has made great progress in reforming and reducing it's housing projects.

  10. #4. FLINT ,MI ITS BUCK WILED BUT THEIR IS SOME GOOD AREAS, JUST NOT IN FLINT,MI I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR 30 YEARS AND IT SEAMS EVERY YEAR GETS WORSE MAYBE ITS THE JOB SITSUATION I DONT KNOW, BUT I HAVE HAD LOTS OF GOOD TIMES IN THIS CITY IF WE COULD GET SOME JOBS INSTED OF SENDING ALL OF OUR JOBS OVER SEAS, BUT HAY IM JUST ONE GUY MUCH LOVE TO EVERYONE WHO IS FROM FLINT,MI ON HERE STAY SAFE MY HOMIES.

  11. This is very racist. Just because all of the top cities cited are disproportionately black doesn't mean they are dangerous like you say. I am sure there is no connection there. But I could be wrong.

    • They never said that it was because of the black population that they ranked it this way, they ranked it by the average of crimes per 1000 people. You would see that if you had read up.

  12. OK so ummm….my lil comment i hav to say!! Is do NOT EVER move to LAS VEGAS…if u are real @ all…fun to hav fun for a min…then over it come up on sum $$ and bounce…..And dont GET STUCK!!! or ur F****… LOL so my lil situatiion to say about this is VEGAS is SIN city FoR sure #1…will blow all yr sox OFF unless ur runnen w the Devil hav fun!! But ur time will come so goooooood luck heheheheheh barf xo Nikki

  13. I live in Birmingham , Al and I can say that satistics are true.. The facts are based on Domestic Violence, Rapes and Homicides and according to the Birmingham Police Department, they average about 1 1/2 homicides a night. For the ” small southern town” that it is..

  14. Where is New Orleans???

  15. Of course the dangerous cities will have more blacks. It is not racist it is a fact. White people may rob you but black people will rob you then kill you and it doesn't help that the US has a hostile former slave population and that population happens to be black and still segregated in neighborhoods—this is why there's so many murders in the US.

  16. Haven’t you learned by now if you don’t know what you are talking about, it is best not to say anything. With regards to Chicago, it is not the murder capitol of the United States. According to the data, several U.S. cities have a higher homicide rate per capita than Chicago. So, exactly what is your purpose in spreading misinformation and false information? You are certainly not doing a service to your readers by misinforming them. If you are going to put information into a public forum you have an obligation to your readers to make every effort to make certain that information is correct and factual.
