East St. Louis makes Chicago and Detroit look like peaceful amish country.
I question the Detroit murder rate anyway.
Detroit leads the nation in justifiable homicide which is usually ruled to be defensive but are often listed with murder numbers.
The old folks in Detroit are taking a considerable toll on the thugs.
Chicago, Illinois, population: 2,707,120
Detroit, Michigan, population: 706,585
Tiny East St. Louis, Illinois, population: 27,027
Huge difference in scale
