Posted on 09/09/2013 5:39:39 PM PDT by ilovesarah2012
Even the most dangerous cities in America can have relatively safe neighborhoods, as there is more variation in crime within most cities than between cities. But using exclusive data developed by NeighborhoodScout, and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, we here report those specific neighborhoods in America that have the highest predicted rates of violent crime per 1,000 neighborhood residents of all. Violent crimes include murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. These neighborhoods are the epicenters of violence in America, where social issues are likely to ignite into violence and spread.

Kinda hard to believe that Watts or Compton in the L.A. area didn’t even get an honorable mention, let alone a ribbon.....
From what I know of theses places, this study is wasiss.
I surprised. Not a single MLK/Malcolm X mention.
Detroit wins hands down by placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd!
Hand that collectivist mayor a trophy!
check out 1 2 and 3 in the original article.
Chicago and Detroit. Who would of thought?
Welllll, it isn't really fair to compare amateurs against the professionals.
Would all 25 qualify as havens of diversity?
No MLK, Jr. streets mentioned. Why is that?
What's this world coming to?
Gee, I wonder how these craphole neighborhoods voted.
In the 8th Ave S / Wedgewood Ave neighborhood in Nashville, TN, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (4.3%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (3.6%) , and residents who report Mexican roots (1.8%) , and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (1.5%) , along with some Irish ancestry residents (1.3%), among others.
12.5% mentioned. Wonder who the other 87.5% are?
Detroit also took 7th, Saginaw, 10th, and Flint, 19th.
Illinois made it to the 4th, 13th, 14th, 16th, and 25th spots this year.
Gee, the Mayor of Windsor, ON, right across the river is a collectivist, and the whole place is run by unions, to boot. Even so, the only way to be a victim in Windsor is if you accidentally trip and fall at the annual rose festival.
Are you sure it's the politics?
Tulsa is 24th, the list is in reverse order. Sad to see my Grandpas old hood listed as the most dangerous place NOT in Detroit.
It’s those awful Nashville Germans again, I guess.
It’s global warming’s fault!
I guarantee all the “hoods” listed in Memphis and Houston are primarily black. I see Sheila Jackson Lee made the cut.
They would have during the years I lived there.
***Tulsa comes in at #2??????!! The home of Oral Roberts University? ****
Apache street is way north Tulsa, north of Archer and Greenwood a very dangerous area. ORU is way south Tulsa. There is now a Section 8 housing project just south of I-44 on Peoria. The crime rate in that formerly safe area has skyrocketed.
The days of the Socies (rich kid gangs) and greasers (not rich kid gangs) is gone.
Greaser is a term for those with the oily hair, not latinos.
I miss Penningtons Drive In!
Watts and Compton have pretty much been over run by illegals ... like the rest of LA. Not that their gangs aren’t bad as well.
Penningtons is gone?!?!
Oh man. what a place to make out with chicks or meet em.
I use to live in the Southern Hills area and thought is was nice. use to skate at 71st and Lewis.
Too bad the area went down.
There’s so much competition.
NeighborhoodScouts ® Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America For Obummer and Cuomo, Pelosi, Reid, et alii
No. 1. The Adirondack Mountains
No. 2. [feel free to insert your choice of neighborhood]
This is a joke. No mention of Anacostia, S.E or N.E Washington D.C. If the authors think those areas are safe, try taking a walk thru them.
There ought to be an app for that :)
I’m surprised there isn’t.
There is, hence the smiley face, but it was in the news recently as being ... wait for it ... racist!
You forgot to mention that Windsor, Ontario is also 90% white people
And they elect normal politicians
Eveyone knows ghettos are dangerous. Even Jesse Jackson.
I’m offended! Not 1 single Baltimore ‘hood?
Not even DC is on the list!
120% of them voted Demonrat.
Not a single one in the northeast. Strange.
Is there any question about whether these cities vote red, or if they vote blue at election time?
They have America convinced that we can just keep throwing money at the problem.
I’ve been told the Hispanics have taken those areas over.
