Based on What?
Seems like a teaser ad to get people to pay for complete report.

Doesn't it seem odd that cities like LA, Chicago, and New York are not on this list?

It seems rather odd that Fort Worth is in the safest 10, while Dallas, which is also part of the metroplex, is in the most dangerous 10. Houston is no surprise, as dangerous, nor is Austin a surprise as safest.

Hmmm... I do notice some common factors among the safest, and common factors among the unsafest.

New York is listed under safest. I suspect that with huge cities, the massive suburbs, with lower crime, tend to cancel out the more crime-ridden inner cities. Of course, I've also known of several cities that quit reporting certain types of crime to lower their crime rate.

Sadly, the ten most dangerous have the most minorities in them....better wise up and listen to Bill Cosby.

Well, thanks to voting Dinkins out of office, there are probably at least 15,000 people that are now alive who wouldn't be, just in NYC alone.

I'm in Dallas, in a largely Hispanic neighborhood near downtown. What these stats don't tell you is that the violent crime is largely isolated to certain areas and ethnic groups. I've lived here for six years in a restored historic neighborhood, and the only crime I've ever experienced is theft of plant pots off the porch. But every weekend, I can sit outside and hear the gunshots and squealing tires from the Hispanic nightclub two blocks away. I've often wondered why people jam a club every weekend when it's almost guaranteed that someone will get knifed or shot there. Personally, I'd probably decide to go to a movie or something instead.

Baltimore here... actually county... but I NEVER go to the city, except when my daughter preforms in the Moscow Ballet Nutcracker (her 6th year)

El Paso being the second safest big city in America is interesting. It is about 85% Hispanic. I wish I could remember the name of the poster from El Paso, but I cannot.

There is a Zoo inside the Baltimore Zoo, I drive around it everyday. The fence is called the Baltimore Beltway and all the animals live inside its borders. I don't feed them but they constantly ask for handouts.

A friend of mine worked for Dallas Fire, which used to be known as one of the best fire departments in the state. He said that politically correct hiring and mis-management had totally destroyed the effectiveness of the department. He told me about Assistant Chiefs who had to come up with a new program as part of their annual review to get a salary increase, and that there were something like twenty or thirty new programs started annually. None of them actually got off the ground, but they were "implemented" and supposedly being carried out, although they served no useful purpose.

I live south of Waco, and mismanagement in Dallas is legendary, as is the incompetence of mayor Laura Miller and the council. When the Dallas Cowboys started negotiations to move back to Dallas into Fair Park, I said "it's never gonna happen. Dallas will never get it's act together enough to put a decent proposal on the table. The Cowboys will end up in Arlington." Sure enough, Laura Miller (applauded by the communists at Texas Monthly) laid down the law to Jerry Jones, and they basically told him he'd be paying for renovation of the entire crime ridden Fair Park area, in exchange for which, they'd also let him renovate the Cotton Bowl.

Jones is moving to Arlington, which now houses the Texas Rangers and the original Six Flags.

Bolton is simply another example of what happens when liberals get control of cities.

New York is MUCH safer than it was in the Dinkins era and before. I'm not surprised at all to find it on the list of safest cities. Thank you, Rudy Giuliani.
