Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America
neighborhoodscout.com ^

Posted on 04/27/2014 5:16:35 AM 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. See our FAQ on how we rank the most dangerous neighborhoods

Click on any neighborhood name below to view the neighborhood map and full profile.

Rank Neighborhood Violent Crime Rate (per 1,000) My Chances of Becoming a Victim Here (in one year) 25 Baton Rouge, LA (N Lobdell Ave / Harry Dr) 68.96 1 in 15 24 Chicago, IL (S Pulaski Rd / W Lexington St) 71.55 1 in 14 23 St. Louis, MO (Clara Ave / Saint Louis Ave) 72.09 1 in 14 22 Washington, DC (Atlantic St SE / 4th St SE) 72.65 1 in 14 21 Saginaw, MI (Lapeer Ave / E Genesee Ave) 73.17 1 in 14 20 Chicago, IL (S Indiana Ave / E 60th St) 75.18 1 in 13

Capitol Hill should be considered the most dangerous. And whatever neighborhood the White Hut is in.

By my count, 6 out of 25, or more than 20 percent, are in Illinois. That's sort of a common thread.

You can pretty well guess which political party the mayors of most if not all of these cities are from.

Oh, and it's all Bush's fault because he and the Republicans wouldn't fund social programs that would have stopped this.

Six of the top 25 are in Illinois. The only common connection I can see is a concentration of a certain ethnicity whom it isn’t polite to mention.

Are we racist for pointing out the obvious? Why are these the most dangerous neighborhoods?

I am not trying to be racist, but if you removed all the crimes committed by blacks, what would the overall crime rate look like? Oh, and illegals as well.

Just seems, in general of course, white Americans aren’t the problem.

The way they calculate these is a bit odd. The last time I looked at the list, there was a neighborhood in Jacksonville, FL listed, so I looked at it.

It wasn’t an entire zip code, just a section of the city that had a distinct geography. Further, it was mainly an abandoned commercial area in the middle of a rough part of the city. The only residents (<800) were in a single apartment complex at the corner, which was functionally part of a different neighborhood.

In short, a lot of drug deals were being made and going bad (and bodies dumped), but likely no more than in the surrounding areas, but the low number of residents made it jump way up by crimes per 1000.

There is confusion between being racist and describing a sub culture.

Being a culturist and discussing subcultures is not being racist. It seems pretty obvious that in the cited neighborhoods there is a criminal subculture that is a portion of a larger community that taken together is a minority of the American population.

The black urban subculture is inherently criminal all across the country.

The list given reflects on violence and physical danger. I’d add that places like Seattle, San Francisco, Miami metro, and other solidly liberal voting block districts are just as dangerous to our future.

my computer does not want to access the link, so I can only see what's on this thread.

The way they calculate is a bit odd

From what you describe, it is. A meaninful list would look for clusters of various crimes, and list the most saturated clusters as the most dangerous areas, whatever the population, zip code, or within one locality. Whatever the population is in those areas saturated with crime is doesn't really impact their danger. The population does not affect your safefy individually when you're in that area.

Omaha, NE N. Ames Ave and 24th St. 76.5 1 IN 13 of becoming a victim.

There is a huge concentration of dilapidated welfare housing complexes there on both sides of this 4 lane street that runs for 5-6 blocks. Ames Ave is a major thoroughfare in Omaha. It has been very dangerous driving through there during the day since I can remember.

“Is there a common link to these neighborhoods?”

A question that has no need to be asked.

However, I look at it differently - what they have in common is that the people who live there, and their forefathers (uh...so to speak), have been extensively “helped” by Liberal thinking for the last 50 years.

Yea, the statistics are a bit odd.

If I have a 50x50 mile area that has one murder, but a population only 200 people, it will indicate a very high murder rate per 1,000. But you have to ask, is there anything special about that area that made that one murder more likely? If not, its just an anomaly.

Also, if I have 5 apartment complexes, full of equally dangerous people, that share a common park, and most crime is in that park. Grouping one complex with the park will show it to be more dangerous, but it isn't. In fact, it may not even be the park that is dangerous. In the case of the area in Jacksonville, the murders involved people coming into the area to deal in crime and fight each other. You weren't likely to be threatened by that, if you weren't involved with it.

I would like to see someone post the ethnic, racial, political demographics for each of these places.

We have a consistent profile of the social underclass culture. Idle hands are the Devil’s Tool.

I am guessing I know what the profile looks like, but if someone has the data on each of these neighborhoods pleas post it.

I would say each neighborhood needs to be leveled and the residence dispersed over a broad area to break up the criminal element.

Like Cancer its sometimes necessary to remove the bad growth

Yes, of course there is: they are homes to functionally-illiterate, drug-addled, third-generation government dependents from fatherless and faithless families.

50 years of Progressive social policy created these nightmares, by replacing the values and virtues of Western civilization with the rules of the jungle and the smothering embrace of the State.

But say that out loud, and a cacophony of manufactured outrage will envelop you with false charges of racism and bigotry, promoted especially by rich liberals in their cloistered communities, walled off from the reality that advances on them daily.

Good to see New Orleans has recovered from Katrina

Jackson, TN was the only one that surprised me.

Oklahoma City - on Martin Luther King avenue - shocking. (A bit surprised that Dallas didn’t make it with a neighborhood that contains MLK, Caesar Chavez, and Malcolm X all in one place. )

This article is from 1996, a long time ago, but very interesting. It’s long and I haven’t finished it yet, but I think it’s worth the read.

My Black Crime Problem, and Ours
John J. DiIulio, Jr.

Violent crime is down in New York and many other cities, but there are two big reasons to keep the champagne corked. One is that murder, rape, robbery, and assault remain at historic highs: the streets of Manhattan, like those of Houston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles, remain much less safe today than in the 1950s and 1960s. Worse, though policing and prison policies matter, nothing affects crime rates more than the number of young males in the population—and by the year 2010, there will be about 4.5 million more males age 17 or under than there were in 1990: 8 percent more whites and 26 percent more blacks. Since around 6 percent of young males turn out to be career criminals, according to the historical data, this increase will put an estimated 270,000 more young predators on the streets than in 1990, coming at us in waves over the next two decades. Numerous studies show that each succeeding generation of young male criminals commits about three times as much serious crime as the one before it: the occasional fatal knife fight of 1950s street gangs has given way to the frequent drive-by shootings of 1990s gangs.

The second reason to keep the champagne corked is that not only is the number of young black criminals likely to surge, but also the black crime rate, both black-on-black and black-on-white, is increasing, so that as many as half of these juvenile super-predators could be young black males. But just when we need to think most earnestly about black crime, the space for honest discourse about race and crime is shrinking. The evidence of that shrinkage is everywhere: in the lickety-split O.J. verdict and its racially polarized aftermath, in the utter certitude of many blacks that the justice system is rigged against them, in the belief of many whites that violent crime is synonymous with black crime and the fear they feel of every young black male passerby not wearing a tie or handcuffs.

What has made our views on race and crime so polarized—and often so out of touch with reality? What are the facts about race and crime? And what are Americans, blacks and whites together, to do about it?

http://www.city-journal.org/html/6_2_my_black.html

The above is an excerpt. On the one hand, it seems a complicated issue. On the other, it seems so simple.

Stay in school and while there, actually learn. Join some clubs, volunteer, hang out with the smart kids and emulate them. Go to college or trade school. Get a job and prove yourself and work your way up. Get married to someone with a good education and good job prospects. Buy a home and have a child or two and teach your children well.

Or would that be too “acting white”?

I am concerned about the area where I live in Central Indiana - Hancock County. I have started a list of “common causes” that I want to share in my Community.

My thoughts include (Comments are appreciated):

HOW TO SCREW UP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND CITY -
*Allow gangs to exist
*Don’t jail drug dealers
*Allow subsidized housing for non-law abiding people
*Give in to PC and Liberal - “Why can’t we all get along”
*Don’t fight and throw out “Common Core” and UN Agenda 21
*Accept Socialism
*Give up your Guns
*Allow inner city Buses to bring Inner city “utes” to your shopping areas
*Continue to Vote for Democrats

Speaking of shopping areas, malls now have Code of Conduct signs. We didn’t have those when I was growing up. We knew how to behave. Malls have now become hangouts for gangs and criminals. I avoid the malls.
