Violence in American Cities

FBI List of 10 Top Violent Cities of 2016

While surfing on the web today, I came across an article showing the 10 most dangerous cities in the United States of America. I was surprised at some of the cities included on the list so I decided I will share the information with others…and see if they are surprised too. The list rated the cities as to the average number of violent crimes per 10,000 people. So if the city had less than 10,000 people, that city was not included in the list of violent crime averages. Here are the names of the top ten cities and the average number of violent crimes recorded per a population of 10,000 during 2016, as listed by the FBI.

  1. St. Louis, MO                     88.1
  2. Memphis, TN                     84.2
  3. Detroit, MI                         83.4
  4. Birmingham, AL                82.8
  5. Rockford, IL                       76.3
  6. Baltimore, MD                  67.7
  7. Stockton, CA                      67.4
  8. Milwaukee, WI                  65.3
  9. Cleveland, OH                   61.5
  10. Hartford, CT                      55.8
