How they rank
Most dangerous cities
with over 75,000 people
1. St. Louis
2. Detroit
3. Flint
4. Compton, Calif.
5. Camden, N.J.
Detroit has finished second to St. Louis again.
But this is a title no city wants: According to an analysis of 2005 crime statistics released today, St. Louis is America's most-dangerous city with a population of more than 75,000, and Detroit ranks second, as it was the year before. Flint is third on the new list.
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's office wasn't surprised by the rankings.
"The statistics aren't secrets to the city of Detroit or Mayor Kilpatrick. He understands the challenges we face as the 11th-largest city in the U.S.," said Matt Allen, Kilpatrick's press secretary.

5. The Red Wings still beat the Blues Saturday Night!
Detroit is really not that dangerous of a place for non-Detroiters. It's fatal for Detroiters-especially males between the ages of 15-25.

6. So the Cardinals are criminals, huh???
How the Cardinals get linked to the crime statistics in St. Louis is amazing. The birds had a lot of help from the Tigers to win the Series.

This post really sounds like sour grapes.
