    The only surprise is that Memphis isn't at the top of both lists.

    Lived in both Little Rock and Memphis. They have really gone down the toilet.

    I wonder if anyone will conduct a correlation study on these cities using their demographic composition. :dunno:

    I won't hold my breath.

    Something is wrong with this list...
    Stockton and Oakland are in California. We have the most gun laws to protect our citizens.

    Careful, that goes both ways..

    "Michigan/TN have lax gun laws and have all this crime"...

    My feeling, I could care less about these numbers as it relates to gun control. As long as it's not law abiding citizens committing the crimes w/ legally owned firearms, then the numbers SHOULD be irrelevant to us (however, you know Brady will not look at it that way)

    I've only been to 2 of those places in my lifetime. Maybe if I get terminally ill I'll add the rest to my daredevil bucket list.

    Stockton just needs to try harder.

    Birmingham is well represented on most crime stats. That's where I lay my head. Fortunately as long as I stay out of the areas like Ensley and Titusville it is A OK. Crime is highly concentrated there.

    I lived in Little Rock. It does have some rough areas.

    If you actually look at the "bad areas" (because even Detroit has very upscale and safe places) this is what it looks like.

    I actually drove through the number 2 area today. It is like the third world in places like that. Almost unimaginable that it is in the middle of an American city.
