The 10 Most Dangerous Cities in the US


Forbes has released it’s annual “Most Dangerous Cities” list and we have all the information on which cities made the list this year. Before we begin, we should note that Forbes used a very strategic formula in choosing the cities for the list. “To compile the list, we start with the FBI’s Crime Statistics database, screening for cities with populations above 200,000,” the sites notes. “That eliminates cities like Flint, Mich., with its record-busting murder rate of 63 per 100,000, but allows us to focus on major American cities that presumably have full-fledged police departments.”

So, which cities topped the list? Scroll through to find out:
