Don't Meet Me in St. Louis

St. Louis beat out Detroit, Flint, Compton and Camden to top a list of the most dangerous cities in America. On the other end of the spectrum, a small town called Brick, N.J., is this year’s safest city.


AP (via SFGate):

A list of the safest and most dangerous cities overall, as compiled by Morgan Quitno Press, which bases the rankings on FBI figures released in June. The list starts with the safest cities and ends with the most dangerous.

Only cities that reported crime rates were included in the list. For example, New Orleans was not included this year because its police department did not report figures.

1. Brick, N.J.

2. Amherst, N.Y.

3. Mission Viejo, Calif.
