Oh ho! The FBI’s annual report “Crime in the United States,” which was released at the end of September, offers a window into the safety of U.S. metropolitan areas. Can you guess which are the three cities with the highest crime rates? New York? Chicago? Los Angeles? NOPE!

Memphis
Anchorage
Albuquerque

Well gosh by golly me,

@Sukiesnow Toronto?

Impossible... Canadians are too nice for that... unless of course it's caused by a bunch of redneck tourists from the States.

Ppl think New York is so bad...it's not.

Not as long as you stay close to Times Square, or stick to the neighborhoods where the rich liberals live. mischief smilie

LOL! You never tell the whole truth, Vic, and neither, apparently, does the FBI.
 
For example, in its effort to cover up the murder rate in St Louis proper, the FBI nevertheless admits that its figures for St. Louis "include Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair Counties, IL and Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles, St. Louis, and Warren Counties and St. Louis City, MO."  [Table 6]
 
Even at that, the FBI's murder rate for St. Louis (plus all that surrounding territory) per 100,000 is 12.8, MUCH higher than Albuquerque or Anchorage (each 8.9).
 
In fairness to the FBI, one can work out the murder statistics for St. Louis proper from their figures, but as they (and you,Vic) know full well, almost no one will do it.
 
So here it is, from the FBI's own figures: 205 murders in a city of 310,284. That works out to an annual murder rate per 100,000 of 205x100,000/310,284 = 66, which makes St. Louis the 13th most dangerous city in the world, as far as getting murdered is concerned. Baltimore is 21st, and both of those cities are more dangerous than any city in Honduras (oh, yeah... isn't that where all those "refugees" are coming from...? Don't give them "asylum" in St. Louis or Baltimore; they'll be in greater danger than before.)

Both St. Louis and Baltimore have been under Democrat control for decades (as has Memphis, btw), so Democrats and third-worldism are highly correlated, in more ways than one. hehe smilie

Only you would take a complete picture and crop it down to a single stat, then claim your data proves your point. Sheesh.

Me, Kemo Sabe...?  You're the one who took the FBI's crime-rate statistics for Memphis, Anchorage and Albuquerque at face value, and pretended they meant something.  Besides, I gave you more than one stat to make my point.
 
One factor you grossly overlooked is that the FBI waters down the statistics for high-crime cities by including large outlying populations. For example, they include a total population of about 2.8 million for Baltimore, when the city proper only has about 600,000, diluting Baltimore's crime statistics with suburban statistics by more than a factor of 4.  For Detroit, which has a slightly larger population of 671,000, they include 4.3 million, a dilution factor of more than 6.  And St. Louis, the worst of all, is watered down from 310,000 to 2.8 million, a dilution factor of 9!  Lying with statistics par excellence!
 
Meanwhile, what are the dilutions the FBI applies to your "oh ho!" cities?  Roughly a factor of only 2 for Memphis and Albuquerque each, and almost none at all (1.06) for Anchorage.  But surely you noticed that, didn't you Vic?  Naah... of course you didn't. hehe smilie
