N. Chas one of the most dangerous cities in the US


Recommended Posts


Detroit is #1.

From the article:

The report looked at 378 cities with at least 75,000 people based on per-capita rates for homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and auto theft. Each crime category was considered separately and weighted based on its seriousness, CQ Press said.

Last year's crime leader, St. Louis, fell to No. 2. Another Michigan city, Flint, ranked third, followed by Oakland Calif.; Camden, N.J.; Birmingham, Ala.; North Charleston, S.C.; Memphis, Tenn.; Richmond, Calif.; and Cleveland.

The study ranked Mission Viejo, Calif., as the safest U.S. city, followed by Clarkstown, N.Y.; Brick Township, N.J.; Amherst, N.Y.; and Sugar Land, Texas.

That still doesnt change the fact that North Charleston is one of the Top 10 worst cities in the country based on crime. The cities violent crime rate and murder rate are both in the Top 10 to 20 in the country. The company that makes this list did not alter any statistics, so they are what they are. The methodology is fair, and besides Chicago, none of the few cities left off had any chance of being ranked higher than North Charleston.

The FBIs rejection is irrelevant in this case.

^That of course is your opinion. The FBI releases the statistics and I would assume they are completely qualified to describe how their statistics are to be used. You simply can't look at overall crime rates for something as inconsistent as a city limits (or metro area for that matter) and say that X is the safest or most dangerous place in the USA.

I agree. Thats not what I was arguing though. The point Im making is that North Charlestons violent crime statistics are in the TOP 10 in the United States Of America. This is a fact. Regardless of how accurate or innaccurate the methodology they use to calculate their rankings are, one thing remains the same and that is how extremely high North Charleston/Charleston metro regions crime statistics are compared to most other cities in the country.

If you dont believe me see for yourself.
