We’re Not Top 10

According to the 14th Annual “City Crime Rankings: Crime in Metropolitan America” Philadelphia is not one of the 10 most dangerous cities to live in. Based on the nightly news reports over the last few years I would have thought we would have soared to the top.

While Philadelphia may not be a top tier crime city, our friendly neighbor (or maybe it is unfriendly neighbor) Camden, NJ is listed in the top 10. The list goes as follows:

1. Detroit, MI
2. St. Louis, MO
3. Flint, MI
4. Oakland, CA
5. Camden, NJ
6. Birmingham, AL
7. North Charleston, SC
8. Memphis, TN
9. Richmond, CA
10. Cleveland, OH

It should be noted that the report has drawn sharp criticism, with the American Society of Criminology calling it an “irresponsible misuse” of crime data.
