Sorry Detroit, but here’s yet another dismal statistic… Most dangerous city based on 2010 statistics from the FBI. 1,111 violent crimes per 100,000 residents! Great, just what we need… something for all the gangbangers to be proud of. Pretty soon, they’ll have driven out the rest of the residents of Detroit, and have completed Detroit’s transformation into the world’s largest urban prairie.
Another dismal statistic for Detroit. In 2008, Forbes Magazine has labeled Detroit the most miserable city in America, read about it HERE. How Detroit was only ranked #7 in 2009 is beyond me. All I know is, 2009 was a rough year for the city, with an unemployment rate closing in on 30% and home prices falling faster than ever, it’s a shoe-in for the 2010 ranking when they come out.
What do you think? Have you ever been to another city in the US that was worse than Detroit in terms of overall quality of living?
