U.S.A: 10 Most Dangerous Cities (Forbes)

Update:

Forbes has released it’s annual “Most Dangerous Cities” list. Forbes compiled the list, using the FBI’s Crime Statistics database, screening for cities with populations above 200,000,”. That eliminates cities like Flint, Michigan with its extremely high murder rate of 63 per 100,000 residents, but allows Forbes to focus on major American cities. Detroit tops the list for the third year in a row — and St. Louis, Baltimore and Cleveland also made the list. Police Brutality Graphic with billy club raised
