According to a new report, St Louis tops the FBI’s list of most dangerous cities across the Unites States. More than 88 violent crimes took place for every 10,000 residents in the Missouri city during the first half of 2015 – compared to an average rate of 36.6 across the US in 2014, FBI data reveals.
Those crimes can include robbery, aggravated assault, rape and even murder. The listing places St Louis above the notoriously dangerous Detroit which has topped the list in previous years thanks to the city’s high gun crime rate. Detroit is now listed as third after Memphis, Tennessee which had 84.2 violent crimes per 10,000 residents. CONTINUE
