The 10th most dangerous city in America?
We're so used to the Twin Cities placing high in national rankings of one sort or another that a new survey from U.S. News brought us up short: Minneapolis is tied with Cleveland - Cleveland! - as the 10th most dangerous city in America.

U.S. News says the rankings are based on the prevalence of property crime, such as burglary and motor vehicle theft, as well as violent crimes such as like murder and robbery. Cities with the highest homicide rates -- New Orleans and Richmond, Virginia -- are not in the Top 10 here because their overall crime rate was judged to be less risky.

Here's the Top 11:

1. St. Louis
2. Atlanta
3. Birmingham Alabama (tie)
3. Orlando (tie)
5. Detroit
6. Memphis
7. Miami
8. Baltimore
9. Kansas City, Missouri
10. Minneapolis (tie)
10. Cleveland (tie)

It's hard to know what to make of this bad news. Consider how Minneapolis has performed in other surveys this past year:

For those who think that Minneapolis is dangerous than DC, Gary, Flint, Atlanta or Chicago; I say you need to travel more. Tlist is a donkey crap. I lived in San Francisco and I don't see any reason why Minneapolis is dangerous than Oakland or Richmond, CA.

niggers made us number ten. they're striving towards number one though. shitty parenting among black families will help that along. then they can blame whitey, as usual!

Exactly why I shoot most people I meet on the street. No telling which one of you creeps is a crime lord. Please ignore the 4000% increase in shootings in my neighborhood.
