St. Louis Not On A ‘Most Dangerous Cities’ List

Michael Calhoun

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Has crime dropped in St. Louis? According to a new ‘Most Dangerous Cities‘ list by Forbes Magazine we’re not that back off.

Forbes magazine crunched the same FBI numbers that routinely put St. Louis on top. But instead of looking within exact city limits, they considered the areas that associate with the city. So the St. Louis Metro, not St. Louis City.

And when you consider that, the Metro, St. Louis doesn’t even crack the list.

Detroit lives up to its reputation, though, and ranks first. Second is Memphis and third is Springfield, Illinois.

Also on the top-ten list: Anchorage, Alaska; Lubbock, Texas; Las Vegas and Rockford, Illinois.
