Top Ten Most Dangerous Cities in America Each Led by a Democrat
examiner.com ^ | October 20, 2012 | Barry Secrest

Posted on 03/04/2013 7:11:07 PM PST by grundle

Detroit for the fourth year in a row, is ranked as the "most dangerous city" in America according to Forbes online.

The statistics indicate that Detroit suffered about 2,137 acts of violent crime per 100,000 residents. However, when we rank the extraordinary crime levels for each of these 'dangerous' cities, we noticed a startling trend in our quick research, and we weren't the only ones who noticed it, apparently.

You see, each of these cities has one commonality being that each is also led by a Democrat Mayor, and these days you know what Democrat actually means....

"Liberal."

Indeed, if insanity is defined as doing the same things over and over again while expecting different results, then these residents of the most dangerous cities must simply adore the crime waves they're enduring.

Ranking all of the rest by least dangerous to most dangerous:

10th- Buffalo, N.Y. (Democrat Mayor )

9th- Cleveland (Democrat Mayor )

8th- Stockton, Calif. (Democrat Mayor)

7th- Baltimore (Democrat Mayor)

6th- Atlanta (Democrat Mayor)

5th- Birmingham, Ala (Democrat Mayor)

4th- Memphis, Tenn (Democrat mayor)

3rd- Oakland, Calif (Democrat Mayor)

2nd- St. Louis. [Source] (Democrat mayor)

You just can't make this stuff up....

There are parts of Cleveland that are very scary.
There are other parts that I would take my family to with no reservation.

Actually damn near every city, town or hamlet have a Martin Luther King Street, Avenue, Boulevard or road.

One thing most have in common is; It ain’t safe for man nor beast to be on Martin Luther King Street, Avenue, Boulevard or road after dark. Usually through the worst area of the worst ghetto in the town.

Your comment could be labeled racist or it could be labeled factual. It must be added that 7 of those ten states also voted democrat in the last election.

ps
I am a white boy from a long line of white boys and my wife is a lovely shade of brown from South of the border and I do not tolerate bigots or racism. Your comment was factual and not bigoted nor was it racial.

Sometimes facts can be ugly.

They need to stop cutting support for law and order when they fail to get the increased tax revenue that they want.

It is not so much because of the party of the mayor, but it is the percentage of blacks in the population.
I was born in Memphis and spent all but the last 12 years
in or near Memphis.
It was the nations cleanest and quietest city, with the number one fire department.
The city was 60w/40b.
The city reversed to 60b/40w and became a cesspool with black government.
The once famous Memphis light, Gas, and Water division, a model for the nation, has been split up and sold off to companies that are not even in Tennessee.
Murder has soared.

Memphis is “Gone With the Wind”.

Anecdotal but a former high school class mate of mine was robbed and murdered on a city street, in broad day light in Memphis, the year was 1964. The case has never been solved.

I don’t spend much time in or around Memphis but when I drive through I don’t stop and I get the creeps.

I grew up in Eastern Arkansas and it was a fun time to “go to Memphis”. Now many people in that part of the state will drive farther to go to Little Rock when they need a “big city” service.

“Top Ten Most Dangerous Cities in America Each Led by a Democrat…”

Burlington, Vermont is also led by ‘rats — probably some of the “mostest leftist” in America.

But it’s quite safe there.

Can anyone figure out why that is?

It is surprising that Chicago, where they don’t let the sun set until there’s been at least 24 gun homicides in the previous 24 hours, it not on this list.

Hey Rhambo, you’re screwing up.

” class mate of mine was robbed and murdered on a city street, in broad day light in Memphis, the year was 1964.”
_______________________________________________________

In 1964, that would be a freak and extremely rare incident that might happen anywhere in the country.
Today it would be just run of the mill daily life in Memphis.
I still have a daughter living there.

The figures may be skewed by city boundaries.
They do not reflect the metropolitan area.
I do not know about Chicago, but as an example, Atlanta is a very small town, maybe less then 500,000 in the city proper.
Cities become landlocked by suburban municipalities.

You take vast majority black cities or counties and give them typical GOP leaders and it might improve a bit but the underlying issues will remain.

This is such bullshite and folks trot it out all the time.

I grew up in the south in a (back then) majority white city..Jackson MS...and it was a one yellow dog party town till early 70s and ran just fine

There are plenty of white cities populated by liberals and run by democrats that while given to excess and all their crap still run fair enough...especially in comparison to these on the list

God knows I wish it was as simple as GOP always good and Dems always bad but it's not and those who think so are either stupid, ignorant or hopelessly naive.

ditto on most large hispanic populations

keep dreaming ya’ll while we circle right below the lid of the toilet bowl

It’s not surprising.

Urban areas are where welfare programs are. This is where blacks carve out areas and they quickly degrade into Fallujah-like neighborhoods.

They elect their liberal blacks to help spread other people’s weath around to themselves and scream “racist” if anyone objects.

This is why the urban liberals are pushing “regionalism”. They are trying to go after the money in the suburbs and exurbs to cover their excessive spending.

Don’t ever accept any form of regionalism. It’s all about urban areas sucking in money from areas that aren’t theirs.
