Baltimore, Md. (AP) - Baltimore ranks second and D.C. fourth in a ranking of the most dangerous cities with populations over 500,000, according to a survey by the Kansas-based research company Morgan Quitno.
Detroit comes in at the top of the list and Memphis, Tenn., is number three on the most dangerous list. San Jose, Calif., is considered the safest city in cities with populations over 500,000, followed by Honolulu.
The Morgan Quitno company compared towns and city areas of different populations based on FBI statistics. They are compared to the national average of things like murders, rapes, robberies, assaults, burglaries and car thefts.
Among the 342 largest cities, Baltimore ranks fifth on the most dangerous list, with Richmond 13th and D.C. 14th. Amherst, N.Y. was considered the safest, followed by Brick Township, N.J.
