According to the new 'City Crime Rankings', Amherst, NY is the safest city in America, for the fourth year in a row. No word on whether it's because all the would-be criminals are napping, or slitting their wrists out of boredom.
On the other end of the scale, Detroit, MI returns as the most dangerous city, after being edged out last year by St. Louis, MO. Congratulations(?) to Detroit to reclaiming the 'crime crown' it held in 1999-2001, before getting pimp-slapped by St. Louis last year. Way to come back, Motor City!
Looking closer, four of the 'most dangerous' cities are in the midwest -- Detroit, St. Louis, Dayton, OH, and Gary, IN. What the hell is the 'Bible belt heartland' coming to, anyway?
