The CQ Press's annual study of U.S. crime statistics shows that Camden, NJ is no longer the most dangerous city in the country—it's just the second most dangerous city. St. Louis, MO, with 2,070.1 violent crimes per 100,000 residents was #1 (the national average is 429.4). Other cities in the top five are Michigan's Detroit and Flint and Oakland, CA. The safest city? Colonie, NY. NYC is #256 while Newark, NJ is #29. Of course, the FBI and other agencies have denounced the study's methodology.
