Most Dangerous Cities in America

The results of CQ Press's 17th annual crime city rankings are in. The report ranks 400 American cities in six different categories -- murder, rape, burglary, robbery, aggravated assault and motor vehicle theft. The end result of these rankings were used to compile this list of the most dangerous cities in America.
