Flint, Michigan has held the title of "The Most Violent City in the U.S." since 2010. We were finally knocked from the top spot on the FBI's list, but it seems a little bit silly that people are celebrating... we are still on the list.
Flint residents are used to reading about how terrible their city is in the national media. This time Flint is the focus of an article found at PolicyMic.com titled "This is America's Most Apocalyptic, Violent City — And You’ve Probably Never Heard Of It."

According to a new list from Forbes Magazine, Flint, along with Saginaw and Battle Creek all landed in the top 10 most dangerous U.S. cities for women -- click through to see where our city landed as well as the rest of the list and a breakdown of the numbers.
