Flint No Longer America’s Most Violent City

Being known as the most dangerous city in America is no longer a crown the city of Flint wears.  It’s now the second most dangerous.  Check out the details on crime rates and what categories Flint still leads in.


According to the FBI, Flint, Michigan no longer is the most violent city in America, but it’s not too far behind the new leader, Camden, N.J.  In cities with a population of over 50,000 people, Flint is behind Camden and ahead of Saginaw, Detroit and St. Louis.

As far as cities with a population of over 100,000 residents, for the second year running, Flint leads the nation in violent crimes.  When it comes to arson, Flint lost it’s top spot from last year to Youngstown, Ohio.

In the past year, Flint has recorded 2,392 violent crimes including 85 rapes, 1,648 cases of aggravated assaults, 607 robberies and 58 murders.  Considering the city saw just 52 murders in 2011, it’s not a case of Flint getting better, more so a case of another city getting worse.

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling claims public safety is a top priority and the city is doing everything it can to be a safer place.  “Crime continues to be the top concern of everyone in our community so regardless of ranking compared to other places.  We all know the city of Flint needs to do more to create a safe environment.”
