5 U.S. Cities Too Dangerous to Move To
Fifth-most-dangerous U.S. city to move to: Saginaw, Mich.
Saginaw, an old industrial town some 100 miles northwest of Detroit, has seen crime soar as the manufacturing sector's decline drained the city of jobs and people.
The 51,300-population community has a murder rate that's 3.6 times the national average and rape and robbery levels almost three times what's typical for a city of Saginaw's size. Worse, the community's aggravated-assault rate is nearly eight times the U.S. average, which Schiller calls "outrageous."Saginaw residents also face a property-crime rate 32% above the U.S. average, including a burglary rate that's more than triple the national average. And while local rates of car thefts and larceny/theft are actually below average, Saginaw residents nonetheless run a 1-in-16 chance of falling victim to crime in any given year.
