5 U.S. Cities Too Dangerous to Move To

Third-most-dangerous U.S. city to move to: Flint, Mich.

Filmmaker Michael Moore chronicled the decline and fall of his hometown of Flint in the 1989 documentary Roger & Me, which detailed the city's woes following moves by General Motors (GM) to close several factories there.

Flint, which is some 40 miles south of Saginaw, has lost even more jobs and residents since -- leading to lots of crime.

The city's overall violent-crime rate is more than six times the U.S. average, including a murder rate that's 10.2 times what's typical.

Flint's 101,600 residents also face an aggravated-assault rate nearly seven times above average, as well as a robbery rate more than five times the average and rape levels 3.3 times the U.S. norm.

Coupled with five times the typical level of burglaries, more than three times the expected number of auto thefts and 15%-above-average larceny/thefts, bad guys target about one Flint resident in 11 in any given year.
