The 10 Most Dangerous Cities In The United States For 2023

  1. Memphis, Tennessee
  2. Tacoma, Washington
  3. Pueblo, Colorado
  4. Oakland, California
  5. St. Louis, Missouri
  6. Little Rock, Arkansas
  7. Detroit, Michigan
  8. Denver, Colorado
  9. Minneapolis, Minnesota
  10. Kansas City, Missouri

Road Snacks shared that Memphis is the number one for the following reasons.

"Memphis may just be the worst city in America in many categories. Residents faced a 1 in 49 chance of being raped, assaulted, or murdered last year which is a 5% higher rate than the previous reporting year. There are perhaps 10,000 gang members in Shelby County. Why is Tennessee so violent? Like many of the states we’ve discussed earlier, poverty, high drug use and a lack of solid jobs are all contributing factors. A lot of property crime from druggies and other low lifes breaking into property, looking for drugs or money for drugs."

The Most Dangerous City in Michigan Is Also 7th in All of the United States
