Fox Detroit, May 17, 2016
Would you categorize Detroit as being one of the most deadly cities in the country? What about the entire world?
The Active Times just named the city as the second of five you should (and we’re quoting, here) “never visit alone” based on the city’s crime rate.
The Active Times writes “Although Detroit is trying to make a comeback; it is still considered one of the most dangerous cities. Robberies, sexual assaults, murders, break-ins and drugs are controlling the streets.”
Then the list moved on. Also on the list are Lima, Peru, and New Delhi, India, with Memphis, Tennessee rounding out the five cities.
For the record, Detroit was named more dangerous than Caracas, Venezuela and San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Caracas has the highest murder rate in the world last year, yet Detroit is more dangerous, according to the article. In San Pedro Sula, the journal cites arms trafficking and a crime rate of 111 per 100,000.
Other American cities include Birmingham, Alabama, St. Louis, and Oakland, California.
