  1. i wonder why these cities are listed as most dangerous cities if their system work perfectly then it will not be in that list

    1. Thank you for your input. As this particular listing pertains to the year of 2015, some of the cities appearing here have since been removed from these rankings. Your notion of a legal system that functions in accordance with the law somehow being a contributing factor to any one particular locality not having been included in the above survey has merit, but not in how you may have been led to believe.
      Many reach a similar conclusion, positing the belief that cities plagued by a heightened incidence of crime and illegal activity are somehow the by-product of the system's failure to address the root causes of communal degradation. Rather, what can be construed as a more accurate assessment of criminality's proliferation, is the engineered collapse of civilization by Elitist assemblies within that city's representative constituencies who exploit poverty, as well as diminished employment opportunities for their own personal gain (the conscious commitment to deceive residents of their districts of confluence into accepting a prescribed set of 'solutions' that were never formulated with the intent to provide relief). This is a systemic issue at the federal level where the corrupt reign with impunity, passing legislation that is diametrically opposed to the viability of the nation's economy, thereby insuring what can only be described as the modern-day incarnation of indentured servitude for future generations. Put simply, crime is oftentimes the result of the absence of opportunity to advance economically that is, more often than not, deliberately orchestrated by those given the authority to establish legal precedent. Individuals whose actions contradict the best interests of those they claim to represent.
