The only way for the miserable denizen of provincial backwaters  like Waco and Sheboygan to feel any better about themselves is to believe that San Francisco, Seattle and New York are, "Shitholes"...

When I was stationed at the Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton, CA in the early 80's I once watched a huge rogue male bison stand off head to head against a amphibious tracked vehicle in the middle of a dirt mountain road. He would charge and the vehicle would back up, never the buffalo. Finally the Amtrak left the road and went around the huge beast who just shook his head, snorted, and ambled off down the with honor satisfied. Me and my buds were standing about 20 yards away laughing our heads off.

Gee, changing the filters to show the safest places puts several Florida cities at the top of the list.  Maybe Ron DeSantis is doing something right, after all.  (BTW, Chicago didn't make it on this list, either.)

Top Ten Safest Places:

  1. Naples, FL
  2. Port St. Lucie, FL
  3. Fort Myers, FL
  4. Portland, ME
  5. Lakeland, FL
  6. Tampa, FL

The only thing DeSantis is doing is avoiding the reality of crime in Florida. Florida is one of four states where less than half of the police departments in the state report their crime stats to the FBI. No wonder so many Florida cities are on the safest places to live. 

I live in Ocala the real stats from local crime report shows Ocala as one of the most dangerous places with crime rates well above the national average. Daytona Beach is known as the most dangerous city in Florida with a violent crime rate well above the national average.

The list is a sham.

So, the good news is a sham while the bad news is dead-on accurate.  Doesn't that suggest there is some sort of bias in the news reporting?  Wonder why that might be? 

Both the safest and most dangerous lists came from data on the same 150 cities.  Just using different filters (available on the US News site) generates the two lists.  But the list of the good news is a lie while the list of the bad news is the truth.  See why the United States has been fucked over by the politics of Obama, Clinton, Biden, the Squad, and the new Democrats?  They ain't happy till no one is happy.  The liberal bias depends upon finding the bad in the every situation.

We're supposed to trust the data until we're not supposed to.  Trust in liberals depends upon believing what you want to believe.  Doesn't this illustrate how elections are rigged?  Doesn't this demonstrate how it is possible to steal elections?

I pointed out facts that made the list a sham, all are verifiable, so if the ''good'' list is a sham that would indicate that the ''bad'' list might be a sham as well. Pretty simple.

Nothing better than the eye test.    Observation is your best list.    It’s also tougher to cover up major crime like murders/homocide than lesser crime like theft, muggings etc so they tend to be more accurate lists I think.

I live in “safe” sleepy small town in northern Michigan where we don’t have a few murders per week but rather a few murders per year.    But even here, as my former sister in law would say.    Who was a former assistant prosecutor, if you only knew how much crime there really was here.

Resort areas try to cover that stuff up the best they can to attract tourists.    Like Daytona Beach.

If you want bothsiderism then you need to slam both sides.  Don't rag on my comment and call it an objective rebuttal.  That might win a Pulitzer Prize but it's not quite honest, is it?

BTW, the most dangerous cities in Florida doesn't mean they're the most dangerous in the country.  How many street gangs are there in Ocala or Daytona Beach?  Here's a map of gang territories in Chicago:    And Chicago didn't make it on either the good list or the bad list.

Ronin listed them in his comment 5.2 hours ago, but here are more for you.

Since you brought up Chicago here is the crime rate Daytona Beach vs Chicago. Chicago looks pretty safe compared to Daytona Beach.

2024 Compare Crime Rates:
Daytona Beach, FL vs Chicago, IL


  Daytona Beach, FL Chicago, IL United States
  Violent Crime 63.2 49.9 22.7
  Property Crime 85.8 46.3 35.4

The Crime Indices range from 1 (low crime) to 100 (high crime).  

If you want bothsiderism then you need to slam both sides.  Don't rag on my comment and call it an objective rebuttal.  That might win a Pulitzer Prize but it's not quite honest, is it?

My comment had nothing to do with bothsiderism, it pointed out that the list of ''good cities'' was faulty, and if you find part of a statement is faulty when it leads to the possibility of the other data being faulty. You are the one trying to make it into a one-sided rag, and yes my comment is honest.

BTW, the most dangerous cities in Florida doesn't mean they're the most dangerous in the country.  How many street gangs are there in Ocala or Daytona Beach?  Here's a map of gang territories in Chicago:  2023 Gang Territorial Boundaries (opens a PDF)  And Chicago didn't make it on either the good list or the bad list.  

I never stated that the most dangerous cities in Florida were the most dangerous in the country. I pointed out that Daytona Beach was the most dangerous city in Florida.

Just in case you missed the states I posted above.


  Daytona Beach, FL Chicago, IL United States
  Violent Crime 63.2 49.9 22.7
  Property Crime 85.8 46.3 35.4

Since you brought up Chicago here is the crime rate Daytona Beach vs Chicago. Chicago looks pretty safe compared to Daytona Beach.

Now wait one cotton-pickin' minute.  You claimed the Florida numbers are 'good' because the crime ain't reported.  And you provide links to prove crime is under reported so you can slam DeSantis.  Then you provide data of reported crime that shows Florida is a crime shithole.   So, which data is the lie?  And which lie are we supposed to believe?  The one we want to believe?

You slammed my list of safest places so you could bad-mouth DeSantis.  But that's not partisan.  Now you are arguing against yourself to do what?  Prove that liberal shit smells like roses?

Hillary Clinton would be so proud.

I never said Florida numbers are ''good'' because crime ain't reported, how you arrived at that conclusion is stunning, that parallel universe you're in certainly is entertaining if nothing else.

You certainly have a way of not understanding comments or is it willful ignorance? either way it's reminiscent of Professor Edwin Corey explaining how to split an atom.

I didn't bad-mouth DeSantis I pointed out that he should spend more time getting the accurate crime stats for Florida than say, fighting his ''woke war''. BTW DeSantis constantly brags about the low crime rate we have in Florida and in reality, it isn't low at all. Liberal shit doesn't smell like roses, it smells just like shit is suposed to smell I leave the spreading of BS to the partisans of MN.

I know, logic and facts must be a challenge.

Hillary Clinton would be so proud.

What in the world does Hillary Clinton have to do with It, oh wait is she in Chicago which also has nothing to do with the article. These connections that you trying to make are tenuous at best.

Cheers.

You mean FBI data that isn't complete because not every city bothers to submit all of their data?

It doesn't surprise me that Little Rock is high on the list. I think they broke the record for murders January 31, 2024. Ok...kidding. But about every day there's a new murder

Anchorage surprises me, tho

The only time I ever chose to live in a suburb was when I was transferred to Little Rock, Ark.

Yeah...the houses are all way too close together. I like my bedroom community because it's farther out from Little Rock and more country. We found the perfect spot. Three acres of trees and only 5 minutes from Walmart
