Most Dangerous Cities In America: 24/7 Wall Street Breaks Down FBI Data (PHOTOS)


Different year, same story.

The latest 24/7 Wall Street list of the most dangerous cities in America looks very similar to the one that came out at this time last year.

All of the cities from that list appear in this year's edition, with only a few changing places with each other. The list also looks a lot like Forbes' compilation from a year ago.

Nationally, things did change for the worse from year to year. 24/7 Wall Street reports that "after falling for five consecutive years, the number of violent crimes across the United States rose by 1.2 percent in 2012."
