The Most Violent Small Cities In America: Law Street

As some U.S. cities saw their crime rates decline year over year, others saw them spike enough to land them on Law Street's list of most dangerous cities for the first time

Cities like Richmond, California, saw significant crime declines compared to a similar ranking released earlier this year. Others, like Lansing, Michigan, saw a surge in violent crime numbers that led to its first-ever appearance on the list.

Law Street looked at newly released numbers from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report for 2013. The site compiled numbers for four violent crimes including murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

The only cities considered were ones with populations between 100,000 and 200,000.
