2. Except for Minneapolis.

It must have something to do with the large Somali population.

3. 25. Nashville, TN

Regarding their assessment on the employment rate. I wonder if they factored in the rate of under-employment? I wonder what the under-employment looks like in Nashville.

5. Houstons crime stats are better than some cities

But the Sunnyside and Acres Home areas are some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the nation. That fact gets whitewashed when you average crime stats city-wide.

6. Phoenix just tied last year's number of police shootings and we've got 6 more months to go.

Right now we're even with the number of all shootings for LA of last year. Thugs here don't stand a chance, they're simply eliminated.

7. Gotta be a bogus list

No way you are going to convince me New Orleans is not in the top 25.
