Once again predominantly-black Detroit tops the Forbes list of the Most Dangerous Cities for the fifth year in a row

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s crime database reports that Detroit had 386 murders in 2012, up from 344 in 2011 and essentially unchanged from 2000 – when the city had 200,000 more residents. The steady outflow of residents has driven Detroit’s murder rate up to 54.6 per 100,000, more than 10 times the national average and the highest in the country among large cities.
