Most Dangerous Cities In America

4 of 12

8. Baltimore, Maryland

Violent Crime Per 1,000: 14.6
2010 Murders: 223
Median Income: $38,772 (22.7% below national average)

Baltimore had the eighth-highest rate of violent crime per capita in 2010 among cities with 100,000 or more residents, and the second-highest east of the Mississippi. The number of violent crimes has dropped slightly in the past year – from 9,600 to 9,300 – but the Maryland city has some of the worst rates of dangerous offenses in the country. This includes the tenth-worst aggravated assault rate – and the fourth-worst murder rate in the country. (AP Photo/Steve Ruark) More From 24/7 Wall St.:
