Tally is the only surprise, of the FL cities.

Crime in Florida recently hit a 44-year low, but a new report reveals that several Palm Beach County cities are considered to be among the most dangerous in the nation.

Riviera Beach (40th) and Lake Worth (47th) made a list of the 100 most dangerous cities with 25,000 people or more, compiled by Neighborhood Scout. Other Florida cities on the list are Fort Pierce, Miami, North Miami, Miami Beach, Homestead, Orlando, Fort Myers, Daytona Beach, Panama City, and Tallahassee.

    "Rivera Beach" has rapidly grown to be a perfect example of a liberal
    entitlement contemporary slave plantation city.

    I spelled it that way since most residents struggle with
    three syllables, . . . much less pronouncing four.

    I used to work there some years ago in an industrial area.
    We had a large sign outside, "No cash sales. We do not
    have cash in this office."

    Er, uh, . . . what used to be called a classic ghetto area.

    Riviera Beach is a rough neighbor hood, I grew up in North Palm Beach, but North Miami Beach is way worse, used to commute thru there when I95 was clogged, to get to MIA 20th or 27th ave can be real sketchy never stopped, even stop signs, and only slowed at red lights.

    Miami has exported its thugery to Tallahassee. The Miami Dade / FAMU connection is strong.

    Dangerous for Who?

    Certainly not for those in the gated communities.

    How about a little demographics on those dangerous areas, the perpetrators and the victims.

    I would guess you would find gangs and drugs involved in most of it.

    "Shirley" you are not serious!" :wink

    Why the emphasis on demographics and their killings and related drug use? At this point, what difference does it make? Dat's racist! :Spittingcoffee

    "Rivera Beach" was established as a "slave plantation city" when Flagler ferried all the black residents of Palm Beach there for a feast, and burned all their homes and stranded them there.

    Or so the story goes.

    Really surprised Jacksonville isn't on there anywhere. A few years ago it was touted as the murder capital of Florida.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Probably because it is so large and populated and the rankings are per capita.

    Correct. Same reason Chicago isn't on the list.
