The 15 Most Dangerous Cities In America

The FBI has broken down data on violent crimes throughout the U.S. Murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault fall into that category.[slideshow:86154]

All of them have increased, while property crimes have decreased, during first six months of 2015 when compared to 2014.

Surprisingly, for some, Detroit is not the most violent city in the country anymore. In fact, it was one of few on the list that has seen a decrease in all crimes that are considered violent. St. Louis, Missouri tops the ranking.

Certain cities, such as Memphis, Baltimore and Cleveland, remain in the Top 10 even if they have dropped or moved up.
