LITTLE ROCK, AR – Arkansas’s capital city is the “Most Dangerous Small City” in the United States with a population under 200-thousand, according to a survey just released by a media website.
Law Street Media says it bases the rankings of cities on its Top 10 list on FBI crime data.
“Little Rock has moved up by four spots to #1 on the list after coming in at #5 last year. The city’s overall violent crime rose from approximately 1,315/100,000 people in 2012 to 1,407/100,000 people in 2013; this increase is responsible for Little Rock’s rise on the list. However, there may be some good news. While Little Rock’s overall violent crime rate is up, the murder rate is down by almost 22 percent,” the website article said.
