Flint Most Violent City in Country for the Third Consecutive Year

WCRZ

Flint is once again the most violent city in the country according to final numbers from the FBI.

MLive says Flint had more than 2,700 violent crimes in 2012, the most per capita in cities with more than 100,000 people. Flint finished 2012 with 63 homicides, 108 rapes, 673 robberies and just over 1,900 aggravated assaults.

Officials are optimistic that next year’s report will be better with a report last by Flint’s Emergency Manager Michael Brown that said the city has seen a 24 percent reduction in violent crime in the first six months of this year.

Detroit was the second most violent city in the country last year. Oakland, CA., St.Louis and Memphis round out the top five.
