There may be a lot under the surface, but one would expect the 100top dangerous cities to include those travelers/visitors should be afraid to walk the street, y'know?
Having been in the hospitals of Little Rock (lately, since my baby's at ACH), and Fort Smith (often since i've lived there my entire life), I can't say that the ER's are all that busy, nor exciting, generally only filled with car-wreck or accident injuries. Likewise, the people that fill the FortSmith pen' are mostly drug/alcohol offenders, and rarely violence related (public intox generally.)
I just in general I think this list is FUBAR, I mean, no Detroit, no Chicago, no NYC, Los Angeles is included, but only referred to as its suburbs, I think... Its almost like the creator of the list is picking on the smaller Large cities...
"How quickly a man takes on the qualities of darkness. Men who live by night; the soldier, the thief, the traveller by night, the vagabond... theirs is a different way of thinking, and they do not fear the dark nor what may come upon them by night because they themselves are of the night, a part of it." ~louis lamour
