My retirement plan Z, a trailer in Lubbock, is looking slightly less appealing…

And there goes my dream of a Lean-to in Flint Michigan.

Why doesn’t Philadelphia pop up? I thought it was the homicide capital.

Anchorage?? Lived there most of the 90s. I guess things change. Granted one runs a higher risk of being mauled by a bear or stomped on by a moose within the city limits but how did Oakland, CA miss the list? I guess shotgun takeovers of high end restaurants for dinner entertainment has finally gone out of style there.

Violent crime has dropped significantly over the last 20 years, especially in big cities. Notice that none of the major cities that have a reputation of violence, such as NY, Washington and Chicago, made the list.

According to this story, Philly hit the per capita murder rate for big cities this year. I’m guessing the story above take other crimes like robbery and assault into account.

I was a little surprised to hear this on KYW this morning. The CBS Philly story doesn’t cite sources, naturally. Philly can be rough, but without more info I’d hold off judgement.

Speaking from my bunker in Lubbock, I can tell you that our fair city had 9 homicides in 2011, assuming no late additions tonight. This is about the same as the national average and much, much lower than in the past. Lubbock had the worst homicide rate in the country in 1977, with an all but incredible 52 murders (7 times the national average). The real boost in our statistical standing is the rate of aggravated assaults, which is about 3 times the national average. One could conclude from this that Lubbockites are prone to violence but aren’t all that good at it.

I am rather surprised New Orleans didn’t make this list.

And NYC is in the 10 safest (blow on knuckles, rub knuckles on lapel).

How many people are in Lubbock? Looking to compare per capita rates — NYC had 502 murders in 2011 (as of yesterday morning), in a city of 8.4 million.
