OKAY...so there's this website - 247wallst.com - that has listed
"The 25 Most Dangerous Cities in America" as well as "The 25 Safest Cities in America."

So what's the big deal? I'll tell ya: Lansing was rated as the 16th "Most Dangerous" in an analysis that was made in 2015.
How so?
Thusly:

Lansing murders in 2015: 09
Lansing poverty rate: 29.4%
Lansing unemployment rate: 6.3%
Lansing violent crimes per 100,000: 1,157.0

REALLY?
What Einstein came up with that conclusion, you ask?
ANSWER: The FBI, that's who.

Click these following two links to read the complete list of
"The 25 Most Dangerous Cities in America" as well as
"The 25 Safest Cities in America".....of which there's not ONE Michigan city...the majority of these "safe cities" are found in California, which I find suspicious.

California is notorious for murders, drugs, earthquakes, serial killers, riots, looting...and yet, they seem to rank #1 in having the most 'safe cities'.....TEN of 'em in this list!

Yeah, well, BULL.
