People across America are concerned about a variety of issues, from rising inflation to media bias, to rising fuel costs.
But among all the issues currently on the minds of concerned Americans, one in particular tends to stand out: the threat of rising crime.
A threat that has risen to new height in the months and years since the riots that followed the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020.
A new study by Wallethub has used a variety of new data sets to help determine the safest and most dangerous cities in America in 2022.
The following is a list of the cities the study has concluded are the ten most dangerous in the country according to the study’s criteria:
10) Chattanooga, TN
With a violent crime rate nearly 3x the national average, do you believe the Chattanooga Police Department should be defunded?

Addt: Only 300 officers, Fed decree to reduce prisoners at jail, crime lab unable to process.
