1. ## Most Dangerous States - Is your state keeping it gangsta?

2005 List
"1" is Most Dangerous, "50" is Safest

My birth state Delaware representing at number 15. Showing Philly and Jersey how to be gangsta. Boo ya ca sha!
Congratulations to Nevada. Keep up the good work.
Biggest shocker - Alaska keeping it gangsta at number 8.
Biggest letdown - Pennsylvania at 30. As a part-time Philly resident I am very disappointed. Gangstas, get busy, we can do better.

METHODOLOGY: The Most Dangerous State 2005 rankings are determined by a four step process. First, rates for six crime categories — murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft — are plugged into a formula that measures how a state compares to the national average for a given crime category.
Second, the outcome of this equation is then multiplied by a weight assigned to each crime category. For this year’s award, we again gave each crime category equal weight. Thus state comparisons are based purely on crime rates and how these rates stack up to the national average for a given crime category.

Third, the weighted numbers are added together to achieve state’s score ("SUM.") In the fourth and final step, these composite scores are ranked from highest to lowest to determine which states are the most dangerous and safest. Thus the farther below the national average a state’s crime rate is, the lower (and safer) it ranks. The farther above the national average, the higher (and more dangerous) a state ranks in the final list.

It goes by the whole state. Philly has had 34 shootings in the last 2 weeks, but there is miles and miles and miles of sticks in PA were the only thing getting killed is deer.

4. ahhhh ok ok I got'cha

5. Philly love Loz Philly love right here...

6. California is at number 10, that suprises me so much. I thought for sure we'd be number one. The murder capital is Oakland. I grew up in Nevada though.

12. Vermont is right at the bottom... good I always loved Vermont.

13. NJ and NY are surprising IMO....

Then again....how can you compete with the KKK in the south....

14. Known fact people lose it in Alaska during the months when it
darkness for what 16-18 hours a day or close to it... People go
crazy, read up on that a longtime ago how the murder rates
increase that time of year by a huge percentage...

15. Michigan keepin it gangsta.....

Except where I'm from......corn fed country boy......(I did however contribute to the stats...hahahaha)

JC

16. holy ****...AZ is 3!!! how in the hell?

i'm not buying it!

at least my extended family is safe in ND!! #50 baby!

17. They didn't factor in North Jersey by iteself, which anyone that's been there knows is worlds different then Central or Southern NJ, North Jersey is as bad as almost anywhere in the country... They should break it down by cities anyway and not states... I've seen some surprisingly bad areas in cities
you wouldn't think as being that bad...

Checking in at lucky number 13!

I wonder where good ole GA would be if they threw out every crime inside the 285 perimeter in Atlanta. lol

19. Woo Hoo! Number 6 baby! I think if we all pull together, here in FL, we could take over number one.

20. 25 right in the middle.
