“If you are under the age of 40, you’ve never been safer than you are today”

But that is no way to make people afraid! America’s Safest Cities.

The ranking of the cities is a bit interesting, but the start of the article is what the media is trying desperately to ignore.

There were 369 violent crimes reported for every 100,000 Americans in 2018, nearly the lowest violent crime rate in the United States in more than three decades. In an interview with 24/7 Wall St., John Roman, a senior fellow with NORC at the University of Chicago, an independent social research institution, explained that the latest crime statistics reflect an encouraging continuation of a long-term trend.

“If you are under the age of 40, you’ve never been safer than you are today,” Roman said.

Hat tip to 19th Ward Chicago, who has also reminded me that the final version of the FBI’s Crime in the US report for 2018 has been released. I will have to dive into it, since I haven’t done so in a number of years.

The list of safest cities can be found at this link; it starts with Boca Raton, Florida in 50th place.
