Jacksonville beat Atlanta? Wow I am surprised.

Not ranked; just listed one for each SEC state.

What is this based on? Obviously higher population = higher crime. What about per capita? I mean bar none, Louisville has the most crime in the state. Especially East end. North end of Lexington is rough too, but it's not like I'm scared to walk around most of that area at night. Some parts of Georgetown Street and Russell Cave I won't fool around on after dark, as well as some of the numbered streets downtown, but that's about it.

Yup, Jackson is by far the most crime-ridden city in all of Mississippi.

Although Greenville definitely gives it a run for it's money, as does Mound Bayou ( <----Not nearly comparable in size, but anyway....).

Sucks to see Jackson go down hill like it did. My fathers side all graduated from Miss. State and I would go over there every summer as a kid. Could ride your bike just about anywhere in town.

Little Rock has a pretty s--tty crime rate. Pine Bluff is probably worse, if you consider percentage of the population.

I got a phone call from someone in Pine Bluff at work the other day. Could barely understand a word they were saying.

That's why a lot of guys from PB and LR are so good at track- they are already used to guns and whistles...

its fine for golf or bars by the levee. doe's is ok to eat at too. just when you get to the stop light turn west toward doe's and all will be fine. turn east and i give you 45 seconds to get 5 blocks. kinda like being a contestant on "The Running Man".

If you ever get a chance, and are in Greenville, check out the old house my parents used to own and I lived in until I was 6, on 540 South Main St.

^Used to be a blue house, well kept, nice neighborhood, great place to live.

Now........ *shudders*

I'm not surprised.But I have had alot of dealings in Pine Blff over the years and like everywhere else a small percentage of the poplation(bad guys) can give everyone a bad name.
