Most Dangerous States In the USA

The Top Ten

1 Michigan Michigan

Why can't people just understand that only cities like Detroit and Flint are bad? Just visit a city like Traverse City or Grand Rapids and you'll change your mind! I've lived in Michigan my entire life and it's been fine! I don't understand what makes Michigan so dangerous. People who say that Michigan is the most dangerous state have either only been to Detroit or Flint, have heard stories about Detroit or Flint, or have never even been to Michigan.

I've lived in Michigan my whole life. I never was threatened in any way. Really, only Detroit and Flint are dangerous. TECHNICALLY I live in Detroit (I live in Northville, which is on the outskirts of Metro Detroit), and I never ever saw a crime scene. So whoever voted for this... seriously?! Detroit and Flint don't REPRESENT THE WHOLE STATE (not even close). I think I would know if I actually lived in North Ohio, rather than Michigan. I'm on the verge of ranting right now...

I've lived in Michigan my entire life. This bugs me because there are dangerous cities in EVERY state not just Michigan. Yes, Detroit and Flint are places to avoid but that does not mean there aren't places in every state that you have to avoid. - emily3232

A guy who was in a corner of his moms basement, hates sauerkraut. So he moves to Albuquerque, his plane crashes and he drags himself the hotel, rents a hotel room, then has a guy that looks like Mike Score from Flock Of Seagulls break into the apartment, steal his favorite snorkel, then they have a little sing off with the operator. He then vowed to get his snorkel back, after that he is trying to get a doughnut and instead gets a box of face eating weasels, witch lead him to find his girl friend and future waifu, who then goes and buys a house, has two kids, then breaks up with him. He then gets a job and puts out a fire with his face, every one is jealous and he ends up cutting a guys arms and legs off, and in the end all this
Cause he hates sauerkraut

California doesn't deserve this spot. Arkansas does. - JackLawler

Oakland is expecially dangerous.
