Once again, we're on the list of most dangerous cities in America, this time at number 3.

Quote:
3. St. Louis, Mo.
Violent crimes per 1,000: 18.6
Population: 320,454
2011 murders: 113
Median income: $32,688
Unemployment rate: 11.7%

Although the total number of murders in the city has decreased by 31 since 2010, crime in St. Louis did not improve overall last year. Violent crime rates in St. Louis have risen dramatically, from 17.5 to 18.6 cases per 1,000 people. And the city’s murder rate is still the fourth highest in the nation, its robbery rate is the fifth highest in the nation and its aggravated assault rate is third highest in the nation. Despite these troubling facts, the St. Louis Police Department recently faced potentially drastic budget cuts that may require the elimination of 100 street-patrolling officer positions through attrition.
And of course, I grew up in and still live in the most dangerous section of St Louis - north county.

Of course, you know we had our front storm door busted up in an apparent break in maybe a week or two ago, but night before last, we were awakened again by one of our dogs at 2:26AM and actually heard someone at our home. Didn't find anything, so we're guessing the dogs scared them off. Last spring, I put some deer horns on my SUV and someone came in my driveway and knocked them off.

PS: I think every mailbox on our street has been knocked down 3 or 4 times. Our neighbors is leaning 45 degrees right now, and it's made out of a muffler pipe.

What a wonderful place to live! I am packing bags and moving this weekend.

I guess you just don't live in St Louis without large and attack-able dogs, do you?

The police officer investigating our broken door said in the ten+ years he's been on patrol here, he's responded to hundreds of break ins, but none (zero) where the owners had mid sized to large dogs inside their homes. Having a guard dog outside didn't help.

Of course, I chain and padlock my gates and have chimes hanging from the doors. I do have security cameras that I need to install.

And yes, Conor, making number 3 on the list made headline news here, but not in a good way.

And of course, the story says nothing about the thousands (yes, thousands) of car windows that have been broken here in the past couple of years, in parking lots and residential areas all over the city and county.
