Will the Park City aim closer to higher this year ? Share your thoughts
A new study of local and national crime numbers produced this week ranks the Park City as one of the ten most dangerous cities in the country--but that ranking is lower than in previous studies and comes as other crime numbers show that the city is getting safer.
The Washington-based CQ Press has ranks Bridgeport as the ninth-most dangerous city with at least 75,000 residents, putting it between Newark, N.J. at No. 8 and Birmingham, Ala. at No. 10.
CQ Press said that it took the 2012 rates of murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft for each of the cities it studied and compared them to the national average to come up with a ranking.
Another outlet, Business Insider, put out a similar study last year that ranked Bridgeport as the 4th most dangerous city in the country. That study also used the 2012 crime numbers.
Bridgeport's crime numbers for 2013 show that major crimes were down last year, with most notable decrease being the number of homicides, which fell from 22 to 13.

I read this… someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe every single city on list has a long democrat legacy- including Birmingham, AL.

Not on the list was New Haven. I'm confused by that.

I agree with you, although they might be counting all crimes, not just murder. The cities you name are all democrat hell-holes. Boy does NJ have more than it's fair share! Giving teenage girls an apartment and money for making a very bad decision perpetuates multi-generational dysfunction. Blacks ought to despise democrats for doing this to them. But this is the engine which keeps democrats in power- it's a beast which both feeds on poverty and causes it.

and don't get me started on this incumbent administration, their naivety is unbearable to watch..........
