Detroit Loses Title, Gladly

Detroit has lost the title "Most Dangerous City".

For nine years now, the Kansas City, Kansas based research and publishing company Morgan Quitno has been ranking American cities based on an analysis of FBI crime figures. Detroit has been at the top of the list for the past three years.

The new city at the top of the list is St. Louis, Missouri. However, Detroit didn't escape the list. The Motor City is third after Atlanta in second place.

According to the Mogan Quitno survey, Amherst, New York is the nation's safest city.
