“Forbes” magazine just put out a list of America’s most dangerous cities, based on FBI statistics for four types of violent crimes: Murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault…and Lubbock is #6.

The Detroit metropolitan area was named the most dangerous in the U.S. in 2010, thanks to its really high murder rate.
