These Are America's Most Dangerous Cities

Given that 2016 was the worst year for homicides in nearly two decades in Chicago, it comes as little surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the most violent places in the United States.

Last year, there were 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims with an average of 12 people shot every single day.

In fact, the Windy City experienced more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined last year with the number of homicides there since 2001 eclipsing U.S. war dead in Iraq and Afghanistan by late November.
However, as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, even though it had more murders than any other U.S. city last year, is Chicago's violent reputation entirely justified?

Out of the 19 listed, only 2 are Republicans. Miami and Tulsa. See a common issue with Dem run cities?

I'd be very interested to know how some small towns stack up statistically against these big cities. Since the numbers are based on homicides per 100,000. Lets see how Salisbury stacks up based on murders per lets say 35,ooo. Where could I find these numbers? Joe any idea?
