A new ranking says St. Louis is the third-most dangerous city in America and is number one in its population grouping. The rankings are compiled by Morgan Quitno Press of Lawrence, Kansas. Six FBI crime categories are used to make the ratings – murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and auto theft. The St. Louis Metropolitan area does not make the top 25, however. The company also lists the safest cities and metro areas. Jefferson City ranks as 23rd safest out of 330 metro areas scored. Kansas City and Springfield make none of the top 25 lists – for most dangerous or safest.
