St. Louis has lost a distinction it didn’t want to have. It’s no longer considered the nation’s most dangerous city. C-Q Press, an arm of Congressional Quarterly uses FBI figures to rate 378 cities. Detroit takes over the top spot from St. Louis. Kansas City comes in at number 18.
The list of dangerous cities had been published by Morgan Quitno Press, a Kansas company that publishes various ratings in various categories until the company was purchased by Congressional Quarterly.
