We’re only three months in to 2018 but we are once again being reminded of the increase in violence that we saw in last year in 2017. Earlier this week, the World’s 50 most dangerous cities were revealed and I bet you wondering if Indianapolis or any city in the state of Indiana made this list?

Well, the answer is no. Indianapolis did not make the cut, and neither did any other other cities in the state of the Indiana, which is a good thing.

However, you may be surprised to learn that only four United State cities actually made an appearance on the list and those four US cities were  St Louis, Baltimore New Orleans and Detroit.

According to Mirror.co.uk, when it comes to St Louis, they came in at number 13, having seen a spike in crime and deadly shootings. Baltimore was ranked 21st most dangerous city after a spike in violent crime, while New Orleans was placed at number 41 and Detroit took the 42nd spot.

Believe it or not, according to Mirror.co.uk, out of the 50 cities listed, 42 were in Central or South America, with Brazil making by far the most appearances followed by Mexico and Venezuela.
