Mayors Call 'Dangerous Cities' List a Turkey
The list is made by comparing crime data across cities in the U.S.
"CQ Press said its crime rate rankings are based on six categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors said in a statement today that the list is 'a premeditated statistical mugging of America's cities.'
Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who chairs the U.S. Conference of Mayors, said, 'These ranking present a gross misuse of FBI data.'"
