Cleveland, Ohio is ranked the #5 Most Dangerous City in America this year after its previous ranking at #8. It is one of the few cities that experienced an increase in violent crime last year. Fueled largely by increases in the number of robberies and aggravated assaults, Cleveland’s violent crime rate increased by nearly seven percent. The number of murders did manage to decrease from 84 in 2012 to 55 in 2013; however, that trend may be reversing itself, as the city is poised for an increase.
