    2. Camden, N.J.
    3. Detroit
    4. Flint, Mich.
    5. Oakland, Calif.

    I'm kind of surprised not to see Chicago, Philadelphia, and NYC on this list.

    I heard that when the Raiders are at away games, Oakland falls off the list.

    I was stationed at the Marine Barracks at NAS Alameda in the late 70s. I lived in Oakland. That billing for Oakland near the top of that list is justified

    I grew up in the Bay Area. Oakland can be a rough place. Take a wrong turn and you better not get out of your car.

    I'm 20 miles from Flint and 40 miles from Detroit. Both are $hitholes. Guess what is the common trait of all of the cities on the list? And don't call me a racist!!!

    There's a difference between associations and causations.
    Nothing on that sort of scale is simple in its explanations.
