Alex I's Profile
|Display Name:||Alex I|
Quick clarification: the crime ranking has nothing to do with East St. Louis (which is in Illinois). The City of St. Louis ranks high in crime because the boundary of the city hasn't changed since the 1870's. Crime stats for "St. Louis" look only at the inner city. In other metros such as Louisville, Indianapolis and others, the city has expanded its boundaries to incorporate more land and other municipalities. In St. Louis, this would be the equivalent of adding University City, Clayton, Webster Groves and many other suburbs into the crime stats. As a metro area, St. Louis ranked as the 103rd most dangerous in 2010.
