11 California Cities Make ‘Most Dangerous In U.S.’ List 2021

Last week the Globe reported on the most dangerous cities in California. “Most interesting is the FBI graph below showing how crime in California had dropped, then began to rise again after 2014 – the year Proposition 47 was passed, and then Proposition 57 in 2016,” the Globe reported.

According to a January 2021 report by Roadsnacks.net, California’s crime numbers have also catapulted the state into the top 20 most dangerous states in America; and sadly, the state is home to nine-—yes, nine—of the most dangerous cities in the country.

Roadsnacks.net also reported on the top 100 most dangerous cities in the country — 11 of those cities are in California out of the 100, based on FBI statistics on Violent Crimes Per Capita, and Property Crimes Per Capita. There are a surprising number of San Francisco Bay Area cities on this list:

Ranked #5: Oakland, CA

#19: San Bernardino, CA

#21: Stockton, CA

#34: San Francisco, CA

#36: Vallejo, CA

#37: Richmond, CA

#64: Berkeley, CA

#65: Modesto, CA

#82: Bakersfield, CA

#87: Sacramento, CA

#98: Rialto, CA

Ahead of Oakland were St. Louis, MO, Springfield, MO, Memphis, TN, and Little Rock, AR.

In Sacramento, which ranked #87 out of 100 most dangerous cities in the U.S., the total crime rate is 3,809.2 per 100,000 people. That’s 53.80% higher than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 37.40% higher than the California total crime rate of 2,772.4 per 100,000 people, according to the most recent data from the FBI.

The Globe reported in April about the Sacramento Police Department’s Monthly Chief’s Report of the most recent statistics: shooting victims, shooting reports, firearms arrests and seized, and the like. The staggering number of victims shot in Sacramento increased by 333.33%.

The March 2021 report clearly shows violent crimes continue to rise, in comparison to this time last year:

2021 – Number of Victims Shot: 65 (333.33 % Increase)

2021 – Shooting Reports: 186 (121.4 % Increase)

Our officers continue to encounter and seize a lot of firearms:

2021 – Arrests for Possession of Firearms: 302 (86.4 % Increase)

2021 – Number of Reports with Firearm Seized: 309 (83.9 % Increase)

2021 – Total Number of Firearms Seized: 422 (61.1 % Increase)

Of disturbing interest is the category, “Assault and/or Resist a Police Officer. In just one month, March 2021, there were 53 assaults and/or resisting a police officer incidents assaults and/or resisting a police officer incidents.  In all of 2020, there were 199 assaults and/or resisting a police officer incidents. Year-to-date 2021 ending in March, there are already 169 assaults and/or resisting a police officer incidents.

This is the very incident that can and has lead to deadly consequences for both the police officers and the person they apprehended – and these are only increasing.

Here are a few other California cities’ reports:

Surprisingly, the total crime rate in Berkeley is 5,598.3 per 100,000 people, 126.04% higher than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 101.93% higher than the California total crime rate of 2,772.4 per 100,000 people, according to the most recent data from the FBI.

The total crime rate in Oakland is 7,692.4 per 100,000 people, 210.59% higher than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 177.46% higher than the California total crime rate of 2,772.4 per 100,000 people, according to the most recent data from the FBI.

In San Francisco, the total crime rate is 6,175.2 per 100,000 people, 149.33% higher than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 122.74% higher than the California total crime rate of 2,772.4 per 100,000 people, according to the most recent data from the FBI.

  1. Comrades
    These invasive pop up surveys are infuriating…..just like in old days, the Commissars used every,whatever, against the proletariat for your “social index”. Many long final train rides, many, many.

  2. How many crimes are either not reported or have their status downgraded by the cops (common practice)? I think things are FAR worse than the stats show.

    1. Police officers cannot down grade ANY crime committed. It is the prerogative of the DA’s alone.

      1. They do it all the time. Look it up on the web. All they have to do is be a little creative when they write the report. They can take a felony and make it a misdemeanor with a little imagination.

    2. So following your logic, this was happening in 2000 -2020 also. Common practice. Things were far worse than reported.

  3. Libby Schaff must be real proud making the top 5! Those community enforcement groups and social workers seem to be making a great impact for Oakland.

  4. “There are an UNsurprising number of San Francisco Bay Area cities on this list:…”

    There, I fixed it for ya….

    This is what happens when emotion-driven “progressives” are given the ability to make legislation…
    Basic safety and social cohesion goes right out the window as the darker side of human experience is allowed and encouraged to flourish, under the false promise of “tolerance” and “equity”….
    Pathetic….

  5. Another great article, Katy! I wonder why the mainstream media can’t put out factual articles like this. Oh, that’s right. It would make the Democrats look bad.

  6. As per roadsnacks, Texas has 11 dangerous cities. Florida just 10. TN and Ohio 6.

    The 10 most dangerous cities in order of “danger” are

    (1) St Louis MO
    (2) Springfield MO
    (3) Memphis TN
    (4) Little Rock, AR
    (5) Oakland CA
    (6) Wichita KS
    (7) New Orleans, LA
    (8) Chattanooga TN
    (9) North Charelston SC
    (10) Cleveland Ohio
    Chicago Illinois is #71 on the list.

    1. Blaming Democrats is the Only thing Repugs can think of. The Country always goes to Shit whenever a Repug is in the WH then it’s up to me Democrats like Presidents Obama and now Biden to do major Damage Control. So STFU

  7. Manipulation of crime stats goes way back. If you can remember when there were telephone booths with the hindged door. Well, when the pay phone was broken into (which happened quite a bit), the crime was burglary, as it was a structure. The police dept would reclass the crime to a misdemeanor theft, so the burglary stats wouldn’t be so high. That’s one of the reasons phone booths went away
