      Mick Cornett, mayor of Oklahoma City

      • Richard_Romano

        So? He’s one mayor. Who runs these cities by and large? As usual, some moron takes the exception and makes it the rule. GFY, Red.

        • Red

          I’m not the one going around claiming correlation is causation

      • Bob Frapples

        psst… all but one are democrat run cities, pass it on.

    This is what happens when you don’t maintain your lawn.

  • Eddie_Baby

    Are Detroit and East St. Louis this bad or are they spitting up neighborhoods that should be kept together?

    • videosavant

      I can only speak to ESL…they’re this bad.

    • Mike in Cincinnati

      The St. Louis Paper had a story years ago – In ESL, 1/3 of the city lots are vacant lots, 1/3 are abandoned houses, and 1/3 are occupied. No tax base in the city. Nothing but liquor stores and a few strip clubs near the interstate.

    $1.09 for a 25-ounce can of beer doesn’t help.

    • Don Carriker

      Risking your life to deliver that can of beer doesn’t help either.

  • Colin Campbell

    I can assure you that there are many, many more areas of cities which are just as bad as whats listed…Having traveled a lot for business, I could list dozens more. All within democratic cities, that’s for sure.

  • RippedTopShelf

    What attribute do these neighborhoods share that might explain the high incidence of violent crime?

    I’m totally stumped. Any ideas?

    • thumper79

      would reply, but you know the worst thing that you can call a white person is a RACIST! ask jackson, auntie maxine, al sharptone, obama,black lives matter, etc.!

      • RippedTopShelf

        Eeeeeeeeeek! Racist! Oh noes!

  • kentde

    where’s Oakland on this list?

  • Caddolakeguy

    I started in Law Enforcement in Louisiana in 1974. Desire St area in New Orleans was known to be crime infested back then. Evidently nobody cares.

  • Mike in Cincinnati

    City Center in ESL? I don’t see a Torino with no wheels.

  • phil

    And what do they all have in common?

  • Jimmy Rustled

    bet they are all white neighborhoods….anyone want to bet??? come on…
