LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — San Bernardino has won the ignominious distinction of being named California’s most dangerous city, according to recent report.
The report, released by criminal defense attorney Graham Donath, was based on FBI data that takes into account crime rates, police presence, and other community factors including poverty and education rates.
Stockton was declared the state’s second most dangerous city, with Modesto placing third. Two other cities commonly associated with crime — Oakland and Inglewood — placed sixth and tenth, respectively. Los Angeles ranked nineteenth.
The study only takes into account cities with a population of 100,000 or more people.
