CBS News published the most recent list of the Top 25 Dangerous Cities in America. The list is compiled from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and reflects 2016, the most recent year of data available. While it lists the cities with the highest rates of violent crimes, one important piece of information is missing from the data. Who are the mayors of the most violent cities and to what political party they belong.
Also noteworthy is that 15 of the 25 most dangerous cities are in the Midwest.
