  • Washington

With a rate of 453.6 robberies per 100,000 people, Washington manages to stay pretty high on the list of the most dangerous states in the U.S. But one thing is interesting to point out: Olympia, the capital of the state, doesn’t have a high property crime rate. Neither lives in Seattle. The thieves aren’t brave enough to “adventure” themselves in the big cities; they prefer smaller ones, and the most targeted ones are Tukwila and Spokane.

  • Alaska

Although Alaska is among the states with a small population (731,000), there are even more robberies here than in Washington, for example. Unfortunately, here, the citizens face around 487.2 robberies per 100,000 people, which is pretty high, I’d say! Sheesh, I wouldn’t like to live there, for sure.

The good thing is that the numbers dropped a bit in the past few years, maybe because of the pandemic, because everybody was forced to spend more time indoors, making it a bit harder to rob a house full of people.

  1. There is no such thing as a safe State anymore, be vigilant and wary and cautious on the neighborhood that you are in and don’t obviously go to unsafe and unfamiliar place’s specially @ night

  2. Fortunately, the state in which I live is not on your list. However, when I got to the last page, I was dumbstruck: I was BORN in New Mexico! I never lived there, though, because soon after I was born my parents moved to California! That said, this article was one of the most interesting ones I’ve seen online, well worth the short reading-time! Thank you!

  3. Is it a coincidence that arizona texas and new mexico are all border states, And nevada is pretty close. Just Asking.
