And Yet *Another* Unsettling Ranking For Our Fair City!



CNN Money rolled out another in a long line of successive disses on Cleveland in its recent Most Dangerous Cities roundup.

While we all collectively yawn, here are the deets:

Cleveland comes in at a hearty #4 on the list, beat out by the likes of Detroit, St, Louis and Oakland:

Burglaries were one of the biggest issues facing Cleveland residents in 2011, with the number of break-ins and thefts climbing by 8.6% from the previous year. That gave the city the second highest burglary rate in the country — next to Toledo, Ohio.

Street crimes — robberies and assaults — also continued to soar, with Cleveland second only to Oakland among the nation's 72 largest cities.

One area of improvement: The number of murders fell to 74, from 81 the year before.

Two years ago, USA Today's highly renowned analytics team pegged us at #10 on their own list.
