    NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans ranks as the most violent U.S. city, with more than 19,000 reported crimes and 208 murders in 2007, according to a study released Monday.

    The study published by CQ Press, the book publishing arm of Congressional Quarterly, examined six categories — homicide, rape, burglary, robbery, aggravated assault and motor vehicle theft.

    The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents that reported crime data to the FBI in those crime categories for 2007.

    "Based on a per capita basis, New Orleans has the No. 1 crime ranking using FBI statistics," said CQ spokesman Ben Krasney.

    New Orleans is a ghetto that throws cool drunken parties once in awhile.

    wow, I am kind of surprised by this.

    THe way the city came together and people cooperated after Katrina was awe inspiring.

    I mean, if shooting at choppers and taking flat screens in 12 feet of water doesn't define safe city, then perhaps we are setting the bar a little too high.

    The Mexicans who are now rebuilding New Orelans aren't making things much safer it seems.
