    Camden, N.J., Ranked Most-Dangerous, Newton Ranked Safest City

    Camden, N.J., Ranked Most-Dangerous City

    CAMDEN, N.J. -- For the second year in a row, this destitute city has been named the nation's most dangerous, according to a company's annual ranking based on crime statistics.

    Last year, the distinction seemed to hurt city boosters' feelings more than it harmed revitalization efforts. This time, city leaders are offended by the ranking, calling it unfair.

    "We're doing so many nice things now. It's unfortunate that somebody always wants to bad-mouth Camden," Mayor Gwendolyn Faison said.

    The city took the top spot last year from Detroit, which remained No. 2 in the most dangerous city rankings, to be released Monday by Morgan Quitno Press. The Lawrence, Kan.-based company publishes "City Crime Rankings," an annual reference book.

    Newton named safest city for low crime rate

    Newton named safest city for low crime rate
    (Newton, MASS - AP) — Newton has been declared the nation's safest city — again.

    Low crime rates and no murders earned the Boston suburb the title for the second year in a row and the third time overall. The Garden City also won in 1999.

    The list is compiled by Kansas-based Morgan Quitno Press and based on crime statistics provided to the FBI in six categories including murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and car theft.

    In this year's survey, 369 cities with populations of more than 75,000 were considered.

    Warwick, Rhode Island, at Number 16, was the only other New England city in the top 20 safe cities
