The City of Richmond is conspicuously absent from this just published of the “Twelve Most Dangerous Cities in Northern California (https://www.californiacitynews.org/2016/11/new-website-ranks-12-most-dangerous-cities-northern-california.html?utm_source=California+City+News&utm_campaign=123d34bc99-City_29_Nov_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_093e2b3f3b-123d34bc99-125837933&mc_cid=123d34bc99&mc_eid=dc83b20c14).
Richmond used to regularly appear on lists of the ten most dangerous cities in America, but those days are behind us. Oakland took the No. 1 spot, followed by Stockton and Modesto. Merced and Vallejo rounded out the top five on Lilozada’s list. Santa Cruz came in at No. 6, followed by San Francisco; San Pablo; Sacramento; Madera; Antioch; and Salinas. Some of these cities are pretty cool places, but I am not upset about not sharing this honor.
