Louisiana ranks number two on the CQ Press "Most Dangerous State Award" list. It's the 15th annual list of the most dangerous states based on six crime categories: murder, rape, aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, and car theft.

The award for the most dangerous state went to Nevada this year.

Louisiana jumped eight spots from last year's ranking to number two. The state had the highest murder rate in the report.

Twice as big as Tx and only 600K population 1/3 of which lives in Anchorage. They probably never bump into each other.

We're number 1!!!

Seriously, it must be Vegas, because there isn't really much major crime around here. Meth use and DUI's aplenty, but not much of the serious stuff.
