A recent report shows that Baltimore is one of the few U.S. cities to rank in a list of the worst cities in the world for violence.
The report on Business Insider says Baltimore is number 36, with about 38 homicides per every 100,000 residents.
It is one of a handful of U.S. cities on the list, which also includes St. Louis at No. 45, New Orleans at No. 26, and Detroit at No. 24.
Now for my question. St. Louis, New Orleans, Detroit and Baltimore are almost exclusively democratic cities. You can't find a republican there with a search warrant and Dog the Bounty Hunter.
So are these cities violent because they're democratic or are they democratic because they're so violent?
