New Haven is arguably the most dangerous city in Connecticut, the only cities possibly as risky being Bridgeport and Hartford. By the end of this debate, I intend to prove that it is more dangerous than Flint, Michigan.

1) Despite having a population of under 200,000 people, New Haven has frequently been among the top ten most dangerous cities in America.

2) New Haven is home to a wide range of gangs, including the Mafia.

3) Crime rates in New Haven vary wildly between neighborhoods. A stranger to the area could easily wander from a completely safe neighborhood into a completely dangerous one without realizing, making it hard to know which areas to avoid.

4) Crime in Connecticut cities has been growin since the 1990s, so much that the three largest cities in Connecticut, Bridgeport, New Haven, and Hartford, all frequently make the top 25 most dangerous cities in the country.

How funny. Me and my family just went on a trip to Hartford, CT and while we were there, we did some research and we couldn't believe that the crime rate there was so high.
