USA Today released a list of the most dangerous states in America, and you may be surprised what did and didn’t make the cut.
These five states have the highest rate of violent crime per 100,000 residents.
4. New Mexico
5. South Carolina
Tennessee is No. 1, largely in part because of Memphis, which has the fifth highest crime rate in the country.
A list of all the states was not put out, but Illinois was not in the top ten.
