Power of Three: Worst cities in the USA

Public domain image
This is a picture of Detroit, which made it on the top 3 worst list

The USA has a population of about 332 million people. Now see, in the USA you could either live in a small town or a big city. Some towns/cities can better than others.

1. Memphis. Even though Memphis has some looks to it, the city isn’t good. With the population being around 700,000, you have a 1 in 12 chance of being a victim. Memphis is the most dangerous on the list by far. Memphis is considered an affordable and good-looking place to live, but obviously a dangerous place to live. Memphis has high unemployment rates that will most likely keep growing. Memphis really only has one professional sport, which is Basketball (Grizzlies). The Grizzlies have had some ups and downs since 2000, but are now in what people call “The Ja Morant era”.

2. Detroit. Detroit has some good looks to it, but the crime rate is not good. You have a 1 in 43 chance of becoming a victim, with the population being 630,000. People have voted Detroit the worst city over and over again for many reasons like the bad schools, bad economy, bad taxation, traffic, horrible city government, and average sports teams. Detroit’s sports teams are The Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, Detroit Pistons, and The Detroit Red Wings. The Lions have had a good season so far, but their past has not been good. Detroit have spans of greatness, and spans of dreadfulness. The Pistons have made playoffs 41 out the 75 seasons. The Red Wings are overall a decent team.

3.Cleveland. With a population of 370,000 you have a 1 in 58 chance of becoming a crime victim. Even though Cleveland looks good, it has high unemployment rate, dismal weather, hefty taxes, corruption and mediocre sports teams. Cleveland’s professional sports teams are The Cleveland Browns, Cleveland guardians, and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cleveland Browns have posted only 3 winning seasons since 1999, which is not good. The Guardians have had some bad and good times throughout the years. The Cleveland Cavs have had good teams and seasons recently, so there’s nothing to complain about on the basketball side.
