In late January, I tried to come up with a list of the nation’s “10 Most Dangerous Cities,” based on different lists I’d read over the past year or two, and my own knowledge base. I came up with 40, without even counting these two. Chester, Harrisburg: Way to represent!

Harrisburg, which is the state capital, has been celebrating ever since electing its historic first black and first female mayor, the racist, corrupt, crazy as a loon, Linda Thompson, in 2009. (It is Thompson herself who continually uses the term “historic” to describe her election.) Thompson won based on the city’s racist black majority voting for her, based purely on her race, and they have remained unwavering in their support of her.

Thompson’s racist supporters have gone so far as to not only constantly censor all negative facts from her Wikipedia entry, but they have even censored her Talk page, which is an extreme violation, even by Wikipedia’s pathetic standards.

Wikipedia and race—it’s an old story.

Thompson has been busy bankrupting the city ever since assuming office. Naturally, she expects someone else to pick up the tab for the city’s crime.

Except for the top six or so entries, the order in the following list is arbitrary. Indeed, the list itself is arbitrary, in that the compilers of the “10 Most Dangerous Cities” lists used a good deal of caprice. America today has hundreds of diversitopian hellholes on a par with Springfield (MA or IL, take your pick), Lakewood, N.J., St. Petersburg, Lansing, MI, or Stockton, CA. Denizens of these locations will cry that they have suffered from “racism” and “neglect,” but in fact while they are all relentless tax-eaters, they are all net producers of murderous racism, and have soaked up trillions of dollars from the white tax base over the past 50 years. Indeed, it is their concomitant rise as centers of black and/or Hispanic racism, ability to run whites out of town, terrorize those who remained (what I call Left Behind Syndrome), and suck the white state and federal tax base dry, which made them what they are today. In many of these cities, the police are themselves merely instances of organized crime.

Harrisburg is the 20th most dangerous city in the United States, according to a website that compiles crime, schools and real estate data.

With about 15 violent crimes per 1,000 residents, Harrisburg is about five times more dangerous than Philadelphia, according to

By comparison, Philadelphia was ranked 52 on the site's list of 100 most dangerous cities. Chester was ranked second.

People have a 1:62 chance of being a victim of violent crime in Harrisburg, compared with a 1:273 chance elsewhere in the state.

The website, run by Worcester, Mass.-based Location, Inc., used 2010 crime data from the FBI. The 2011 data will not be available until August.

There's been four homicides in Harrisburg -- a city of about 49,000 residents -- this year and a surge of muggings, especially in uptown.

In response, Mayor Linda Thompson has asked county officials and the district attorney's office for $500,000 to hire more police officers. District Attorney Ed Marsico pledged $25,000 for police overtime and said he will begin the process of installing cameras in high-crime areas throughout the city.
