One fact working in Clearlake’s favor is the city has only a handful of murders compared to the other cities on this list. So, with only a couple of murders how is Clearlake on the list? Let’s just say that the extremely high number of other violent crimes supercede the murder rates. Most of these violent crimes are assaults and rapes.
The city is ranked on the FBI’s report as the 10th most violent city in California, which as you can see is a state littered with bad cities. If this was the 10th most dangerous city in Iowa, it may not be such a bad thing, but here in California, this means you are playing with the big dogs; and those dogs bite.
