It's not necessarily the biggest cities that have the highest crime rate. Covesmart.com had this to say regarding crime:

Every year, the FBI collects crime data from every state and county. To calculate the crime data, the FBI records the total number of crimes, divides the total crimes by the area’s population, and then multiplies it by 100,000. When the number is multiplied by 100,000, it creates a uniform number that can be compared to other city’s crime rates. Crime data should be recorded as “the number of crimes per 100,000 people.

Let's take a look at the cities in Michigan with the highest crime rates, thus making them the most dangerous cities in Michigan.
