Approximately all over the world we are facing a lot of security threats by different groups, sometimes these threats are by international terrorist groups and sometimes local criminals. In short, everywhere around the world we have danger, if a threat is by some external force like an international terrorist group then all of the intelligence and law enforcement agencies work together but the most dangerous situation when domestic violence, crimes and local criminals and their gangs get stronger. They harm the public and the state and it can be too much difficult for the police to target them in between the general public. Still we have such kind of states and cities which are badly occupied with such criminals, their gangs and crimes, they have the status of most dangerous cities in 2014. We have gather a list of top 10 dangerous cities in 2014 from all of these cities with respect to their crime and violence history and present crime rate and density.
10. Caracas, Venezuela
Caracas the center and capital city of Venezuela which is occupied by the street criminals and the drug dealing gangs and smugglers as well. The gang fights have made the miserable law and order situation in the city. Robbery, assault, kidnap, murder and rape are the common violent crimes in the city; this situation affects the tourism and has made the Caracas an undesirable city for them. Like the capital other cities of the Venezuela are facing the same situation of crime and are affected by the sub ordinate of drugs smugglers.
9. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
On the ninth number in our list we have Ciudad Juarez city of Mexico, it is one of the most violent and highly occupied city by the criminals and drug dealers. Although you find a lot of criminals and gangs around the state but in Ciudad Juarez there is a main control room of all these gang and drug dealers. If you have a look over the police performance then it is not satisfactory because of bribery which they get from the criminals. In other words we can say that the police in Ciudad Juarez are doing two jobs at a time one for the state and other for the criminals.
8. Distrito Central, Honduras
Distrito Central, Honduras is at the number eight in our list of top 10 dangerous cities in 2014, the crime and the criminals increased with a large number in the past few years and the main reason behind all these is the unemployment and no job opportunities. The city became hostage by the drug mafias and the street gangs, crimes like murder, robbery and smuggling are common. Police is almost failed to control the situation and implement the law.
7. Cape Town, South Africa
A beautiful city of South Africa which was a big attraction for the tourists at one time but in few past years it became a center of crime and gang wars. The main reason behind the unrest and violent situation is the poverty and social imbalance. Although the city is still beautiful and have a number of attractions for the tourists bur the violence ratio leads the tourists to avoid it. But if you have a plan to go there then you should study about the city more and try to make your trip secure by taking precautions. That’s why we have Cape Town, South Africa at the seventh position in our list.
6. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
At the number six we have a famous city of Brazil Rio de Janeiro which is facing a lot of security problems since last few years. Although the other cities of the state have more complicated situation but we have a focus on Rio de Janeiro because form a tourist point of view it has a lot of visiting spots. It is not recommended that a person should not go there but if you have a plan to go there then you should consider some of the basic precautions.
5. Acapulco, Mexico
We have another city of Mexico in our list at number five the Acapulco city, it has been and still a popular vacation point due to the luxurious and beautiful resorts and hotels. But, the emergence and hold of the drug gangs and the increasing street crimes have made it dangerous for the visitors and the residents as well. Street crimes like street robbery, assault, murder and gang wars are common in the streets and the city have one of the highest murder rates in the world. It is directed by all of the tourist companies to the people going to Acapulco, Mexico that they move in the resort’s holdings and do not try to move out at night especially in the city.
4. Baghdad, Iraq
An important city of a state which is in the unrest situation form several years but now the American militant forces are coming back from it. The war of several years has made the situation very critical and difficult for the residents of the city and state and nobody can think about visiting the state. Baghdad has a stream of violence by the terrorists and the other groups, bombing, firing and other violent actions are common there. That’s why we have it at the fourth position in our list.
3. Sana’a, Yemen
Sana’a, Yemen is facing some of the terrible situation of crime, unrest, terrorism and gang wars from a long spam of time. According to the analysts the major reason behind all of these issues are the political instability and the gradual emergence of violent groups. Although, United States and the Gulf allies are helping the state to settle up things and maintain the peace situation in the city but their efforts seems to be meaningless till today. But we all have a hope that one day this condition will over and all of the residents of Sana’a, Yemen have a relaxed and peaceful life style.
2. Abidjan, Lvory Coast
Abidjan, Lvory Coast is at the second position in the list of top 10 dangerous cities in 2014, although the city have recovered with a major problem and recently we witness the arrest of Laurent Gbagbo and the residents get a hope of a liberal and peaceful environment. But they still have a lot of challenges which are a barrier to the peace of the city; situation is still critical and unpredictable because of the pressure groups and gangs which are creating a fuss. It is expected that the year 2014 will be a hard year for the city.
1. San Pedro Sula, Honduras
At the top of the list we have San Pedro Sula, Honduras which I considered as the most dangerous city of the world for several years and all of the tourists and their guides avoid going there as well. The city have not so good business and social conditions due to bad gang wars, drug dealings, poor law and order situation and plenty of violent social and street crimes. The city has been in the list of top dangerous cities of the world.
