The megacities of our day include millions of people, not every of them have a good environment, then there is a problem with living space, the social situation is difficult, and to get to work – problem. However, if to the office to get at least 2 hours, and the nearest site there are no corresponding running tracks or parks, do not be upset, because the world is not only inconvenient places to live, but also life-threatening. Today consider the most criminal city in the world where can’t exist a normal life.
Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Ciudad Juarez Metropolitan area in Mexico, is located on the coast of the Rio Grande, forms exactly at this point a natural limit to the territory of the United States and Mexico. On the opposite side of the coast is a large town USA – El Paso, juárez is together with this town agglomeration boundary type. Juarez in the border area has become a strategic transportation hub, and represents one of the main points of logistics between the United States and Mexico.
Do not stop the drug cartels and the huge number of murders «glorified» in this city. Every year there is at least 3 thousand murders each day there are about 7-8 such events. The harsh reality for this city is a constant confrontation between criminal gangs and police, the heads of the people that are on city streets in broad daylight, and the daily increase in freshly dug graves in the city cemeteries.
Here you can see all over the posts of special forces and police outposts, and the siren did not cease, day or night. Corruption has firmly taken root in the system of the protection order, the daily number of killings and theft increases.
Most of the residents of Ciudad juárez have some connection with the processes of crime in the city, as it is a way of life allows you to bring the standard of living they need normal. During the day it is difficult to see people, almost all doors and Windows remain closed. The number of population is equal to 1.3 million people, but on the streets it is hardly possible to see at least one pedestrian.
Caracas is the main city of Venezuela. The population exceeds 3 million people, Venezuela is among the richest resources of the countries of the world, sitting at the 3rd place in terms of export of crude oil. However, the population of this state is almost never lived securely as a small group of oligarchs and a huge corruption in the country does not allow oil revenue to reach ordinary people.
The ex-President of the Republic, Hugo Chavez often mentioned in their speeches that the level of crime near Caracas are similar to the 5th column of American Yankees. Support of crime have the local rich and wealthy gangsters of Colombia. However, the situation is not simple. The President also relied on a criminal gang. In 2002, the military decided to remove him from office and arrest. Criminal groups in poor areas were the stronghold of the President. They took up arms, surrounded the coup and forced them to release Chavez.
History knows many cases when the crime supported the coups. Created by Hugo Chavez’s social reforms in the Republic did not escape the same trend. As a result, Caracas has become the most criminal and dangerous city in the world in 2008. Here on 100 thousand population was 130 killed, according to unofficial statistics, their number reached 160. The number of serious crimes increased in comparison with 1998 almost 68 percent.
Looting on the streets have become commonplace. Police recommend not to leave the house after 6 PM, the tourist group also warned that if they come up and tell you to give the camera, it is necessary to fulfill the requirement. Drug trafficking became a routine. Venezuela became a transit point between the US and Colombia. Heroin to get in Caracas can even child.
San Pedro Sula
San Pedro is located 60 kilometers from the coast of the Caribbean sea, it is located in the valley of Sula. The population of San Pedro is equal to 800 thousand people. The General plan is the standard, there is a town square, Park area and a big Cathedral, there is a wide variety of residential quarters, museums and hotels. Immediately behind the town are tropical and all colors of beautiful nature. It may seem to standards that can attract in a city of foreigners, especially extreme tourists?
The San Pedro has long been topping the list of most criminal cities in the world. Do you know why? Every year there are 100 thousand of population is 169 killings. This figure is huge even for Honduras, in other cities less than 20 times. Also because this city has become one of the largest centers of a transfer of drugs from South America into the United States. Perhaps the point is that weapons here can be owned quite legally, you can buy a whole Arsenal of weapons. The government does not wish to confront the world of crime (not surprising, given the level of corruption in this city). So, do not forget that more than 85% of crime in San Pedro were committed with firearms.
San Salvador, El Salvador
San Salvador is the capital of El Salvador, the city is not large, located in Central America. The population is about 570 thousand people. According to the data on 100 thousand population there is a 95 murders per year. According to the results of 2015 are facts more than 2,200 murders committed here. Statistics causes goosebumps.
Gangs MS-13 and Barrio take full responsibility for such statistics, it’s because they create tension in the village. San Salvador became the capital of violence, the population can at any moment die from shootings in the streets. I must say, these groups of gangsters have the same system as the Italian mafia or the Yakuza, home specialize in robbery and looting. Here you can not just Rob, but also to deprive of life.
It is the state capital of the same name, it has long been known for its rebellious disposition. In the 13th century, Guatemala had become the main bulwark of opposition to the colonizers from Spain. Behind them arrived the Mexicans to develop their impact as colonizers. However, this did not work: Mexico managed to take Guatemala for just one year.
Sorry, but the country was tormented not only by the encroachment of the colonizers. In 1826 there broke out civil strife, the city is also not indifferent. This war changed the local authority, took place the next reform, trade relations have experienced substantial growth. In 1839, when there was another confrontation, Guatemala became the main city of the state. However, squabbles affect the day today: the crime situation in the city remains tense. Police fails to bring the situation under control, Guatemala accounted for 41% of all murders in the country, which is 90 crimes per 100 thousand citizens.
The city was founded in 1536 in the Western part of Colombia. Colonizers from Spain, under the leadership of sebastián De Belalcázar was able to survive all the native Americans who lived in the valley of Cali.
Cali today is a metropolis of Colombia, its population is only less than Bogota and Medellin. The city is developing at a rapid pace, here are built and skyscrapers. The tallest building not only Cali, but all over Colombia are Cali tower. Given the spire of the antenna and the height of the building is 211 meters, which was the main attraction of the city.
However, the city is also known as a place of constant clashes of drug cartels, who divorced in large numbers due to the large number of raw materials for drugs. The division of gangsters lead to the fact that on 100 thousand population city has 80 murders.
