BATON ROUGE, La. (CQ PRESS) Baton Rouge has been named the 16th "Most Dangerous City" in the United States. That's according to CQ PRESS which looked at six types of crimes. New Orleans came in at #13.

St. Louis takes the top spot as America's most violent city. Police there were busy in 2009, with more than 2,070 crimes per 100-thousand residents. The ranking knocks last year's most dangerous city, Camden, New Jersey, to 2nd place.

Some criminologists question CQ's most recent list claiming their ranking methods are unfair.  Click here for complete list.
