2017’s Most Sinful Cities in America

From WalletHub, Nov 27, 2017

Las Vegas isn’t the only sinful place in America. In other cities, bad things happen and stay there, too. From beer-loving Milwaukee to hedonistic New Orleans, the U.S. is filled with people behaving badly. No place is innocent. We all have demons.

But at some point, we all have to pay for our sins. Gambling addiction, for instance, costs society an estimated $6 billion per year, mostly in criminal justice and health care. In 2015, global credit- and debit-card fraud took a toll of nearly $22 billion. And every year, smoking burns a $300 billion hole in Uncle Sam’s wallet.

Luckily for the saints among us, all American vices are not created, or distributed, equally. So in order to identify the darkest corners of America, WalletHub’s data crunchers compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 32 key indicators of evil deeds. Their data set ranges from violent crimes per capita to excessive drinking to potential cheaters. Read on to see the baddest of the bad cities, how we ranked them and expert recommendations for overcoming humanity’s devilish nature.
