10 Towns In Oklahoma That Made Santa’s Naughty List This Year
Christmas is right around the corner and Santa will be making his way through the Sooner State; however, don’t get too excited just yet. Several towns across the state have been misbehaving and made Santa’s naughty list this year. Take a look and see if your town made the dreaded naughty list.
Ranked as one of the top 10 Most Dangerous Cities For Women In The U.S., Lawton ranks high in violent crimes and forcible rapes.
Ranked as one of the most dangerous cities in America, Ardmore makes the naughty list for high numbers in violent crimes and property crimes. There's always a chance next year, Ardmore!
Tulsa takes the title for drunkest city and highest divorce rates in the state. And if that's not bad enough, it was also ranked as the most dangerous city in America by mylife.com.
4. Oklahoma City
As the largest city in the state, Oklahoma City has a high crime rate per capita. The city even ranked as the 2nd most dangerous city in America in an online study.
The little town of Skiatook is known for its beautiful lake - Lake Skiatook - in northeastern Oklahoma. But this cozy little place isn't so innocent. It made the naughty list this year due to its high crime rates, high unemployment and low education rates.
6. Midwest City
The most dangerous suburb in Oklahoma and the fourth most dangerous in the country is Midwest City, according to Movoto Real Estate Blog. Their data reports 1 in 17 people will be a victim of a crime.
7. Broken Bow
Although this town is full of charm and character (not to mention one of the most beautiful places in the state), Broken Bow didn't rank well in 2016 for robberies. A large population lives well below the poverty line, making it a hotbed for robberies, according to Roadsack.com.
Seminole's numbers in unemployment, high crime, low wages, and vacant houses make this little town one of the worst places to live in Oklahoma.
Muskogee made the naughty list for its high crime rates. There is a 1 in 22 chance of being a victim of crime in Muskogee.
Okmulgee isn't going to be too happy this year watching Santa pass over the town. Maybe next year they can get their unemployment and crime rates lower and make it on the nice list for 2017.
