Here Are The 10 Most Dangerous Places In South Carolina After Dark
There’s an old cliché: “never judge a book by its cover.” It’s true. It’s always better to get the facts first. Ever wonder about the actual violent crime statistics of those seemingly questionable neighborhoods in your city, or a neighboring city? Neighborhood Scout uses actual violent crime statistics from the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department and interprets them applying their own algorithm to each city. Furthermore, the service breaks down those stats by neighborhood. Using this information, we’ve plucked out the absolute worst neighborhoods to be in after dark in the Palmetto State. These are 10 dangerous places in South Carolina that you won’t want to be caught outside after dark!
This data is based solely on information from Neighborhood Scout. You can learn more about their evaluation methods here. Here are the 10 cities with the worst neighborhoods for violent crime.
