FBI Statistcian

The articles on the safest cities point to misleading criteria used in determining who is really the "safest city". In fact, according to the FBI statistics, several OC cities are ranked as safer than Mission Vieo, Lake Forest and Irvine. It all depends on category.

For instance, according to the same FBI statisitics for cities with populations between 20,000 and 100,000, Rancho Santa Margarita ranks as the safest city in California, which obviously places them ahead of every city on the list in the articles. But they didn't make this list because their population is under 75,000. And if you go down further and include smaller cities under 20,000, then Laguna Woods by far out ranks everyone. There are several cities in Orange County alone that should have made the list, albeit for the population criteria excluding them.

It would be nice to see a study done that includes FBI statistics for all cities, and then rank everyone regardless of population.
