California's 10 Most Dangerous Cities

Contrary to local things I've read about Eureka being in the top ten of California's most dangerous cities this list doesn't include any Humboldt towns or cities.

Addendum: This different list shows Eureka as number 2.

Eureka had the highest property crimes. What will help? Get tough on criminals. When a county has a reputation for strict enforcement of laws, the criminals take note.🇺🇸

A similar comment was made on my Nextdoor Neighborhood e-mail list. I had to respond that criminals don't care about what sort of punishment they'll get when they commit a crime. They're not going to steal one thing as opposed to another because punishment for stealing that other thing is less severe than the one thing.

Seems to me they're more concerned about getting caught, regardless of penalties, at least at the time they decide to commit a crime.

Williamson is the name of my County. It's a well known fact around here that criminals avoid this county because it enforces the law.
