In 1950 Phoenix was ranked 99th with 107,000 residents, now Phoenix has moved to number 5 bumping Philadelphia to number 6. Philadelphia, like other northern cities, lost manufacturing jobs and residents moved to the suburbs leaving behind poor and less educated residents. There were 406 murders in Philadelphia last year and over 200 murders this year. Lets hope the new mayor can develop a plan to get guns off the street and reduce the murder rate.
