Beaumont was ranked the third most dangerous city in the state of Texas by a study that was done by a Houston law firm.
The law firm compiled data that ranked the ten most dangerous cities in Texas. Beaumont was ranked third most dangerous, ahead of larger cities such as Houston and Dallas.
Alberta Brown, a 60 year resident of Beaumont is heartbroken to see crime in her hometown day after day.
“It’s just awful because that shouldn’t be, it shouldn’t be, it’s just too much killing and too much going on here and we don’t understand what’s going on” states Brown.
The Houston-based law firm compiled data from the FBI’s uniform crime reporting program, compiling data from cities with populations only above one hundred thousand people.
