Tulsa police are disagreeing with a neighborhood being singled out as one of America’s most dangerous.

The website, neighborhoodscout.com declared the area bordered by Peoria, Apache and Highway 75 as a ‘danger zone.’ The website claims 1 in 15 people have a chance of becoming a violent crime victim in that area.

The website claims they based that on statistics from the FBI and US Justice Department, but Tulsa Police tell FOX23 their data does not match that and they found crime in that area is down 10%.
