Joao Pessoa, Brazil
Out of the 10 Brazilian cities on this list, it is Joao Pessoa that is the most dangerous of them all. This city boasts a very sad 79 murders per 100,000 residents in the city, which is the fourth most in the world. This is just a small part of the reason this city makes the list, as there is so much crime here it’s almost impossible to tell that there are good people in the city. The drug problem is quite bad here, and that’s probably a leading cause of all the violence that goes on here.
