Though Kennewick and Pasco were ranked the #20 and #18 most violent cities in our state three other Eastern Washington cities ranked even worse. Would you believe Walla Walla ranked #13? I never would have guessed. Maybe they are getting bad vibes from the penitentiary. The other two Eastern Washington cities making the top 20 list were Yakima at #5 and Spokane at #4. The most violent city in the state is Tacoma, with almost 3 times more violent crime per capita than Kennewick, followed by Lakewood and Burien at #2 and #3.
