What is Kansas City, Missouri's worst suburb?

Stand up and take a bow, Sugar Creek.

I have many friends that live in the Kansas City area and there's a good chance none of them have been mugged in Sugar Creek. Plus, there are lots of people there that share my love of the Kansas City Chiefs and my disdain for the Royals.
