I'd say Crawford. The sick, old and children were kicked out of Crawford due to their "survival of the fittest" get-go. If that wasn't bad enough, Crawford also refused to give meds to residents who were on the verge of death or seriously ill. Hence, Molly had to exchange sex for drugs to help her diabetic sister. Supplies were used very sparingly according to the numerous signs and symbols around the school. Looters would be shot on the spot, and the residents had to "make the most they could out of their rations."
The St. Johns ate people before and after the apocalypse. The entirety of Lee and co.'s visit to the dairy was set on the intent that they would eventually be killed off, or eaten. Andy went so far as to try to kill Lee and Mark with the electric fence when they were "securing" the perimeter. These people went pretty far to survive.
Lastly, we come to the bandits. Riddled up on meth, these guys had a deal going with the St. Johns for food. At that point, I thought that these guys were just trying to survive. At the end of episode 2, it was sickening to learn that they had raped their co-worker Jolene, and likely her daughter Danielle, too. At that point, I thought that the bandits mentality had gone downhill at the point of not getting any food. When abducting the motor inn, surprisingly, the leader gives Lee and co. a chance to comply with their demands before Lilly pulls off her trigger. The bandits could have actually worked something out with Lee and the group, like civilized people.
Crawford->Bandits->St.Johns stand on my list at inhumanity. Crawford was the most inhumane group in season 1.

How is Crawford any better then the St. John's? Crawford killed and hung the dead as warnings. Molly even said the children, the sick, and the old were all exiled and killed.
St. John's never took pleasure in killing and eating people. (Danny the exception)

If only Ben were his own group, then it would have saved Lee, Kenny, and Clem a lot of heart break :P

On topic, I pick Crawford. The bandits were bad, but they were just that: Bandits. The St. Johns are cannibals, which is pretty horrific, and they get second on my list, but Crawford, in my opinion, is the worst.
Crawford actively began exiling and executing its own members at some point in order to simply "preserve their resources" or some bullshit. It's never outright stated, to my knowledge, but I always picture them shooting Vernon's friends (the five of his group that Crawford captured before they found the morgue), which they do because they USED to be sick. I wouldn't be surprised if both Molly and Vernon knew some of the walkers we saw that comprised the barricade by the river.
In addition to that, they actually send parents and their children out into a zombie infested city, which is certain death. Shooting them would be more humane, actually, since they wouldn't have to endure the pain of being eaten alive, or starving to death out in an apocalyptic wasteland. The leaders of Crawford were willing to get rid of anyone that they deemed a detriment to the survival of their dictatorship. Eventually, they may have just decided to begin getting rid of people that they didn't like, if they hadn't reached that point already by the time Anna Correa went postal.
So, in the end, the Bandits, rapist monsters and murderers, at least stuck together for the most part (emphasis on "the most part"), and the St. Johns always looked out for each other, despite being cannibalistic killers who traded human meat for supplies. Crawford was completely and utterly willing to get rid of anyone in their own community that didn't meet their vision of an ideal survivor, or their "master race" as Vernon put it. Fuck them.

And, in the unused lines, Ben and Travis may have been forced to watch as the bandits assaulted the women in their group. And Jolene's daughter even.

I dunno, I think this may be getting close to a WORSE love story than Twilight.
But somehow, it's STILL a better love story than Twilight.
