It’s a shame when you have to actually tell someone a city is not safe for visitors...

If you have to tell them, maybe they belong there...

So, the cops need to clean the place up - if they are not too busy chasing each other.

Just put an electrified barbed-wire fence around the place and airdrop food and ammo every couple of weeks.

“By denying police officers the appropriate manpower, there’s a manpower crisis right now, there’s 1,000 fewer police officers today than there was 10 years ago, yet the homicide rate is higher. There’s more crime now than before, so if anything you need more officers, not fewer officers,” he said.

Someone in Detroit did not get the memo....crime is in vogue now. Just ask Eric Holder.....

They need to install red light cameras, that’ll keep the city safe.

They just need to air-lift in some Obama Bath Salts into the city and the folks will clean up the streets themselves...and be well-fed while doing it!

I watched an episode of Hard Core Pawn one night and it is really sad that America is one election away from the permanent path to Detroit.

Cesspool. I met a rich-chick from Allen Park a long time ago at a national conference in Washington DC. She’s now a huge lib attorney and her father was a big time liberal judge hooked in with Carl Levin. They get what they deserve as far as I’m concerned.

By the way, she beats the stereotype that liberals women are all fugly. Smoking hot.

She’s just a small town girl, living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
He’s just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit

Cancer has a tendency to spread. Detroit is not the only spot in our nation where the cancer is entrenched.

It is pretty scary to drive from Canada into Detroit.... Detroit looks like the buttholio of Canada.

Why those people are ok with that I’ll never know.

“Officers are leaving simply because they can’t afford to stay in Detroit and work 12 hour shifts for what they are getting paid.”

Hmmmm...Isn’t this the city with a mean home price around 13K?
