DETROIT (WXYZ) - It was a deadly night in the city of Detroit. From 6:00 am Friday, August 12th to 6:00 am Saturday, August 13th, a total of fifteen people were shot in the city. Six of those victims died at a total of 9 separate shooting scenes.

Mayor Dave Bing's office released the following statement:

"Reducing violent crime is our number one priority. Chief Godbee and the men and women of the Detroit Police Department are working around the clock to bring these criminals to justice. Our community must continue to work with us to stop this kind of violence. Every resident deserves to be safe and feel safe in their neighborhood."

This isn't one shooting. It's nine of them. Just another day in Detroit City, ranked number one by percentage by number of democrats.

I wouldn't expect anything less from the city that gave us all John Conyers, Kwame Kilpatrick, Carolyn Kilpatrick, Barbara Rose Collins, Coleman Young, and the Detroit School Boards.

The democrat politicians are demanding that we surrender and retreat from Detroit because it’s become a quagmire!

HEY CALYPSO LOUIS, some of your people didn’t make your march in Harlem, they had previous killings to do.

Nothing new here.

Not just Democrats, black Democrats. Wherever there is a high concentration of blacks, there is a high concentration of crimes.

I wonder how many of the 9 killed had as a last thought, I wish I had a gun.
I wonder how many of the 9 killers had purchased the gun legally.
I wonder how long it’s going to be before the country gets it. It’s not the guns that kill, it’s the demonic, idiotic social atmosphere that is being created with the entitlement attitude, combined with drugs that kill.
By the way Darren, were any of the dead whites?

They didn't say, but it's the city of Detroit. It doesn't even have to be said here. Shooters were very likely black. Victims were very likely black. Small chance it was Mexican if it was in Southwest. The only white population anymore are elderly, some Downtown hipsters, some Romanians near Dearborn (maybe), and what's left of the Warrendale/Parkland city workers that didn't leave.

Remember ‘Snake Pliskin’ in Escape from New York, and then Escape from LA?

Sounds like it is time to wall off Detroit and make movies the reality.

Detroit was the City of the Future in Democratic Party promotions. They don't talk about it that way now do they? They own the total failure, just like Oakland, CA and Tacoma, Wa.

I worked in the N. Shepherd and 610 area where much of those murders took place back then. At times is was like a war zone. I actually thought the number was a bit higher that that though. I do remember that we had the distinction at the time of being the murder capital of the nation during those murderous years.

The press must be incredibly frustrated they can’t simply point the finger at Bush anymore. And even though it was all unsubstantiated, the readers/viewers always bought it!

Journalism was so easy then, eh?

And still is in certain quarters although the murder numbers are down significantly from those other high numbers of years gone by. I was born and raised in that town and have some fond memories of that town. I no longer recognize it nor no longer call it home. Got out about 10 years ago and dread having to drive into that growing cess pool to go see my docs at the Houston VA hospital on occasion.

90 years ago Detroit was one of the wealthiest cities in the world. Three generations later, and one term of LBJ, and viola, something great has vanished into thin air.

After growing up in Houston before people mellowed, it was weird to live in San Diego and see people use a chalk board to keep track of who’s turn it was to challenge at the pool table, rather than killing each other for it, or at least fist fighting for the next spot. People didn’t jump you in the bathrooms in San Diego, people didn’t wait to shoot you as you were leaving the bar. I only had to take a knife away from one guy here, and I have never even seen a gun pulled in a bar here in San Diego, much less shootings and killings.

Between people moving out and people getting killed, Detroit will be empty farmland and forest in a few years.

Yet will still manage to have thousands upon thousands of city employees serving virtually no one.

Liberals have absolutely destroyed Detroit, yet the (mostly black) population will dutifully vote Democratic till the last resident turns out the lights.

The saddest TV viewing ever are the Detroit episodes of A&E’s The First 48. I think of all the Detroit murders on that series, maybe one was solved.

Not to hijack the thread, but I am watching The First 48 S11E10 (trial of the Lester street killer) right now. It is absolutely riveting. Try and get a hold of it.

Out of 100 or so murders in Columbus every year, 85% of the victims and the killers are black (in a city with a 24% black population.) And 80% of those murders occur within a 30 square block area.

As one of the local papers pointed out, if one is not involved in some nefarious activity, the odds of being shot are inconsequential.

Each dead gang banger adds value to the city, by decreasing non-value added inhabitants. Let them kill each other off.

Thats because people there dont talk to “5-O”. Snitches get stitches dont you know.
They would wallow in their own filth and blood than rat out a “Bro”.
They complain when the police pull over and question blacks because they say it is “profiling” then they have the Gall to complain that the police aint doing enough to protect them.
Nuke it from orbit, its the only way to be sure.
