Vacant Detroit becomes dumping ground for the dead
AP ^ | 08/02/12 | Corey Williams

Posted on 08/03/2012 7:48:38 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

DETROIT (AP) -- Abandoned and neglected parts of Detroit are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the bodies of murder victims. And authorities acknowledge there's little they can do. At least a dozen bodies have turned up in 12 months, many of them purposely hidden or discarded in alleys, fields and vacant houses or garages. Seven of the dead are believed to have been slain outside Detroit and then dumped within the city.

If the federal government wants to get involved in every aspect of our well being why in hell is Detroit not being bulldozed?

Much of Detroit HAS been bulldozed.

And most of what's left should be.

Yet another example of the end result of the Welfare State. A city that literally is being bulldozed with the remaining buildings being used as dumping grounds for murders or other crimes. Its a complete, total breakdown of law and order and society. It is the end result of letting people sit on their asses with their hands out, collecting a check to simply exist. Society breaks down and gets bulldozed, crime becomes the norm. No one feels any need to do something about it other than whine and cry that someone ELSE should do something about it and hand them more money.

There is a photographer on Instagram who gets into the roughest parts of Detroit and takes photos. The city is becoming gritty “country.”. It’s ugly and somehow beautiful the way nature is taking back the city men abandoned. Above all, it’s shocking tht this is part of America.

If you are on Instagram, his name is TonyDetroit. Worth a look. His photos are amazing. He says “there are only 6000 people in downtown Detroit and I am one of them.”

Perhaps Detroit can work out a deal with Chicago. I hear they are running out of space for all the murdered bodies in the Windy City.

It seems appropriate, in a grim sort of way.

Most American cities are headed for the same fate. Detroit just got an earlier start. In fact, I’d rather live in Detroit than most because at least I can be armed in Detroit.

Not long ago, one of the "investigative tv shows" had a report on just such a case. Young girl taken against her will and left in abandoned home.

Sad what is happening to our nation.

No idea if this is true, but I once read that within Detroit their existed an area the size of San Francisco that consisted of nothing but abandoned/burned/collapsing buildings. What occupants there were had wants/warrants out for them. Gangs. And at night only deer roamed the streets. Perhaps an exaggeration?

The culture of death leads to only one outcome.

Detroit, Flint, Chicago, Camden, etc., are stacking them pretty deep.

I read a long article from an archaeology journal where archaeologists studied Detroit to understand changes in land use as a city is abandoned.

For example, examining streets buried by grass and detritus and mapping how residents create new streets by driving through lots instead of following the old grid pattern, as well spoliation (removing & reusing architectural features from old buildings) and fortification of existing buildings.

The point of the article was that Detroit provided good examples of the process that transformed abandoned cities at the end of the Roman Empire.

Detroit is armed. Still lots being killed but a good many who are being killed had it comin.

I also noticed that the story says the bodies are being imported rather than locally produced.
