Skip to comments.Should Hamtramck Erect A 12-Foot Wall To Keep Out Detroiters?

DETROIT (WWJ) Prosperous suburbs surrounding Detroit and even the struggling enclaves within are working to distance themselves from a city in financial ruin.
In Hamtramck, one City Council candidate is taking that idea to the extreme.
Richard Fabiszak has proposed that Hamtramck build a 12 or 14-foot wall around the city, keeping out Detroiters, and requiring state-issued identification to get in.
That sounds crazy to me, one Hamtramck resident told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Sandra McNeil. I never heard of such a thing. That sounds like something youd see in a movie some kind of science fiction movie.
Resident Felicia Coldhoffer agrees.Wall off the city and you need ID to come in? Thats insane, she said.
But, is the crime situation Detroit such that plan like this would make sense to protect Hamtramck?
Its getting a little rough and tumble, but, I mean, thats not the way to fix it. Ya know, you build for the bottom up. You dont wall it off, Coldhoffer said.
With a population just over 20,000, Hamtramck is surrounded by the city of Detroit except for a small portion on the west side that borders the similarly surrounded city of Highland Park.

“Escape From New York”...I LIKE it. As long as they just hold the criminals IN...and THAT includes the dem politicians that brought the city down.
Coming to a theater near you later this summer, “Escape from Detroit” starring Sen. Carl Levin as Snake Pliskin, the UAW as the inmates, and the taxpayers as those trying to get out.
12’ may not be tall enough.
Ask Israel. No doubt if someone from “outside” actually tried to build on the miserable Detroit wasteland, it would be called “homesteading” and raised as an issue at the UN.
Perhaps we should wall in ALL these enclaves where Shari’a law is the dominant legal code.
After all, weren’t most of the cities of the Middle East, and a good many cities in Europe, once walled to prevent just such encroachments by their neighbors?
Its not so crazy...look what has happened to the State of Colorado...escapees from New York and other liberal nut job states are destroying Colorado as we speak...If they would have had to have a “pass” to enter, Colorado would not have descended into nut job status.
Sheesh, it's not like the property's worth anything........
I’m thinking more along the lines of “The Walking Dead” graphic novels. Gotta keep those zombies out.
Medieval would be an improvement over Detroit.
Clodhopper just proved that a wall would be meaningless because some self-loathing leftist would just leave the back door ajar and let the ferals pour in.
More like “Zombieland”, mebbe.
A wall like that worked in Uti nad Labem in the Czech Republic, so it may not be such a bad idea.
Muslim enclave alert!!!
Medieval...it is interesting that Hamtramck, MI represents one of the most Islamic communities in the US at about 47% Muslim as indicated in the below article. Half of the City Council may be Muslim. Muslims like to not assimilate and to exist in parallel societies as a base for foraying out on their mission of conversion of surrounding territory to Islamic rule, culture, etc. Muslims would like to isolate themselves from Detroit and surrounding areas and have better control of their cultural territory as it is developed...a security wall is consistent with creation of a primarily exclusive Islamic community in which the non Islamic components are removed as rapidly as possible:
Detroiters, think of them as zombies.
Over the past thirty years, a large number of immigrants from the Middle East (especially Yemen) and South Asia (especially Bangladesh) have moved to the city
Oh, joy. Ain’t “cultural diversity” just a wunnerful thing?
Who in hell thought letting those stone-age cretins into the U.S. was a GOOD idea? Heads on pikes for them!!
Very, VERY well-put.
I’ve not been up there in a decade.
So I’ll cede to FReepers with more recent experience.
You might well find that the imported Muzzies are far more desirable neighbors than the long time Motown residents.
12 feet is not enough...go with 20’...
I can believe that.
All right! South African style pass laws.
A shadow government would be the demise of America.
I was in Flint in 67 when the first racial riots broke out.
It was ugly.
It's just a terrible situation for many people who no doubt were born and grew up there.
I had heard that Dearborn had by far the most muslims. Is that no longer the case?
As a side note, I play ball with a guy who goes there once a month to stock up on pounds of polish sausage.......
Dearborn is much larger than Hamtramck (100k vs 22k).
It has more total muzzies but a lower percentage.
Yes there are places like that in my hometown of Cleveland.
When I visit, I do so very carefully....
At least in “Zombieland”, you could kill the undead. In real life, they vote for Obama and Carl Levin.
Those folks know how to build a WALL!
Imagine that across the Mexico border. Problem solved. So, why not?
i’d donate to build an israeli-style wall around the white house and congress, and scotus too.
“Still has the best Polish restaurants...”
I still have a T-shirt from the Polish Festival or whatever it’s called that they have there once a year. Like a big block party with live music, awesome Polish, Middle Eastern and other food booths and a great bar run by some Greek guys I think.
It is (was? - I was there about six years ago) a fantastic event. My brother lived there. It did not seem violent or anything. But Detroit is half ghost-town.
Oh yeah, I think Hamtramck is also known for being the first town in America to have daily public Muslim calls to prayer.
Detriot will look like Haiti in 15 years.
It takes two walls... with a kill zone in between. The fences need to be set up to establish crossing fields of fire.
A 12 foot wall...what a bonehead.
Feral Detroiters have already moved into the pointes.
Shows my age.
