Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
A exception must be made in the case of Detroit. The feds have the funding and manpower to go into Detroit and end the endless crime and non-stop decline. The city needs a make over. Yes Detroit has been mismanaged but the reality is that it was a factory-based city and now all the factories are overseas in places like China, India and South Korea. Detroit, Flint and cities like them need to be retooled for the future. It's going to take a proactive president and congress to fix Detroit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 67276631

The state of michigan does not have the resources to retool Detroit and Flint. It took something big to destroy those cities, like sending all the factories overseas! And it's going to take something big, like the feds taking over with a innovative plan, to turn everything around. Only the feds can do this. Right now Detroit and Flint serve no purpose. That must change.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
while i support the death penalty, it doesnt serve as a crime deterrant...

why?

because you dont go out to rob or kill someone thinking that if you get caught you would receive the death penalty, if you go out thinking this you just wont do it!

you go out full of adrenaline and other drugs, to rob or kill and you got 2 things in mind, the plan of what youre going to do and the escape route you would take. thats it.


let me say this again, i support the death penalty but it doesnt prevent crimes, never have, never will!

You are mistaken. What I lived through was like the third world that you speak of. They have what I had, and being as I was a lone female 46-52 during my unwanted, but highly valuable, survival training period, it was very hard, especially after my BMI hit 14.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
If you look at the poorest counties in the country and their demographics, you'll find the poorest counties that are mostly white often have low crime rates and especially low violent crime rates. This blows the whole socioeconomic bs all to hell.

I don't know why people believe all races are the same. We all know that isn't the case with animals. If you want a feisty energetic dog you might get a terrier. If you want a calmer breed you might choose a labrador retriever. If you're looking for a good guard dog a german shepherd would be a good choice. The difference in their traits are genetic. I don't know why people don't think this applies to humans.

yeah, because Americans value price and quality over patriotism. If those same car companies had held up to the standards of their competitors, they could be as great today.

The thing that made American car companies great was no competition. We eliminated their major competition in WW2, and it took several decades to catch up, but once it did, it beat the fat ol' American companies to shit in a decade.

Poor rural blacks don't act like town/city blacks, and town blacks aren't as bad as city blacks. I think the difference is caused by differing levels of discipline, especially, but not entirely, a lack of fatherly discipline.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
Other than the obvious problems, Detroit still suffers from extreme inability to use cash given them in an appropriate manner that will actually benefit the city.

As an example, Detroit refurbished some distressed properties to the tune of over 200K each and then sold some of them for less that 90K. None of the houses sold recouped any of their "investment". This type of inability to do simple math on the part of their "leaders" will continue on towards ruination despite any attempts to thwart it.
