Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
Is the reason Detroit is so dangerous, ranking as the third most dangerous city in the US ( [link to www.neighborhoodscout.com] because Michigan has no death penalty, therefore murderers have no fear?

Case in point:

Just look at these scumbag murderers ( [link to www.mlive.com] Look at their attitude in the pictures. Read how, in court, they apologized to the families of Mike Brown, et al, but not to their victims' families! All they got for their heinous acts (I'm not going over them here, but they are evil to the core) was LIFE or LESS? If they don't deserve death, no one does, in my opinion.

Do you agree? Take the time to vote in the poll above, and let's see what GLPers think about this!

 Quoting: SilverKwest


The state should not have the power to murder citizens. How many innocent people has Texas killed?

Death penalty does not deter crime.

We should have a death penalty for cops that kill Americans.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9313


Um, you just contradicted yourself. It's called cognitive dissonance, and it can cause mucho problems in one's life, and head. The problems it causes are solved, though, once one sees the contradictions *and* corrects them in one's beliefs/thoughts.
 Quoting: SilverKwest


When the stats come in, the crime rate in Detroit should be dramatically lower. Since the new head cop told the citizens to get guns and defend themselves the criminals should be a little more carefull about who the attack. Gun ownership always has a positive effect on crime rates. After a few criminals get their fucking heads blown of, the crime rate goes down.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
I answered "Other" for this reason.

They probably all "deserve" the death penalty. However, whether we as a society should be condoning the State killing of citizens is another question entirely.

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.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
Even state parks tell you not to feed the animals as they become dependant on someone feeding them... Well, in Detroits case, there was such an abundant amount of wealth that they brought in lower class and fed them. The lower classes of people felt that wasn't enough and the crime rate rises. With a higher crime rate, the wealthy move and more lower class comes in. Before too long there isn't enough left to feed the scum

it's very simple, ANY city with over 80% black population is just pure shit.

if I'm wrong, please point out an example.

your a real idiot.

a city with an 80% black population is shit not because of blacks. Its shit because of the overall greed of WHITE americans.

blacks dont turn the city to shit...the city is already shit and blacks have no choice but to live in them.

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.

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.

+5 for this thread.

Oh, they can do math. They got under the table kickbacks for those bargains, you can bet the bank on that.

Re: Is THIS what's wrong with Detroit?
Honestly, there is not much left to steal in Detroit itself, so the crime is spreading further and further out into the suburbs.

The perps know that they are immune from getting pulled over if driving around a suburb where they don't belong because of political correctness and all the backlash against 'profiling' etc.

A few months ago I was getting gas at 14 mile and Drake road in Farmington (traditionally a nice area) and was accosted by a guy looking for money so he could put gas in his car and go to a job interview. Yeah, right.
