It just doesn't compute in my mind. How do those teams survive considering the city has been in the dumpster for years and years?


You forgot the Redwings...

In Dearborn and other places in the Metro area, there are large Christian populations of Iraqis (Caldeans) and Syrians. I's a good market for Al Jazeera. Now all they need is Al Gore.

I lived in the hood in Detroit, and I'm white. I never had a problem, but there is a lot of black on black drug crime (80% of the inner city is black so basically statistics).

That being said, 6 months and I got out. You can't ruin Detroit. You could improve it by bulldozing the entire city and starting over. But, they don't have enough of a tax base to pick up trash, or dead rats.

I haven't been there since I was a kid, but by the looks of things and the news that comes out of there, things are not quite right.

That's right. I never had problems in Dearborn either, but I would imagine there are some radicals there. It's fairly secure with the Ford complex and some nicer areas. Lots of police and security. Just like Grosse Pointe.

Here's an opinion about how bad it is, including a photo of a home 1 mile from where I lived. And Joe Biden says it's getting better...

Lot's of pics on Google of course. The old Union Station takes the cake!

Same goes for the second-most dangerous. You'll fare slightly better in the third-most dangerous, where your chances are one-in-eight. All three of those neighborhoods are located in the city of Detroit.

Oh, when you said one out of seven I thought you were talking about the whole city. I didn't realize things had improved that much.
