i remember when auburn hills was pontiac. about 20 years ago they decided to rename certain area of pontiac to auburn hills- it is pontiac just a name so they could up the price of homes. they are one and the same so living in auburn hills does not make any difference. there have always been black people living in pontiac and that is not what made it a bad city-it is all the druggies and punky little gang members and also the lazy people who go around and rob people instead of getting a job. i used to live in pontiac but moved away a few years ago-and i loved it when i lived there and worked for g.m. it is surely a shame what is happening there now.

Are all of you from Pontiac? Because if your not in Pontiac you should not make ignorant comments. It comes down to this; Pontiac is a city, every city has the good and comes with the bad. You dont hear gun shots all day all night, you dont get robbed at gunpoint when u look at someone the wrong way etc. etc. Anywhere you live you should lock your doors. Anywhere you live you should stay away from drug related situations. Anywhere you live you should just be nice to those around you and people will be nice back. Pontiac is not bad, its just cultured. I have lived here for 5 years. My family is not poor and my daughter isnt a gangster and my neighbors are not ghetto and people actually wave to you when your walking down the street. If you dont want problems then stay away from the problem situations and dont become part of it. What it comes down to is this; Pontiac is a city, an old city with a lot of history that comes with old houses and old buildings that just need to be restored. Its getting better here. But I promise you that we have the best neighbors, the best laughs and best community anybody could ever have.

I have considered buying a house in a few little "pocket" areas of Pontiac that still seem safe and excellent houses for very little money. Oakland County has taken over the law enforcement and it seems to be a little better. I still have to do a little research, so not sure if I will buy there.

What a f@%king pathetic comment. Based on that post, I'd say you have a home for life in Pontiac.

Run them fcukers down in the street where they stand, string them up on the light poles on your corners as warnings. Take back your city, your neighborhood, your pride, if you ever had any to begin with.
Given the date of this post, your msg is wholly understood. Essential services were cut all the way to the bone, ift made me stop watching the local news altogether. Its a f#%ked solution, but I like it bc you had a situation that needed to get unf#%ked like the yr. Before. Best of luck in your cause.

why is it whenever white people screw up something or somewhere, they always want to place blame on black people. when white people left areas in Pontiac they left the roaches behind...Admit it. percentage wise you have more trifling, thieving, destructive folks than anyone on the planet....Most people in general want and try to live in cleanliness and safety, irregardless of color...but for you to say,"the blacks did it" shows just how ignorant and trifling you really are and always have been....
Lol Oh sure, Sammbo. Let's blame on pets to while we're at it. I'm grew up in Ecorse, another city adulterated by s#%tbags of every color and stripe, proud to say I'm ten yrs absent. Along the way, I did live in Ypsilanti, another violent city. Partied my ba#%s off for two yrs , but E. Michigan was beset by worthless bluegummers, irredeemible white trash, etc. I live in Novi and am happy to be in a nice home in a nice subdivision arpund people who actually give a f#%k about fulfilling the general social contract. I would not trade it for all the bourbon in Kentucky

I witnessed 5 people get shot outside hte club in pontiac last night! It was crazy, but even crazier the police shooed me away when I tried to tell them what I had seen...safe? NO WAY!! the news didnt even bother to report on it? WTF?
It's unfortunate, Andrea, the f#%king Keystone Cops outfit pushed you aside w/o hearing a word of what you had to say. Also of the five people shot, how many were black? And how about the race of the shooter? Relevant bc blacks killing each other is not only rampant, but far more visceral and therefore newsworthy.

My son and I were out for dream cruise and went to Pontiac on Friday night. I have a red 65 mustang fastback that is pretty fast for a small block. Ended up breaking down at 10:00 p.m. as we approached the corner of South Blvd. and Woodward. Had to push it the last 100 ft or so to get it to the McDonalds lot. Plenty of blacks around, and not one offered to help. My son is 16, I am 47 and we are white. It took about 45 minutes for the flatbed to arrive, and we were two very nervous people. I was approached a couple of times by men for money, which I said I had none, even though I had a couple hundred on me. It turned out ok, and we got home in one piece. I would say with out the police presence, we may have been telling a different story. I own a house in Pontiac as well, and have seen its property value cut in half or more. It is very sad and appears very little can be done unless they were able to bring back manufacturing. Good luck.
You have my sympathies, sir, for what Im sure was quite an hour long wait in a less than desirable area G#%#amn pandhandlers, however many laws on the booksbin that town, they are there to stay.

How prescient your words were. Shpoot first, eat a delicious, agreeable meal and then ask the appropriate questions later
