Gee, that makes sense: the population of the city has dwindled - it's a 'give' that the murder rate would decline.

Now the perps. have to actually aim to hit someone.

True, the city of Detroit has lost a lot of people for various reasons. Some moved on to make a "better life" for the future. Faith in Detroit,in its people, hard working, loving and doing what they can with what they have will bring them and the city of Detroit through what "some" consider as being "hopeless". Are you a part of the problem or part of the future ?
