Also...wow I just moved to the Metro Detroit area (Westland) from Toledo OH, where Ive spent most of my life on the south side and river east and it's not THAT bad! It may be 'ghetto' but the people actually care about their communities and CONTRIBUTE to bettering their neighborhoods- and I'll have to say, being on the streets, alone as a white female, I never felt threatened late at night.

I moved to Detroit in the early 1970s from Windsor Ont. and have spent a good part of my childhood and adult life in Detroit. This included going to Detroit public schools and busing and all the other drama that went with living in the hood. I have since moved away in 2005, this is the third time I have left Detroit . What I have learned from living in other cities in both the U.S. and Ontario is that Detroit has to be one of the most disfunctional cities around . When you elect and re-elect mayors like Coleman young and Kilwaumee the hip hop mayor. How can you possibly expect Detroit to comeback and be a livable city and compete with other cities for economic growth and lower murder crime rates etc.. as long as this cycle of disfunction continues and incompotent and corrupt city officials get elected, no one will come to save Detroit from itself; not the suburbs not the feds or the broke state of Michigan. the private sector is not gonna move lots of jobs here with the reputation our city has.

It's good to be out of the hood! The D in Detroit stands for dysfunction, depressing, delapatated, deplorable, Remember say nice things about Detroit.

Vote for a Democrat and support big government. Who gives a hoot if it doesn't work. They (Dems)pay us low life's lots to do nothing. Just think if Mabomma get elected. More money for all us that do nothing but want more money for nothing. F'ing corporations ruining everthing, hiring and stuff like that. Dems don't like business, like the social programs and giving money away. I am a lifelong Dem and see no reason to change.

Yep, and it's headquartered in the Manoogian Mansion, with branch offices in Police Headquarters, and the Prosecuting Attorney's office.
I guess you know by now that the Wayne County Prosecutor's office is not a branch of the scum-breeding program headquartered in the Manoogian Mansion. On 3/24, Wayne County Prosecutor, Kym Worthy indicted Kwame Kilpatrick with some 8 counts of felony charges.

It's not the first time. Detroit should be used to it. Sure makes me glad I got the f**k out when I had the chance. I'm in Branson, MO. There was a murder here last week. It was the FIRST of the year and everyone is in a panic. I have to laugh at them. They have no idea here what real crime is.
Then the other day a friend in one of the suburbs was trying to tell me how wonderful it is in Detroit now and how it's changed since I moved away 5 yrs ago. Poor man......falls for all the "fix up downtown to lure the suburbanites and tourists" crap. All the money is used to fix up downtown at the expense of the neighborhoods. I was born and raised in Detroit and lived there for the better part of 54 years. It never came back after the riot and I doubt it ever will. It's sad, because at one time both whites and blacks lived side by side and got along. Seems like a dream now.
Until last year, I had not been downtown Detroit in 20 years. I was completely amazed at the changes that have been made. That Comerica Park is a beauty. The Fox Theatre is breathtaking, The Renaissance building is now owned by GM,and they moved all of the HVAC from the front leaving the front of the building open to see. We never knew how beautiful it was in the front until now. The Riverwalk is something to be reckoned with. And the Seldom Blues is second to none. Downtown Detroit is a different world now.

On the other hand, I agree with you, I can't see the mentality of the people within the entire city being changed just because of new developments in the heart of the city. Detroit was starting to look like something for a minute. But then the problem with the sub-prime mortgages raised its ugly head and now a lot of the abandoned homes are being broken into and looted for the copper and other metals because there are no jobs here. People have to feed their families. Unfortunately, whenever the economy is down, crime is up.

I am currently in college and intend to use my degree for a plane ticket. I have got to get away from this place if it's the last thing I do. I am not the only one with this vision. A lot of people have already left Detroit and a lot of people are preparing to leave. I can't say that I don't care about what happens to Detroit because this is my hometown and I have family here, but I do not intend on living my life here. All of my friends and family know that I am leaving here as soon as possible. It is no secret that I am not happy here. Pray for me and wish me well.
