There would not be any flying bullets if people in the neighborhoods took back their streets.

Step 1. Organize a neighborhood posse, preferably of white people, but angry black folk will do.

Step 2. Arm yourselves with baseball bats, tire irons, guns, lots of guns.

Step 3. Exterminate! Exterminate!

Problem Solved...

People need to get involved in what's happening in their community. I don't feel any pity for these poor saps, they allow it to happen, they get what they deserve. They always get what they deserve.

Unfortunately it's alot easier said than done. Drugs, guns, and gangs are a business enterprise as well as a stain on human society. People are too frightened to speak up for fear of retaliation or they don't trust the police. It's a sad, never-ending situation.

Don't need to trust police, it's the citizens who need to police themselves. Fear is the only real power criminals have. You take that away by showing them you are not afraid and that you will hunt them down. If people want to continue to live in fear then they deserve to be wiped out. They can't blame it on anyone else or make excuses. The rest of us will just sit back eating popcorn and enjoy the show. It's like watching reality TV entertainment, which neighborhood gets obliterated next or which child gets gunned down.

Very true. I agree 100%, however, the reality is fear and apathy. Like you, I wish communities would turn in the scum that destroy them. The Detroit 300 is a vigilante like organizatoon that is doing everything in their power to keep the community safe.

Chief Godbee is all for spending that $2 million or so that will allow the police to "hear" the guns being fired. Then, using his data driven techniques, he will send a task force out instantly to arrest the miscreants and confiscate those weapons. Soon the Detroit 300 will be playing euchre.

Are the people of Detroit too frightened to go outside and mow their lawns and pick up some litter?

Not really. They just sleep during the day and who cuts the lawn in the dark? On the plus side, tall grass is less apt to support a fire.

Maybe I just don't give Detroiters the credit they don't deserve.

does being frightened take precedence over getting your kids to school on time, giving them an education, keeping your yard clean, rebuilding your city, etc. Sounds like Detroiters make a lot of excuses. What's funny is Detroit is known as the douchebag city of the country and it's not only Detroit that is awarded this title, it's all the suburbs surrounding Detroit too. All those douchebag suburbians who just sit back and watch Detroit decaying. You'll go down in history as the douches of the douches. I can't wait until the cancer spreads to all the suburbs cities, it's already begun.

According to some, suburbanites are moving back to the city in large numbers. OK, a few are and they are trendy young people who have not been mugged yet or wealthy loft purchasing gated community types.

If blight comes to the suburbs, people will move farther out. If it gets too bad and reaches a tipping point, justice will be demanded one way or another. Everybody is not willing to live with crime, litter and filth.

In all these comments on the topic, nobody or almost nobody ever talk about the honest hard working black being forced to live in what I consider intolerable conditions. They are doing what they can through their churches and groups. It's just not enough. Sometimes I will see black men delivering handbills in the suburbs. I always think how little they make for the hours they work and yet they have chosen a life of work over crime and loitering. These people would be fine in any neighborhood except for the obvious racism that would kick in. And part of the reason for that is that it's not only the good that move to the suburbs. It becomes a prorated version of Detroit that no respectable citizen can tolerate. So values go down and people move again.

is not the answer, you can run but you can't hide. The problem won't go away because you tuck tail and move to another suburb. White people keep running when they really should stay put and fight for what's theirs. If you truly loved your homes, neighborhoods and communities, you would not let crime destroy it.

Crime is the easiest thing to prevent, just pay attention and police your neighborhoods, you know that thing people in Detroit use to do way back.

Both white and black need to come together and take back Detroit. Don't complain about the city, do something about it.

How many great homes and neighborhoods were left abandon by whites ? Those were your parents homes and their parents homes, you left your family legacy and for what ? Because you were too scared to man up and and take responsbility ? You disgust me ha ha ha ha

When neighborhoods first started to change, many whites did at first hunker down to "save" their homes. They did not want to be chased away. They found themselves surrounded and living in fear. Most finally sold for peanuts and were happy to leave.

What are we talking about "saving" one's neighborhood? The expressways and reproduction made it necessary for black families to live somewhere. They moved to the closest and most affordable homes they could. Talk of saving the neighborhood and preventing people from moving in is just silly and unrealistic. People should be able to live where they want and can afford. I'm dam glad I can afford to live where I am.
