It's more than out of control. People can't safely be out in their yards or come and go especially at night. It's to the point where people are readily shooting back at the police. The crime rate would be even higher if people were not forced to bar their windows and stay home. Detroiters are like lobsters boiling in a pot. They know it's uncomfortable, but they don't realize they are in hell. I do not know where the point is that someone sends in the military and starts protecting citizens directly. Such a plan would require Martial law and I would favor the most harsh treatment of violators. The plan would almost need to become permanent as the culture of crime will not change because of a temporary occupation. Therefore, nothing will be done except hand wringing and blessings from the pulpit.

there is no coincidence that when you increase the population of Cullerds it increases the Crime and Murder rates too.

That's because no matter what the economic times have been, boom or bust, the culture of crime always exists with the black population.

Don't thousands of murders happen every year in America? Are you still proud of this country? I don't think that murder alone determines your pride. Of course the homicide numbers are disturbing. I don't condone the violence. However, the great city of Detroit is, and will always be, my pride and joy.

Read your own words. You do condone the violence. You have accepted it. You take pride in it. Sure there are other dead people around, but on a per capita basis, the black crime is off the chain. Your position is completely untenable. You are in fact the very reason that crime has reached the level it has in your community. If you and your people refuse to see reality and act in your own best interest, you threaten to bring us all down.

Ok so let me get this straight, taking pride in my birthplace somehow condones violence? What sense does that make? If you read my post carefully, you would understand clearly what I said. I'm not going to explain myself again. You know, what is up with this disgusting misconception, this egregious, GIGANTIC LIE that seems to perpetuate the minds of white people that somehow the black population as whole enjoy violence? And don't give me the "typical" example of rap music and stats and the evening news. That has NEVER spoken for all black Americans. It never speaks to the thousands of black police officers, engineers, lawyers, business owners, entertainers, etc; you know, positive people who build up their community and not tear it down. Your logic and reasoning are horribly flawed. Black people are fed up with violence in their community as well. And there are examples of black people who are trying to do something about it. Nevertheless, I know that there will never be enough proof for someone like you with prejudice cemented in your mind and heart.

Just face it, Cullerds would rather settle arguments and disputes with guns and knives.
See, lacking education (it's not a valued atribute to them), they've failed to learn the art form of discussion, communication and mediation. It's just so much easier for them to respond and lash out in an animalistic way than in a proper human method.

The numbers simply go against any of what you say. An example here or there of a successful black person does not change the direction of the criminal black culture. Yes, I am totally prejudiced against crime and you are not. You support it. Crime can't survive as it does without neighborhood support. Your arguments to the contrary seem childish.

Cute quip: "your arguments to the contrary seem childish." That's really funny. I guess you can stay "mature," ignorant, biased, and utterly uninformed. If you could, just maybe, chisel some of the cement off of your brain and open your eyes just a tad bit more, you would see what I'm talking about. The truth of the matter is that crime is repulsive and I have never, ever condoned it. You still cannot tie pride in ones birthplace to their approval of crime. That argument is totally without merit or base.

Many were kids and old people too. Almost all were blacks. The numbers don't lie. People can have their own opinions. They can't have their own facts.

And the numbers go way beyond the killings. You can't have anything nice around without fear of theft or vandalism or personal violence. What kind of life is that? What type of people would live like that and allow that to exist in their community among their neighbors and often within their own family. In the old West people got fed up quickly and ran the miscreants out of town, or much worse.

People are so ignorant. This is not a race issue, but a social issue. The economical status of Detroit has decreased which has caused crime rate to increase. Whites are moving out beause there are no opportunities in Detroit. Blacks are moving back to Detroit to try to rebuild...unfortunately at this point, the bad outweigh the good. Before you make a comment such as, "it's the black people" do your research....

Obviously, education is not a valued ATTRIBUTE to you either...and because I have had the opportunity to attend school in both Detroit and West Bloomfield, I can say that the education is much different...which goes back to economic and social status...Teachers in Detroit are paid much less than the teachers in the Suburbs...this definitely makes a difference in an educators teaching style...There are so many things that we do not learn in high school in Detroit that you will learn in the suburbs. That is not Detroiters fault. It is a continuing cycle that has to stop. Unfortunately, there are still some people like you who stereotype and don't look at statistics to grasp an understanding of why things are the way that they are...but I guess that people like you have to have someone to blame other than rely on facts...

Thank you angel for your brilliant, sensible post. Unfortunately, Topix is rife with ignorant racists who REFUSE to judge individually. Instead, they cast a blanket over an entire "race" of mankind. They can't see the other factors that have led to Detroits downfall.

When a bear is attacking you and threatening to eat you, you don't say "Oh well, it's OK because the bear is just hungry. It's not really his fault. He's REBUILDING his tissue."
Poor people don't need to kill other people. Simple as that. If blacks suddenly became civilized and had a low crime rate, whites and everybody else would be trying to move in and build houses next to them. The tax base would go back up and Detroit would prosper. Detroit emptied out because of black crime including during times of prosperity.
