It is a travesty.in other industrialized western countries murder is much less.even in 1981 instead of motor city people referred to it as murder city. Vincent chin case didn't help especially with light sentence. Look across river and see what crime and murder rates r. After second world war japan had new constitution written by USA. Their society is such that honesty is a norm. Leave home unlocked. Here it is fear of being mugged murdered car jacked etc. When I was in japan in air force one guy said he is from detroit. Don't mess with him.he was from new York. I didnt have any knowledge of street smarts. I lived in taylor tucky.What type of image does it have on strangers wanting to visit but r terrified because of statistics?

Let's all wring our hands together at 5PM today and see if it gets better.
PS. Vincent Chin was killed in Highland Park, not Detroit, but still relevant.
PS2. Japan is a monolithic society and a cantaloupe can cost $200 there.
PS3. Strangers are advised to stay away.
