i was looking at city-data.com and detroit has a crime rating of over 1000, one in every 2000 people in the city will be shot this year. it's disgusting, this city is the pit of america and really should be wiped off the map. it's unfortunate that so many of us are born and raised in and around detroit and love this area. WHY???????? why is detroit what it is? is it fixable? i dont understand it. other cities have crime and drugs but not like we do. Philadelphia and Chicago dwarf detroit in sheer number of people and detroit in turns has more murders with less people.
