    In about five years, probably a true statement

    1/2 of Detroit residents say they don't feel safe in city; many look to police for safety, answers | News - Home

    Detroit is broke (in more ways than one). It has insufficient tax revenue coming in to pay for basic public services. It has a footprint that is too large for first responders to service effectively let alone efficiently. It is common practice for residents to call the TV station before dialing 911 because they will arrive sooner. They may not be able to do much but neither can the Police - kinda hard to fix dead.

    Those that can, have gotten out but some can't. Count your blessings that you weren't born into this situation and please exercise a little restraint before depriving the entire City's population their humanity by refusing to classify them as "people".

    Detroit city leaders have begun shrinking the city. I watched an interesting show on that with my Father not that long ago about how they are reducing the city's size to an area that they can support.

    Detroit has some big issues that are being addressed. Slowly though. It was amazing when they showed one region of the city from an aerial photo and had green dots on the homes with people. The area was some 50 or 60 blocks that had almost no one living in the areas, but were demanding city services. It had to be one family per block at best. Detroit truly has lost a lot of people since the boom days.

    It's a situation that the only answer the city can have is to shrink.

    IMO, that's a great solution, and probably the only one.

    Additionally, I'd think they need to arrange, somehow, to bulldoze and clear the abandoned, decrepit properties that'll continue feeding the crime and despair until they're gone. Hm ... perhaps they can get Caterpillar or some other maker to relocate to Detroit, to assist. Even Habitat for Humanity could have a field day, employing folks for decades.
