I enjoyed Robocop, but I never thought it would end up being prophetic. Eric
What a **** hole.
Consider the source.
With that said, I'd just as soon walk around Detroit as I would Memphis, St. Louis, DC, Gary, New Orleans, Little Rock or a bunch of other mid size cities. Detroit is no worse than any of those.
Don't forget Chicago.
Visited Detroit in the early sixties. It was a crap hole then.
Well at least the people in Detroit can get a gun permit. Think of how bad Baltimore, Loa Angeles, Stockton, and even our nation's capital are. Granted, Detroit is a craphole but it could be worse.... like Chicago.
dont blame the city, blame the people whom live there. a building never tried to mug me.
Anyone read Robert A. Heinlein's I Will Fear No Evil? He predicted that their would be what he called abandoned areas in American cities where you only went with the explicit understanding that you were on your own, no one would come to your assistance when you were attacked. Published in 1970.
It was inevitable given populations in the inner cities, racism, illegal immigration and politicians who see poor people as cheap and easy votes to be bought with welfare handouts. A republic or democracy cannot survive if there are too many people who don't even consider themselves part of it, aren't morally bound by its laws or share its values. I won't even get into language.
My mom grew up in the 1950s in the East Bay. Back then there were places in Richmond, CA where the police did not go.
Remember this was a time of police being able to beat people for pretty much any reason.
I did also....and yes....so very true.
`Another one would be "Escape from New York"
Wow, I had the EXACT same thought when i read the title of this thread.
If the Kenyan wins re-election this will be the norm in most big city's. Police are treated like criminals and criminals don't fear the system.
I work in Detroit and have to (unfortunately) agree. Just this past Thursday there was a shooting right across the street in broad daylight (3:00 P.M.) in the Burger King parking lot (I heard the shot.) No suspects, victim in the hospital in very bad condition. He worked in the meat packing plant near by. He layed in the parking lot for a good 10 minutes before EMS/police arrived. If I didn't work there, I sure as hell wouldn't be there.
It's already that way in a few.
Blaming the people who live there would be racist, so it's best to blame the city.
HE CAN FIX IT
You have to blame the people who run the city. They shoot down every idea on how to improve the city unless the idea comes from black people within the city. They want nothing to do with white people from outside the city.....no matter how much better it will make Detroit.
Your right it is what it is.....Should be interesting (in all aspects) when berry loses....
Sad fate for a historic American city. I certainly have no desire to go there anytime soon.
