Oldiron_79: Am I in before Robocop refs?
fusillade762: Careful guys, SJ is just slathering at the bit for an opportunity to call us all bigots.
shanrick: the free market will smooth everything out.
sure haven't: Wife and I go shopping in Detroit sometimes, although we stick to the white bread areas.For the first while though on those freeways going through the inner city you just feel your heart sink for everyone living there.Took a wrong turn off a freeway once and ended up in some neighborhood with burned out buildings. So strange the night and day-ness. One area is all money and shopping. Two neighborhoods over it looks like a literal war zone.
Gyrfalcon: Well, no shiat Sherlock.Cops really do serve a purpose, you know. I know that's tantamount to heresy around here, but they do in fact prevent crime, take perpetrators off the streets, and arrest criminals before they commit other, more heinous crimes. Remove half the cops, and the ones who are left have twice as much to do and are about 1/3 as effective.It's just too bad that "I told you so" has to come at the expense of all the people victimized by the crooks that the cops weren't there to arrest.
SoundOfOneHandWanking: I suppose if they get two more, it would be a 40% increase which is indeed a spike, but going from 10 to 12 isn't exactly the crimewave they imply
hasty ambush: Given that Detroit elects criminals to public office what do you expect?8-time felon from Detroit wins state House seat in Michigan
wxboy: hasty ambush: Given that Detroit elects criminals to public office what do you expect?8-time felon from Detroit wins state House seat in MichiganIn fairness...8-time felon Democrat or Republican? It's pretty much a Hobson's choice.
ChubbyTiger: Seriously. Got lost once - closed on ramp - and ended up in an area where we should not have been. Cop pulled up along side us at a light and told us to drive to the interstate and not stop again for lights or stop signs or anything else. That scared me more than the neighborhood
crab66: Why do we even need police? Let the people regulate themselves.
accelerus: This is just how the blacks celebrate "4 more years" of THEIR guy in office.Seriously though -- Detroit is a shiat hole, and a textbook example of what happens when you let crazy black people take over.You can try to ignore the race issue all you like - but it's there. For all the "brotherly love" they like to preach, they sure don't practice it.Just nuke from orbit and be done with it.
