Detroit's A Very Dangerous City!

Wed Jan 31, 2007 11:57 am





The town once known for the Sound Of Young America and What's good for General Motors is good for the country has seen an unheard of spike in sexual assault crimes. The new victims are being mannequin jacked out of store windows and God knows what is done to them in their captivity. Maybe Oprah or Dr. Phil can come to the rescue of these
plastic class citizens! That is what most egghead professionals would suggest. However, it's time for Draconian measures and the one man who can come to Motown and save the day and stop mannequin sexual abuse is:

Close. Riots were in '67. Tigers won the Series in '68.

We are going back to the 60'S and 70'S. I lived in New York the night the MLK was assassinated. I was visiting friends in upstate New York and was coming home on the train and I remember looking at the skyline of New York on the way in and seeing the red glow in the sky. A ll I remeber is that instead of making the usual stops the train went straight into Grand Central Station, I heard later what had happened

Detroit is a complete shitbox of a town, and as a Michigander I am embarrassed by it. The population has steadily decreased over the past decade, and for good reason. The downtown is under a revitalization thanks to Comerica and Ford Field, but the rest of the city is one big swill.

I hate being based there. It's the worst place to have to sit reserve in. I'm confident i'll get in to SEA or HNL this year or the beginning or next. I choose to commute so I don't have to live there. I wouldn't stay with NW if I had to live there. It's that bad.

If I never go back there again, my life will be greater for it. Honestly, the 3 days I spent in Detroit can be likened to 3 days in a septic tank. Not one pleasant moment anywhere at any time.

I love the Robocop movies! One thing I always thought weird though is the fact that they take place in Detroit but all three movies are filmed in three different cities, all of which are not Detroit (Robocop 1 was filmed in Dallas, Robocop 2 filmed in Houston, and Robocop 3 filmed in Atlanta).

Oh yeah and by the way, Im from Detroit. I was born IN THE CITY at St. John Hospital in the dark days. Im proud of my city and proud to stand up and tell
'em Im from Detroit.

At least it has a soul.. Unlike the santized soul-less sprawling suburbia what is my purgatory currently (Jacksonville, FL).

BTW, I'm not slamming the city of Detroit. I've never been so, who am I to judge. I entitled my thread for attention getting and for humor. Heck, if the serial mannequin rapist was in my home town of Baltimore, Md. USA, it would be featured in the title.

This mannequin may be buff enough to take on the serial mannequin violator!


In a few years bet on an episode or two Ripped From The Headlines
on one of the Dick Wolf Law and Order juggernauts. Starring some mangled mannequins. My money goes to the SVU series; imagine Ice Tea, hottie sexy Mariska Hargaty, and Munch here to save the day in 44 minutes.

Yep, I was born there, too. Detroit Osteopathic Hosp. My dad's car was B&E'd while he was in the waiting room in labor and delivery. Go figure.
I commend you for being proud of your city but I disagree with your statement that the city has soul. I think a more accurate statement would be, the city had soul. In the day, it had some of the best jazz and blues clubs in the country. If you want a taste of Detroit's soul and the impact it had on the music industry, I highly recommend checking out, "Standing In The Shadows of Motown".

The saddest thing about Detroit is it truly has potential to be a great city. But until the voters stop electing corrupt turd baskets like Kwame Kilpatrick, Detroit will maintain it's image of being a dirty, dangerous city that outsiders should avoid.

My mom was an RN at DOH back in the day...

I don't want to get into the debate on how bad Detroit is, or isn't. I live here and make the best of it. There are a lot of great things about the city, and then again, it hurts to know how bad things have become.

A lot of new construction is going on, but will we see a great new City in our life time, sad to say, I doubt it. That hurts.

I put most of the blame on my parents generation who fled the city in the 1950s, and then complain about the current situation.

Taking that a step further, maybe if you look into why your parents fled the city you could lay blame on a more appropriate target. Just food for thought.

I still think Detroit could be a great city again and could even become a tourist attraction just like Chicago is but not under it's current leadership.

That happened in 1984 actually when there was a riot after the Tigers won.

Imagine what would happen in Detroit if the Lions ever won the Superbowl...

Uhh wait, that will never happen.

Who would that be? We are not talking Coleman Young and the like. This was the post war era, when land in the 'burbs was cheaper then in the city of Detoit.

Maybe GM for buying the streetcars and closing them down. The construction of the Lodge and Northland? A lot of reasons, but I just hate listening to them whine about how it is now, when it is their fault for letting it happen.
