I shake my head every time i see people in Detroit throwing garbage from a moving car, or even sitting in a parking lot. once every few weeks i have to make a u-turn in the hood to avoid a couch or a mattress. Then the shit sits there until it rots away. The neighbors don't even bother pushing it out of the way. The majority of people who live in Detroit have such a twisted way of thinking that things there will never change.

I exited I-94 west @ Outer Drive exit and at the light a car known as a Donk I guess, thru 3 black pint bolltes of some sort of booze out the window in the weeds. Fucking animals.

Burn it all down.

Not that it's detroit, but I remember a sheet of plywood on the lodge north of 10 mile that layed there for 4 weeks, I actually started keeping track....and it was in the middle of the freeway.....I guess southfield is close enough to Detroit to be just as shitty.

Detroit has such a small amount of pride.....rather than pay detroit's bills I say we just divert the detroit river around it and let it be an island of it's own in the river....just make sure there are no bridges.

What fun that would be to drive across on a motorcycle while rounding a corner.

I am honestly starting to worry about rioting breaking out down here. I hope if it happens I am safe at home or they concentrate in an area where looting can happen. It is a scary environment down here right now, but I think most people are oblivious to it (at least people at work).

I expect rioting this year. 1967 will look like a block party.

Why is this building still standing?



Abandoned homes-level them
Abandoned Buildings level them or convert them to low income housing.


That's what they are doing in the town of Fonda, NY which I drive through 2-4 times a day. Most of these homes are falling in on themselves. They are slowly tearing them down and either rebuilding or offering the house next to the abandoned property to buy the abandoned lot at a lower cost.

The new property owner gains home value while paying more taxes.

Detroit will never change as long as they keep putting people in power that use it for personal gain.

i know what you mean. everytime i see that sh*t i think of those photos of the slums in s. africa. is this behavior genetic or is it that "let the gov't take care of me" attitude?
