Detroit people problems.

In other news, people still live in Detroit.

Detroit police have been called numerous times to the store, but the owner says right after officers disperse the crowd and leave the scene, the teens returns to their normal posts.

Once you shoot a few the rest will get the message. Teens are at least as intelligent as crows.

so just keep calling the police as soon as they come back?
Eventually they will have to start arresting people

If they stop responding business owner could sue them

But then again its detroit and the responding "officer" is probably baby daddy to a few of those there.

"This is a Bad Crew gas station," said one teen loitering out front on Tuesday. When asked what that meant, he said, "If you don't know, I can't even tell you."

I can see the teen's point. The follow-up question was pretty stupid.

I had an acquaintance who owned a bar with this issue. He was on vacation and when he returned the manager he had running the place had let some non-money spending teens loiter around the pool tables for a few days and she was scared to tell them to leave. His Glock persuaded them to leave the establishment and not return.

The interesting thing was that none of did anything about it. You figure based on A-Team episodes or Death Wish reruns that they would come back and cause trouble, but nope. Just left. Didn't return.

Are they part of the 47%? Some how we have failed these poor youth, we didn't provide them with good paying jobs and didn't try hard enough to keep them in school to get a good education. Youths like this are craving a little love and maybe some guidance in the right direction. Maybe if we bought them each a large flat screen, video games, cable subscription, and air conditioning they would socialize at each others home and end this poor mans plight.

Every year or two we'd takeover a new place... first it was a McD's up the street, then the BP next door, then a pool hall that didn't care if you were underage (until they got busted for selling us smokes and were run out of business), then it was the diner at Days Inn, then it was Mr. B's - another 24hr diner... then I our apartments. Suprised I remember all of them.

I worked in a gas station in the Detroit area. Night shift. 9 PM to 9 AM. Every day.

I was held up three times. Twice with gun pointed at me. Once with a baseball bat. I was assaulted once (punched) by an unruly customer. That was my last day of work. The following week I moved out of the area and never looked back.

And for the record, they were not African Americans. Every single time, it was Chaldeans. In the Detroit area, that's shorthand for "Catholic Arabs", and they were WEALTHY little farkers... They didn't need to rob gas stations. They did it for kicks.

So... Yeah. Detroit and the entire metro area sucks. Live there only if you hate yourself.

If there wasn't a minimum wage law, would these teens be hired by the gas station owner? They could run out like a Indycar crew, check tire pressure, check water/oil levels, top off the tank for you... Would these kids be willing to work for $2/hr? I mean they're standing around the gas station anyway. Why not, right?

Call the cops. Again when the cops show up tell them that you want to start filing restraining orders against the teens. Once they start to violate the restraining orders they can go spend some time in jail.

Saw this on channel 2 a week ago. Sigh. I feel bad for the store owner. He should just pack up and move back to whatever wartorn country he originally came from. I don't know who told him to run a gas station in Detroit, but they were not very nice to him. I can only hope these youths stay in Detroit and keep out of Ann Arbor. I don't mind the occasional romp of slumming it in Ypsi, but even that is getting worse. Sometimes I just want to go out and have fun and not have to worry about being "caught slippin'" whilst purchasing the latest issue of Husky Gentleman Enthusiast magazine--or a FARKING DONUT!!! It is amazing how a few bad apples spoil the bunch. Why don't they have anything better to do than hang out and make disgusting comments towards people just trying to buy a donut for their wife that has had a bad day?
So thankful our main friends moved out of ypsi so I don't ever have to think about the In n Out store again as well. Whew, nothing but trouble at that place. I hated having to go up there with him :(

If the truth is taht there are black kids being assholes at a gas station, then no, the truth is not racist. Hwever, if your truth is that the reason these asshole kids have taken over a gas station is because they are black, well, you're not that bright.

On the first day of my summer vacation, I woke up.
"Then I went downtown.
To look for
A
Job.
Then I hung out in front of the drugstore...."


If this area had a neighborhood association, they could combine their money to hire an off-duty cop to hang there. The local park near my old neighborhood had a loitering/drug problem, until they did this and it worked in just a couple of days, with a once a week random touch-up visit.

I agree the mosquito noise, and the unpopular music would be good non-aggressive but potentially effective countermeasures. Mosquito may be reduced in effectiveness because blaring hip-hp all day might deafen the kids prematurely.

These fine, upstanding young citizens need decent housing, clothing, food, and schooling given to them so they will not feel the sting of poverty and therefore be forced to rage against the 1% who insist on keeping them trapped in Detroit. All these angels with dirty faces need is compassion, and then their naturally kind, industrious, loving and caring natures will blossom. Why do we show no compassion for our fellow man?
