I like how Fark liberals are more upset about some racist comments at the end of the article than the reality that black Detroit has indeed become an utter shiathole. Keep on keeping on though. You can only ignore reality for so long.

I have to say I had a really good impression of most of the black people I met in Detroit. I guess it is certain neighborhoods you have to watch out for.

douchebag/hater: Kit Fister: logistic: Also, check out the comments to the article. Damn.

Yikes. And that cole dude appears to be black. When even your own start calling for your ass to be shipped out, you really went wrong somewhere.

One of the comments talk about sending the blacks back to Africa; why is what he said harsh but Snoop Lion calling Romney a 'white nubian' getting a pass?

This is not a political question and I don't really expect an intelligent answer - this being FARK and all - but still, racism is racism a Snoop Lion is a racist for saying it.


I don't disagree with the sentiment that people call out whites for racism much more readily, but the idea that a presidential candidate and a pothead rapper would be held to the same or even remotely similar standards of behavior is laughably farcical.

Amos Quito: From another recent article on Detroit:

"This is not just a law enforcement issue," Godbee said in Sunday's statement. "The increased prevalence of individuals choosing to use acts of violence to settle disputes between friends, acquaintances and more disturbingly family members must be addressed, if we are to stop the violence in our communities."

Godbee is the Dertoit police chief.

It's a cultural leper colony.

Wall it off and seal it up before it spreads.


Godbee was also just suspended for dipping his pen in the company ink. A female officer in IA to boot. He's also married and a minister of sorts. It was found out when the officer tweeted a photo of her gun in her mouth after finding out the chief went with yet another woman to a conference.

/corruption and an attitude that you can do no wrong in Detroit runs rampant among public officials

dumbobruni: NYC has about one officer for 230 people. that doesn't include school safety cops, traffic enforcement, or auxiliary. Detroit has a comparable ratio.


Yeah, that ratio doesn't really explain anything here. There might be a matter of expectation and a malaise.

I say let black people build the kind of communites they want to live in.
Stupid white liberals of both parties believe every human has the same values and wishes for the same lifestyle. We think bringing democracy to the middle east will solve the region's problems. We think black people are just like us with different skin color. This is so wrong headed. Let them live like they want to and then let us live like we want to and build the kind of towns and schools that suit us.

As a New Orleanian, I know what it feels like to constantly have your city dumped on by people who don't know anything about it. But here's the thing: In 2006, as fallout from Katrina continued to grip the city and murders skyrocketed due to returning dopers fighting to re-establish turf, we used to joke, "At least we're not Detroit."

Now that's just sad when residents of what outwardly appeared to be a police state with heavily armed men in Humvees on patrol every night are making fun of you.

/Hey Detroit Farkers, I feel for you.
//I think I looove you
///seriously though, keep your chin up
 
2012-10-07 05:05:15 PM
So you want to fix Detroit? Here's how you do it:

1. Put two police officers on every corner 24/7 armed with M4's and roving motor patrols every so many blocks
2. Go block by block and demolish every single building that is empty, condemned, or deemed unsafe
3. Zero tolerance for people living on the street, move them to a shelter or jail
4. Once you have the area under control get get a good city manager to attract business

dumbobruni: FLMountainMan: Generally, large police forces have one officer per 500 people. So, Detroit (~717,000 people) should ideally have around 1,434 police officers. Sounds like the police chief thought that police staffing should remain constant, despite Detroit's population dropping by 25%. While he or she may be right in light of Detroit's demographic and economic challenges, it's hard to justify extra police officers when your government's broke.

NYC has about one officer for 230 people. that doesn't include school safety cops, traffic enforcement, or auxiliary. Detroit has a comparable ratio..


From the Farking Article: Iorio says the once 2,000 strong force is shrinking rapidly; since the start of summer, hundreds of officers have left the department.

From the Farking Census: the city has a population of 713,777

If we assume that Iorio is full of shiat and/or not counting hew hires, 713,777/2000 = 356

If we assume that "hundreds of officers have left" means that 200 have, we get a ratio of 396.

Either way, I'm going to assume you went to Detroit public schools.

Yeah, i noticed that too. Strange. Maybe he just has that picture so that he can get away with making racist comments. Or maybe he hates himself so much that that's why he's with a white woman in the picture.

Detroit is a shining example of decades-long liberal democrat control. That city and its conditions are exactly what happen when you take liberal policies to their logical conclusion. You simply cannot drive out business, increase government corruption and control, pay off the unions, and stir up the racial anger pot for so long without something like Detroit being the result. Detroit is the one of the first of many children of liberalism. There will be many many more in the coming days. I hope you're ready. Things are not going to get better, and we will see this on a national scale soon enough.

I just posted Crime Stats for the top 25 most populous cities.

See them here.

I downloaded the FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2011 (latest available, still preliminary, so some data is missing).

You can quickly see that Detroit has a violent crime rate out of this world. As does DC, Baltimore and Memphis (per 1000 citizens).

There are many White liberal/Democrat communities that sustain themselves just fine. I've lived in a number of them. These "Whitopias" are characterized by ecological concern, group community action for shared interests, good schools and 0% violence.
You're oh so close. Try again.

It's not their race that's important. It's their political leanings. Detroit has been under a pure Democrat government for decades and decades. And the resulting condition of Democrat control is plain to see.

As Vectron has pointed out, quite a few white liberal/democratic societies flourish and do quite well, I would venture to suggest that many rural areas have quite prosperous hippie communities (I know of one) that have not at all fallen apart but seem to live well with the most liberal ideals. The deciding factor is hitting you in the face, mugging you, and blaming it on the man...it is not the political affiliation.

Yeap, that is exactly it...but you are again blaming symptoms of the disease on the overall sickness, and not the disease. It is not even really a "black" thing, other then a black cultural thing. The celebration of ignorance, the constant victim mentality, and the overall desire to destroy rather then create. It is not limited to black communities, but it does wear the crown in them. There are plenty of black individuals who escape this mentality and culture and do quite well, are excellent members of communities...they are often brought up in white majority areas though.

I have an ample amount of white trash in my extended family. Most have done jail time, most are on drugs or alcoholics, most have sporadic employment, most have little respect for education. It's a class thing, not a racial thing.

starting salary of an officer in the Detroit PD is near that of NYC. "can't afford to work in Detroit" = complete nonsense.

and no, you don't deserve a raise when 70% of murders go unsolved and the average response time is over a half hour.
