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.


One needs to be fiscally responsible.
Why doesn't the mayor just ask the public to stop comitting so many crimes. Not the mayor in jail, the new one.

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.

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.

Kit Fister: While I agree with this in theory, it's not fantastical to do what has worked elsewhere: improve the neighborhood, have neighbors willing to watch out for each other, and people in general willing to take responsibility. Even if it's a few blocks.


Well, I moved from one of the nicer areas of town, so crime wasn't an issue in my neighborhood. But we're talking about Houston, so it's not like you're going to clean up the city without massive loss of life statistics.

But, I suppose you're right. Given detroit at this point, i'd say the only way to do it would be to barricade off your area and go totally post-apocolypse survivalist on it, and I doubt the measures needed to stop the flood would be palletable by some.

Actually, just have the DPD send every State a list of current residents, then just shun the whole city. If those worms try to spread their slime, the States will have them on a list, and know to keep an eye on them.

Lack of job opportunities and poor choice in elected officials?

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.

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.

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
