See...

This is why Detroit can't have nice things.

Browns Bun Bakery? Did he get shot in the butt-tocks?

So, reenacting the Battle of Camaron?  Where is Capitaine Danjou's Hand?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: A shooting?! IN DETROIT?!


I know, I assumed it would have happened in Chicago. There's no one left to shoot in Detroit.

Why are there still people in Detroit? We should just put a fence around it and call it a prison.

It's probably just about as Mexican as most Mexican restaurants anymore.

/ the one by my house is actually run by Hispanic people; their tortas are amazing

People who put a lime in their beer should be shot.

That's a very telling pic in TFA...

Why anyone would want to spend the day on crowded street in Detroit is beyond me. How could nobody see that coming

¡Ay, caramba!

Just make sure it's Duke's. I can eat that stuff right out of the jar.

uncleacid: People who put a lime in their beer should be shot.


What about putting a lime in your coconut?

Why should they be shot, anyway?  That seems rather extreme, since all they're doing is offending your delicate tastes.  Would you consider a more appropriate punishment?

Good lord, the comments on TFA...

Now let me get this straight. You put the lime in the coconut?

I'm going to celebrate by eating tacos for dinner. Washed down with a Mexican coke.

The important thing is that the victim died with his pants low so that we can all see his underwear. That's how you will be remembered by the world. Dead on the ground with your underwear showing. Wearing your pants low will give you the respect that you so deeply deserve that you keep being denied by the unfair unjust world.

Examples? I guess not but will check now.

If you read TFA you would know it's an event with a 50 year tradition. With 700,000 survivors, Detroit still has some decent neighborhoods.

We already have a Detroit but we call it Scarborough. Things don't usually get hopping there until BBQ season kicks off then you can end up with multiple shootings at family events and for the true Detroit level experience sometimes innocent kids get caught in the crossfire. Really we have about all the violence we can handle right now.

Morales doesn't know how much more she can take.
"I've lived here for 25 years," she said of the neighborhood. "But it's getting too bad. Each year, it gets worse and worse."


not sure if tough or stupid.

<SIGH>

Detroit.....you just can't have anything nice....

Or just can't afford to leave...

Anyway I love the comments! Every senseless shooting seems to bring out the religious folks saying that everyone just needs more Jesus and the pro-gun folks trying to explain that guns are great (and don't take them away!!!) it's the people that are bad.
 
2014-05-05 03:04:52 PM  
Is it sad or racist that you can guess the race of the person shot by the headline of the article when it's Chicago or Detroit involved?
 
2014-05-05 03:23:27 PM  
Are there any days of the year that France didn't lose a battle?
 
2014-05-05 03:29:17 PM  
I really want to know who the bros are that need to be freed.

Well, no wonder they got shot!  What are they, the Hipster Brigade?  They use rifles you probably never heard of.

I am shocked! Shocked, I tell you to learn that a celebration would turn violent in Detroit!

I thought that was last Wednesday?

/His hand is on Algeron.

It ain't a party without one dead body.

I can't wait for that city to totally break down and they just start flinging poop at each other.
