It doesn't prove anything but it isn't being asked to.
Anyone watching this for the last few years know the tragedy those pics show. A tragedy it is too....

Detroit is a mess. I was there briefly as part of a layover on a Greyhound bus about a year and a half ago. The employees at the bus station wouldn't let you leave and walk a couple blocks to a restaurant because it wasn't safe... in broad daylight. If you wanted to go somewhere to eat (no food places in the bus station) you had to get a taxi to drive you. Even the sidewalks were blocked off from traffic because the buildings were crumbling and there were falling concrete concerns.
The entire city is literally falling apart. There's war zones that are in better condition than Detroit.

5.Even though the population fell 63% since 1950, the municipal workforce fell by just 40%, adding to the strain on public finances.
You really BOLDED #5 like it proved something? So for every 1% of population lost there should be 1% jobs gone? Which jobs?
And how would that thelp that UER you mentioned?
Dying to hear that...
