Sounds like Detroit needs the national guard. The last thing you want to do is attack the United States military. If its this bad, a state of emergency needs to be declared and we need to go in and wipe out the gangs
Seriously, if its that bad, request the national guard and declare marshal law.
The gangs are a domestic threat. They need to be eliminated. They need to know they have no power. The United States military will and can break them. They can give up in peace or die, either way.edit on 7-10-2012 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)

Hell, buy a street and get all your mates to move in.
I reckon you could clean up one street at a time if you're all of the right mind set (and well armed).
In theory the idea sounds wonderful.
The main problem is, what are you all going to do for a living when you get there?
The main problem there is unemployment. The manufacturing is gone. There just are no jobs.
The unemployment is the main thing driving the criminal activity.
That is scary, when you consider that unemployment is spreading across the country, and more and more companies are shipping jobs overseas.
How long will it be until most major cities turn into Detroits?
I suspect this has something to do with the cops wanting prop 2 passed here in MI. We are bombarded right now with ads showing teachers, firefighters and cops telling us we need to vote yes on 2. This is BS quit spreading the crap.

I was watching "Parking Wars" which chronicles the day to day struggle of detroits parking enforcers and from what I have seen, their lives are at risk every single work day.
Detroit is becoming the Wild West
New Orleans and Richmond, Virginia had the highest murder rates in the country in 2009, according to the FBI. Likewise, Anchorage, Alaska, and Abilene, Texas, which are not among the cities with the most overall crime, still had the second- and third-highest rates of forcible rapes in 2009, behind No. 1 Minneapolis.

Just more proof that the "Police State" is on it's way. Look at the violence in Chicago! This is all planned, and just watch the American public bow down to their masters when they bring in the military to "Protect" them!
Just look at this earlier post that was put up by ATS member "jude11".....
Military Employed For Crowd Control At College Football Game This Saturday
While we all fight over partisan nonsense, they are ushering in the control grid right under our pathetic noses! If you think Romney is going to stop the progress of what is already in place, ya'll are badly mistaken!
It's a coming folks!

I personally feel like things are being blown out of proportion.
All these places were worse than they are now back in the 70s and early 80s. New York was terrible.
Now I don't mean to say its not bad, and something clearly needs to be done.
But I feel handing out fliers warning people away from the city is misguided.
People who grew up in the ghetto during those periods know things are bad now but they also know how much worse things have been.
With that said, it can't hurt to hand out fliers so I'm not really opposed to it, but I just see some things being thrown around. If Detroit is like a "Third World City" now what were these places back then?
