Another idea was to renovate the existing housing and improve the environment and economy. In Glasgow this involved:
Rewiring the houses and fitting central heating
Fitting double glazing
Secure entry-phone systems on tenement closes
The outsides of tenements were cleaned by sand-blasting
Combining two small flats into a larger one
Improving the environment by landscaping
Building or improving the social facilities such as clubs and medical centres
Encouraging new business and industry to set up in the areas with grants and loans
I've heard many propose that the city declare marshal law bringing in the military, on one side it would be nice to see the military bring order to a city

Detroit is nearly 83% black.
And they also have one of the largest black police forces in the Country with roughly 73% of all sworn Officers being black and many non black officers making claims of racism and discrimination.
Frankly I don't think color has much to do with anything.
If it was an all white city with roughly 50% unemployment, you would still see the same level of crime and violence.
People have turned to drugs to make a living.
Since drugs are illegal, it is up to the dealers to protect their own supplies.
We saw the same thing in inner cities during prohibition around the time of the Great Depression.

You want the honest truth? The council is made up of imbeciles with low double digit IQ. They yell at each other in school grade level ebonics. All why they pad and protect the outrages compensation they and their friends receive.
Can anyone expect retards like these to run a large industrial city? It's madness.
* Oh...and it sounds like that NDAA measure could be useful for one tiny little rendition of a certain scumbag from the Cayman Islands, eh? Why should being a member of the Church cover him for fraud and theft? I'm asking simply because you say you live in the area and so would bring perspective few if any of the rest of us have for this. ?
"Within five years of its opening, it was $36 million in debt to the Detroit archdiocese because of the loans. The amount rose to more than $54 million today, a portion of which included an average of $65,000 per month for upkeep, which the archdiocese continued to pay even while it marketed the center for sale during the past 18 months.
Unfortunately, Maida made the loans without consultation with the priests or laity of the archdiocese. It was only after the NCR reported on the debt in a February 2006 story that he acknowledged the financial scope of the loans in a letter to the archdiocese. Maida's successor, Allen Vigneron, has been left to pick up the pieces."
