Detroit - deadliest year in four decades, 411 dead on the streets! 'We've lost respect for life':

......"Even as violent crime rates in the U.S. fell for the fifth consecutive year in 2011, the homicide rate in Detroit rose to a level higher than nearly 40 years ago when the city was known as the Murder Capital, the Detroit News reported. The same day the city's official crime statistics were announced, a Detroit woman was charged with fatally stabbing her 8-year-old daughter and a cab driver was killed in a double shooting on the city’s northwest side'........

[url=http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/04/16352612-weve-lost-respect-fo... thing that Detroit, Chicago, NYC and all the other major cities have all those wonderful "gun laws" in place. I would imagine that just a few more "good laws" will cause the murder rate to drop pretty well to zero shortly![/url]

Several other American cities' crime rates would indicate the same, WC.

Strong Gun Control = More Gun Crimes.

History shows again as to what we are headed for. Personally I like what Sam Colt said." Be not afraid of any man, no matter what his size, when danger threatens call on me and I will equalize"

Gun phobic liberals point to

Gun phobic liberals point to New York City as an example of how gun restrictions against conceal and carry have helped reduce the homicide rate . What liberals refuse to discuss is the aggressive "stop and frisk" approved by Mayor Bloomberg and directed at the minority population, especially young black and Hispanic males. If they find them armed they literally send them up the river... To prison.

Strangely, the ACLU is silent on the police tactics. And of course, the rich liberal "elites" have armed security guards or rare permits to carry. Not so in Detroit and Chicago, though I'm sure Rahman Emanual would love to institute S and F if he could get it approved over minority objections. Can you imagine the out cry if such a thing was done in Portland or Lewiston?

Now Detroit is not only

Now Detroit is not only infested with Liberal/Marxist goons, they got them some bedbugs! Seems somehow kind of fitting seeing that both groups are sucking the lifeblood out of the area.

Bedbugs

It gets better. Detroit

It gets better. Detroit residents are promising an uprising to oppose the state takeover of the city's finances (and likely a close look at the corruption within). People are being warned to stock up on food and water.

[quote]Councilman Kwame Kenyatta and a packed room of Detroiters warned today of an impending revolt against state intervention, urging residents to stock up on canned food and supplies.
“Even the Bloods in the hood fight for their territory,” Kenyatta said during a 20-minute monologue on the civil rights struggle at today’s city council meeting. “You are going to have to drag me out of here for me to leave.”[/quote]

If they don't want intervention, just let them go bankrupt.

It is not just Obama but

It is not just Obama but progressives/RINO's on both sides who have caused this. Liberals just get you there quicker.

I graduated from Detroit

I graduated from Detroit Cathdral High School in 1961. At that time, my neighborhood was mixed race with blacks, Hispanics, whites and Syrians living next door to each other in relative peace and quiet. It was common back in those days to get a job at Ford, GM or Chrysler with a high school diploma and a recommendation from a neighbor or relative.

After I moved to upstate New York, I literally watched my old neighborhood go up in flames on television in the early 1970s. Then factories started to close, large retail stores shut down and the wagon-riders started to outnumber the wagon-pullers.

When some of my old classmates suggested a 50th class reunion, many said they'd attend - if it wasn't held in Detroit.

"lost respect for life". Mike

"lost respect for life".
Mike L. just described what really happened. They lost respect for a way of life that was considered a normal life , using all the inflammatory causes
as an excuse. It just happened in a more intense manner in Detroit and other places.

As this social breakdown

As this social breakdown slowly spreads from these ghettos we will see the once proud nation collapse into chaos and civil strife. Until society once again understands that respect and self responsibility the hall marks of a successful and thriving society nothing will change. God save us as a nation, but He may just let it destroy itself and think it only right.
