You almost make this sound like a Bad Thang!Detroit and Flint make the top two most violent for the second year in a row !!!
I have no desire to be the victim of even a minority of the violence that occurs in many metropolitan areas.i strongly suppect that the vast majority of violance is between gang members or drug ripoffs. thats the case in the large city i live near.
i have absollutely no idea why someone would live in the city anyway.
i live on a custom built home with a couple pole barns on 25 acres. it's my dream home. living in an old run down house in the city has no appeal.
keep track of the homicides in your city. you will find they are all drug ripoffs or gang related except for domestic homicides.
i was a cop in a medium size dept, the above was the case except for two instances over 26 yrs.
