I watch videos of people exploring abandoned buildings and just showing what it's really like in Detroit, and I'm just like
Whole neighbourhoods abandoned & burned, office towers abandoned, police stations abandoned.... It's like the walking dead.

BUT as a whole cops do not get paid enough for what they do. I mean really think about it. Kim Kardashian makes millions of dollars for doing NOTHING. Bruce/Caitlyn was probably paid thousands if not millions to tell his story while people who teach, protect, clean, serve get paid shit. It is not fair. I am going to start singing songs from Les Miserables or something
Your family's story sounds eerily similar to mine. My parents also grew up in Detroit, and also left asap, right after high school (1950). I've been there to visit extended family members, but 98% of them have moved away as well. It deeply saddens me that Detroit has gone down the toilet like it has; it's lost.

Oh by the way, my family's old neighborhood is predominantly Muslim now.

Bottom line is, Detroit is broke. The Democrats and unions have destroyed that city. There's no denying that. I wonder how many pensions Detroit is paying retired cops. It wouldn't surprise me if Detroit is writing more checks to retired cops than to serving cops.

Did you know rob666's province is also broke beyond repair and it's often called the Detroit of Canada because of high taxes, bad health care, lousy job market, crooked politicians and bloated bureaucracies everywhere you turn. Yet the police still make good coin there.
