Sorry Detroit, but here’s yet another dismal statistic… Most dangerous city based on 2010 statistics from the FBI. 1,111 violent crimes per 100,000 residents! Great, just what we need… something for all the gangbangers to be proud of. Pretty soon, they’ll have driven out the rest of the residents of Detroit, and have completed Detroit’s transformation into the world’s largest urban prairie.
Another Devil’s Night in Detroit brings another round of arson, although fire were reported to be down in numbers this year. Only 18 fires were reported according to the Detroit News, down form 169 last year. Wow, what a huge decrease in fires, right? Some might say it was the 50,000 volunteers patrolling the streets that night. Me, I say they’ve already burned everything! Had to say it. But seriously, that’s great to hear. It’s just a shame what great efforts the city must go through just to keep people from burning shit.
Here’s a couple of videos to watch showing the action of Devil’s Night 2011:
Finally, after nearly 2 years of technical problems and overall procrastination, I’ve finally edited my footage from December 2009/Summer 2010 into “A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4″. It’s officially done and posted on youtube. Enjoy!
Finally, nearly 2 years after most of it was filmed, I have gotten around to getting this video done. As mentioned before, I had some issues with my new computer, and was not able to transfer the footage from my ancient camcorder on to my hard drive. Well, I could transfer it, but the quality was shit. A few weeks ago I visited a buddy of mine who transferred the footage onto an external HDD using his computer and this worked, the quality of the footage was completely intact.
I have just finished editing the whole video and it looks great, I think you will all like it. One thing I did this time around was try to pack in as many clips as possible, and minimize time that is wasted from excessively long scenes, and sped up slow moving shots. I have a few final touches to make, and then it will be uploaded to youtube and posted here. So keep an eye out for it in the next day or two!
