Devil’s Night 2009 Stats Released!

The final numbers are out for this year’s Devil’s Night(which the city is trying to call Angel’s Night from now on): 119 fires in the 3 day Devil’s Night period. This is down 12% from last years total of 136 fires. The effort can be accredited to the Detroit Fire and Police departments, Department Of Homeland Security, and 30,000 individual volunteers, compared to over 50,000 volunteers last year.

It amazes me that there are still those who wish to destroy the city they live in, and then criticize people like me for filming it and posting it to the internet. The finger should be pointed at those destroying the city, not filming it… am I right?

Detroit: A Dying City

This was aired on CBC March 30th, 2009. It shows how bad things are in the city of Detroit right now. Thanks to cherifa123 for sending me the link to the video on google video, which I was then able to download and upload on Youtube.

These are the main points that I retained from watching this video:

-A man who hunts raccoons and sells the meat to make a living.
-120 square kilometers of the city are vacant, an area larger than than city of Vancouver.
-22% unemployment(which is now actually around 29%).
-Homes selling for $1.
-Median home price is $6000 and falling.
-Wild animals are moving back into the city… pheasants, coyotes, even beavers.

In another video that can be seen on CBC’s website, they state that 40% of the downtown area is vacant. This is exactly why I say that most of Detroit is ghetto, numbers don’t lie.
