    "The Detroit Police Officers Association is warning citizens and out-of-towners that they enter Detroit at their own risk, saying that the "grossly understaffed" and overworked police force cannot adequately protect the public in the increasingly violent city."

    Detroit does have one thing going for it, it's not Flint! Flint Michigan is almost always America's most dangerous city, with Detroit being second.

    I worked in Flint some years ago. Wasn't a nice place back then, even the cops carried slim jims to break into cars. Sometimes 'cause they got a call from someone that left their keys in the cars, sometimes for other reasons.

    ahhhh, I love the mitten. Just prepping for the end of the world as we know it. (Just to let you know, it started in Michigan over a decade ago).

    Don't worry, It's not so bad. Curfews in cities are for all you folk that don't live here. Trust me, It's for your own protection.

    Do people still go down to Greektown?
    There was also an Irish pub we used to hit every once in awhile - maybe 15 years ago.
