Enter Detroit At Your Own Risk!

Tyler Durden's picture




 

"Detroit is America's most violent city; its homicide rate is the highest in the country." Detroit Police department's "Enter At Your Own Risk" warning to citizens came at a rally yesterday as they fear under-staffing in the midst of what CBS reports as "the explosion in violent crime" leaves police in "deplorable, dangerous, and war-like conditions." While the union presses for more staff - or higher wages to compensate for the risk - we are sure Snake Plissken can be relied upon to rescue GM's CEO if he needs it.

Detroit was let go to a point, where it is now. All theses millions in aid we send to this country this country. Put it to work right in our own cities.

Its alot easier to support the cities before they become so bad, that any point of return is almost impossible or finianically not reasonable.

We need to support local cities, put aid and work into cities to keep them from become beyond repair.

I had to come back to this thread to throw this in it would actually be a win - win as I see it.  Detroit having been ruined by Democrats and Unions.

To The Detroit PD: Disband And Go Home

 

I'm done.

Officers handed out fliers saying when you come to Detroit you "enter at your own risk." They also urged people to vote yes on Proposal 2.

"We're not discouraging people from coming, I love the city, I want them to realize we don't have enough man hours," said union president Joe Duncan. "I don't think the city is going to get same officer 8 hours a day as you do for 12 hours a day."

Here's the answer I have for the cops: Go home, disband and die of starvation under an overpass in the upcoming Detroit winter.  The people will take care of this themselves.

$420 million dollars for cops is more than enough to cover 800,000 people. If it turns out that it's not, for whatever reason, then the simple solution is that cops didn't do their job and the job needs to go back to the people, who should be happy to do it on ther own.  For $420 million one time every single citizen in Detroit can be provided a gun and enough ammunition to hole every single gang-banger a dozen times or more.

This act by the cops is nothing other than extortion, exactly as the mob practices.  The correct response to extortion by any mob is never to knuckle under to it -- rather it it is to meet force with maximum lawful resistance and make clear that the extorting party will cut that crap out -- and that you are not making a request.

In short the people of Detroit need to take back their 2nd Amendment right and begin carrying firearms openly and everywhere, as the Constitution provides, making clear that the city belongs to them and not to the thugs, irrespective of what particular gang affiliation -- Crips, Bloods, god-knows-whats -- or blue -- the gang happens to be dressed in.

If the cops don't like it then they can quit and the citizens can take over.  I suspect the streets will get quiet real fast should they do so, and then the "big lie" of the cop shop will become evident -- they're ineffective, they're overpaid and they're unnecessary.

Enough is enough.

Cops, Police were one of the firs welfare/Big gov agencies.

It was once expected of a man, of any station or face, to protect himself and his property.
If you had a lot of property or a large business, you hired people. If you couldn't afford it, you sold stuff.either way, it was your problem. Not "society's".
If you were single, be social and make friends, or marry.
A couple of years with out police would be great. The scum would really abandoned their walnut brains to their appetites and would be gun'd down and killed, saving much money.
prisons would empty. Courthouses would be dusty and sleepy, open but a week a month.
Cops could release themselves from the public teat and become night watchmen at minimum wage.
The cop, judge, lawyer, Sheriff, prison industry loves criminals and it's true duty is to protect crimanals from us( as we would kill, shoot and hang the criminals and no longer need legions of overpaid dullards.

Most cultural Marxist twits really need to grow up and grow a pair; because only a fool would think it’s whether Detroit is run by a Democrat or Republican or whether the police department gets another 50 cents an hour, it’s really as easy as black and white. Simple math: third world people = third world city/country.

They should all be fired, city government dissolved, pensions go bye bye too.  One less layer of bureaucracy and taxation.

City governments aren't needed anymore.   County governments can do the job just fine.

County government, sheriff, deputies, and courts are constitutional.

City government, police, and courts aren't.  City government is a martial law jurisdiction in peacetime, prohibited in America ...or used to be prohibited.

REMEMBER

The Detroit Chief of Police needs a distraction: he is accused (by a fellow officer, (female) who kept the used condom as evidence) of a sex for advancement arrangement. The timing of the warning is beyond suspicious. 

besides, unless this is a ploy for more tax financing (could that be possible!?!) all it says is that the Detroit cops are not much help in preventing murder. Bet they have really tight gun laws too...so much for the police being helpful...maybe encouraging all Detroit people to get and learn to use firearms might help. According to John Lott (More Guns Less Crime) this WILL work.

But I suspect that the warning is more ploy than what it tries to appear to be, a sincere admonition.

Godbee has been suspended over allegations that he had an affair with a subordinate, Internal Affairs officer Angelica Robinson, ABC News reports.

 

The alleged relationship was revealed when Robinson, 37, tweeted about her involvement with 44-year-old Godbee — who is married — after she learned he was at a San Diego police officers’ conference with a third woman, according to WXYZ-TV.

Robinson, who is also married, told WXYZ that her relationship with Godbee began in 2011 when they began communicating on Facebook and later started “hooking up.” Robinson said Godbee should “absolutely” lose his position as police chief.

.....

This is not the first time Godbee has faced allegations of inappropriate conduct.  In 2010, he replaced Police Chief Warren Evans after Evans was accused of a relationship with police officer Monique Patterson, but text messages soon surfaced that suggested Godbee also had an affair with Patterson, WXYZ reports.

If so, why'd she hold on to the condom?

MAYBE she fucked him and then held him hostage- what is HR's policy towards interdepartmental romances?- to advance her or suffer the consequence of this accusation.

I am a female. Because I was the primary bread winner, I got taken to the cleaners. I got the house but I also got ALL the debt. He walked away without a house, but without debt too. I let it happen, I felt bad about wanting out. He still went bankrupt later because that's how he rolled. It was one of the reasons I had to get out.  If he did not spend so much, I could have handled it, but he spent waaay more than he earned and did not see that as a problem. I am currently debt free. The point being, it is not about "women" taking your half, it is about the structure of the situation. Sometimes you just gotta buy your way out. Freedom ain't free.

I don't get all the Gully hate just here.  This is a fairly reasonable assertion.  If you want to test your preps, or decide on prioritization, keeping the situation in Detroit in mind is useful.  Much of the rest of the nation will likely look like that in ten years, assuming no real change in policy at all levels.

Detroit is the example why survivalists in large cities consider "bugging out" a survival strategy.

Part of surviving is avoiding high risk situations. Like Detroit.

I agree, it's a good example to keep in mind when planning. All the more reason to live in a rural area, even if it implodes you still have way better odds against a few people than thousands.

Yes, because the best time to plan an alternate route is when the hallway to the main exit of your house is on fire.  Besides, doing a mock bug-out drill doubles as a family adventure.  I've seen some really awesome things stepping off the beaten path that I would have never experienced otherwise.

Prepping is a way of operating, not something you buy in a magazine.

Wht is weird is if see recent pictures - more and more of Detroit is being leveled.  It is almost like Chernoybl where the humans leave and animals return.  Trees and foilage are taking over old abandoned homes and buildings.

The city is a f***ing poster child for liberalism, unions, high taxation, Affirm Action and corruption.

Well, I happened to think that suggesting that one purposely put oneself and one's family in harm's way just to test one's preparations for emergencies was rather specious and idiotic. 

Do airplane pilots purposely crash their planes just to see if their training to survive such a situation was sufficient?  Does it make sense to advocate that they do so?

I don't think it is reasonable to presume that the comment was intended to actually encourage a mass migration of survivalists to Detroit.

Stackers should recognize the difference between what is printed on the face of a thing, and what a thing is, and value accordingly.

Point taken. But realize, 'preppers' are everywhere, including Detroit. Probably blend in and mind their own business as much as possible. Everyone living there currently is a 'survivalist'. Maybe they experienced the deterioration through a generation, got stuck, or know nothing else and think it's normal, but whatever the reason - there IS some kind of social structure, ugly as it looks to some...

No matter where you are, when the situation changes, you can buckle down and stay, or figure out a new plan - either way, 'stacking wealth', avoiding debt, and acquiring 'tools and skills' to protect your family are GOOD. In the end, you can only do so much.

Not that bad an idea, actually.

For little to nothing, you could buy a whole neighborhood in that craphole.  That would suck if you were the only one to do so, but if you were joined by a couple thousand like-minded individuals, it might not be such a bad deal for anyone involved.

If I had the money, I'd buy Detroit, and turn it over to a militia group, with a provision that I am granted residence there in a bugout situation.  Sounds dumb, but maybe it's not such a crazy idea- those old auto factories would make decent weapon factories, and it's already fairly clear that the police couldn't do much to stop it.

More likely than not, once the riffraff were cleared out, the holdouts would thank you for restoring some semblance of order.

Keep dreaming. Every politically correct organization in the country would make your life a living hell. How dare you take advantage of those poor disadvantaged Detroit residents by moving in and changing things for the better?!

This touches on a much larger aspect of this failed nation. You don't really own your land in the USSA, nor do you have the authority to create a new voting district to represent yourself and your community outside the corrupt system already in place.

Bzzzzzzt. Nope.

Do you know how much in back taxes are owed on those "$1200" houses?

They have county AND Detroit city tax on them. You must pay these back taxes to take possesion.

Taxes on a "craphole" Detroit house are over $6000 yearly.
No matter what the condition is. The taxman MUST be paid first.
The peon is then allowed to fix his house up with whatever is left over.

Not such a good deal now eh?
