Robbie, I don't want to get into a pissing match over semantics. There are still people of different colors in Detroit proper. The only reason for residency is cheap housing, and for middle eastern shopkeepers, customers who will pay exorbitant prices for goods, and when you add high car insurance, insane housing insurance, and ever present danger, most people just don't see the equation as viable.
For decades the strategy of luring young people downtown with walking friendly city features is a failure. Why? Once the young, cool people get robbed, or burglarized, they see the cool image is just that, an image not reality.
Fishhead has a point. Although, removing police would expose the problem, in a year there wouldn't be much left for anyone to return to.
