    I think you had it spot on in post #172, further I think that had this case been tried in say, a more rural setting in Michigan, chances are he would have gotten off...Everyone in Michigan knows what a lawless cesspool Detroit is, and has been for decades.

    Just to set the record straight: he did not live in Detroit.
    He lived in Dearborn Heights.
    A suburban community of about 57,000 persons.

    The homes in the area average about $120,000.

    The community is about 80 percent white and 9 percent black.

    Well, I'm not sure why you are throwing out real estate statistics - but the average home price I got was $76K (again, not that that means anything).

    As far as whether or not they lived in Detroit - Dearborn Heights is only about 15 miles from Detroit, so it's not like it's a stretch from the filth and the crime from Detroit to make it's way 15 whole minutes to Dearborn Heights. And Detroit is 82% black, 9% white.

    So yeah, while technically this crime didn't happen in Detroit, it really happened in Detroit.

    And Dearborn is about 12 miles from Detroit and Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills are about about 20 miles from Detroit ...and no those cities are not Detroit.

    So if they aren't inside the city limits, you don't consider them Detroit?

    Is your argument that all crime in Detroit stays inside this neat little box called Detroit City Limits? And no crime whatsoever happens outside those City Limits? Cuz that's what it sounds like to me.

    Well I happen to live in the suburbs.

    And I do not expect , nor do we have much crime in my suburban neighborhood which is about 20 minutes from Detroit.

    The crime rate in Dearborn Heights is about avg. and about half that of Detroit

    Crime rate in Dearborn Heights, Michigan (MI): murders, rapes, robberies, assaults, burglaries, thefts, auto thefts, arson, law enforcement employees, police officers statistics

    Murders and robberies are about 20 times as frequent (per 1,000 population) in Detriot
