If you’re planning to visit the City of Detroit, keep this in mind: almost 16% of those murdered in D-Mecca are visitors from out of town. Makes ya wanna visit, huh? On the other hand, some in the know claim that the 66 homicides of out-of-towners in the city are people who visit to procure prostitutes and illegal drugs (though this is the standard attack by nativist Detroiters on the evil “suburbs” a/k/a White people). In that case, I don’t feel too bad for them. On the other hand, others are innocent, like the ten visitors to Detroit for the Super Bowl who were killed with 10,000 members of local, state, and federal law enforcement on the streets at the time and whose murders were never solved.
Data from the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office shows that 16 percent of homicides in Detroit in 2012 were out-of-towners.
Statistics released last week indicate of the 413 homicide victims in Detroit in 2012, 66 lived outside of the city. . . . “A lot of suburbanites come into Detroit to get narcotics and pick up prostitutes, and they end up in trouble,” retired Detroit Police Officer David Malhalab said.
“They’d get robbed, and when I’d ask them what they were doing in the neighborhood, they’d tell me they were looking for someone — but they couldn’t tell me a name or address. You knew what they were doing.”
Detroit had one of the nation’s highest murder rates in 2012, with 53 per 100,000 residents.
