if a house is condemned as unsanitary or unsafe to the public it can be demolished

Well it goes something like this, steal the windows, steal the floor tiles, steal the furniture, steal the paint, steal the rugs, steal the floorboards, steal the patio, steal the chimney, steal the sidewalk, steal the walling, steal anything else not nailed down, steal what is nailed down, graffiti what remains and then light it on fire. Then in a month nature eats what's left.

Beautiful.

I feel like there should be a show directed exactly how "How it's made" is directed but call it"How it's disassembled" I'd like that.

City went broke, means any funds that the municipal government owed the people vanished such as whatever they had for savings and retirement, expecially if they are a city employee. Cops, paramedics, and other necessary emergency personnel are working for free until the situation is resolved (at least most of them are until backpay becomes available). Its basically the wall street and bank bankruptcies that happened several years ago, only with a city instead of private firms.

I live in Detroit. It used to be a very nice part, however the past ten years have been incredibly hard on my neighborhood.

Back in the 90's, my entire neighborhood was flourishing with plenty of neighbors and kids. Not a single abandoned house on my entire block. Now, my entire neighborhood is destroyed. There are abandoned houses everywhere, where my best friends were growing up in my neighborhood. Tons of arsons have occurred in the past 5 years, and the only people still on our block from the old times are us. It really makes me depressed when I think of just how badly my neighborhood has deteriorated over the last ten years.

I wish I had pictures of my old neighborhood laying around somewhere so I could do this just to show how devastating the change has been. The reason this all happened was because of a nearby place called "Herman Gardens" which was essentially low-income housing ghetto, closing down. All of the people migrated to better neighborhoods and rotted them from the inside.

One of the contributing factors in my opinion was the way they kept civil servants in the city at all times. Until the late 90's, it was mandatory for all city employees to live within the city. That means off-duty cops, fire department, office workers, ect. lived in the same area they serviced. They took more pride in their job, and they paid their taxes. When that law was revoked in 98 or so, all hell broke loose. They moved to Lavonia, Farmington, Westland suburbs just outside the city limits and stopped contributing to the tax pool. For some reason, the remaining populus started to become a bunch of retarded self-centered assholes, and didn't pay taxes either. You can't pay for cops if you don't have the money. Crime skyrocketed, high-raking local officials became slum-lords, stealing what they could from the working class and giving it to their friends. Couple those factors with the collapse of the American Auto Industry, and you've got yourself a regular ol' **** sandwich. Chrysler, Ford, and GM all had their headquarters in Detroit, the home of 'Automation Alley.' If you are really curious, especially in very recent history, it would be good for you to look into Quame Kilpatrick, research the ongoing corruption cases, and the deterioration of the American Automobile market.

Some interesting articles.

I'd have thought with Chrysler being a company under GM it'd be moving both or neither, also, after a Google i've seen the headline 'GM, Ford, Chrysler pledge $26 million to save Detroit ...' Good news?

yah, they're really only concerned with the downtown area though. a lot of people are complaining about that, but the thing is that's how you attract more major businesses. if you go near heart plaza, and the surrounding area, it's absolutely beautiful. but anything outside that it starts to become a shanty town basically. things are looking up, but we have a long road ahead. we didn't get into this situation overnight, and it's not gonna get fixed that way either.

Recently? Like I said, it was the closing of a low-income ghetto housing that did our neighborhood in. They were forced to move in to nicer neighborhoods and rot them from the inside out. Overall, our city is run by incredibly corrupt individuals. Our mayor took taxpayer money and bought cars, threw parties at his mansion, ****** his secretary and sexted her with a GOVERNMENT issued cell phone, and drove our entire city into bankruptcy. We don't even get bulk garbage pick up anymore because of how bad he screwed our city over.

I'm having a hard time believing a city primarily ran and lived in by upstanding African Americans without interference from the white man is crumbling and filled with crime. It's rare to see any area inhabited by black people completely destroyed.

I found it really interesting, enough so that I watched it pretty much in one sitting (And I usually have 2 YouTube tabs, a FunnyJunk and a Facebook tab to switch through because I can't concentrate or some ****). It mentions stuff like how liquid chlorine in chemical plants would expand because it's not being cooled after the power goes out then poisons huge areas, and how pet dogs will form into packs and start hunting, stuff like that. Worth a look, definitely. Even goes into long term effects, like how whale populations will boom with no more ships making noise to ruin mating calls, and new breeds of canine from un-neutered house dogs mating with wolves, how long it will take before all signs of humanity will last Turns out stainless steel sinks and mobile phones will las longer than concrete skyscrapers and iron monuments, like the Statue of Liberty and of course how nature reclaims cities. 9/10 documentary, would learn again
