Unfortunately, it isn't the good people who work hard/or who need jobs who get the attention. It is the criminals who get most of the attention.

True and it is funny how people seem to forget about the very nice neighborhoods that are still stable within the city too.

Detroit is a hardworking city that works to get to the top but practically all you see on the news is the bad.

Most people in the city have a close family member "in the system", and there's only 550 people giving the city a bad name? And how exactly is Detroit a "hard working" city? Give me some examples. Seems to me it's a pretty lazy city. Especially considering the high school graduation rate. I find it hard to believe that so many kids are running amok because their parents are too busy at work to keep them out of trouble.

It's hard to tell by just reading.....Was the original post satire?

Being realistic, there area many working famlies and working neighborhoods in Detroit, but there are also families that live below the poverty line and struggle too, their children fall under and what are the parents to do, I don't know, but I do no that there are families in Detroit that work as hard as any in the Suburbs and some people might look at Detroit and only see the poverty, the crime, and the corruption in the city. I guess there are two ways to look at this.

And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous
with the wicked?
Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also
destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are
therein?
