#5 Michigan

In the US, Michigan has the fifth-highest rate of violent crimes. In Michigan, as in many other states, the most violent and serious crimes are concentrated in the state’s largest cities. Detroit, the state’s most populated city, had 1,088 violent crimes per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to the state’s less than 500 violent crimes per 100,000. 

In 2020, about 40% of the violent crimes in the state will have occurred in the Detroit metro area. The number of homicides in Detroit rose to 328 in 2020, up 17% from the previous year and marking the first time it has exceeded 300 since 2016.

Over the past year, violent crime rates have increased by 9.3% statewide. However, since 2009, the majority of the state’s violent crime rates have decreased. While violent crimes have decreased from 49,000 to 43,000, the number of robberies has decreased by 50%, from 11,522 to 5,350. As of 2019, there were 28,572 fewer burglaries than there were in 2010, which was 74,345 burglaries.

  1. I lived in Detroit at a time when you could go to bed leaving your door open. ( we had to because we had no air conditioning) To add to the data we had no central heat, no hot water tank, no telephone, no TV. no carpets. In general we were all poor. what we had was a neighborhood where everyone knew everyone else. A fact we could rely upon was we never knew who was going to be sitting at our table for dinner. My Da was one of the fortunate to have a job. he was a ditch digger for Wayne county. once a week he would bring home two twenty pound bags of potatoes. These helped feed the people who struggled in those times. My mother had a peddle powered sewing machine that helped keep our clothes in good repair. she spent many hours repairing and reworking clothing for the hand-me downs we all wore. no designer anything. yet with all the poverty crime was low. it was usually done by the people that were vagrants and the bums that were always begging for a meal. Growing up I cant remember a murder that happened in our neighborhood. Today we are separated by our TV cellphones and air conditioning. we dont know who lives two doors down from us. I remember people out walking and talking to each other as they would stop by each house in turn to drop off a piece of clothing to be fitted to a child now grown out of it and now used by a sibling. No we didnt toss out things. we repaired them. today things are made to break and repurchased again and again. We had the same refrigerator for twenty years (one of the first on the block). Today we are told that we deserve more because life isnt fair. we deserve a job because of the color of our skin or our gender or lack of it. To demand that we have a skill or actually show up for work or on time is raciest. We have a right to health care and free schooling. has anyone figured out what will happen when the amount of people receiving free stuff outpaces the ones that actually work? well I see it. crime raises. murder raised because demands for respect and equality are not met. we see kids killed for a set of sneakers, or designer shirt. Somehow our clothing makes us who we are. or that is what the perception has become. our kids steal it because they are told it is somehow owed to them because of skin color or gender. I had three jobs at the age of ten. I was rich at payday which was a total of five dollars. half that went to my mother for food. Today government prevents small business from hiring kids. they grow up with no work ethics again believing that they are owed a job that must pay top dollar for little work. When we look closely at the problems of society many are created by government. Many will die as our government collapse’s. Devastating disasters? its coming are you ready?———— I Grampa
