    We don’t have a crime problem. We have a Savage Negro Beast problem coupled with a serious drug problem, with its inherent violence.

    • Ronr

      Wow, great post genius , now go get a negro and tell him that hero.

      • hardh8

          What you should realize is the crime ridden cities are run by white liberals and they are a mixed bag of white black Hispanic ,the white media run all information going into those neighborhoods with white liberal money it’s not what you want to hear but those are poor minority communities , They have no money it’s the white liberals power base.

    The number one problem facing us today is that people don’t fear God anymore. It is going to be too bad for those who don’t fear God, because a terrifying day will come for each one of them who fails to repent.

    • me

      Alot of these people are the ones who will never work to have anything. they take the easy way in life killing and robbing.

      • real talk 1

        The liberals play political play ground they wouldn’t have it any other way.

    A Fool says in his Heart, There is no GOD! & in this Country, many of You are FOOLS, According to OUR GOD’S HOLY WORD !
    That being Said, Those Locations listed above are Known to some as ” The Devil’s Playground “, Except their Play Ends with one or more being Murdered!
    In Saginaw, Flint & Bay City, Crime Goes mostly Unreported & in many Cases, Unanswered by the Police!This Poor Boy down in TEXAS, use to live in a Town, West on M-81 & had to Go to Those Towns looking for work. Let me tell you, It’s Hard to live their if your a Decent Brother, & If your White, Good Luck. Leave your attitude at home or bring your own Body Bag!

  • me

    • Ron r

  • Sarah Conner

    Yeah…no shockers here…da’troit,mi. no.1 on the thug capital in the U.S.,that’s not a badge to wear with honor…it is truly sad to see a city,whose history is so rich in so many ways,go down in flames as it has…not one of the demonrats finer experiments and they just keep repeating the same experiments over and over with the same results…you just can’t fix stupid…

    • KennyLLC

      Three sections of Detroit, in fact. Rampant unionization, affirmative action, and welfare will fix the problem.
      O:-)

      • Robert Messmer

        I counted 4, not just the top 3 but also number 7. Gee maybe they should take guns away from all the law-abiding citizens. Oh wait, they already did.

  • KennyLLC

    Uhmm…duhhh.

  • Michael Shreve

    Both the DEMOGRAPHICS and the POLITICAL rule of these neighborhoods are similar.

  • Dave

    That list should be longer. You evidently haven’t did all the research. Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio should be on the list.
