There are many good ones left. In that area, it is mainly only the older folks that I would consider good. But in other areas, there are many good people, and always, wherever I go, the older the people, the better set their compasses are.
But Detroit is a literal hell hole. It has the highest illiteracy rate in the coutry, the highest unemployment rate and some of the lowest services rates. I don't know if anybody got to catch the Detroit episode of Inspector America...man was he pissed off at the condition of everything. He ven threw my power company under the bus for the recent Detroit Power Line fires. Entire blocks burned down, masses of blocks all at once.
That crap was not the power companies fault. The city closed down the alleys to try and combat crime...they restricted the utility access. The city of Detroit mandated the 4.8 electical circuit as the only one that can be run in the city by law. It was made law because in the early part of the 1900's it was the most reliable.
But as the years went on, it has become the deadliest system in the world. It is a looped based circuit. That means that all power can run to any point in the circuit in any direction. Wires go down, and the power is still on as long as it is still connected somehwere in the circuit. Today, there are down wires everywhere and nobody knows about them until somebody gets fried. It also kills the city because it produces a giant city wide brownout effect. There will be 10 transformers on a loop feeding 50 houses. 2 or 3 of those transformers get knocked off line and suddenly all 50 houses do not get enough voltage to run the motors in their appliances....50 houses with junk. You see new equipment thrown out all over the city from this very reason.
I found a dead hooker maybe 6-7 years ago down there. There was a serial murderer running around killing prostitutes and they never publicized it until they caught him a few years ago. I have been shot at down there.
Another day I was down there working and all of a sudden this woman drives up to this house and pulls in the drive way. I go out back across the street to do my thing and I hear people start screaming and yelling. I come back out and the guy is kicking the crap out of this woman for something. He has like 10 guys with him and they areon the porch hooting and hollering. Then on my side of the street were 2 big fat ladies. They just kept sweeping the sidewalk like nothing was happening. I just had to leave and go the other way.
Nothing raises my ire more than seeing a man beating up a woman. But it was suicide to go help and suicide to call the cops and ever come back to that neigborhood.
But I have thousands of stories of good experiences with people too. They just don't get vocalized as much. I still believe that the majority of people are good and decent. And I study them for a living. Pole checking is just my cover to get in to see how these people really live.
