Per capita Detroit always has been the most violent city.

Everywhere I travel . . . whenever I say I'm from Detroit I get: "did you grow up there?" I say yes, then get 'that look'!

Then, you HAVE to go into the "Oh, it's not as bad as they say!" presentation.

Saying your from Detroit is good for some looks and it can be quite entertaining if you play ir right.

It seemed like for a while that someone was getting murdered everyday in Detroit about a month or so back.

You can use the "Detroit Advantage" sometimes, like "I'm from Deee-troit, you gonna mess with me???? I'll slice you!!!!


or since I am not from the Detroit area, I just say Grand Haven, but living in the Metropolitan Detroit area.

don't look that violent from this perspective does it?

I think if all those would be murderers would get out on the water, it would sooth their souls.
Works for us don't it
