When you try to answer the question "So, How Bad Is It In Detroit?" Your answer may just be underestimating how bad it really is there.
Looking at the interactive map provided by the Detroit News of the reported murders and shootings that have taken place in Detroit since May 2012 is rather sobering. The dots indicating a murder or shooting cover, well, just about the entire city.
Even zooming in makes the city look like it has a case of multicolored measles, with no vaccine in sight.
But some bright news is set for the future.
After decades of neglect under one -party rule and being quite unable to account where millions of dollars for repairs have disappeared rather being actually used for restoring the street lights - they may just get the city's streetlights back up and running by 2016!
