So, Now How Bad is It In Detroit?

It's so bad, even the Detroit Police Chief just narrowly avoided being carjacked. That's how bad it is.

The Detroit News: Detroit police chief talks safety strategies with city residents

Detroit Police Chief James Craig spoke with residents Saturday about efforts to make neighborhoods safer and revealed he'd nearly been a victim of crime in the city as well.

"I was almost a victim two weeks ago of carjacking," said Craig to a stunned crowd. "The Chief of Police, I know. Can you believe that? I'm happy I had the presence of mind."

Sadly, the article doesn't give any details, or what his having "the presence of mind" had to do with anything, but it's a rather telling event when even the Police Chief is susceptible to getting jacked in the D.
