#1 While Detroit *is* a poster child for the blue-state model, this is more about unions, wages and working hours than crime.

#2 I know the answer. Let's make guns totally illegal. That should reduce the violence, just like in Chicago and DC.

#9 Many of our urban areas are disintegrating. When I travel the Interstate highway system I rarely go off onto side streets. Repo guys know the bad areas. I know a bounty hunter who had his truck jacked. He located it with his gps. He went and stole it back. He let the police know after he got no help from them.

#10 Many of our urban areas are disintegrating

It may be more of an evolutionary feature rather than a bug that needs 'rescuing'. Although, you'll hear the unending whine from those who believe them to be the 'be all and end all' of human habitat.

The rationale for some cities have disappeared, just like hundreds of ghost towns of the Old West. In other cases, the products and services which were once exclusive the large cities are now displaced to smaller entities and communities. You now longer have to go to the Big City for entertainment and culture either.

#11 The welfare state doesn't help. In the past, the carrying capacity of a city for those who didn't work was limited .... today, not so much.

#12 Obama wants his urban areas. I have seen it time and time again. People don't want you to move up in the world. Friends for years will say, "well I guess that's the last we will see of you". In elementary school going to a higher grade reading group will cause trouble for those left behind. When we had the riots it was the urban areas. Many who have left the cities years ago will tell you "you can't go back".
