All the drug trade and violence goes to the outskirts of Detroit. Living in Macomb county the drugs in school are wicked! The apartments right next to my school have been raided for heroin and most of the kids that I go to school with are randomly violent and pretty dumbed down because of the drugs. So its not a Detroit problem its also my community problem!
I have followed the theory of the 4th turning and said there will be a black swan event that will really lead us into the period. Some believe that it was the financial crisis of 2008. I'm not so sure... I'm tending more towards a city like detroit declaring bankruptcy and cutting off the union pensions and the entitlements leading to urban riots rivaling the civil war.
