Yet another sign of a decaying civilization:
DETROIT (AP) — Abandoned and neglected parts of Detroit are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the bodies of murder victims. And authorities acknowledge there’s little they can do.
At least a dozen bodies have turned up in 12 months, many of them purposely hidden or discarded in alleys, fields and vacant houses or garages. Seven of the dead are believed to have been slain outside Detroit and then dumped within the city.
It’s a pattern made possible by more than four decades of urban decay and suburban flight.
It was within most people’s lifetimes that Detroit was one of the world’s great cities, rushed into existence in a wave of human ingenuity the likes of which the world had never before seen.
I feel like we might never see anything like it again.
