Here in Detroit the other day a young guy jacked the car of a 91 year-old man, a WWII veteran. Both the thug and the victim are black, and the victim in this video news report along with his wife both offer the same two solutions to the situation: lock up the guy for many years, and the other young men in Detroit behaving this way should alter their behavior.
The choices of these people in Detroit to harm other people and themselves, and to destroy and steal, and to refrain from improving themselves, is a major source of Detroit's troubles. Residents of Detroit live in a democracy, and they have choices to vote. But they also have other choices as well.
I like that this 91 year-old-man was at a liquor store. What was he buying? The interview of him and his wife show that decent, self-respecting, intelligent people can drink healthily well into old age!
Here he rails at the people who stood around watching and chatting while he got beaten.
