Here's hoping that some Generic Morons or Found on Road Dead execs or even some UAW honchos get carjacked and dumped on Zug Island (aka Hoffa'ed). Maybe the thugs will do the country a service after all. Car-mic justice for making Deeeee-TROIT the toilet it is today.

Zug Island? Not a lot people know about that place...........

400 huh? Across the river just south of Detroit you will find the much smaller city of Windsor Ontario. Until last summer, there hadn't been one murder in over two years. 400 is more than all of Canada for any given year with 33 million population.

If I lived in Detroit, I might be inclinded to consider owning a hand gun. No need for them here which is a good thing. No law nd order, no liveable place to be.

Then I suddenly remembered that in 1987 this movie was set in Detroit "In the near future."

I have handguns already. If I lived in Detroit, I'd definitely be inclined to move elsewhere. The city where I live has about a 60,000 population and usually about a murder a year. Sometimes we go a few years without, but the crazy fellow who shot up the IHOP got us caught up.

They need more gun control. That'll fix it.

Wish that were true for everyone. I'm tired of getting skinned knees when someone else falls down.
