that detroit has lost population doesn't make it "underpopulated".

i have no problem with detroit developing empty land, or letting it return to nature, or whatever it wants.

my objection is to detroit kicking people out of homes they paid for & own & paying them "market value" (which is in some cases not enough to pay their moving cost, let alone another home) -- then effectively giving the land to rich developers.

one doesn't have to live in a city to know that's wrong.

and the pattern has occurred in other cities, so one doesn't have to live in detroit to recognize it.

but since your position is that only living in or around a place gives one "standing" to discuss it, as outsiders can't know the "details," i expect you to refrain from discussion of arizona's anti-immigrant laws & similar developments.

you don't know the details & the peculiarities of the area, after all.
