At one point, Detroit was a thriving hub of industry.

However, as many know, the “Motor City” took a drastic turn for the worse in the 1960s. Now the city has one of the highest rates per capita for homicide in the United States.

For those who haven't seen the city in some time, or may never have seen Detroit, just check out this chilling video a young girl took while driving through the area at night:

As you can see, the video shows streets that are riddled with gangs:


People getting run over in parking lots:

And random street fires:

If that video isn't enough, just check out this video a YouTuber took, where a prostitute in a wheelchair tried to pick him up:

Still, Detroit is not lost by any means. In 2014 the city filed for bankruptcy, which allowed it to eliminate $7 billion in debt and invest $1.7 billion into improved city services.
