Super Bowl and self-defense
An article on the planned Super Bowl in Detroit quotes a resident:
"City officials say Super Bowl visitors should not be intimidated by the statistics, saying downtown is relatively safe.
But that is small comfort in outlying neighborhoods.
Workman points to a bus stop at the corner where a young man was recently shot to death. She is disturbed by the comings and goings at a reputed drug house next door and by the hostile-looking youths who hang around outside the liquor store across the street.
She and her neighbors say they cannot count on police to help in this part of the city.
"You learn how to adapt and keep you a gun," Lauderdale said."
