Going to Toronto for a week tomorrow, wanted to catch a Blue Jays game. Unfortunately they are out of town for the entire week I am there.

Discovered the Detroit Tigers have home games pretty much every day I will be in Toronto. My girlfriend said Detroit is a 4hr drive so I would like to catch a game.

How dangerous is it to attend a ball game in Detroit. Girlfriend's family thinks I'm crazy for even wanting to go there.

It's not bad.

 

Just carry a cross and display it Diego Sanchez style against any evil-doers.

Every city has it's bad areas. You'll be fine man. Unless you plan on driving through the hood with your windows down playing David Allen Coe, you'll be fine.


That's what I figured. The Canadians I'm visiting are talking to me like I'm a crazy person and saying people don't even stop at red lights there for fear of being car jacked.

Thus, none will loan me their car and I'm going to have to get a rental.

Some fun weekly, average stats to consider:

- there are 57 murders each week
- 1,718 violent assaults
- 90 rapes
- 502 car jackings
- 18 kidnapping or false imprisonments

Some more fun facts:

- there is one cop per 40,000 people
- 52% of school-aged youth are dropouts
- there are 57 churches and 22,009 liquor stores
- food delivery and public transport only serve 12% of the city due to safety concerns
- police and EMT's only serve 60% for the same reason
- many franchises like McDonalds have bulletproof glass between employees and customers Phone Post 3.0

If I'm murdered I won't even know.

A violent assault won't be pleasant.

Although I'm super good looking I don't believe I would be a target for rape. But maybe I'll leave my 26yr old blonde girlfriend in Toronto. She's definitely rape material.

If I'm kidnapped I hope they feed me well.

You'll be boxed in at an intersection. Someone appears at your driver's side door pointing a gun at you through the glass.

If you don't get out, that gun shatters the glass and they reach in and open your door and pull you out.

Broken window makes no difference because your car will be in 300 pieces two hours later. Phone Post 3.0

Yes. Pop the collar, too.

Actually, just do it like Corey. He looks great and nobody messes with him, they know better.

Enjoy the game.
