Police officers greeted Detroit Tigers fans before their team’s win Saturday night with an urgent message: “Enter Detroit at Your Own Risk.”

The message, relayed in the form of a flier, was delivered by about 400 off-duty police officers before the Tigers won the first game of their division series against the A’s, My Fox Detroit reported.

As they poured into Comerica Park, fans were given the fliers reading: “Attention: Enter Detroit at Your Own Risk.” It warned that Detroit is America’s most violent city and that the city’s police force is grossly understaffed.

"We're not discouraging people from coming, I love the city, I want them to realize we don't have enough man hours," police union president Joe Duncan told the station. "I don't think the city is going to get same officer 8 hours a day as you do for 12 hours a day."

That's scary. I guess someone will venture out, get hurt, and then sue the city though they have been warned.

your irrational hate of foxnews is laughable. Especially since this piece of news comes from a local fox station that was few ties or things in common with this national news channel.

Burning down those buildings actually kind of makes Detroit look nicer.

Ive been there several times, its only kinda scary really late at night, but the city looks neglected, badly, so there are a LOT of seedy areas.

Scare mongering by the police union in the runup to an election where a statewide collective bargaining law is up for a vote.

As for Detroit itself -

Insisting on absolute safety is for people who don't have the balls to live in the real world

I'm not sure your quote there fits Doc, it's not really insisting on "absolute safety". That would most likely mean shutting it down and sending everyone away before anything bad can happen. Sure, safety but hey if some people don't listen to these warnings and something actually happens, they probably won't be living in the real world much longer. :/
