And the condition is worsening.. Did anyone ever think they'd see this in America?

People are not going to open businesses were they need to worry about being robbed constantly - and when they do - they are of COURSE going to charge MORE because their overhead is more! Of course the story does not share the fact that TAXES more than anything push the chain stores out of detriot and that there are grocery stores in the suburbs all around detriot and buses that run to those shopping centers.

ETA - oh yea - and aren't the left constantly railing about chain stores and extolling the virtues of Mom and Pop stores???
