What a piece of garbage. One of the few cases I hope he's charged as an adult.
While Flint is the remnants of an abandoned city. Where essentially only those without education, resources, and connections were left. It's a land dearth of opportunity. Where there is not even enough minimum wage jobs to go around.
In some ways, Flint is sadder to drive through than Detroit. You expect decline in a large city like Detroit, but Flint is a small city-it used to be the third largest in the state, but Warren took that place a couple of decades ago. I think Livonia also has more people than Flint does. The schools are terrible, and there really aren't any alternatives. At least in Detroit, there are magnet schools within the public schools for advanced students and charter schools run through churches and other organizations to choose from.
Flint is a hellhole because the unions drove out the major employer and the city responded with higher taxes on those who remained.
