I hate how the media paints these cities as if they are the worst places to live and there is nothing good about them. These places actually have a lot of things to do and see. I live in Davison, a suburb of Flint. Yea, it is kinda crappy and unsafe but there are historical things to see and good restaurants. I love it and I hate how everybody who doesn't live in Michigan stereotypes these places. Don't make assumptions unless u have actually been here. I also hate how people think Michigan s***s because of just a few cities in central Michigan. Michigan is actually a very beautiful place and it is the best state I've ever been in or seen.

Actually, You Can Tell Someone's From Flint If They Are Drinking Milk. I Live In Utah, But I Went Down To Detroit To Try To Fight TacTix, I Failed Because I Drove To Far North And Almost Ended Up In Canada.

There is do much crime daily in Flint. People are killed and dumped in the river or left in boarded up abandoned houses that are on every street in every neighborhood. Drugs and prostitution is rampant. Kids so not play outside, are scared to go to school or walk to stores. A h**l on earth.

Businesses have died off over several years. Owners are shot or beat up by robbers. Some stores are set on fire. Many malls are barely full of shops. Everywhere is not safe.
