This documentary shows how bad things are in the city of Detroit right now.

These are the main points that I retained from watching this video:

-A man who hunts raccoons and sells the meat to make a living.
-120 square kilometers of the city are vacant, an area larger than than city of Vancouver.
-22% unemployment.
-Homes selling for $1.
-Median home price is $6000 and falling.
-Wild animals are moving back into the city... pheasants, coyotes, even beavers.

In another video that can be seen on CBC's website, they state that 40% of the downtown area is vacant.

This obviously applies ONLY to the CITY OF DETROIT, not the suburbs and the metro Detroit area as a whole... JUST the city of Detroit itself.
