  1. I dont give a rats rear what people say about Vegas making a comeback. As it stands the valley as a whole is half empty and blight is leading to more problems. Note I said problems, not crime. The crime was already there, sometimes blight and lack of funds leads to more problems, and more crime though.....

    Lesson learned, a city needs to make sure that it has secured buildings and holds lenders accountable when there is fall out on an owners behalf financially. The only thing left is a building that has to be policed and cared for at extreme times during emergency and in the event of the building becoming a crime scene.

    You want to solve problems in Detroit and Vegas? Figure out how to clear up some of the vacancy and decay. No, not all the strip malls will be filled, and some of the empty houses may not be worth reviving. Take it as a hit or take it with a little panache and decide to do something out side of the box to fix the problem.
