Editorial Reviews

This DVD is the story of Detroit's history of violence and its portrayal in the national media. Filled with archival film & TV footage from the rum wars of the roaring 20s to the drug wars of the 80s and 90s, from the corruption of Jimmy Hoffa and La Cos

Wow! I got an advance copy in Detroit, & this DVD covers everything! The Purple Gang, gangs like the Errol Flynn's, the Young Boys, White Boy Rick, & BMF. It even has stuff a lot of us (real Detroiter) forgot about like the John DeLorean cocaine deal and when that dopefiend beat up Rosa Parks. A great mixture of history, social commentary, and juicy crime stories. A must have for anyone interested in Detroit, crime, or the history of urban American in general!

I grew up on 7 mile & Kelly in the 70's & 80's and to this day wouldnt have changed a thing about my childhood. I went to Denby HS and worked afternoons at the market on Hayes and Troester. It was a tough place, you were always at risk, but you learned how to survive. You knew not to wear your new Jordans or Max Julian to Eastland unless you had 3 or 4 of your boys with you. I once got robbed for a gold chain by a older kid with an attack dog just on Bishop and E Warren. Come to find out it was a police dog and it was a cops kid, the younger brother knew me and gave my chain back. We didnt even tell anybody it happened, it was just teenage life in the D. This movie took me back to the days of hearing about YBI and all those dudes. I remember hearing about an incident on the Boblo boat, and there was always talk about the Guardian Angels in town but neither was mentioned in this docu. I loved the film, great clips... I think I saw some Bill Bonds in there. I moved to Cali in 1990, but I still think about the D everyday

I grew up in the Detroit during the 50's, 60's, part of the 70's. i would recommend it for anyone who grew up in that era. i enjoyed the footage shown from that time-it brought back memories. if anything, the makers of this film could do a film on each of the subjects mentioned in the film-it's an overview but it's like you get a tantalizing bite of a topic and then they move on. one topic they mention-the death of a persian gulf vet named riggs. they make his murder sound like part of a social problems of detroit when actually he was murdred by those closest to him-his wife and her brother. that could have happened anywhere and i am surprised they did not mention the outcome in the film. other than that, it was interesting.
