Like many cities throughout the country, there are parts you simply just avoid. These are areas where crime is at an all-time high and it's just too dangerous. For the people who live in these areas, it's simply a way of life

Former police officer, Charlie Moore used to spend his time patrolling the streets of Detroit. Now he spends most of his time behind the camera as he drives through some of the roughest streets in America. Most recently, he took a drive through a neighborhood that he refers to as "Detroit's deadliest west side hood."

Now I don't know if it's actually the deadliest neighborhood on Detroit's west side or if it was worded that way for dramatic effect. Either way, from the outside looking in, it looks pretty rough around the edges.

People Don't Move Out of the Way for Cars

The one thing I found interesting was how people standing in the middle of the road don't move when cars are trying to get through. It's so bizarre. I wasn't the only one to notice this, someone on YouTube said the same thing.

I just don't understand how people from these areas have no regard for anyone else. The amount of times you are driving down the street just to have people stand and stare at you or keep walking in your way like you are in the wrong. its just so odd.
Someone else replied:

Different upbringing, their mentality is “nobody cares about me so why should I care about them.

Now let's take a ride through this Detroit neighborhood.

This massive, 32,000-square-foot mansion in Detroit's Palmer Woods District was built about 100 years ago.

It's not only served as the primary residence for Archbishops of the Archdiocese of Detroit, but it has also been owned by Detroit Pistons star John Salley.
