Raw Videos: Fires in Detroit This past week including Devil’s Night 2012

The videos below are from fires from the past week in Detroit including Devil’s Night 2012 in Detroit. I am sure that there will be more videos to be uploaded today and I will update if needed.

From Wikipedia: Devil’s Night, or Hell Night, is a name associated with October 30, the night before Halloween. It is related to the “Mischief night” practiced in other parts of the United States and the world, but is chiefly associated with the serious vandalism and arson seen in Detroit, Michigan from the 1970s to the 1990s,[1] finally prompting the “Angel’s Night” community response.

    Whatever happened to the old adage “Do No Harm?” My family use to live for a brief stint in Northville, MI. I use to see photos in the newspaper of people who had set a blaze to houses, businesses, etc… etc… It angers me that nothing has changed. What ever happened to our moral & the value we place on human life? Whatever happen to striving to be the best? Were our role models that bad? Just to spark a open dialogue who were our role models?
