I grew up about 30 minutes north of Detroit. It was nice to be close enough to the city to be able to easily go to concerts, restaurants, and other cultural and special events. It was also nice to be outside of the 'danger zone' known as the downtown Motor City. In my wildest dreams, I could never imagine that someone would want to be kidnapped, but in certain parts of Detroit, it's a relatively easy task to get yourself kidnapped, pistol-whipped, or blasted in in the nuts with a stun gun. If it doesn't happen on it it's own though, you can always pay for it.
