A Detroit security guard has gone viral on TikTok, after posting a series of “self defense” videos, which purportedly show ordinary people how to survive an attack.
MTO News viewed many of the videos – and they are all laughably bad.
In one video, the security guard tells people getting car jacked that they should “disarm” the gunman, then drive off.
In another hilariously crazy video, the guard tries to explain how a person can beat a group of angry attackers – by dancing around them.
Detroit in 2020 had a rate of 2,248.4 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, behind only Memphis, Tennessee, as the highest rate in the country among cities with more than 100,000 residents. St. Louis, Missouri, Little Rock, Arkansas, and South Bend, Indiana rounded out the top five. Lansing, Michigan was ranked No. 9.
Alabama, Maryland and Pennsylvania reported limited data to the FBI in 2020, so cities with more than 100,000 residents that often appear high in crime rankings, such as Birmingham, Baltimore and Philadelphia, are not included in this year’s data.
