Life in "Progress" City - Detroit edition

Welcome to the motor city.........

They stand guard at his home 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

At first, and even second glance,  you don’t know if they’re real or not. 

A man on Detroit’s west side is so serious about home security, he’s using CPR dummies to help him.

The dummies are dressed as gang members.

 They stand and sit by his front door in an enclosed porch and you can’t miss them.

"I saw someone on the east side doing this and now I’m doing it.  The police stop, look, knock and tell me what a good idea this is,” the man told Local 4.

He won’t reveal his name and only agreed to share his security secrets if  we don’t share what street he lives on.

His home is the last home on his block that is still well cared for. The home is surrounded by vacant, burned out homes that attract criminals.
