Hunter: Empire of Lies
East Side is one of the more dangerous areas of Detroit city. With a population of 90% African-Americans, it’s almost assuredly avoided by Detroit’s Caucasian tourists. While at a glance, West Side seems very similar, there have been blood feuds raging between the two areas for decades, with full-out gang wars funded by drug money spilling blood in the streets. The police and fire departments often do not answer calls from East Side for an hour. Non-urgent complaints, such as vandalism or a break-in, may not get an officer at all, instead being told to ‘submit a claim’ to Justice.
The Lakeside Crew is the ruling gang here, although it has subdivisions that occasionally bicker with each other. At night, strangers are best off avoiding the East Side altogether or, if unavoidable, ignoring the red lights as best they can.
