I grew up in Detroit in the '60's and yes, Devil's Night was a big deal, but back then, it was mostly kids out doing pranks like ringing doorbells and hiding, soaping car windows, tp'ing trees, cars, etc... I wasn't allowed out but my older brothers took part (I don't think my parents were aware) and they'd usually have some tales to tell. a lot of times people who kids didn't like were targets. like the house of the 'mean' man or lady on the block (like the one who rants if a ball goes in their yard, for example) but, years later, after we had moved out, it got a lot scarier, more violent, more evil, unfortunately. I'm not sure if they still have it or not, but I don't think it's the big problem that it once was.
