city of detroit

They are talking about going on strike? even the police dept is talking about it.

If that happens, it will be worse then the riots of the 60's

Sounds like you guys have your head in the right place. Hats off to you

I hope the same for the PD? If they were to strike, would they call in the National Guard?

That's not good news for the City workers. But, I was just down there recently, and from what I seen Detroit could use a good fire! Bagdad looks better these days.

I could give two shits about what happens downtown, but being in Redford I'm not a half mile from the border of Detroit, and don't care to see what effects it might have on outlying areas.

Not to mention there is already too many a-holes moving out of that place and into nicer areas, and this is only going to cause even more idiots to leave.

The schools are going to hell, fast. Not cool. As much as I hate to admit it, all the cities/townships immediately outside of the D seem to be heading in the same direction in the not so distant future.

Somebody needs to get their act together.

That is because they let the blacks move out of Detroit and into those areas.
