Well, obviously that affects tax revenues but I think this is really an extension of the recent investigation ordered into "possible waste, abuse, fraud and corruption in the city's two pension funds and all employee benefit programs." IMO, the city is making a statement against years of "mismanagement and allegations of corruption associated with the funds." It's not about crime or white flight.
"A federal grand jury in March indicted a former general counsel for Detroit's police and fire pension fund. The government says Ronald Zajac forced people who had business with the pension funds to pay thousands in cash to benefit pension trustees."

When a city's population falls to one-third of its previous size, the entire concept of municipal government needs to be restructured.

Detroit never did this.

Probably two of the four were doing something wrong and drawing attention to themselves and just wanted to think it was unfair.
Almost everyone who's stopped by the police thinks it's unfair because what they were doing wasn't that bad to deserve a ticket.
If you watch those "caught in the act" shows, you see people of all colors and ages sometimes being abused by the police.
Someone said the other night the social psychology and dynamics within the black community almost invites suspicion and scrutiny.
In many instances, starting out with an attitude ends up with one no matter what the circumstance.
Being overly sensitive and expecting to be treated with kid gloves is not how to earn respect.
Just sayin'.
Classic! Of course they were doing something wrong! They're black, walking, driving, shopping, jogging....all illegal if you're black.
You're ignorance is astounding. Anyway, the VP of NBC, Val Nichols spoke on Hardball last night, as well as Michael Steele; about their experiences with police because of their color.

Take a look and a listen; or will you just say "they're just being sensitive"?

Yep. I don't think it, I know it. A good manager has confidence in the abilities of those he has placed as department heads and in their ability to manage their departments and budgets without his interference. Obviously, he meets with department heads on a regular basis but not to discuss the day to day operations or personnel matters. It's about budgets, projects and future vision. That is the way government works.
So, what does he discuss with the department heads?

What to have for lunch?

And visa versa.
"A screaming mob of whites gathers in a public square, their placards proclaiming their hatred of blacks, their shouts of "N—-r!" reverberating and bouncing off the walls of nearby shops and homes like the ominous thunder of a coming storm. They loot shops that cater to blacks, and a prominent elected official is at the head of the mob, declaring that blacks are "a cancer" that must be eradicated.
Mississippi in the Sixties? A neo-Nazi rally? A Klan conclave?
No, it’s a recent scene in southern Tel Aviv, Israel, where Likud member of the Knesset Miri Regev – a former IDF spokesperson and prominent political figure – led a well-organized march of ultra-nationalists demanding the expulsion of all blacks from Israel."

Bush bankrupted Detroit
Detroit's poliTICians bankrupted Detroit...DUHmmy. It's been a (well know FACT of) topic of discussion in the REAL world for quite some time now.

11 Mar 2013

Ex-Detroit mayor Kilpatrick convicted of range of corruption charges.

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted Monday of a raft of federal corruption charges, a verdict that all but ensures a return to prison for a man once considered a rising political star.

Follow @NBCNewsUS

Jurors found Kilpatrick guilty of 24 criminal counts, including racketeering, extortion and bribery, after a trial in which prosecutors said he presided over a breathtaking profit machine that turned City Hall into “Kilpatrick Incorporated.”

The racketeering count alone carries up to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors said that Kilpatrick, 42, steered $83 million in city work to a friend and contractor, Bobby Ferguson, in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks. Jurors also returned guilty verdicts Monday against Ferguson and against Kilpatrick’s father.

A fundraiser also testified that she gave Kilpatrick a $200,000 personal cut of his political donations and pulled cash from her bra during private meetings.

Kilpatrick, a Democrat, was just 31 when he was elected mayor in 2001. His tenure was scarred by allegations of cronyism, nepotism and out-of-control spending, coinciding with the continued decline of the city itself.

Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 2008 for lying in a civil trial during which he denied having an affair with his former chief of staff and plotting with her to fire the deputy police chief.

He resigned and spent three months in jail. He later spent more than a year behind bars for violating probation....

Does Suicide Intervention violate the rights of suicidal azzholes?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA......
Detroiters have long gloated over their voting black racist crooks into office for over 50 years now and, as a result, causing the city's rapid decline. Go figure.
In the interim, the city has repeatedly been running to Lansing for money in many different forms. This means that out-state taxpayers have been forced to fund Detroit's criminal behavior for more than 50 years.
$18 Billion in Affirmative Action Style Stupidity!
This governor rightfully decided that it is time that it stopped and he has the legal right as governor to fix a broken black problem. He did the responsible thing as an adult because the juvenile Detroit 'leadership' never grew up.
Here we go again, you say blacks are incompetent. Racist f*ck that you are.

I thought you right whiners were all about democracy.

Michigan is a top ten ten with the most debt.

How would you right whiney azzholes think if Obama declared Michigan a state of emergency & sent Rahm Emanuel to be king of Michigan?

You would have a GD fit. " OMG OMG Obama is taking away the vote of the people! OMG OMG OMFG"

This is why you people are dumber than sh*t.

Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to that surplus.

The debt when the Arabs started a global war with the United States was 5 trillion dollars.
The debt when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the US government was 8.5 trillion.

Here's a link to a document that describes in detail how the government is funded and borrows money:

Perhaps you should go back to where I posted the article telling about how the state's attorney hid the photos of Zimmerman's injuries from her sworn testimony and statement.

Perhaps you can look up some articles of the person who leaked this being fired.
Perhaps you can actually get off your ass and look. All you have to do is read my posts and you'll see some links.
Or, you can just use google, you fucking moron.
