It's gotten this bad? Any suggestions about cleaning it up or is that impossible?

"We're not discouraging people from coming, I love the city, I want them to realize we don't have enough man hours," police union president Joe Duncan told the station. "I don't think the city is going to get same officer 8 hours a day as you do for 12 hours a day."

According to My Fox Detroit, fans also were urged to vote yes on Proposal 2, which would guarantee collective bargaining rights.

Detroit is a cesspool for sure... but this sounds more like a pro union ad rather than a concern for spectator safety.

I suspect when Romney wins Detroit will be burned to the ground..

I would love nothing more than to watch Detroit burn to cinders. It's been Michigan's anchor for far too long.

More shameless union propaganda and fear-mongering.
The f'ing unions will stoop to any level to get what they want.

Never letting a good crisis go to waste....throwing Dearborn and Canton on the pile would make my day.
