come on man! ya can't blame just one elected moron for the failure of the city. There is more than enough blame to go around to those who deserve it or earned the blame.
The elected morons stealing as much as they could deserve jail time and need to pay back what they stole.
Corrupt city hall workers need jail time and to be bared from working in government again.
Unions with greedy excessive union contracts outrageous unaffordable retirement clauses contributed to the city financial collapse.
Unions should be decertified and bared from government sector jobs including garbage, police and fire departments.
tax payers should not be held captive by greedy unions or forced to pay retirements for city workers.
the citizens share the blame for the city failure.
They took no pride in the city they lived in, they allowed it to be burned looted destroyed by fellow citizens.
the citizens deserve a empty burned out lot for a city.
Remember stood around and they did nothing to protect & preserve what they had when Detroit was a vibrant city.
The law enforcement community, city, state county federal did nothing to stop the drugs, murders, looting, rapes , armed robberies.
Had the law enforcement community came down hard on the law breakers things could have turned out better.
taken the guns, drugs, illegal immigrants, criminal element off the streets this city could have been saved.
you have a collection of peoples at every level in Detroit who were always asking " what's in it for me" not whats best for Detroit"
Detroit deserves what it got.
its what people of Detroit ask for when they elected the same old democrat morons into office cycle after cycle, ignoring law breakers just doing whats good for them not whats good for the long term health of the city.
