Gee where was all this tough talk back in the 70's when the city was burnt to da ground?

Had city, county , state and federal authorities cracked down hard on the arsonist back then you would not have the arson problem you have now today.

The problem is your city county state lacked enforcement policy taught arsonist they can get away with any thing in Detroit and nothing will happen to them.

Just as drug dealers looters & other criminals have learned they can do anything in Detroit and nothing will happen to them.

want drugs guns arsonist, looter to just disappear??

tax them. push lots of regulations city county and state paper work on them to sell drugs,
put TV cameras in da hood take pictures of the dealers and the buyers then publish them on the nightly news. set up mobile tax offices in vans tax the dealers a sales and income tax then tax the buyers with a sales tax then arrest them for illegal possession of band substance.

Hey this aggressive policy has worked for years in Detroit . The city county and state over taxed over regulated business let union bully tactics plus lacked law enforcement drive business from Detroit to other business friendly environments.
see all those empty factories jobs gone?

wonder where they moved to??

do stop and frisk every day in the hood. take the guns off the streets, take the drugs off the streets.

show the criminals you mean business.

This sounds like a hollow threat since the prosecution rate is still minimal. Increasing the threat to arsonists also increases the thrill they receive from the endeavor.

HE SAID THIS ON Fox 2 News months ago.
Those were his inner thoughts and ever since he has been recanting it because of the bad PR. You can take em' out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of them.
