How corrupt a city is depends on how much government funding they get to cover up their corruption.

They knew about murder too. So everything is ok because they did it first.
Come on.

A fox only kills for the food when hungry or to feed its young. County officials like to steal to keep in practice.

What? Foxes and feeding babies. I'm against county officials making any rules about hunting Foxes, especially when nursing cubs. And no I don't think anyone has the right to steal a law practice business.

I say we allow the blacks keep their jobs as elected officials but allow a really smart white guy run the business end of city government. This is a large major city, and it seems black ppl don't have what it takes to get the job done without stealing or appointing family members to important positions without having a background needed to do the job intelligently.

Now let us be fair. The turkia Mullins scandal involves white people. One black man claims he was fired because he would not divert money illegally that turkia wanted him to when she was economic director.The board at airport has Caucasians that were doing things wrong .they admitted they hired turkia illegally. We have to be sure in the future who we elect will have people appointed by them that have best integrity possible regardless of race.agreed?

Detroit is not the only community experiencing government corruption. ST. CLAIR COUNTY CORRUPTION – FRAUD PERPETRATED UPON ITS CITIZENS: A large portion of 451 residents were overcharged by $16 each for their Delinquent Dog Licenses, in violation of the St. Clair County Animal Control & Protection ordinance, before the Board of Commissioners amended the ordinance as a cover-up. All our elected officials know this happened – our Attorney General knows it – and the director of the of the AG’s Criminal Division, located right in the City of Detroit knows it – he accuses me of being “frustrated” because I believe those persons who were overcharged should receive a refund. This is black & white corruption – should not be tolerated – but nobody cares. Visit @www.knightsanimalwelfaresocie ty.com

And I ask you, who invented the biscuit cutter?
The biscuit cutter was invented in 1875 by Alexander P. Ashbourne, an African-American inventor.
So they always got that going for them.

Detroit was corrupt since the 20's and 30's under white supremacy. Blacks learned everything from their white masters.

Not everything young man. Check your history. A. L. Cralle invented an ice cream scooper on February 2, 1897.

well the people of Detroit & Chicago got EXACTLY what they have voted for since 1964.

One party & union corruption in charge of everything since 1964.

Noting will or can change in either city until there is a complete change in city structure.

So voters have a clear choice, vote the way you have been voting since 1964. How's that long voting record for one party been working for ya Hummmmm?

or vote for all new people from new parties
new races, faces, ideas.

cause what ya got now is not working for anyone except the union fat cats and da people mismanaging the Detroit Budget.
