If u look at all the players in these wayne county corruption including airport, what kind of image does this give to metro detroit that already has a bad image around the country?. Things like this going on just put a roadblock into really knowing who to trust. When nixon administration was caught what happened? All of these fiascos could have been avoided by making sure rules r followed especially by leaders who hire the ones who implement day to day business in wayne county. No one is above the law. Including officials who were ignorant of what was happening. How can these illegal activities be avoided in the future not only in wayne county but every county?

But don't underestimate the street cred this give us when we travel to places like Norman Oklahoma and West Overshoe. When folks hear you are from Detroit, they don't mess with you. In fact, they are more likely to offer you money.
