More police, and police that do their jobs. We have quite a few. But there are some that are just not worth their spit. That can't be tolerated here, we need to have officers who don't insult and degrade the common citizen.

got a story for you I just heard, don't know when it happened. Woman was beaten up, called the police. Officer who answered the phone laughed at her, would not send a car. She had fresh bruises. Reason for not sending car: assailant wasn't there, there was nothing the police can do. This isn't a drug user, alcoholic or street person. This is a homeowner and a hard-working citizen. Even a street person should not have to be degraded when a crime is committed against them.

Just the other day, someone was seen with an item stolen from a residents home. Police were called. Item identified and returned to the owner. The kicker: the victim and the identifying resident involved were SHOCKED the police were so nice and friendly toward them. Not used to that. Good job, officers. Thanks for making those citizens feel safe and gaining their trust in you.

get rid of the weasels for starters. The cops could do a better job if they weren't being pestered.

How is a weasel allowed to run for public office? What type of elections allow that? Could it be that the weasel misunderstood and thought someone said ERECTION instead of ELECTION so he got in line?

from what I have heard one of the ways to reduced the crime rate in Ecorse is to get rid of some of the new politicians that talked a good game before the election and now they are just as dirty and underhanded as the ones that were just voted out. how can the citizens have any respect for there selves or there city when those in power are using it for dirty deeds either they are parforming them deeds there self or they are turning there heads while others are doing illegal things either way it isn't the way things should be done. I would advice the new mayor to get his house in order or there ewill be someone in the next election that will win by a landslide its a shame that the people of Ecorse back a man who brought such hope to the city but now that he is comfortably in office he seems to be going ina differant direction wake up people, takes notes, remember what is happening you dont need another hitler regime other cities and other states are wwatching your little town carefully and we are seeing a lot wrong its time to fix it

I agree new police that know how to be the police. I can count on one hand the number of good officers at that department. The last anministration fired all the good officers and kept the ass kissing, corrupt, evil officers. I can't wait till the rest of the 2nd tier officers take over the union. Then maybe officers will get fair representation and the corrupt will be left hanging out to dry where they should be. They have only hired back one officer from the 15 that were fraudulently fired during a 3 year spurt. Trevino is one of those good officers I mentioned!!!! Otherwise I have been hearing some disturbing stories my self. Its to bad!!! Its pathetic and its a shame.

DeShawn Reed and his uncle, Marvin Reed, are seven years into 20-year sentences for assault with intent to commit murder in the 2000 shooting of a man DeShawn went to school with in their Ecorse neighborhood.

Like many convicted prisoners, they've maintained their innocence since they were arrested.

The shooting victim, Shannon Gholston, 30, is paralyzed from the neck down. He spent at least a year in hospitals and now lives in the same close-knit Ecorse neighborhood with his parents in a white brick house just two blocks from where he was shot.

The Reeds are in prison mainly because Gholston said they shot him: Marvin drove the car, DeShawn blasted away from the front passenger seat, the testimony went at the Reeds' 2000 preliminary exam and 2001 bench trial.

Other prosecution witnesses identified another shooter in another location. The Reeds' roommates corroborated their alibis. No physical evidence tied the Reeds to the scene or the shooting. Neither had a record of violence or weapons charges.

The Wayne County Circuit Court judge who convicted and sentenced the Reeds said he did so because of Gholston's testimony.

"I'm sort of thrown back on the testimony of really the only witness who is directly involved in the incident whose testimony that has any credibility to me at all and which rings true, very resoundingly true, and that is the testimony of the victim himself," Judge Michael Hathaway said in issuing the verdict
