Make em ride 10 speeds in speedos. Then they wouldn't be so tough on poor folks and it would save the city money. I recommend solid rubber tires cause of all the glass that pervades the underworld there.

Spend a little time in prison "minimum wage". Cops deserve raises everywhere for dealing with $@itheads like you.

My cousin found his stolen car twice in Detroit. Twice he called the police to see what he should do and twice they would not respond. Also the 5 kids sitting in it could have been apprehended but I guess they have better things to do. We will not step into Detroit for nothing as it is out of control!

I wonder what the police Officers were thinking when they butchered the autoworkers? Every man for himself? Union Medical personel are next once they rape the munincipalities. Divide and conquer.

A long time ago a national work stoppage would have put a stop to what is happening now.

Too late. Lets just upgrade and give some land to corporations and give them tax breaks.

Within a year its all going bust anyway with the way banks are charging fake interest rates.

The first generation in this new world order are going to be rebellious they say. After that smooth sailing and we will all be slaves.

That's where you are wrong, people don't need cops, they can police their own much better. Cops are always last to arrive, they don't show up until after some girl gets butt raped. 90% of their cases go unsolved, they are a drain on society. What percentage do you think of the Detroit Police department is corrupt, I'm thinking at least 96 percent.

I heard an entry level Detroit Police officer only makes $12.50 an hour and city still wants them to take a pay cut. I would not want to live in a city where cops dont even get paid double minimum wage.
