The sky is falling. Yes, the world would be better for Wayne county if they had a bottomless pit of money. That's the way they have been doing business. Now they spout the scare mantra of releasing felons next door to you so you will give them more money. The current modus oporandi is to break off services into pieces and fund them separately with bonds and millages.

You can fool some of the people some of the time and it turns out you can also fool them all the time.

Is it underfunded of are the police under worked and overpaid? Average cop makes 99k and another 40k in benefits all thanks to the stranglehold the unions have. Detroit and wayne county in a 40 year funk but we can be sure the moron voters will still believe in the union chant.

Ya can't fix stupid.

Keep waiting to exhale officer. Do your research. In taylortucky police can retire at more than they made when active. Now let us do research on county state and other insignificant cities round here. Don't be surprised. Be ANGRY that tax dollars r being wasted!

The corruption in Wayne county is also intertwined with metro cities also. There is very little or any accountability on reason. The turkia scandal just revealed much.corporal in Taylor police retired at $80k+++. Last year

Ur an idiot. DPD officers retire at around 28 g's a yr. The police that retire at 99 g's are usually from CA where the pay scale is high due to the cost of living. Either learn the facts or get a clue.

Trim the fat on these ridiculous pensions and salaries! They can no longer be afforded.! UAW workers have sacrificed. Police fire etc. Need to sacrifice! This is long overdue!

If they had all the money in the world, they would still need to find an excuse for poor performance which would not change. So resist the urge to increase funding. It's an appeasement that will never end.
