State lawmaker says dissolving Detroit should be an option
November 29, 2012
Detroit is at a political impasse that could lead to a financial collapse next month.
Now, one state legislator is saying Lansing should consider all its optionsincluding possibly dissolving the city as a municipality.
The idea of dissolving Detroitand effectively merging it with Wayne Countyhas popped up occasionally in some business and political circles recently.
But mid-Michigan senator Rick Jones is the first official to publicly discuss that as an option.
Jones says Detroits local leaders just arent dealing with the citys fiscal problemsand having the states biggest city file for municipal bankruptcy would be horrible.

Nobody will be dissolving Detroit. All the buildings and people (for the most part) will still be there. They will need some minimal service. The county can't take over Detroit without becoming a bigger Detroit itself. Be careful what you wish for Mr. Jones. Another scenario suggests breaking Detroit into pieces. That would be a further management nightmare. Would there be 4-5 police, fire and trash departments? If they were centrally managed, who would do that? It would be more complicated than anyone in Lansing could comprehend. And the costs associated with any of these concepts would be enormous. The cheapest way is to work with and repair Detroit.

It clears the way for Grand Rapids to compete with Chicago as a major hub here and let's fully understand that blacks are inept politically thus Detroit dies...

The Black folks ruined all of our major inner cities. White folks respect themselves and have respect for others who deserve respect. Its all about self respect. The blacks are like ravaging vicious animals. Soulless creatures preying on the weak. The SO CALLED good ones know whos kids are the savages. But wont speak out. So ROT with your own corpses.

Unfortunately, Grand Rapids is well on the way to becoming a sister city to Detroit.
