I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and remember the days when Detroit
was a booming city. I can still remember the riots in Detroit, that the citizens
of Detroit destroyed their own city and from then on the city had nothing
but lousy politicans that basically robbed Detroit of its money and pride.
Just recently the former mayor (Kilpatrick) is in prison and now the Police chief resigns
from this torn city, The corruption continues to grow for ones ability to make
easy money and far as the law enforcement,its best describe as totally
unbelievable as foot cops have no leadership to lead them thru bad times.
I really feel sorry for the Firefighters in Detroit as they use to do their jobs
for the community, now its like having to do it cause there is no one else
to put out the fires of abandoned buildings that one of their own citizens
of the great City of Detroit set and thus risking their lives for what. I have
friends in Law enforcement and Fire depts in Detroit,I really feel bad for them.
I guess this can also be said about the law enforcement there as they also suffer
from corruption, just follow the news as things are going to hell there very quickly.
I sometimes have tears in my eyes for this city going to hell in a hand basket.
On a positive note I can remember riding the public transit buses to Tiger stadium
to watch players like, Norm Cash, Al Kaline, Jim Northrup and the World series Tigers
back then, Don't want to try that now if you value your life.
