At this point the government should just build a giant wall around Detroit and make it a No Man's Land.

I'm all for just building a wall around it and making it an escape from New York style prison. Then after it's full to the brim with scum, nuke it from orbit.

Hmmm so nuke it from orbit?

Yeah, i noticed that too. Strange. Maybe he just has that picture so that he can get away with making racist comments. Or maybe he hates himself so much that that's why he's with a white woman in the picture.

In other news, the union contract for the police is up for renegotiation soon. I'm sure these two events are entirely unrelated.

Generally, large police forces have one officer per 500 people. So, Detroit (~717,000 people) should ideally have around 1,434 police officers. Sounds like the police chief thought that police staffing should remain constant, despite Detroit's population dropping by 25%. While he or she may be right in light of Detroit's demographic and economic challenges, it's hard to justify extra police officers when your government's broke.

Perhaps, like Chris Rock, they differentiate between "blah people" and "ni-BONGs."

One needs to be fiscally responsible.
Why doesn't the mayor just ask the public to stop comitting so many crimes. Not the mayor in jail, the new one.

Every other article about this is more angled toward that issue, with the 'warning' being a footnote.

But what do I know; this site looks like a legit news source.

I knew a black guy that was like that, but he only hated on the 'thug' like black guys that use broken English or weird slang that all the rappers are using today, yeah, he would use the 'n' word about them in disgust. I wouldn't say he hates himself or his race, just dumb-asses that look and sound ridiculous to him.

Urban dictionary says:

nig-nog This phrase has absolutely _no_ racial dimension, despite appearances. It is a Northern British (e.g. Yorkshire) term referring to a silly person. It does not derive from ni**er and should not be considered racist at all.

But I recall English people referring to blacks as Nig-Nogs. First time I had ever heard it.

Haven't been to New Orleans, but every time i drive an hour north to a concert in Detroit, us white dudes never get messed with. Lots of homeless asking for money, but we just give them booze, and they're happy. /wouldn't want to wander on foot too long there/

When I lived there, 15 or so years ago, it was common knowledge that the police would not go into the projects. So it was closer to "Bring out your dead" than policing. But this was the same police force that had a policewoman put out a hit on her partner for not splitting the drug profits equally.

Yep, I ran a summer program where many of the kids (all were black) would use the term "dim digger" to describe people acting like dumbasses.

Move the Lions, Red Wings and Tigers to different cities.
Burn the whole mess to the ground and salt the earth.
Take notes for future generations to learn what happens when the government turns its' back on an entire city.

On second thought, fark the Tigers. They can burn with the city.

NYC has about one officer for 230 people. that doesn't include school safety cops, traffic enforcement, or auxiliary. Detroit has a comparable ratio.

starting salary of an officer in the Detroit PD is near that of NYC. "can't afford to work in Detroit" = complete nonsense.

and no, you don't deserve a raise when 70% of murders go unsolved and the average response time is over a half hour.

Looks to me like the real news here is the related article on the lower left about a cop actually being convicted of a crime and incarcerated for his actions in the course of duty. I think I could count the number of times I've seen that in the news on one hand.
