FTFA: "These are the men and women who we look to protect us... and police officers can't protect you if they're not there. "

Waitaminnit.... Didn't the Supreme Court determine the job of the police wasn't to protect you, but to investigate and prosecute crimes?

Oh yeah, they did.

I met someone from Detroit a few weeks ago and I expressed my desire to visit the Motown site.

He said that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES, NONE! that I should go there even on a sunny Wednesday at noon.

He said the city is collapsing and only relatively safe place was the Renaissance Center and that's heavily guarded/patrolled.

Ah, c'mon. It's a fairly common logo on a police car, "To serve and Protect". Serve who and protect who is not specified.

dumbobruni: FLMountainMan: 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.

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.


As someone who has ventured into the wrong sections of Baltimore more than a few times, I have to say that it doesn't matter how many cops you flood into the area. If the cops are inadequate or don't give a shiat, all they do is provide the illusion of safety.

/saw a bank robbery in northern Baltimore
//cops politely waited for the guy to run away before entering the bank

Kit Fister: logistic: Also, check out the comments to the article. Damn.

Yikes. And that cole dude appears to be black. When even your own start calling for your ass to be shipped out, you really went wrong somewhere.


One of the comments talk about sending the blacks back to Africa; why is what he said harsh but Snoop Lion calling Romney a 'white nubian' getting a pass?

This is not a political question and I don't really expect an intelligent answer - this being FARK and all - but still, racism is racism a Snoop Lion is a racist for saying it.

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


Consider the source: FTA: Detroit Police Officer Association (DPOA) Attorney Donato Iorio said ...

First, he's an attorney, so he's going for the hyperbole, and he represents the Police Officer's Union. There's just a lot of (understandable) butthurt that the cops are doing 12 hour shifts for straight time wages.

It's not likely that cops are going to show up at a crime scene, unless there is a body to be removed. This has been going on for years, and the labor strife is not making any noticable change. Violent crimes, however, have been occuring more frequently. The murder rate in Detroit is definitely higher this year. That being said, the protest is going on Downtown, in front of Comerica Park, which is one of the safest areas in the city. Just gonna scare off the suburban tourists, who are bringing in money for overpriced food, drink, and parking downtown. Way to go, guys!

Notice that the attorney says that the cops can't live on their wages, but doesn't state how large those wages are currently.  The cops with about 5 years on the job are making about 50k per year IIRC.

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.


How's Oakland this time of year?

weltallica: Crime goes up.
Property values go down.
Fatcats buy it up supercheap.

Follow the money.


Instead of trying to renovate those crack houses... an investor should think more long-term. Buy up all of those low down dirty houses (block by block) and do controlled burns for Fire Department training. Hell, you can even charge for it.

Cheaper to remove ashes than entire structures.

Sit on the empty lots until things get back under control.

Profit!

In other words... BURN THOSE MOTHERF**KERS OUTTA THERE!!!

I live just North of Detroit in Ferndale. I honestly don't think there is much danger if you are not involved in a gang or there to buy drugs.

So many hipster friends have moved to Greektown, the Eastside, and near Wayne State, I can't see how it could be that bad. I've even started regular bike rides up and down Woodward. It just seems like if it was really that dangerous, myself or people I know would have had something happen to us by now.

An outsider in Detroit is either in a gang, there to buy drugs, or will be assumed to be there as part of a gang or to buy drugs by the gangs and drug dealers, and dealt with accordingly.

/if you ain't from there, don't go there
//except to join a gang or buy drugs, of course

From another recent article on Detroit:

"This is not just a law enforcement issue," Godbee said in Sunday's statement. "The increased prevalence of individuals choosing to use acts of violence to settle disputes between friends, acquaintances and more disturbingly family members must be addressed, if we are to stop the violence in our communities."

Godbee is the Dertoit police chief.

It's a cultural leper colony.

Wall it off and seal it up before it spreads.
