Here in Detroit, they shoot people over what flavor of Koolaid they prefer. The Detroit Police Union just came out and said the the city is unsafe for visitors and they recommend people stay away.
They got half the police force they they did 10 years ago, less pay, 12 hour shifts, and violent crime has sky rocketed.
Any excuse to riot is a good excuse here in this city.
Stop by for a visit and see the sights if you don't believe me.
Im sure Chicago isn't much better either considering all the shootings goin on overdey."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

Yeah, I read about that yesterday CW.
Second police chief in a row succumbing to sex scandel?
Sounds like our house speakers in MA who repeatedly get charged with corruption!
I spent some time out your way as a youth, in East Lansing. I loved it!
They had this place called the Bagel/Fragel factory. A fragel was a deep fried bagel coated with cinnamon!
I want one now!"Social networking" is an oxymoron.

No. I went there with my best friend after high school because his real mom taught there and we wanted to travel.
Very interesting experience. I was in a bar band and I also worked at a magic shop demonstrating amatuer stuff. It was called the Necronomicon and it was on the main drag there between Lansing and East Lansing - Michigan Ave I think?
Interestingly, MSU are the Spartans! Same as my high school alma mater."Social networking" is an oxymoron.

Not meaning to break up the reunion... however back on topic:
Seems I remember this idea of riots from past elections (we can learn from history if we choose to).
IMO the rule of law will be a good thing if the rioters get out/hand and usurp the basic tenants of the founding documents: One has the right to xxxxx, ONLY so long as it does not infringe on another's rights to the same. Rioting which includes criminal activity is infringing on another's rights to the same. I hope the police arrest them, charge them, and they have to WORK to pay $$$ for their irresponsible choices.GA-HVAC-Tech

He's not that powerful or influential. We've been on that path for the last 50 years or more. Actually, I tend to think it's cyclical anyway. Wealth accumulates and builds up top due ot greed, education and hman nature... until you have a big finiancial crisies and a huge recession or depression, then government bails it all out, redistributes wealth and 3 or so generations and 50 years later you're back where you started.

Cars up on blocks, burned out houses, no street lights, houses stripped of siding half way up. They even bolt down the manhole covers or they would be stollen. I drive by occupied homes that have huge holes in the roofs, collapsing porches and chimneys.
If you live in Detroit, be prepared to dress like a bum, don't have anything nice showing...including designer eyeglasses. The question isn't if you are going to be a victim, it is when.
Dont own a van either...if its nice they will steal it, if its a POS they will break in just to take a dump in the back.
I am not embellishing in the slightest, if anything I am understating.
Remember, the cops will not show up if they are called for anything short of a homicide or bank robbery. And if they do, it will be a half hour to 45 minutes...believe it.
Saw a dude fall out of tree down there one time and smacked his head on the side walk...sounded like a roto tom drum. I called the police, and 45 minutes later a fatass female cop came and sat in her car. 1 hour and 15 minutes later, an ambulance showed up. The dude was still unconcious laying in a pool of blood and urine (convulsion)."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding
