Detroit Rock City...

Detroit has it's share of problems.  Detroit is dangerous.  I wonder why Detroit doesn't make the news in the way that Chicago does?  Do you 'spose it's because Detroit has had Democrat mayors for over 50 years and they can't take care of the violence problems.  Or the economy problems.  I'm pretty sure that isn't the case.  It's Bush's fault.

Enter At Your Own Risk: Police Union Says ‘War-Like’ Detroit Is Unsafe For Visitors

DETROIT (WWJ) – The men and women of the Detroit Police Department believe the city is too dangerous to enter, and they want citizens to know it.
Detroit Police Officer Association (DPOA) Attorney Donato Iorio said officers are holding the “Enter At Your Own Risk” rally at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in front of Comerica Park to remind the public that the officers are overworked, understaffed, and at times, fearful for their lives.
“Detroit is America’s most violent city, its homicide rate is the highest in the country and yet the Detroit Police Department is grossly understaffed,” Iorio told WWJ’s Kathryn Larson. “The DPOA believes that there is a war in Detroit, but there should be a war on crime, not a war on its officers.”

Detroit police chief steps down amid sex probe 

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's police chief stepped down Monday after a week of embarrassing revelations about a sexual relationship with a subordinate, forcing the city to search for a fifth leader in four years for a department dealing with one of the nation's highest violent-crime rates.
Ralph Godbee was hired two years ago to replace a predecessor fired following an affair with a female officer who allegedly also had a relationship with Godbee. His departure extends the revolving door of leadership in a cash-strapped city. Detroit's next chief will be its 10th since 1991, and several of those were forced out amid allegations of wrongdoing.
"Not having a stable head makes the rest of it unstable," former Detroit Police Chief Isaiah McKinnon said of the musical chairs in the city's top cop's office. "The officers are going to go out and try to do their jobs, but you need a stable head."

List of Detroit Mayors.  You'll notice that they have all been Democrats since 1962.  Every one of them.  Yep, must be Bush's fault.

List here.

Oh WOW!  Chicago has had Democrat mayors for over 80 years.  Well, the current mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is not affiliated with any political party....  Do you believe that?  He's also their first Jewish mayor.

List here.

Philadelphia has had a Democrat as mayor for 60 years...

List here.

Washington D.C. since 1961...

What does it mean?  Nothing, really.  Well, maybe it does mean something.  But you'll have to figure it out on your own.  :)

Stay safe.
