I just saw a newsflash scroll across the bottom of my screen that the Detroit City Council unanimously passed a resolution to request that the feds investigate George Zimmerman for civil rights violations.

Since they are taking the time to debate and pass such resolutions, does this mean that the financial woes of Detroit are improving?

(This is meant to point at how crazy your officials are and not to debate the Zimmerman case. So please don't discuss the Zimmerman Martin case)

The city council isn't involved with the financial situation of Detroit. It's entirely in the hands of the emergency manager.

This needs no pointing out, it is glaringly evident. In fact, the discussion you referenced was a comparatively lucid moment for the clowncil. They are completely dysfunctional.

“We need to have that same level of outrage with respect to the black-on-black crime that takes place in our community,” Councilman Kenneth Cockrel Jr. said. “How many people were shot — maybe even shot and killed this past weekend in the city — mostly likely by folks who look just like them?”

And yet...there is no outrage. There are no visits by Sharpton and Jackson. There are no marches and rallies. No Presidential claims of affiliation with victims. Only excuses and blaming of others.
