…it’s a perfect example of why Detroit is where it is.
The Detroit City Council has passed a resolution calling for a federal investigation to see if civil rights charges are warranted against George Zimmerman.
During their meeting on Tuesday, council members unanimously passed the resolution, sponsored by Councilwoman JoAnn Watson. The resolution led to discussion by council members over the need for city leaders and others to focus more on violence in Detroit.
Zimmerman was acquitted July 13th of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Not only shouldn’t our tax dollars be pissed away into this abyss of incompetence and public-sector degeneracy, anyone who suggests same deserves to be hounded from public life by every means available.
The Detroit City Council destroyed some $20 billion in private-sector wealth – and that’s a very charitable estimate. That $20 billion merely represents the amount of money it borrowed from bondholders and can’t pay back. It doesn’t include the businesses its policies destroyed or the property values its incompetent management – not to mention its policies – degraded.
And in the wake of its destruction, amid the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history, these blithering imbeciles have decided that riling up the mobs who ran decent citizens out of that city over the last 50 years is more worthy of their time than attempting to put its fiscal house in order.
When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
