Detroit goes dark
Rampant political corruption, labor-union greed, liberalism, and utter incompetence have turned America's 5th largest city into a pitiful shell of a city with only 60% of the population of 10 years ago. Entire Detroit neighborhoods have been totally abandoned, even by crack dealers and gangs.
In an effort to cut infrastructure and public service costs, the city will be cutting power to half of the 88,000 street light in the city's outlying areas. This is to coax the few remaining residents to concentrate toward the urban areas where police, fire, and ambulance service can afford to go. Certainly as darkness takes over the city each night, so will the criminal elements. I guess those folks who live in the darkness are on their own when the gangs kick in their doors.
This is the inevitable culmination of urban liberalism.....poverty, disrepair, crime, decrepitude, hopelessness, and despair.....in short, Detroit. As long as democrats are in charge of Detroit, don't look for much improvement....or street lights.
