Their m.o. is to rip your telephone junction box off the wall in order to disable any land line alarm system. Are all committed during daytime hours when victims are at work.
I'm switching to celluar based alarm today, would highly recommend anybody with land line to do the same.
We know who is doing it, group of teens who just moved into a rental on Bishop. They are also slinging dope right in front of their house. Eastern District knows about it, hopefully surveillance units will catch them sooner than later.
referring to one component of LBJ's "War on Poverty." Was it on the East Side, the West Side, one contiguous neighborhood, or several? One conservative posted on the net that it is nine square miles, and is one of the more desolate hoods today.
As a longtime resident of the Detroit area (all of my 68 years) I have fond memories of shopping downtown. I remember Hudson's flagship and the great stores on Woodward. I also remember when Hudson's closed and when (clothing-based) retail ceased to exist in downtown. I don't understand why people think that major retail will succeed in downtown Detroit when urban retail has failed in almost every American downtown where it was tried. St. Louis is a good example. St. Louis had had a renaissance of their city similar to what Detroit is having right now but retail has failed with their last department store closing this year. I can understand pop-ups and small specialty stores but I don't understand why some people think major retail will succeed. If you feel that retail will succeed I would like to hear your reasoning and perspective on this.
Tell me one thing you've seen or heard lately that made you feel good about being a Detroiter. Don't pick anything from the forum but something out in your everyday life. Negative is easy to find but positive is everywhere too.
