Everyone knows that Detroit has a crime problem. This is the one thing that is keeping people from moving here.
The city can ill afford to keep the cops that they have left on their payroll.
I'm suggesting that those that have already formed Neighborhood Watches be allowed to carry arms. The criminal element tends to be packed with weapons and have more control on the neighborhoods than the police do, and that needs to change.
I would like to ask if anyone would consider the formation of militias to patrol the neighborhoods in cooperation with the police as a solution to the city's crime problems. With the lack of cops currently on the police force, the citizenry of Detroit must decide to take their communities back from the criminal elements.
