Detroit is having more than a rough time of things, it’s in the middle of a Great Depression.   It’s going through it’s own private Katrina without the slightest offer of assistance; even with all the negative media attention.  Now compound the restless state of emergency the city is in with the declaration that the police precincts will now be closed to the public after 4pm and we, ladies and gentlemen, have a situation!
