Detroit Police Walking A Beat

FRANK - have you lost your mind - or seeing things with rose colored glasses or just seeing things that aren't there - cops walking a beat?

But really - this is not a good omen - or good thing, Detroit Police are undermanned and without proper equipment or traning - so what you saw - maybe - an omen or just a FACT - that the Sixth Precict didnt have enough working scout cars for the officers and so they were put on a beat - or they refused to operate a scout car that didnt have proper working equipment and were punished by walking a beat (plausible reasons) - if you know the condition of the police fleet.

Hopefully you won't see or not see this occuring again..
There are not enough police officers in Detroit to respond to 911 calls in a reasonable time - now, let alone have them on foot.

David,

I can always count on your to bring me back to reality. In the back of my head, I was wondering if this meant the precinct was out of working squad cars.

Which street is that house they squat in? It sound like you're referring to Ashton, but I'm not sure.

Cops were walking southbound on Warwick today, Friday, about 1 p.m. I'm one block up from Ford Road.

Just so you know we (Police Officers) walk Warrendale from about Thanksgiving until after Christmas... Focusing on most of the businesses of course...
