Tax Cuts & Cops

According to an article in yesterday's Freep, 25 neighborhoods in Detroit might get a 20% reduction in their property taxes. Warrendale is not one of them.

Quite frankly, I'm not worried about someone else in Detroit getting a tax cut while those of us in Warrendale are excluded.

However, I can't help but wonder: if a cash-strapped city like Detroit can find a way to give folks in those other neighborhoods a 20% reduction in their property taxes, why can't they find a way to make sure there's enough police officers, fire fighters and EMTs to respond promptly to every 9-1-1 call?
