Middle School Students Robbed

A string of robberies happened this morning that seemed to target students of Webber Middle School on Detroit's west side. While none of this happened in the Warrendale neighborhood and, as far as I know, no Warrendale residents were involved - I still think this is important to our neighborhood.

The Detroit Police Department is currently operating with a shortage of almost 2,000 police officers. It's no wonder then that when a series of calls starting to pour into 9-1-1, Detroit police weren't able to stop this crime spree as it was happening.

For that reason, I think we should be extra attentive when the City starts to plan for next year's budget. It is way past time for the City to fill those vacant officer positions.
