Mail Bag: Shooting in Warrendale

In response to my post about the shooting on Mansfield Street in Warrendale a little over a week ago, CanoeCarver and David L. Malhalab exchanged a lengthy series of replies about why it is that the Detroit Police Department has been much more active on W. Warren Avenue, but not as visible on the residential sidestreets.

Quite frankly, I don't know why we don't see more police patrols on the residential side streets. Maybe it is laziness, as CanoeCarver suggests. Maybe it is the result of management issues, as Mr. Malhalab argues.

The one thing that I do know for certain is that it would probably do everyone a lot of good to bring the issue straight to the man in charge. Detroit's Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick will be at the Norrthwestern District Police-Community Relations Meeting on Monday, March 26 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at Bushnell Congregational Church, 15000 Southfield (southeast corner of Grand River and the Southfield Freeway).

Please stop by and give the Mayor a piece of your mind.
