Where is Mayor Bing ???? No comment by him on another child killed in Detroit - is he too busy trying to save Detroit to worry about another child - dead in the City -

I have for years, since Coleman Young - advocated for Mayors to leave City Hall and get on their 'bully pulpits' in every Detroit Church - to speak out against - Murder in Detroit - against children being shot, against the 'black on black violence' that has made Detroit a City to mock and denigrate across the country.

Bing - Godbee who is 'pissed' about a 9 month infant - gunned down, at night, at home - They both shoud be outraged and take that message to churches across the City..

Show the outrage...tell the community - that enough is enough and 'that they are and everyone should be 'mad as hell - and not going to take it anymore'. They should say that telling the police the truth about a crime - is not snitching, its a positive act to protect their families - their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents and their neighborhoods.

Detroit has problems..lack of jobs, lack of quality education, poor public services - and children dying in their homes, shot by a criminal element that is taking advantage of the situation.
These criminals must be stopped and a joint effort between the community and the police is the only way to start and get a hold on the problem...

Speak Out - Mayor Bing, PC Godbee -press conferences is not the way to shake the community out of their apathy, out of the resignation of the situation..The Pulpit is the way...Just Do It. DLM
