I have a strong suspicion that our Detroit mayor is a complete narcissist. A week or so ago, he assaulted a police officer who was serving a subpoena for a case in which this mayor has been implicated. He was charged and arraigned for this assault. The other night, he violated the terms of his release and crossed the Canadian border. For this, he spent Thursday night in the hooskow. He was released today on a $50,000 personal bond.
The subpoena was issued to a friend, or relative or crony who was somehow involved in the mayor's other shenanigans. I don't have the time nor the will to tell you the entire list of complaints against this thug (the mayor.) Suffice it to say he is out of his mind. If you really want to know about this man, you can read about it here.
I'm completely perplexed as to why this man still has supporters in this city. I drive through this city on a daily basis and I'm appalled at what I see. There are pockets of truly beautiful neighborhoods in the city, but there are some devastated areas that make me wonder if I'm not in some third world country. The main reason I bought my gps device is because I can't find street signs on many of the roads I travel in the city. Why do people tolerate this? Why don't they demand propriety and professionalism from their leadership? Since the mayor is a lawyer, how could he think his actions would be tolerated? This guy is in a free fall.
Next month, the governor of our state will hold a hearing to determine if the mayor should be removed from office. Damn Jennifer, just call your gubernatorial colleague from California. Maybe he can get the job done.
