    I was just at that precinct 2 weeks ago because my house had been broke into twice within 6 months. Cops did not even respond when called twice.I don’t think much could have been done to prevent this unless they prevent people from entering should be more like the city county building downtown now.My prayers go out to the families of ths tragic incident. May God help us what is happening during this horrible economy.

    I heard the comment on WWJ this morning that this shooting happened because michigan is an “open carry” state; following that logic we now need to outlaw all cameras because if no one had a camera child pornography could not be made. While we ar at it lets outlaw all motor vehicles because as we all know it is the cars fault the drunk driver ran over somebody
