DETROIT (WWJ) – It has come to this: Even some criminals sympathize with Detroit’s cops.

Baron Coleman thought he’d heard it all in his 17 years patrolling the streets reports WWJ’s Chrystal Knight.

But then came the city’s bankruptcy, a 10 percent cut in police salaries, followed by support from a most unlikely corner – the bad guys.

Coleman says when some of the criminals saw them take a pay cut they were in shock. He says they were arresting guys … who said they could not believe our city would do us like this.

Coleman says he replied “Thank you caring,” with a smile. Coleman thinks its funny because he doesn’t like communicating with a person who has just committed a robbery about how sad his life is.
