They won’t tell it like it is. But I will!
Detroit is bankrupt. All but the shouting is over. Now, the city councilman of a relatively prosperous Detroit suburb is urging some radical steps to keep his community safe.
Richard Fabiszak is a popular man in the community of Hamtramck. His community is surrounded by the failed city that is Detroit. But his proposals are raising eyebrows. He wants Hamtramck to build a wall, 12 to 14 feet high, completely around the community of 20,000 people. Most of the population is white, polish and Middle Eastern.
The community would have gates, of course, with armed guards who required state-issued I.D. to get in.
Detroit is a hell hole, right now, and not many people would deny it.
But doesn’t this idea of a walled-in city sound like the script for a new vampire or zombie movie?
Dear Lord, forgive us!
