Can you find a better example of incompetence than the city of Detroit?

Michigan State Police have agreed to take over the investigation of the former Detroit Police Crime Lab, said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy today.

At issue is the scandal-plagued former Detroit Police crime lab near Brush Park, which the city shuttered in 2008. The Free Press reported today that evidence, including live ammunition, blood samples and reports with victim Social Security numbers, were left behind in a building that was open to trespass.

  • Someone dropped the ball on that one! That should've been secured and/or moved to the new location. Now the victims face the possibility of being victims again! Lovely!

  • Oh my goodness. So if someone had their ID stolen because of this, who is liable for damages? The city? Wow. Considering half the population is illiterate maybe the people responsible for moving the stuff  didn't   couldn't read their instructions.

  • Oh that is bad alright but I think it's more of a problem than we know. Houston had problems also and had the whole crime lab shut down for an audit twice.

  • where's that liberal poster that insists unions make better places to live as a whole for the communities?


    that's what happens when everyone gets a job, and has no incentive to actually work or work towards promotion.

    Actually, you can chart the decline of the city pretty closely to the decline of unions.
