This is problematic.
More scrap metal for China.

Oh, good grief. We’re outraged because they don’t keep lights on where no one lives?
Village status is straight ahead.
Shrink by half?
Half as bright?
Half as tall?
Half as many?
How many can it be when half don’t work anyway?
They are saving the planet, polar bears, kittens, bunnies, and unicorns.
If the city of Detroit plans to reduce the amount of operational lights to 46,000 then they need to only turn off about 6,800 of them.
That’s ok, it’s such a safe place.
Wasn’t it as recent as about 1980 that Detroit was the 5th largest city in the U.S.?
Probably need to brush up on night and urban fighting tactics before visiting...death (in addition to Dodges) imported from Detroit!
There was another article on this earlier today that went deeper into the mayors reasoning for this action. I can’t find the article, and it’s frustrating, because the reasoning is to force the populace to consolidate in the city. To force the populace to move into the lit areas for security, and for their own good.
It isn’t of the same title, but the story is the same, but with the backstory, as well some supporting information concerning some important Leftist movers, and shakers that want to take the theory beyond detroit, and make it a national cause.
I can’t find it. Hopefully somebody else was wise enough to put it to their ‘puter, or at least a link.
I find this dreadful. The real purpose of the central planners is to force people in declining areas to move to more populated areas. By turning the lights out, the feral youth will be attracted to these less populated areas to prey on those living there. Crime in these areas will increase until the only people left in these areas will be the criminals. Almost all affected by this are black. This is very, very wrong.
>It is hard, but perhaps they can help shrink the city to a more managable area.
Oh nonsense - they couldn’t STOP the city from shrinking unless all of the Dems & other liberal trash were strung up on those 40,000 poles and hanged.
Detroit: what happens when liberals mismanage a city into their “utopia” for fifty years.
Wonder when they’ll all be off.
typical liberal thinking: you can’t afford things as they are, sooooo....
borrow 160mil in order to save 10 mil/year (16 year payback) and claim you’re saving money.
if the folks of detroit are dumb enough to swallow this, then they get what they deserve
