Posted on 07/23/2013 11:38:56 AM PDT by kevcol
Detroit City Council member JoAnn Watson on Tuesday introduced a resolution supporting the U.S. Justice Department's investigation into the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin. Federal investigators are looking into whether or not George Zimmerman violated the teen's civil rights when he followed him in his gated neighborhood out of suspicion, leading to an altercation and the fatal shooting.

I wondered where Miss Cleo ended up...
Idiots. Black kids are being slaughtered by other black kids in American cities and these morons are wasting time on this.
no bailout money for Detroit!
They’re in denial that their problems stem from their own BLACK community.
Was the resolution written in cursive?
“People believe what they want to believe”
Perfect saying for this situation and how con men get away with cons.
Part of the deal Obama made with Detroit for the Bail out
It's easier to pass meaningless resolutions than it is to tackle the problems facing the city.
Will Detroit boycott Florida? It’s a pressing matter.
There are humans left in Detroit?
Yeah, the Detroit City Council is really in a position to be offering advice to anyone about anything.
Antonio West - nuff said!!!
Good heavens - no wonder Detroit is going bankrupt.
Is she still being paid?
This is issue advocacy on the part of city council, meant to telegraph to the keepers of the bailout purse that the city council is ready for orders.
Yes a few humans left in the city but obviously none on the city council.
Detroit would go bankrupt just trying to feed that woman.
I guess they don’t have enough to worry about they want to hang a Hispanic.
So this would be different if he just happened to be walking in the same general direction as Trayvon? Is walking in the same direction as black people against the law now? Wow! I better watch out where I walk then. Say I am walking uptown and a black person is in front of me, what is the legal limit before I must change direction? One block? Two blocks?
“..violated the teen’s civil rights when he followed him in his gated neighborhood out of suspicion..”
How does this violate the teen’s rights????
only 2 showed up and were white ? It’s what happens when siblings breed
JoAnn Watson doesn’t need a pension.
Remember "The Mouse that Roared," the brilliant satire that became an equally funny movie starring Peter Sellers, about the Duchy of Grand Fenwick that declares war on the US because they want to avail themselves of the largesse that America always bestows on the countries that it defeats in war.
Well, Detroit just needs to declare war on Florida..send a few busloads of the brothers down to invade Palm Beach..maybe occupy Trump's house, and then sit back and wait for the oranges, and the "juice" to flow up north..
We need to have that same level of outrage with respect to the black on black crime that takes place in our community, Councilman Kenneth Cockrel Jr. said. How many people were shot maybe even shot and killed this past weekend in the city mostly likely by folks who look just like them?[LINK]
Watson said there are many events held regularly to address violence in Detroit. Because the so-called major media does not cover all of the expressions does not mean it does not happen, she said. So thats not correct.
Obviously this is at he behest of the governing conservatives....you know, the ones that ran Detroit for the past 50 years according to MSNBC.
And after that photo was snapped, they both ran to their Prius and got back to Sterling Heights before the sun set.
Obviously didn’t get or understand the memo from the ACLU.
Theres 400 pounds of genius right there!
The Detroit City Council is now powerless to do anything anyway since being taken over by the state of Michigan and an Emergency Manager.
So the remaining council members who haven’t ‘disappeared’ or quit have nothing to do so they will continue what they have always done, and that is carrying on Mayor Coleman Young’s racist policies and continue to drive ALL COLORS out of the city.
And yes, Monic Conyers is still in federal prison.
I’m just sure that Detroit City Council member JoAnn Watson introduced resolutions supporting U.S. Justice Department investigations into Detroit government, union, contractor hanky-panky.
In sum - give us money, or we will burn what remains of our city!
Good Lord! Is there any wonder why Detroit got flushed down the toilet?!!!
Detroit is a complete failure, so why not discuss a straw man, a non sequitur, an illogical-agenda-driven-liberal-fantasy-”cause” like TM?
Obama is a complete failure, so why not ......... etc., etc., etc.
You have to realize that the City Council has become so insignificant in the city of Detroit that they are trying everything to get some recognition. Nobody here in the Detroit area pays any attention to her or the rest of them.
It is obvious that they are missing their trips to see how other cities are doing.
“Yeah, the Detroit City Council is really in a position to be offering advice to anyone about anything.”
They have just effectively proven that they are doubling down on stupid. You know. Typical leftist behavior.
Wow! Could that couple be any (I was going to say ‘whiter’) stupider?
They seem to be so open-minded that their brains long ago leaked out onto their Birkenstocks.
Next thing you know, the left will outlaw Neighborhood Watch programs altogether.
Loons...complete subhuman loons.
The Detroit City Council fiddles while Detroit burns.
That wouldn't surprise me at all. I'm sure they'd make exceptions for organizations that they perceive as like-minded, such as the "Guardian Angels".
There is no reason to bail out Detroit; there is no intelligent life left in the immediate area.
This overfed twit, like that genius Jeantel, is upright, babbling proof that modern man did indeed come out of africa...and left the stupid behind.
“Federal investigators are looking into whether or not George Zimmerman violated the teen’s civil rights when he followed him in his gated neighborhood out of suspicion, leading to an altercation and the fatal shooting.”
She’s cracking me up. She’s done such a great job that Detroit is now filing bankruptcy. And what the heck is all of this “it takes a village” garbage from the left? Either Trayvon was a child or he wasn’t.
They have no money to spend there anyway.
(1) Now that the city is bankrupt, they are completely and utterly powerless. They do even more nothing than they were previously doing.
(2) City councilmen do not represent specific districts of the city, they are elected at large. They have no specific constituency to serve.
