How about commissioners who only walk from the parking lot to get to city hall completely ignoringRead Moret he Stardream Plaza (what I call it) which is a JOKE of a park with only one bench donated by the family of the founder of Nutrifoods and only two isolated benches on the path leading to the fountain. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Kids and their parents sit on the walls and Don Johnson says YOU prefer that to any bench. I believe he thinks that we are no different than the inhabitants of the primate exhibit at the "Huntington Woods" not the RO Zoo. Is he right? As for our Mayor and commission just throw them enough bananas to feed their campaign chests and they will approve a bar, an abatement, or a brownfield application just for you. You heard the order. If you want a play area, and sand box next to your cage go out and clean it yourself! We got other things to do like helping Arts Beats and Eats so we can enjoy the perks we get from them. Remember, your parks are no longer a tax paid given, they are merely perks. So clean up your own perk we have AB&E, and a CBD with an "entertainment district" to maintain and keep safe with more downtown cops.. At least they all know how to show appreciation for us. When is the last time you took one of us out to lunch, eh?

Ron, are you suggesting RO proper is falling down to the TWP level, or vice versa?

So to stick with your theme: Did you move out of Clinton Twp because your friends thought it wasRead Morenam ed after former President Bill Clinton?

Interesting conundrum you present Jim.

I have no problem whatsoever putting everything I have on the internet and youtube. I'll think itRead Moreov er. I cant believe the city and the police dept reads these comments every day and has nothing to say. Or the incredibly impulsive stupid neighbir and his girlfriend. Why wouldnt you people want to say something? If all of you think you're so right about everything you've done wrong why not say so? Heres a great place to explain yourselves.
Nicole Bolton April 23, 2014 at 07:42 AM
Ron, unless you want this feed flooded with posts about the "pitbull" breed I recommendRead Moreyo u just focus on your belief that this officer was fired for no reason. I'm curious why none of his officer friends who are supporting him are rushing to his defense? I realize that can't post under their names but why not use an alias?
RON Ostrodamus April 23, 2014 at 11:12 AM
Good point Nicole. Though I have trouble understanding everything Lauren posts especially about the Read Morepit bull situation, the neighbor on the ladder, the leash and who did what you have to give her credit for having the courage to speak out. e That no one else has spoken up for this officer also speaks volumes so I am trying to reserve judgement. I hope this doesn't turn into a "Sharpton-Tawanna Brawley" type of situation if you remember that wild goose chase Sharpton got suckered into. As for lawyers I feel Feiger is just as guilty as cherry picking his cases these days as the others. I would also suggest Michael Allen Schwartz a former associate of Feiger whom I knew personally, had a falling out with politically, but still respect his skills as an attorney. As far as other officers speaking out you have to understand the culture of any police department that in some ways parallels the culture of a street gang, and in other ways a "city hall" You can make a lot of enemies by breaking the unwritten "code of silence" wherever you work, or live for that matter.

Agreed. This is on the county as they maintain the lights on Eleven Mile.
Brett A. Hermance April 18, 2014 at 06:59 PM
a yellow blinking light means stop and proceed with caution. This can be a rolling stop. :-)
RON Ostrodamus April 18, 2014 at 10:14 PM
I disagree Brett, a yellow light means slow down and use caution nothing more. I am personallyRead Morethoro ughly disgusted with Don Johnson and our do as little as possible mayor who both apparently believe that walk lights both downtown and across eleven mile are timed long enough for seniors, handicapped and small children to navigate across when all the while cars are turning in front of them. These two characters for appearances support our LGBT (so do I), but obviously they both do not give a steaming crap about those of us who are not able to run the hundred in less than four minutes. This is apparently what is required of you while using any downtown RO walk light! OTHER more progressive cities thoughout the country have recognized this problem and corrected it to the relief of their growing senior and handicapped populations.

With all the molotov cocktails thrown into homes by homicidal maniacs this sounds like a good idea. Read MoreSo is the idea of a cop on every corner. Maybe someday if the price comes down, but for now the system costs more than the homes that need them the most can sell for. Insurance companies can help by giving substantial discounts. You cannot always legislate intelligence. HUD buildings by the way require sprinklers to my knowledge.
