I agree. Something doesnt add up. Ive never heard of a cop not wanting to see physical evidenceRead Moresupp orting an officers side unless they have a motive they dont want anyone to know about. I was told i should consider moving as well if i didnt like the neighbors yelling and screaming at us almost every time they see us. This sgt didnt violate a dept policy or break any laws. The chief intentionally wont look at the video and his rep and lawyer didnt bring it up knowing its there. Ive tried to go in the dept to show them. I was told to email it but he said he cant say hes gonna look at it because it doesnt matter to anyone. Another incident on april 1 was filmed. Shows same people and same behavior. We were told that wasnt really them doing anything wrong when the girl yelled out the window " you didnt get the police's hint? See whats gonna happen to you now." Its weird that the 2 complainants and some cops keep saying we should move so they will stop doing these things. Apparently , based on a call that was made yesterday, someone at the dept knows im posting this incident and wants it removed.

Fortunately for both you and I the local Patch no longer has a local editor in control who isRead Moreeasily influenced by the powers that be, and that is common with local editors across the board not just Judy Davids. In her own words the Patch is now a "zombie sight" with restrictions only on profanity, or personal attacks not related to politics where the first amendment is at its strongest. I would really be disappointed in the Chief if he acted unilaterally on this, or is under the advice of an attorney(possibly our city attorney) to remain silent as anything he says could make the city of RO liable in a civil suit. Keep posting the facts as they come to light. You are right in that this could use a good investigative reporter from the media. ps I would suggest you re-edit some of your sentences in your posting for clarity, I don't care about spelling and punctuation like the other guy with a big mouth does. Use the green arrow in top right hand corner, if there is none go to more and click repost, the arrow should appear and after you click that you can click edit. You can also use this tool to update the story instead of depending on commentary.

Laura I am not one to give legal advice regarding arbitration, but he does in my opinion need aRead Moregood lawyer preferably one without any ties to the city of Royal Oak. His reputation has been damaged, and to return to his original position without possible future repercussions may not be possible. Kafta would have had a ball with this from what I have read so far.

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. :-)

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.

Nice ad Russell, but we are not the 1%, so we can't swing it. Good luck with sales. I'll beRead Morechanging my 9 volts.

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.
