We must have a SAFETY FEE for the downtown bars, so that additional police officers can be hired to protect the community. This fee should have been added with liqour license and the size of the establishments.

People should remember that Royal Oak is a city, and to lock their doors and lock up their bikes :)

Royal Oak police want to speak to President Obama about the whereabouts of his imaginary son. It seems that since the Trayvon Martin incident, several of these Police Blotter perpetrators looked just like. Obama’s hypothetical boy.
