>state law prohibits the city from providing cash payments or tax credits to any of the overtaxed residents OMFG. And they’re giving the homeowners fucking Section 8 Vouchers. Even if they wanted to give back the $600M, doing so would further bankrupt the city and drive up taxes etc. This is a perfect storm of corruption. Even Louisiana is impressed

I smell a lawsuit…that’ll cost a lot more than that.

I’m starting to think that maybe, just maybe, Detroit has not been managed very well…

And no one will go to jail, I bet. Oops, my bad! Steal a snickers and your life is over, steal livelihoods and at worst they’ll just make you give it back.

So if I understand correctly, some homeless people are made homeless by no fault of their own?
