Detroit Is Laying Off Cops to Rehire Them With Federal Money

The choice isn’t between guns and butter anymore. It’s between exploding entitlements and the basic services that justify government’s existence. From the liberal “Model City,” Detroit:

A high ranking source in the Detroit Police Department says about 100 police officers will be given layoff notices during meetings on Wednesday.

Fortunately for any law-abiding citizens who have not yet managed to escape this frozen jungle, the cops will be hired right back again with federal money.

Currently, the department receives universal hiring grants from the Department of Justice.

DPD plans to repurpose those grants to be used to pay officers, but the only way to eventually hire them back is to lay them off first.

The move will take the officers off the general payroll and help Detroit’s finances.

What happens when Obama et al. finish fundamentally transforming the whole country into Detroit? Maybe the UN will pick up the tab for basic services. Or maybe law and order will completely collapse, as in the prototypes for Hope & Change, Zimbabwe and Venezuela. If the Moonbat Messiah is reelected, it won’t take long to find out.

What liberalism has left of Detroit.

    Check out Hardcore Pawn on TruTV cable network…a Jewish
    family running a big pawn shop in Detroit and their dealings with assorted porch monkeys and their wigger
    counterparts…

    Reminds me of the “Golden Rule;” whoever has the gold, makes the rule. Pretty sad that you can’t pay your own cops and to be so beholding to the federal government. After all, the government has shown such great ability to deal with emergencies….like an oil spill in the Gulf or responding to a hurricane……
    The folks in Detroit are probably used to it by now.

    Thanks Obama. Local police forces are already notorious enough for being their own unofficial, yet functional mafias. Federalizing them will only make them worse. Anybody remember the SS and the Brown Shirts? Apparently not… and nobody cares.

    Anyone care to lay odds on Detroit not reporting 100 as unemployed (in order to help bammy’s numbers) but definitely logging them as hires (for the same reason). Should be a net of 0, but I bet Detroit shows -100 unemployed and +100 new hires. For a net of 200 jobs gained.

    Before some well meaning troll decides Jester is full of it, review this video of an anointed one speech.

  6. Dude, this is precisely why when I moved away from that black hole, I vowed never to return as a resident. They keep saying [new mayor] Bing is doing such a bang-up job. Yeah, right.

    Will this be the beginning of that Domestic Army Obama was talking before he was elected?

    I smell a troll.

    You can keep your racist comments to yourself in the future.

    The City of Detroit is about to face a state imposed Emergency Financial Manager (EFM) or Bankruptcy.

    I would say this is a bit of strategery… does it matter when filing bankruptcy just how big the debt burden is, of course not, in fact the more the merrier. The more the that debt you can pawn of onto “other revenue sources” like state, regional and federal taxpayers the brighter your future will be as they continue to spend beyond their means.

    Question
    Are these considered jobs saved ?
    Or jobs created ?

    sounds like building a government police force.

    The police then will not be responsible to the local government but to the federal authorities.

    This is nothing more then another SS or Gestopo in the making.

    @Bob Roberts
    Personally, I do not think sweeptheleg is a troll. He is stating an opinion that many people do not want to hear or see. Unless he can be proved incorrect, it would be wrong to call him a racist because he decided to critisize blacks.
