are these stories even related? The La Shish story touches on a raid a year ago and says nothing about drugs. This sounds alot like a melding of two stories to come up with something interesting... like the National Inquirer.

I think it's bogus.

No the two stories aren't related other than breaking at the same time, never said they were. But they're both big news for an area where so many complain about ineffective law enforcement.

Should be very interesting to see how the LaShish story ends up.

So, if this was drug-related, does LaShish become a cop shop?

The LaShish arrest and the drug bust are completely unrelated, people. But an interesting pair of developments.

I have always thought the Drug Police in DPD are superior, but they regulate trafficing, which does nothing for the spin-off crimes, which are the majority of our issues in the city. Then again, if you can cut off the supply or make it difficult for the dealers to operate and supply in the City, it becomes less of a haven. I wish this kind of stuff happened much more often.

I also wish, we could hear after every shooting that the perp is caught and jailed. If the rest of the department were run like this special unit, we'd be halfway there.

the bottom line is that Detroit is too big of a city to keep all the rodents out of it...

Really, the DPD should be focussing on keeping the drugs out of the more populated neighborhoods.. instead of worrying about supply..

As big as this city is, there will ALWAYS BE a drug supply... lets not make the situation worse than it has to be... if you keep them on their side of town and never let them come over to ours... i think you will see a stark difference in how neighborhoods turn out.

All thats going to happen now is that the dealers that didnt get screwed are going to be able to get more money for the supply they got... which will get more people into the lucritive drug game.

Honestly...isnt this city big enough for everyone??? every city has a red light district and a place to get good shit at 3 AM.
I know I am completely the devils advocate here... but honest to god, our current way of handling this ISNT WORKING!.. If someone wants some blow RIGHT NOW... they can get it if they know where to go... the only difference is now they will have to bust out 3 more stores windows tonite to pay for it. wow... what a victory.

If these people had a place with greatly reduced enforcement, a place to STAY where they wouldnt bother the people who want no involvement... i think it would work out for everyone. It would free up valuable police resources to protect the people that will actually RESPECT the law... not wasting it..

I think that in this case, this war can be settled with some sacrifices. Its kind of like trying to rid Rome of Christians...

why not let the crackheads live their lives in their own part of town and dont bother them... and get real strict if they bother you... It would be easier to handle if they had a border to defend... Right now you can kill one, and 5 more little guys pop up...
3 get poped within a year... 2 go big time and whats your net result... one gets busted the other gets poped, and 7 more little guys pop up to take their business...

Prohibition never worked... EVER...

Lets face it... I dont think there is another way to fight this battle but to herd them somewhere... so they can leave the rest of us alone..

That's all fine and good but they still have to pay for the product, so how/where are they going to get the $$? Even if prices come down due to legalization the end stage of addiction doesn't lend itself to earning money for junk.

edit: Maybe prescriptions for maintenance level dosages would work until some type of treatment/crave blocker gets developed.

Most crack heads cant afford cars... and if they could, they already pawned them for crack... if they were forced to live in a part of town among other crackheads... its not like there wont be people still making legit money in that part of town... but really.. it will probably end up being a prostitute being ripped off by a crack head... or some suburban kid looking for weed in a new escalade.... really nobody's fault but their own for going there in the first place.

But its way better than people considering the WHOLE CofD this way... which they currently do...
the good people here need a place to live in peace..

Lets face it.. .until they do come up with a crack crave blocker... crackheads are pretty much as good as dead anyway... no amount of charity will ever help them... it really is a shame, i have had several friends that I used to work with that have fallen into that lifestyle, and yes they have times they quit for a year or even more... but then you dont see them around while their out on a 7 day bender... its incurable...

But you start to feel much less remorse for them once you wake up one day and about 15,000$ worth of roofing tools are gone with your truck.

Lets face it... God didnt create Hell for no reason... he needed a place other than heaven to put these pieces of shit in... where they wont polute the greatness of heaven. maybe we can learn something...

This is my favorite line:

It should have read "the bust was a result of the authorities doing their job." Becuase I believe the job of the authorities is to eliminate criminal activity.

lol no shit... i got mine back... last year... they found it off the Southfield Freeway...
has the truck been there for a while or just wound up there?

O... the best part is when the police actually FIND your vehical... they impound it first before giving it back to you... you pay the 250$ at the impound yard... and then you get to look in a line of tables where you can buy all your stuff back... they got your rims... tires... radio.. seats.. ect... you can buy it all back right there at the yard :-)... yippee

"they impound it first before giving it back to you"

actually when a vehicle is impounded for any reason (abandoned, accident, etc) a VIN check is done - that's often when the stolens are found

the bit about buying your parts back doesn't make sense, though - if it's in or on the vehicle when impounded it still should be - police are supposed to do a quick inventory - usually check off boxes on the PD tow slip

... the impound yards arent stupid...

Usually when your car gets stolen i guess.. your probably missing the tires, rims, radio.. ect.

The impound yard must make a mint selling this stuff back to people...

remember that you need tires to drive your car out of the lot after you pay the 250$ for them to do their "VIN check" or whatever... even though my registration and insurance were in the glove box...

It's the police departments that do the VIN checks. Impound yards don't have access to that info and any registrations or insurance found in the vehicle aren't necessarily accurate.

I've never heard of an impound yard selling parts this way. I know they can charge for storing and tagging items but not outright parts sales - they would have to have specific state licensing to do so and anyone selling recycled or salvage parts has to have on file, by law, the VIN of the vehicle the part came from and how they acquired it.

not all of it is from recycled cars... some were new, though many of it is just used parts.. and im sure they are liscenced to do so...

all i know is, if you want your car to roll out of that lot without a tow truck.. you might as well pony up an extra 60$ per rim and 25$ per tire, and slap em on your car...

the yard I was at had salvage vehicles in the back of the lot, im sure they have made use of their space wisely if the impound business slows down...

maybe i got screwed... i wouldnt be suprised... but the whole ordeal was such a kick in the ass to my nerves i really didnt give a shit, i just wanted my car back..

Here is an interesting report I found online when our van was stolen. http://72.14.203.104/search?q= cache:k5b1Qn_nJFAJ:www.ci.detr oit.mi.us/Legislative/CharterA ppointments/AuditorGeneral/Rep orts/PAT%2520Towing%2520Contra cts%252012-2003.pdf+detroit+au to+recovery&hl=en&gl=us&ct=cln k&cd=16 If the link doesn't work I put detroit auto recovery in google and it's the first untitled document when you scroll down the page. We ended up getting stuck with one of he worst, Michigan Auto Recovery. Because our van was in good shape they stuck it to the insurance company for 550 dollars including 5 bucks a mile to deliver it back to the east side.

And here I thought that this had something to do with the "seatbelt enforcement crackdown" that they've been carping about for the past several days now...
