'Justice delayed is justice denied' but it is good news nonetheless. Nice cuff down by the court of appeals to Judge O'Meara who tried to deep six this case.

Gistock---Did you figure "costs" in your equation? An appeal from the Federal District Court to Cincinati "ain't cheap." Costs come off the top.
And when you are in Cincy after a hearing in the Federal Court of Appeals, you HAVE to have lunch at the Maisonette. That's the landmark restaurant in the town. After all, even ACLU lawyers have to eat.

The Rock is right. The Maisonette is a fine establishment, one that still even allow lawyers from Federal Court to patronize.

Hey, the lawyers just ring up billible hours on the job. Working 9 to 5, just like some of us at Dodge Main. But let's not lose sight of the issue here. They didn't change the name from East Detroit to East Pointe for nuthin.' jjaba just guesses the name "Detroit" ain't fun anymore.

jjaba, LOL all the way to my Grosse Pointe bank.

160K is nothing to Eastpoint, it is a pittance. They might have just decided to pay the 160K to avoid several more years of legal fees that would cost more than 160K. Cities make settlements not because they are guilty or innocent, but because it is in their best financial interests to do so.


And I see this thread was started about a whopping $160,000 settlement in Eastpoint, and yet I never saw a thread about the FOUR MILLION dollars the city of Detroit had to pay to a man they wrongfully locked up for 17 YEARS for a crime he did not commit:

http://www.detnews.com/apps/pb cs.dll/article?AID=/20060508/M ETRO/605080343/1003


Or the 1.5 million dollars the city had to pay to a 19-year old man who was wrongfully imprisoned for 2 years:

http://www.wdetfm.org/article. php?id=1143



Both of these settlements occured this month.

Black kids on bikes getting stop by racist Eastpointe KKKops! It's their way to warn them not to pass the Demarcation Line on 8 Mile Rd. I wonder how the racists Hitlerland Livonia KKKops are doing?

Danny--get off of the "Hitlerland" short bus for a while. Black families are moving into Livonia, mostly in the Compton village sub--5 mile/middlebelt, as well as other neighborhoods in east Livonia, and unlike 35 years ago in Detroit, there is no mass exodus of honkys. If you want to really hate a community, why not start in Livingston county. That is where the honkys who don't want to live around "those people" are relocating to.

The settlement amount does seem a little low. Maybe it reflects a lack of greed on the part of the plaintiffs. Hopefully the message has been received by the police department and the residents for that matter.

Eastpointe is changing. It will be interesting to see whether the traditional white flight pattern of declining property values and a retail exodus occurs, or if the city can thrive as a diverse place.

Honkie, from Hungarian, Hunky. There is no correct way to spell the word since it's already a fucked up Hunky.

In Canada, tis honky, eh.

Can we predict East Pointe returns to East Detroit? The schools never did change. There is still an East Detroit High School. (Not to be confused with the shuttered Detroit Eastern High School on Mack and E. Grand Blvd.)

Jams, jjaba knows "Hunkie" is a slur. So is "honkie." They are both lousy words to be slinging around. jjaba is glad Jams tells it like it tis. There's far too much prejudice using real words, without namecalling.

The old Eastern high school is "shutterd", jjaba? I thought the building was actually leveled some time ago.I mean, really leveled. I mean gone. Maybe even a nursing home there now. I will drive by for a peek and will let you know. Trust me?
But I will put some hard-earned gelt on it now. Your call. Shuttered or "long-gone". I say the latter.

Rasputin tells it like it tis. jjaba had a momentary lapse of fantasy about things. Kindly accept jjaba's apologies. He thought he'd read where East Pointe was changing from its mean past. jjaba couldn't pass for white if he tried.

56packman,

I've seen the demographics of the Compton Village at Hitlerland Livonia's north side before. It's already becomming a small black ghetto in about 10 years or so. They are going to make Compton Village into a own personal Compton city like the one just south of L.A. But the white folks over there won't mind except for the racist Hitlerland Livonia KKKops! They sometimes patrol they area for any suspicious activies. Not only in Compton Village apts. but in other parts the norther borders of the neighborhoods Livonia/Redford TWP. area where over 10% of black-folks are beginning to occupy some of the homes there even through the black population in Livonia is now 1.1%

Three black teen from Detroit went a white suburb of Eastpointe to stole a bicycle from a 11 year old kid. If there is NO leader to turn these kids around then there would be generation of the human race. Today will still got instinct of the race a upright hominids in our genes.

Also from this article, related to race but not Eastpointe, is this little diddy:

"HARRISON TOWNSHIP: Deputies seeking info on sex assault suspect

Sheriff's deputies said they want help finding a man who sexually assaulted a woman at knifepoint outside a Harrison Township apartment Monday.

Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said the attack happened about 11 p.m. as the 36-year-old Roseville woman was leaving a friend's home at the Brittany Park Apartments, off Shook Road near I-94.

The attacker -- described as more than 6 feet tall with a heavy build -- forced his way into the woman's car, then forced her into a nearby wooded area with a knife.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call sheriff's detectives at 586-307-9358."

Notice a lack of race in the description. Interesting how if he was a black man they'd be sure to state that. But since he's not, they don't feel the need to do so.

Also note that Al "The Gadfly" Sharpton is coming to Mt. Clemens. That will set back race relations a few years.
