Ypsilanti police investigating series of vehicle vandalism incidents

By Sven Gustafson

Ypsilanti police were investigating two separate incidents Saturday in which someone threw a brick or rock through vehicle windshields on the same street.

Police said they don’t know whether the two incidents are related.

The first incident was reported around 12:45 a.m. Saturday when a woman told police that someone threw a brick through her vehicle’s window on the 200 block of South Huron Street.

Police also responded at 11 p.m. to a similar report of a rock thrown through a car window on the 0 block of South Huron.

No one has been arrested in either incident.

In another incident, someone reported a car damaged in a new-car lot at a dealership on the 0 block of East Michigan Avenue around 11:19 p.m. No arrests have been made in that case.

This is a prime example of the very REAL problems facing the city. Our police department does an absolutely incredible job despite the fact that our city manager and elected officials have decimated its staffing level. Our police department is outnumbered and out-armed by the ever-increasing thugs and gang-bangers that control our streets and neighborhoods. Instead of concentrating their time and resources on these very REAL problems, our city manager and elected officials expend energy and public funds on ridiculous matters such as one-way vs. two-way traffic patterns, round-a-bouts, negotiating to bring in a new and improved Family Dollar store, and so-called "master plans." If our city manager and elected officials continue to fail to recognize how any why serious crime and gang violence are quickly killing any chance the city has for its future survival, all of these other INVENTED initiatives are utterly meaningless. The time is well past to focus our time and limited resources on public safety.

No the real problem is why somebody has so much hate that they get a kick out of this ? Where is the mental health centers to reach out and help--yes help--these sick people. No, just lock them up and forget them. Problem is another sicko soon takes their place.

YPD needs help. They are over worked and under paid.

Likely understaffed too. Where is the state help ? Oh yeah, they are out planing and building roundabouts.

I know, its great innit! When a blog fails to report on this type of police blotter tripe in Ann Arbor, I too feel safer! It doesn't mean the stuff doesn't happen, but hey----- that's just some stupid data point. Michiganders like us don't believe in data!
