Again, the measure of insanity is voting the same people in over and over, while expecting different results. The taxpayers and citizens of Ann Arbor work hard for their jobs - why is it that the Mayor and his groupies don't seem to be working hard at theirs? We, collectively, are THEIR bosses. It's time to support the AAPD & AAFD, and get these fine departments out of the substandard hole the Mayor & Council members have dug for them. In the meantime, our 'caring' police chief has left us with the wise words of defend yourselves. Thanks. I'll remember that every time I walk past the communal bum bath in front of city hall. Meantime, I look forward to never setting foot in the new 5th street underground Warming Shelter we've built. With the crime sprees, who in their right mind would park their car underground? One doesn't feel safe in the ABOVE ground structures, not to mention the overpriced parking meter spaces, with the carefully tended kiosks (just this morning I watched 2 employees shovel 3 snowflakes at it's base, carefully sprinkle salt, and squeegee the solar panel - how much does THAT cost.) Anyone else tired of the way things have deteriorated? Tired of having the Mayor tell us HE's comfortable with the levels of crime? When have they asked US? The people who pay their salaries, who vote them in. When do we get asked about OUR comfort levels. I know I'm tired of issuing no trespasses to street people coming into my store, of having to spend money to take a CPL class and arm myself, or worrying about my employees when they leave at night. I'm tired. And I'm planning on changing that situation.

So if you count the other "invasions" we're now at like one per day for this year. Seems like we're about due for another "editorial" to tell us how relatively crime-free we are and that we should remain comfortable until further notice.
