Leave the Driving to Them?

Finally the bus drivers have had enough! As I wrote in April, the City Council is sitting on an $11 million grant for security on our buses and refused to award it to the Wayne County Sheriffs Dept. to pay for deputies to ride the DDOT buses. Last night another driver was assualted and, this morning, they walked out in protest. I can not blame them one bit. The city has cancelled all morning routes and they are quoted as saying “they are not happy” with this development. Huh??

When are the citizens of Detroit going to say enough is enough with this council? It’s not only the assualts and stabbings, my sources told me two bus drivers have been raped! You won’t read that in the press. Now, those people that depend on the bus for their transportation to get around are stranded this morning and the city has no one to blame but themselves! Recall all of them that voted no on this issue!
