Detroit's Mayor Bing made sure to point out how "gun culture" was what was really the matter with Detroit and why they have such a huge crime problem. So you figure that gun related offenses would be a priority, perhaps even a top priority. And, say, if someone called saying that their gun was stolen it would merit an investigation of some sort.

You'd be wrong:

Detroiter Rachelle Guyton said she called 911 around 6:30 a.m. Saturday to report that her 2003 Chrysler Town & Country minivan had been stolen from an apartment building in Palmer Park — but it wasn’t the van she was worried about.

“I have a gun under my car seat, and when I called the police department to explain this to them and try to have them help… they didn’t give me any attention. They told me I had to wait until 8 o’clock to call back. What if someone gets shot with this? What if a child gets this in his hand? I’m responsible, and I just can’t have that on my conscience,” Guyton told WWJ’s Terri Lee.


Call for a cop, call for a pizza, see which one arrives first in Detroit (and, given that lots of pizza places have stopped delivering to Detroit because their drivers keep getting robbed and/or killed... that's saying something!)

I'm starting to think that liberals have no intention of following up on anything they say even mere seconds after saying it, unless it involves depriving Conservatives of rights and then, whoo boy, can't dedicate enough resources to that!
