You know the economy is in a free fall when repo men are taking away city property for failing to make their bills. That was the scene this week when DTE Energy officials ordered the repossession of street lights from the city of Highland Park due to overdue bills.
Streets were left in almost complete darkness, which led some owners to say that there promptly burglarized.
However, Highland Park Mayor Hubert Yopp insists that “I had the police chief work up the crime stats, and found that most of our burglaries are taking place during the daylight hours.” That is reassuring.
Fortunately, the Obama Administration has stayed the course in spending billions in Iraq and Afghanistan while cities literally go dark for lack of funding. Again, the disconnect is astonishing. Literally billions of dollars are stolen in plain daylight while cities move closer and closer to the state of nature.
