Bankrupt and Murders Every Day, Detroit Leaders talk about Zimmerman instead of fixing own problems

Detroit has filed for Bankruptcy. There are murders nearly every day. so what are the city leaders doing about it? They are not doing anything, instead, they are passing resolutions about George Zimmerman who was found not guilty of murder in the self defense shooting of Trayvon Martin...

from Fox News:

Detroit's City Council has come under fire for spending time this week writing, voting and passing a resolution supporting a federal investigation into George Zimmerman instead of focusing on its own financial blunders and ballooning crime rate.
Zimmerman, a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted July 13 in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin.
The unanimous vote by the members of the Detroit council on a crime that took place six states and hundreds of miles away came just two days after the Motor City’s latest gun-related death – its 176th homicide of the year.
Tuesday’s resolution called for a federal investigation to see whether civil rights charges are warranted against Zimmerman.
The measure, sponsored by Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, jump-started a discussion in Detroit over what some called the city’s lack of leadership and the need for city officials to first patch up problems in their own backyard.
