The Obama Administration awarded Detroit a $1.8 million grant Friday to hire 10 police officers to help the city fight crime, reports the Detroit Free-Press.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced the grant, which will come from the COPS grants awarded by the Department of Justice. The grant pays for a Detroit Police Department officer's salary and benefits for three years.

Holder also announced that Flint, Mich., will receive a similar grant of $1.1 million for six officers. The city was named the county's most violent on a per capita basis in FBI statistics released earlier this month. Other Detroit-area cities to recieve funds include Harper Woods, River Rouge, and Waterfort Township.

Instead they should allow citizens to carry firearms to protect themselves and use the $2 million to clean the mess that's left when the perp gets killed attacking an armed citizen.

Don't forget every LEO hired gets a free house in some run down area in Detroit. What a waste of money. That place needs more than Police Officers. Lets start with the politicians and welfare first.

People still live in/around Detroit? I thought we let that place go back to nature after the collapse of socialism.
