First Free Home Goes to Detroit Cop

August 18, 2011  | 

Detroit Police Officer William Booker-Riggs, a mayoral bodyguard, became the first officer to take advantage of Mayor Dave Bing's ambitious plan to make homeowners of 200 city officers.

The home was one of 10 donated by Bank of America. Chase Bank is expected to announce plans to make cash available as a move-in incentive, reports the Detroit Free Press.

With Bing's Project 14 announced in February, the Detroit mayor is hoping the officers who live outside of the city will relocate back and move in to the foreclosed homes.

Gee,the same thing happened in Cleveland several years ago with political supporters of the then mayor getting public land ,at little or no cost,large loans with little down payment and really low interest rates,go figure.This concept must be contagious,reward political supporters with really nice favors.I'll bet all of the major problems in the house were repaired at top dollar before purchase.I wouldn't be surprised if alot of the brass got these favors also with just a few of the rules bent to insure votes.
