As George Will so wisely said about Detroit recently, “You can’t solve the problems, because their problems are cultural.”
“You have a city, 139 square miles, you can graze cattle in vast portions of it, dangerous herds of feral dogs roam in there. You have three percent of fourth graders reading at the national math standards, 47 percent of Detroit residents are functionally illiterate, 79 percent of Detroit children are born to unmarried mothers.”
“They don’t have a fiscal problem, Steve, they have a cultural collapse.”
It's all because those veteran cops were born out of wedlock or, as they say, bastards.
