DETROIT (WWJ) – The men and women of the Detroit Police Department believe the city is too dangerous to enter, and they want citizens to know it.
Detroit Police Officer Association (DPOA) Attorney Donato Iorio said officers are holding the “Enter At Your Own Risk” rally at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in front of Comerica Park to remind the public that the officers are overworked, understaffed, and at times, fearful for their lives.
“Detroit is America’s most violent city, its homicide rate is the highest in the country and yet the Detroit Police Department is grossly understaffed,” Iorio told WWJ’s Kathryn Larson. “The DPOA believes that there is a war in Detroit, but there should be a war on crime, not a war on its officers.”
Iorio says the once 2,000 strong force is shrinking rapidly; since the start of summer, hundreds of officers have left the department.
“These are the men and women who we look to protect us… and police officers can’t protect you if they’re not there. Officers are leaving simply because they can’t afford to stay in Detroit and work 12 hour shifts for what they are getting paid… These police officers are beyond demoralized, these officers are leaving hand over fist because they can no longer afford to stay on the department and protect the public,” he said.
And that’s why Iorio cautions those who enter the city to be wary.

Wow this is tuff. Is there a certain group responsible for this increase in crime. Could we maybe target them so the rest of the city can live in peace?
Hey Cole so I guess you are faking it in you profile pic...
Can we go back to muskets and make the production of ammunition illegal as in the components for it no longer to be mined??
solution? call in the National guard, start shooting everyone that shoots at you and clean the house up, Get out the bulldozers and fill up the holes in the city with dead nogs and build over the dead and now useful nogs.
Maybe if Detroit sent all the niggers back to Africa the crime rates would plummet
As long as the Native Lowlifes keep killing each other there is no downside. They have the same mentality as the Mudslimes. Less ammo for the rest of us to expend.
