    The city refused federal money to hire more police. They said it would mean more negations on wages between the police and The City of Grand Rapids. Instead, we have less police, and they would like to cut even more. Now, there is more crime, shootings, murders, robberies. Less and less of our first defenses are available to the citizens and the businesses in Grand Rapids again. When we had the funds we did have a safer city and less crime? Yes, we did. Our first defenses are police and fire rescue. How does this make any sense to keep cutting our finest dressed in blue here and across the state of Michigan? It doesn't. In the long run it is costing us more in the jails, prisons, more in court costs and time. None of it is getting any cheaper either. Do you realize for every hour and dollar spent on the youth at Glenn Stiel, or Seidman Center how much is saved in the long run in the judicial system? Ask a policemen or policewomen who works for us and spends time at those centers with those youths on the sport teams, or at the center helping with homework. You would be amazed. Every dollar counts and works to protect our city.

    The City Of Grand Rapids, MI may be on the top twenty five highest crime cities in United States next year as well. What is going to happen when we have another rampage, and or five alarm fire with too many causalities? Sorry, the city and the state says…We are broke, but we are busy buying all new equipment, tools, and loaning out money, or have we lost money on our investments, or we can't find the money, it is gone. Now, We are back to square one.
