    Muskegpn,kalamazoo,GR–all horrible cities now.If you go a week without a firearm murder,it’s a fluke.No improvement forseen,but plenty of downside,that is,more murders at a higher rate in the future.Mayors refuse to clean out the thugs by demolishing low income areas.There is no requirement for governments to provide low kncome housing.That enables more crime and criminals to move in.Bliss and TV 13 iare pushing for more low income housing–they are a hyperliberal mayor and station.They have an agenda.WOOD does as well.The result,if they get their way,will be a well maintained ghetto,with drugs and murder proliferating.
