I grew up in Detroit thru the end of the 50s'thru the 60's and mid 70's. Up until I was 7yrs. my father owned a store in the old Black Bottom area. Detroit definitely has it's own spirit. Till this very day I carry that foundation with me and it had gotten me through a lot of highs & lows. There used to be a TV ad for channel 4 which had various local talent singing Stand Up And Them Em' Your From Detroit. You might have to dodge a bullets, but what the heck...! .... Just gidding....don't get uptight. Plus they just voted in CCW permits within the past year or so...!

Horse, they voted in CCW permits but Detroit doesn't have a bailbondsmen system like most cities do. The indicted can pay 10 percent of their bond, which is unisured by a bonding company, and get out of jail. When they missed their court dates, and sociopaths usually do, nobody looks for them; the police say they don't have the manpower. I'm all for the CCW permits but the city also needs to become bonding company friendly again.

I don't know if I'm reading your entry correct. Can you clarify for me, if you are referring to the bond being posted for and indiviual who was utilizing is ccw to the extent of being arrested for using his weapon. As I understand it.You should plan on being arrested initially after utilizing your weapon as a homicide has occured and it will be labeled a homicide until an investigate has been conducted. Or are you stating that a sociopaths would take the time to be a responsible weapons owner? I not putting words in your mouth, just would like you to clarify so I now where your comming from. Also, Wayne county (Detroit has done just about everything they can to deter the ccw process by holding up paper work and such while stating they don't have the manpower to accomplish the work. I will be very straight forward and make the statement that due to the corruptness of the Wayne county, the city is in the state it is and that's the bottom line.

No, the CCW law is fine. A felon can't get a permit anyway, but then they don't bother.
I was stating something that is not commonly known about Detroit and perhaps some other cities. Detroit practically eliminated bonding companies except for the huge bonds because a defendant can post 10 percent of his/her bond and get out of jail without using a bonding company to do so. Knowing a skip chaser won't be looking for them, they don't show up for their court dates and remain on the streets until they're caught doing either another crime or something stupid like running a redlight.
I didn't mean to tie in CCW and Bonding companies, I was saying the city should deal with the Bonding problem too now that they have permitted CCWs.
