US cities in peril

Detroit police patrols in 20% of city: expect bankruptcy in 2011

Camden, America’s second most violent city, lays off half of police department.

If police stop patrolling an area then organized crime will move in and take control, just like in favelas in Brazil. Don’t think it can’t happen here.

Police now charging for responding to accidents, sometimes sending a $300 bill. Yikes.

Tax appeals swamp U.S. cities, towns as property prices plunge. This makes things even worse for municipalities, as it means less revenue at a time they need more.
