CNN Video: Detroit Wants to Demolish One Third of the City's Houses 

"This is what happens to a city when OTC Derivatives become more profitable to manufacture than automobiles.

Detroit Mayor Dave Bing this month began his ambitious plan to demolish 3,000 abandoned houses this year and as many as 10,000 during his four-year term using Federal Money.

While the first round of planned demolitions spares the remaining houses on Detroit's infamous "ghost street," there appears to be a clear method to the controlled mayhem.

The Detroit Free Press reports today that the first 1,000 houses targeted for demolition were selected not because of their condition, but because they stand in high-crime areas."

Rev. Horace Sheffield III: “It’s almost like a form of ethnic cleansing… I call it poor cleansing!

This is unbelievable!
