Striking photos show the catastrophic flooding in Detroit

Part of metropolitan Detroit is in a total state of emergency, and barely anyone is paying attention.

Thunderstorms on Monday flooded major sections of the suburb of Warren, just miles from downtown Detroit. It’s pretty bad — in some places the water reached five feet high, while Warren Mayor Jim Fouts told WWJ Newsradio 950 that 1,000 cars had been abandoned to floodwater. Thousands of residents, as well as the city hall and police department, have flooded basements. One person has died and hundreds of others have been rescued by police in canoes.

"This is probably a 200-year rain. I’ve never seen anything like this." | Follow micdotcom

End of days truly

Honestly yeah

Actually three people have died but yeah, i live in the city next to warren. The water is gone but there’s lots of damage.
Shit was pretty fucked up but most freeways have reopened

Anonymous asked: "Shit, what do you think about the fact that the police removed badges and ID tags?"

shady but if they are in gear idk, its pretty obvious who they are and probably to not have shit snag on stuff, but its a stretch and still shady unless there is a legit reason for it we dont know.

Probably so they don’t get specifically targeted. Protecting families.

Because metal badges and name tags present an additional (and preventable) hazard. Like logicd said, it snags, or it could create additional shrapnel, or even something as random as getting stolen (and used for nefarious purposes).

A number of departments down here have started switching to cloth patch badges and nametapes for their SWAT/riot gear, to help remove those possibilities whilst still remaining identifiable.

Why aren’t guns illegal in America?

Because the police kill people on a regular basis

Because guns are overwhelmingly used more for self defense than for homicide

Because guns are necessary to survival in certain parts of the country

Because being able to defend yourself is a human right

And most of all:

Because Americans have spines and won’t give them up like the weak masses of other countries.

I heard that mic drop LOUD…..

You’ve seen the dramatic headlines. Tens of thousands of Yezidis trapped in the Sinjar Mountains in northern Iraq after they were driven from their homes by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The Islamist extremist group is persecuting members of non-Muslim faiths in the massive region of Iraq and Syria it now controls. Hundreds of thousands of religious minorities have fled, and thousands who didn’t have been brutally killed. Read more: http://yhoo.it/1sXrBRj

Democrats thinking that gun rights will lead to everyone shooting each other is akin to Republicans thinking gay rights will lead to everyone gobbling down dicks. Dumb all around. 


entropic-dissonance:

I really don’t understand the people on this site.

On one hand it’s “guns are evil”, “only the police should have guns”, “why would anyone need that”

On the other hand it’s “#policebrutality”, “#ripmikebrown”, “how can we defend ourselves from this?”

If you can’t see the problem here, you ARE the problem.


logicd:

omg militarization of police and police brutality omg omg how can this be!

"only the police should have guns"

*votes for more government*
