Detroit Belle Isle:
Stealing for the Rich?

Jun 23, 2014

When you drive out to Belle Isle with your children on a beautiful summer day, what does it do to your relaxed mood to get pulled over by State Police/Department of Natural Resources – surrounding you with four vehicles? Is that fun? Rumor has it “warrant checks” are being run – on bicycle riders!

The State of Michigan is using their control of Belle Isle as if the island is only for the wealthy. At this “public” park, there is a Grand Prix/Private Event-type of “security presence” every day.

Just another symptom of the move of the wealthy to steal Detroit’s “jewels” from the working people whose labor built Detroit.
