DETROIT, Mich ( wxyz) - Frustrations boiled over at a charter mandated community meeting held by Mayor Bing and his top aides Thursday night.
Residents and police officers shouted and chanted about the cuts the officers are facing. People were screaming about a variety of issues from safety and blight to Belle Isle and the consent agreement.
Police officers are facing a 10 percent cut in pay and also a pension cut. The officers' 12 hour shifts start Monday, and they say their fight is not over.
One lady said she felt like Mayor Bing and his staff has sold out the city of Detroit to the governor.
Nothing was accomplished at the meeting as the crowd refused to give the mayor a chance to speak.
The mayor's staff tells us this has been the norm at most of the mandated meetings so far. It was clear that people in the community want to see change and are worried about the cuts to the police department.
