    are worried about bodies? Huh? They either didn't see the thuggishness, didn't care, or actually admired it. You can't just blame the "system" at the top level. Voters share much of the blame as well.

      No offense meant to you, but I'll believe that when we're all hand-counting ballots in plain sight again.

        I worked on 3 mayoral campaigns in Detroit, against Coleman Young trust me I know of the corruption.  The 3rd campaign was SMART they had people at the polls watching every move, BUT some of the polling places wouldn't let us in (I happened to be one that couldn't get in and had to call the office).  They also were lucky enough to have the Detroit police dept back them so they watched as boxes were locked, loaded into cars, and escorted them to where they were counted.  Of course some of this could have been for naught because Coleman wasn't running this time.  The police dept. as well as the fire dept. were threatened with lose of pay, etc, if Coleman wasn't re elected.  Much worse threats were made as well.  For those of you who don't believe, please reconsider.  Work on a campaign in the area of dispute and you will learn a lot from it.  BTW if you hadn't gathered the 3rd guy actually did win.

          and people just aren't able to properly discuss it and do something about it, due to various intimidation tactics.

          It's sad that many of them work. Here, not so much...

            Yeah, and some of the "intimidation tatics" can't be discussed either.  I just wish more people were aware of it.  It amazes me that people don't believe the accusations.
