    Positively portraying a Catholic outreach organization like the Pope Francis Center? Good on you Wall Street Journal. My prayers go out to the poor and vulnerable in Detroit.

    This sounds more like wishful talking…don't fall for it People. These are hoping that their words will create their intended purpose. They're probably engaging in culling the homeless population.

    Black people suck at following directions. They don't do something unless you make them . Been this way for hundreds of years. Stop acting like it's their poorness.

    This is a stupid blatant lie. Anyone can get infected. Bad choices, and bad leadership is what causes the infections. Then its about what your predisposed to. NY, Detroit, New York all failed miserably.

    Could the government's biowarfare lab at Plum Island be the source of the virus?

    DUDE EXACTLY. The doctor spoke simply the truth! Stay at home order? where are these people gonna stay? wash your hands for 20 seconds? Where do you see a sink? I mean I live in a suburban America. I haven't seen a FREAKING PERSON IN WEEKS near my house unless I go to the grocery store .. which I see like 20 people at most ALL WEARING MASK… lol. it's like I'm living on a farm lolol. In these Ubran communities it's impossible.. it's alllll about the social environment.

    This is because of the high levels of open defiance in alot of areas including some low income areas where people had to be convinced and pusuaded of the importance of following the guidelines of refraining from Gatherings. The homeless are a completely different situation as they do not have housing ! Hopefully people have now realized the importance of social distancing

    Detroit…How is that selling out to the progressive socialist policies of the last few decades working out?

    People need to understand that death is inevitable. It is a door to eternity so make sure you die in Christ. Poor people please give your heart to Jesus. The world doesn’t give s*** about you but if you die in Christ you’re better than the living rich a*** .. worst is ahead so go out now in style that is in Christ. LORD I am ready anytime cause living is pain even with ton of money. I love you so much Jesus .. you can take me anytime. I repent all the time of all sins, seek your face and in pursuit of absolute righteousness. Oh come LORD JESUS!

    This is why having a city full of people without drivers licenses that have special rules is a problem & people making the 'Special' rules are to blame.
    1) All of Michigan : Pay 200$ for a medical marijuana card to use dispensary Detroit : Detroit addresses on ID doesnt need a medical card for dispensary
    Making special rules for Detroit just makes the problem worse and DOESNT HELP. This is a small example of the special rules made for people in Detroit. Its viewed by Detroit as an advantage, But its done to keep people willing to put up with MAJOR problems there. Trading off Special Detroit Rules for basic human rights. #MutatingCommunism

    Fun Fact : Violent crimes in the U.S.A decreased by more than 50% when we changed from leaded to unleaded gasoline in our society.

    Let that sink in…

    Why not visit and review every large city and how each city is responding to this crisis.

    the coronavirus doesn't check your bank account, but it is more lethal if you're obese, if you smoke, if you are a drug user, if you have asthma, if you have heart conditions. All these are higher in poorer and lower education levels.

    What GM has done to this city over the years is just sad. It seems even more apparent in times of crisis. That company over in Dearborn doesn't close factories and shift jobs elsewhere.
