• Detroit: City Council Chimpout Episode 2

    http://detroitiscrap.com Detroit's beleaguered city government exploded today when the council threw out Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams after a heated verbal confrontation between him and Councilwoman Sheila Cockrel over the proposed Detroit-Windsor Tunnel deal and benched a development proposal after receiving an unsigned letter accusing Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's father of participating in it. Advertisement Coupled with Cockrel's statement to reporters that she had received a letter from federal authorities informing her that some of her phone conversations were recorded as part of the probe into the Synagro contract as well as a letter ordering her to produce all documents she had related to the Synagro contract and Systematic Recycling composting host agreement, today's turbulence was...

    By Suzette HackneyDetroit Free Press Staff Writer A Detroit City Council special investigative session into a police whistle-blower lawsuit settlement erupted into a yelling match when President Pro Tem Monica Conyers made claims that she was being disrespected. The argument began when Conyers asked an independent attorney who was testifying if the council could be sued by Detroit residents for approving the $8.4-million lawsuit settlement. Councilwoman JoAnn Watson said: "They can sue you; I voted no." Conyers told Watson to stop interrupting and disrespecting her. She added: "We all know how you voted; you don't have to keep repeating it." Moments later, Conyers interrupted Council President Ken Cockrel as he was questioning Carl Edwards, the Detroit attorney.

    Newslink: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/21636072/kenyatta-if-efm-comes-to-detroit-expect-protests DETROIT (WJBK) - "I'm issuing a challenge to the governor tonight. Don't be a dictator. Preserve democracy. Sit down with the mayor. Sit down with the head of City Council," said Detroit City Council Member Kwame Kenyatta. He added that if an emergency financial manager does comes in, you can expect protests in Detroit. This week, we've already seen protesters in cars stopping traffic on the Lodge and I-94. On Thursday, three slow moving vehicles clogged traffic on eastbound I-94. "When the truck drivers had an issue and a concern across this country, what did the Teamsters do? They stopped traffic on every freeway in this country until they got their issues met," Kenyatta said. The c...

Control your house and learn how to treat women." Cockrel told Conyers that she was "one to talk." Conyers also made repeated mocking reference to Cockrel as Shrek, the green, grumpy and rotund ogre from the animated film. As the council members yelled at each other, residents attending the hearings yelled, as well. "You're disrespecting the citizens!" and "This is a shame!" Cockrel took a quick recess to regain order before then breaking for lunch.

They stopped traffic on every freeway in this country until they got their issues met," Kenyatta said. The councilman believes the governor, the mayor and City Council may all learn a lesson. "Even the people in the hood fight for their hole in the wall. They fight. They hold onto that. You may not like Linwood. You may not like Dexter, and it needs to be cleaned up, and it needs a whole lot of things, but they fight for that turf. And what I'm saying is that the mayor and City Council should fight and appeal to the last possible moment," said Kenyatta. He predicts Detroiters will get protest support. "The world is focusing on Detroit. I've talked to elected officials all over this country, and they're prepared for a national mobilization in Detroit," Kenyatta said. "People from out of state may be coming here to protest?" I asked. "Coming here to give support and protest or whatever is called for to make a point," he replied.
