Browsing the articles on the Detroit News website today, found a few stories worth sharing.

Apparently the US does still have a functioning criminal justice system.

Grand Rapids — The former president of a mortgage document processing company has been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison on a racketeering charge in a Michigan case.

A Mexican citizen in Roseville has been charged with illegally registering to vote and voting in Michigan, state Attorney General Bill Schuette and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said Thursday.

José Antonio Ramirez-Velázquez, 47, has been charged in Macomb County’s 39th District Court with one count of making a material false statement when registering to vote, which is a 90-day misdemeanor

One of these things involves people making an active choice to commit a crime, the other is mostly the result of selfishness and idiocy. Can you guess which is which and also which one kills more people each year?
Detroit — The city has experienced a rash of gun violence this week, leaving two dead so far and 10 injured, police say.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a report released Friday that its preliminary tally found 34,080 people died in traffic crashes, up 5.3 percent and the first increase in more than seven years.

Of course if people were educated, civilized, and lived in a country with a functional economy you might be able to fix the problem.
Detroit — Lawmakers representing urban and rural areas of Michigan want to make it tougher to sell scrap metal in an effort to slow an epidemic of thefts that threaten public safety and cost businesses and homeowners millions each year.
