A question that a man asked at last nights council meeting when he took his turn at the microphone. He told a story of calling the police department for help to get evacuated out of his home during the flood. Him, his wife (whose 6 months pregnant) and their toddler. Water was coming into the house fast and they had no way out. When they called the police the dispatcher told him to,
“Call Superman. “
That’s why he was asking if anyone on the council, the chief of the police, department heads anyone if they knew Superman’s number. What a horrible way to be treated while watching water rushing into your home.
Just a tiny suggestion, do a little more hearing have just a little heart and feel just a bit when someone like this man is telling his story. A certain someone was in the back asking the chief of police,
“didn’t you lose two cars?”
“no we lost 3 the fire department lost 2.”
The chair had to say something to shut them up, but for the love of god couldn’t you just sit in silence. Couldn’t you just say I’m so sorry to hear that. Can anyone in this city ever just take responsibility for something as wrong as that? Wouldn’t it have been better for someone in this City to say, Sir we are sorry that happened to you. We will look into it pull the tape and if there was wrong doing we will make sure that there is a punishment for it. We will contact you and let you know what we’ve done. Was the earth going to stop rotating if a kind gesture was made? It’s down right sad to be honest there are no words for such heartlessness. Well let’s all call
Superman (313) 791-3490 ask for Superman aka the Mayor .
I’m kidding, but if there is a number for this man to call it would be that number the City doesn’t have a Superman we have elected officials that are supposed to look out for the City and the residents that live in it. I don’t expect them to be Superman and woman.
I do expect them to have some decency, some just a tiny little bit of respect. Oh sorry I didn’t mean to use a bad word as I know the word respect is a very bad word to use in this City especially if you are expecting any.
