“I have not seen this many unclaimed bodies in 13 years on the job,” said Albert Samuels, chief investigator at the mortuary.
This is all you need to know about crony capitalism and what it has done to a State a City and a Public School system, and don’t forget the people who are completely reliant on the government for their survival, and if left unchecked this will be how the rest of the country will look.
Crony capitalism has run this state for the past 50 years or more, and this is the result, so Detroit you have no one to blame but yourselves for voting for liberal democrats who care nothing about you but only care that they get to stay in power or the next 50 years.
Unburied bodies tell the tale of Detroit — a city in despair
Tim Reid in Detroit November 21, 2009
The abandoned corpses, in white body bags with number tags tied to each toe, lie one above the other on steel racks inside a giant freezer in Detroit’s central mortuary, like discarded shoes in the back of a wardrobe.
Some have lain here for years, but in recent months the number of unclaimed bodies has reached a record high. For in this city that once symbolised the American Dream many cannot even afford to bury their dead.
“I have not seen this many unclaimed bodies in 13 years on the job,” said Albert Samuels, chief investigator at the mortuary. “It started happening when the economy went south last year. I have never seen this many people struggling to give people their last resting place.”
Unburied bodies piling up in the city mortuary — it reached 70 earlier this year — is the latest and perhaps most appalling indignity to be heaped on the people of Detroit. The motor city that once boasted the highest median income and home ownership rate in the US is today in the midst of a long and agonising death spiral.
