DETROIT WATER IS NOT FREE...UNITED NATIONS, CANADA, THE WORLD

DETROIT RESIDENTS PAY: CABLE BILLS (66%), CELL PHONE BILLS (72%)...OOPS NOT WATER BILLS (50%).....THERE IS NO NO NO FREE WATER, GAS, ELECTRICITY !!

Federal Bankruptcy Judge Steve Rhodes...take note - concentrate on Detroit Retirees who may not be able to pay THEIR bills , because Big Banks, and Bondholders were greedy and now spiteful.

Detroit Police / Fire Fighters and General City Retirees - voted to help save the City and now a few protesters are stirring up a storm over unpaid water bills, in the winter, it was no heat... but cable bills and cell phones bills are paid, while Detroit retirees LOST ALL OF THEIR HEALTH CARE BENEFITS...who has the better grievance ??? Detroit Retiress - Judge Rhodes !!!

Their is a small cadre of people, some lead by Ron Scott (misguided - will protest anything especially when DPD is mentioned) that will protest anything and everything in Detroit. It must STOP...The right to protest also has responsibilites, use the right to protest, wisely - against Big Banks and Bondholders who are robbing Detroit Police . Fire Fighters and General City Retirees of their HEALTH CARE BENEFITS, a part of the pension checks - Pensions guaranteed by the MICHIGAN CONSTITUTION...this is a justifiable PROTEST...

Ps. Mark Ruffalo - Celebrity mouth...learn about Detroit before you bad mouth it - you sounded loud and IGNORANT..
Canadians - We don't need your water - ours is a better quality...tell Detroit residents to pay, their water bills before their cable or cell phone bills...

DETROIT RESIDENTS PAY CABLE, CELL PHONE BILLS - OOPS NOT WATER BILLS

DETROIT RESIDENTS PAY: CABLE BILLS, CELL PHONE BILLS...OOPS NOT WATER BILLS...THERE IS NO NO NO FREE WATER, GAS, ELECTRICITY!! DETROIT RESIDENTS PAY THEIR CELL PHONE BILLS (72%) AND CABLE BILLS (66%) BUT 50% PAY THEIR WATER BILLS.

Federal Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes...take note - concentrate on Detroit Retirees who may not be able to pay THEIR bills, because Big Banks, and Bondholders were greedy and now spiteful.

MALAYSIA FLIGHT MH 17...UNITED NATIONS, THE WORLD, NETHERLANDS

Russia is morally and ethically responsible for the death of 298 innocent passengers on Flight MH 17...There should be no hesitation on placing blame.

The United Nations Security Council should ignore any veto by Russia and order joint UN military units and the Ukrainian Army to secure the crash site and secure the site for proper inspection and removal of the dead and other properties.

If Russia objects or interferes with the UN troops, the European Union should send in a joint military units to act under UN sponsorship and fight the Russian terrorist who now control lthe plane's site.

This is not President Obama's fault or the US responsibility...there was only one (1) American listed as a passenger. The Netherlands lost the most citizens and it was Malaysian airplane. They must take the lead, with European leaders assisted by the US, but we are not the World - this is a World problem and the UN must stand up, now and in the future as conflicts becomes more the responsibility of the World.

Those who blame the President for a faulty or timid military policy - Republicans lead by Cong John Boehnner and grumpy US Senator John McCain would have had us fight in Iran and Syria and resend US troops into Iraq, in which, to many US soldiers (4,500) died and we spent over one (1) trillion dollars (it now seems misspent) . The Republicans - are WAR HAWKS who see US Soldiers as a symbol of our Power, and not a precious resources to be used only in the most serious of circumstances.

The US should not think or make every World problem a US problem or claim the US National Security Interests are at stake. We should have learned that lesson in Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Syria - our military power does not always translate into military victories. The more we deploy US soldiers, the more we can expect death and none victories. American soldiers should not be 'cannon fodder' to those in the Congress who want to plant our flag at and in every World Crisis.

Diplomacy must be our first ACT...and only military intervention is so clearly evident and necessary that the American Public, whole heartedly endorses the deployment. NO lies or faulty military intelligence should justify US military intervention. The US can offer assistance - now its a DRONE world military, that is needed, not US troops.

DETROIT BANKRUPTCY - JUDGE RHODES - PUBLIC HEARINGS, JULY 14, 2014

DETROIT BANKRUPTCY PUBLIC HEARING - JULY 15, 2014, 2 pm

I was one on the @ 80 members of the public selected to appear before Federal Judge Steven W. Rhodes, at the US Court House, in Detroit, to talk about the Detroit Bankruptcy Case.

I was allowed five minutes and I had a prepared statement, typed in all CAPS, so that I could read it, there was no telepromter. Below is my prepared statement, but I went off message, because we were in Federal Judge Julian Cook's courtroom, who is in charge of the Department of Justice DPD Consent Decree Case, which began in 2003.

I was upset to be in the court room that I had been in with DPD PC Warren Evans, just after he was appointed Chief. I was there then to ask Judge Cook, to do his job and to accelerate the compliance of DPD with the Decrees. It has cost Detroit $$$ millions of dollars $$$ since 2003 and still as of July 15, 2014, there is still not full compliance with the Decrees.

Mark Diaz, President of the DPOA, told me that Detroit is paying $40,000 a month while the Decree Case drags on on and on.

I started off telling Judge Rhodes that I had been in this courtroom with PC Evans, to ask Judge Cook to do his job, and today I told Judge Rhodes that it has cost Detroit millions of dollars and still there is no compliance and that I belived that Judge Cook was not doing his job, he was failing to do his job and that Judge Rhodes and EFM Orr should order Judge Cook to end the Case, because the money that it was costing Detroit, could be better used by Detroit, the DPD or used for City retirees.

I told Judge Rhodes that the $40,000 a month could be paying for one DPD officer a month. One officer a month that is not protecting Detroit residents.

I concluded this none prepared statement again requesting that Judge Rhodes look into Judge Cooks conduct, in regards to, the DOJ Consent Decrees.

Because I had used part of my time talking about the Decrees and could not fully complete reading my complete statement, I asked Judge Rhodes to accept my statement and to have it 'read into the court record' ...he agreed and has my statement and a letter to him, dated May 15, 2014 which details the loss of my DPD health coverage and the costs $15,170.16, (37%) of my pension check that I have to pay in 2014, and that the NEWS MEDIA was ingnoring in articles about the loss of medical coverage by DPD / DFD retirees.The news media keeps reporting (?) that DPD / DFD retirees, lost nothing from their pension checks - which is completely WRONG.

My prepared statement: ALLL CAPS...so that I could read it.

JUDGE RHODES, I AM DAVID LAWRENCE MALHALAB,

A DUTY DISABLED RETIRED DETROIT POLICE

SERGEANT, SINCE MAY 2005.

I HAVE COME TO EXPRESS MY DISPLEASURE OF

THE DETROIT BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS.

WE HEAR ABOUT RESTRUCTURING OF DETROIT

GOVERNMENT SO THAT WHEN IT EMERGES FROM

BANKRUPTCY IT WILL BE ABLE TO BETTER SERVE

DETROIT RESIDENTS….BUT IN 2 AREAS I SEE A

GLARING PROBLEM THAT HAS NOT BEEN

ADDRESSED. AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE

FIRST CHANGES…

DETROIT HAS TOO MANY COUNCIL MEMBERS…FOR

650,000 RESIDENTS…

EFM ORR AND YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY REDUCE

COUNCIL MEMBERS BY 2 TO 4 MEMBERS…THE

COUNCIL IS BLOATED AND NOT EFFICIENT.

AND THE COUNCIL JUST GOT A 5% RAISE AND NOT

ONE MEMBER HAS REJECTED THE RAISE – WHILE

CITY WORKERS HAVE LOST MORE.. AND SOME

RETIREES LOST 4.5% OF THEIR PENSION CHECKS

AND WE ALL LOST OR MEDICAL BENEFITS…THIS IS

NOT FAIR …RIGHT …OR JUST. WHERES IS THE

SHARED SACRIFICE…A GOOD FAITH EFFORT TO

UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS FOR RETIREES.

PUBLIC SAFETY IS SAID BY SOME TO BE THE MOST

IMPORTANT ISSUES …WE HAVE A NEW POLICE

CHIEF WHO IS CLEANING UP THE MESS FROM PAST

BAD AND CORRUPT POLICE CHIEFS THAT HAS

HELPED LEAVE DETROIT UNSAFE.

THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL HAVE TO HIRE NEW

POLICE OFFICERS BECAUSE IT IS SEVERELY

UNDERSTAFFED – INDEED THE LACK OF POLICE

OFFICERS IS ONE REASON THAT DETROIT IS STILL

UNSAFE –

NO MATTER WHAT CHIEF CRAIG DOES OR SAYS…

EFM ORR AND YOU MUST ORDER THE CITY TO

RAISE THE HIRING STANDARDS FOR NEW POLICE

OFFICERS… A GED REQUIREMENT IS TO LOW A

STANDARD FOR A 21ST CENTURY POLICE

DEPARTMENT.

DETROIT NEEDS A 2 OR 4 YR COLLEGE

REQUIREMENT AND OR MILITARY EXPERIENCE

REQUIREMENT AND A QUALITY PSYCHOLOGICAL

EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR NEW OFFICERS, AND

FOR ALL OFFICERS.

AND EFM ORR AND YOU MUST IMPOSE A STARTING

SALARY FOR NEW OFFICERS THAT WILL ATTRACT

APPLICANTS TO DETROIT AND RETAIN OFFICERS

THAT ARE SACRIFICING EVERY DAY TO PROTECT

DETROIT RESIDENTS…

$14 ($17 added in) A PROPSED PAY RATE FOR NEW OFFICERS AND

WITH A 8% DEDUCTION FOR PENSION WILL NOT

ATTRACT AND RETAIN THE BEST AND THE

BRIGHTEST POLICE OFFICERS.

INDEED SOME OFFICERS MAY HAVE TO GO ON

WELFARE TO KEEP THEIR JOBS.

FUNDING MUST BE FOUND FROM FEDERAL AND

STATE GOVERNMENTS (AND HOMELAND SECURITY, BECAUSE WE ARE

THE BIGGEST BORDER CITY IN US (added) TO PAY FOR THIS MOST

BASIC PUBLIC SERVICE

YOU SHOULD ORDER JUDGE JULIAN COOK TO END

THE DOJ DETROIT DECREE CASE, THAT HAS

DRAGGED ON FOR 11 YEARS, AND HAS COST

DETROIT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND SHOULD HAVE

ENDED LONG AGO.

IF ANY POLICE DEPARTMENT HAD BEEN

THOROUGHLY BAD AND CORRUPT – IT SHOULD NOT

HAVE TAKEN THIS LONG TO CORRECT THE

PROBLEMS OF THAT DEPARTMENT OR DETROIT’S

I AM UPSET BECAUSE THE NEWS MEDIA CONTINUES

TO MAKE FALSE STATEMENTS – THAT WE DID NOT

LOSE ANYTHING FROM OUR PENSIONS…PENSION

CHECKS…WHEN IN FACT EVERY RETIREE MUST

NOW PAY FOR THEIR HEALTH CARE BENEFITS WITH

MONEY FROM OUR / THEIR PENSION CHECKS.

I HAD AS A RETIRED SERGEANT A BC-BS MASTER

MEDICAL BENEFIT WITH DENTAL AND VISION….NOW

I DON’T HAVE EITHER…10 DAYS AFTER MY DUTY

DISABILITY NOTICE CAME THRU – AT THE REQUEST

OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT – PC ELLA BULLY

CUMMINGS I HAD A TRIPLE HEART BYPASS WITH A

BRIDGE…I NEEDED MY HARD EARNED MEDICAL

BENEFITS THEN, AND NOW MORE THAN EVER…AS I

APPROACH 10 YEARS WITH A HEART BYPASS.

I NOW PAY ALMOST $900 A MONTH FOR A BC BS

POLICY THAT HAS NO DENTAL AND NO VISION - I

HAVE CATARACTS AND GLAUCOMA – AND TWO

TORN ROTAR CUFFS FROM MY DUTY RELATED

INJURY…I WILL PAY ABOUT $15,170. – ABOUT 37%

FROM MY PENSION CHECK…OUT OF POCKET

COSTS TO ME…THE STIPENDS ARE TOO LITTLE AND

ARE NOW CAUSING CONFUSION, DUE TO DUTY

DISABILITY QUESTIONS AND POSSIBLY GETTING A

SUPPLEMENT TO THE STIPEND..AND NOW WE HEAR

OF A VEBA HEALTH SYSTEM ???

WE ARE CONFUSED AND FELT FORCED TO VOTE

YES ON RESTRUCTURING PLAN – THAT IS

CONFUSING TO LAWYER AND TO US AND WE DON’T

KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HOW VEBA WILL WORK OR

IF IT WILL HAPPEN THIS IS WRONG…ALL RETIREES

HAVE BEEN WRONGED BY THE LOSS OF THEIR

HEALTH CARE BENEFITS.. AND THIS MUST BE MADE

RIGHT.

RETIREES MUST KNOW THAT THEIR SACRIFICES ON

THE JOB AND NOW IN RETIREMENT WERE NOT

WRONG AND IN VAIN.

I HAVE SAID PUBLICALLY THAT THE DETROIT

BANKRUPTCY IS WRONG AND BE BOTCHED FROM

THE BEGINNING I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE

ACTIONS PRIOR TO FILING THE BANKRUPTCY WERE

LEGAL, TRANSPARENT AND IN THE BEST INTEREST

OF DETROIT RESIDENTS AND RETIREES.

IF THE DETROIT BOND DEAL IS FOUND ILLEGAL OR

A STRONG BELIEF THAT IT IS…THERE MUST BE AN

FBI AND SEC INVESTIGATION, AND PEOPLE SHOULD

GO TO JAIL.

DETROIT POLICE AND FIRE RETIREES WERE MADE

OUT TO BE A REASON THAT DETROIT WAS IN SUCH

A DIRE FINANCIAL CONDITION.

THE PUBLIC WAS TOLD THAT THE DETROIT POLICE

FIRE PENSION WAS UNDER FUNDED AND RUN BY

CROOKS AND SCAM ARTISTS…

WE WERE SET UP TO BE THE FALL GUY IN EVENT

THAT A RESOLUTION OF THE BANKRUPTCY WAS

NOT PROPERLY ACCOMPLISHED.

EFM ORR WENT AROUND SAYING HE WAS GOING

CONDUCT AN INVESTIGATION, WHILE KNOWING

THAT THE FBI HAD AN ONGOING INVESTIGATION

AND THAT NUMEROUS PEOPLE HAD BEEN

INDICTED.

BUT IN FACT OUR PENSION WAS FULLY FUNDED @

$3 BILLION DOLLARS AND WAS A VIABLE AND WELL

STRUCTURED PENSION CAPABLE OF PAYING ITS

RETIREES. ESPECIALLY NOW WITH THE

NEW PENSION REQUIREMENT FOR DPD / FFS

ALL OF THIS FALSE INFORMATION WAS A SET UP TO

STEAL OUR HEALTH CARE BENEFITS AND TAKE

CONTROL OF OUR PENSION SYSTEM ONLY AT THE

LAST MINUTES DID EMF ORR ADMIT THAT THE OUR

PENSION WAS NOT UNDERFUNDED.

YOU RULED THAT OUR MICHIGAN

CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED

PENSIONS WERE A CONTRACT THAT COULD BE

BROKEN – WE WILL NOW NEVER KNOW.

SO POLICE AND FIRE FIGHTERS LOST THEIR, HARD

EARNED HEALTH CARE ENEFITS….BENEFITS THAT

WE WORKED HARD FOR AND SACRIFICED FOR

GONE…AT A TIME IN OUR LIVES THAT WE NEEDED

THEM MOST – IN RETIREMENT.

FIREWORKS KILLS DETROIT MAN - JULY 4, 2014, DANGEROUS FIREWORKS LEGAL

FIREWORKS KILL MAN IN DETROIT..2014...STOP THE INSANITY...

Watch me on TV 2..4..7...Comment on professional grade fireworks being used by people who don't realize how powerful they are...JULY 5..

Maher Aburouman 44/A/M was eating and drinking with his friends on Plainview / S of Dayton, and they were shooting off a variety of fireworks. Maher held a ground based motar tube with a shell inside, lite it and it blew back into him because the shell couldn't go straight up. Ron Mohlman a friend said it happened so fast that everyone was stunnned. Maher fell back against a fence and Mohlman put a pillow under his head, and said that in less than a minute, Maher died.

I did for a long long time, did the fireworks enforcement in Detroit. Detroit party store owners, gas stations, dollars stores and gypsy salesmen on street corners sold, illegal fireworks, similar to what is legal now. I saw children as young as five years old, trying to buy fireworks. Detroit store owners would sell anything, liquor to minors, crack pipes, counterfeit designer items, pirated CDs / DVDs etc, all to make a profit, because they knew there was a lack of enforcement in Detroitt.

I was threatened by these merchants and laughed at by some police officers, but I saw the need for enforcement and tried to fill the void - it was difficult, but I got convictions in Court, my vidication (up to $500 ea fines) which incesed some merchants.

I emailed the Governor, the Mi Attorney General and legislators and to ask them - NOT - to legalize fireworks, because of the inherent dangers to the public. Legislators used the excuse of capturing millions of fireworks related tax dollars (up to $10m a year) and creating more jobs - that would go to Ohio or Indiana. So they picked the easy fruit from the forbidden tree without a serious consideration for the consequences - death, injuries and maiming.
I emailed the media - Ron Dzwonowski an editor with the Free Press, supported making them legal, for the tax dollars...I was never called or asked for a comment on the legislative action / mistake.

Maher has an exwife and four daughters, who now have no father, becaues he mishandled powerful legal fireworks.

11, 400 people were injured by fireworks last year...this year you can include a fatality. I watched in Dearborn Heights last night, as a father allowed his son (5 yrs old?) and his daughter (10 yrs old?) lite a similar tube filled with a powerful fireworks shell, like the one that killed Maher, in the 8200 block of Riverview. He came up to me and challenged me on Why was I photographing his children !!!

Even though he was in a public street igniting powerful - Legal - fireworks, with his children at his side. His son bent over a tube as he lit one !!!

You can see the videos I shot - on my facebook page (David Malhalab), watch and leave a comment

The Michigan Legislature made a serious mistake and Governor Synder ratified it by signing the fireworks legislation into law. NOW the Legislature should create a - Fireworks Victims Compensation Fund - by adding a $500 surcharge to every fireworks license issued in Michigan.

Local city councils and county commissioners should enact stronger penalties for selling fireworks to children, and for parents allowing their children to ignite fireworks, or putting them in harms way by being less that 50 feet away.

And put stronger restrictions on when and where they can be ignited - no public street or property, park or parking lot, etc....this may save lives.

Mayor Fouts of Warren should be an example to all cities...and to the Legislature - he recognizes the danger and consequences of allowing the unfrettered use of legal fireworks.

Some of the fireworks that are being sold in Michigan are professional grade and powerful fireworks - we have all seen them explode high in the sky for the past serveral years. These fireworks should be handled by professionals who wear firemen coats, helmets, boots and gloves - but the general public and buy them and explode them in shorts and flip flops - and children ignite them with their parent encouraging them to do so.

Some say if we go make them illegal again, then people will still go to Ohio and Indiana, buy them and bring them back to Michigan - well let them the less fireworks in the hands of the general public, the less chance of multi digit deaths and injuries, and we will have taken back our authority to ticket and arrest serious violators.

We have all seen the fireworks bursting in air and heard the noise that is likened to a - war zone - an Iraq War vet said he has flashbacks and nightmares, when fireworks are exploded over and over again in his neighborhood and all across his city ...and from one end of Michigan to the other...It is wrong.

PS. So vote out every state legislator (August 5th Primary) that voted for legalizing fireworks...taxing your pensions...making Michigan a 'right to work state...voted for a 'anti-texting law (uneforceable) when a ban on hand held cell phones / distracted driving law was needed...oppose a woman's right to an abortion (God will be the judge not legislators) and went home to campaign for your vote - with no plan for fixing the states roads and bridges...

Michigan Primary Election - August 5th...Michigan House District 11
VOTE: DAVID LAWRENCE MALHALAB (r) INDEPENDENT...
Absentee voters: vote for me...now

The best Ukrainian - Armenian candidate for YOU...

I am a retired Detroit Police Sergeant and I will not stand for anymore 'business as usual' in the Michigan Legislature. I will stand up for Senior Citizens and Women and make sure that they are protected and get the best services, they need.

We must spend to educate our children starting in pre-school and make sure that at every grade they are meeting their potential. The better the education - early on - the less educational problems we will face later. I favor a 365 day school year and a requirement for K-8, second language education.

I support more education requirement for Concealed Weapon Licenses, more restrictions on 'Open Carry' of firearms, and a ban on the sale of military style assault weapons and ammunition. We need more reasonable gun control laws.

I support a womans right to an abortion; and assisted suicide (death with dignity).

I will support repeal of the No Texting Law (phony) and replace it with a Distracted Driver Law (no hand held cell phones and anything else that impairs a driver) the current law is unenforceable.

Road repair requires an increase in taxes (specifically designated) with no diversion - it requires an increase in fees and making trucking companies pay their fair share. Asphalt and Concrete construction companies MUST be held accountable for the roads they build and repair.

DETROIT'S M - 1 LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM, STOP IT - NOW

M -1 LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM - DETROIT....STOP IT, NOW

I have contacted the US Department of Transportation, asking them to STOP and no longer support the Detroit M-1 Light Railway System, that is a 3.3 mile / 13 stop - bondoogle, already over budget and under funded.

It is support by rich businessmen, Mike Ilitch, Dan Gilber, Roger Penske and others that promoted it as a privately funded project, that is now gotten $25 million dollars in Federal Aid and requesting another $12.2 million dollars.

It is a fanciful Disney Land ride, in a City that is in bankruptcy, with retirees robbed of their pensions, tax dollars that should be helping Detroit are labeled Detroit Downtown Development Authority 'captured dollars' (not tax dollars).

Detroit does not have a dependable bus system. Detroit residents do not even have bus shelters, to protect them from wind, rain or snow. Detroit and its suburbs need a coordinated bus system that will provide economic aid to the region and not just to some rich - 1% ers - who plan a mega million development project with a MINI ICE ARENA, as its center piece.

My email says:

PLEASE ...STOP...THE DETROIT M1 RAILWAY....
THEY WANT $12.2 MILLION MORE DOLLARS FOR YOUR DEPARTMENT....
BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDERFUNDED...

DETROIT RESIDENTS DO NOT NEED ANOTHER FAILED PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION - DISNEY LAND RIDE - WE HAVE THE 'PEOPLE MOVER'...

DETROIT DOES NOT HAVE A DEPENDABLE BUS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, THAT PREVENTS RESIDENTS FROM GETTING TO AND FROM WORK OR SCHOOL. THEY DO NOT HAVE BUS SHELTERS, TO SHIELD THEM FROM WIND, RAIN, SNOW...

THE M1 IS TOO SMALL, WITH TOO MANY - STOPS, TO BE EFFECTIVE AND WORTH THE MONEY, WHICH WILL BE NEEDED AND PAID FOR BY THE DETROIT RESIDENTS, IN THE FUTURE...A CITY ALREADY IN BANKRUPTCY, WITH TRANSPORTATION DEFICITS AND SERIOUS PROBLEMS.

PLEASE - DO ALL YOU CAN TO STOP THE M1 - AND PROMOTE A VIABLE PUBLIC BUS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM FOR DETROIT AND ITS SUBURBS.

It's been assigned a number for reference #140624 - 000088...if you wish to support and end to the M-1 Light Rail System, go to the US Department of Transportation website - contact us...and submit your email of support.
