“Thank you for calling 911, please leave your name, number, and a brief message at the tone”
Detroit, which has one of the highest crime rates of large American cities, will close the doors of its police stations to the public from 4pm each day, reopening 16 hours later at 8am.
From Monday, many residents wanting to report crimes will not be able to speak face-to-face with an officer as the cash-strapped city struggles to slash costs.
Instead, members of the public will have to phone or go online to report an incident, in what has been dubbed ‘virtual precincts’.

That is so wild! I am going to read this, more in depth, tomorrow when I am more wide awake, too. There is also a link to read her story in full that I may check out. This reminds me of a very good movie I watched, starring Liam Neeson, called "Unknown." I really, really liked that movie!

This is not the first story of this type that I have heard of. I guess it could be possible but I am very skeptical of most things I read online. It's hard to know what to believe anymore. There are stories about Project Paperclip where seamen were transported to another time. They even made a movie about it, so who knows what is really true or not.

The story is really scary! The other stories within the article are just as strange, especially about the man who had a passport to a country that did not exist! This one is worth reading, but I certainly do not have any answers. I don't know

Some people are so talented. Some of these are so interesting but some of them are creepy. I would love to go see something like this sometime.

That guy with the tumour - have you seen the video of him walking (before they cut it off)? Poor guy - he was almost a human Jabba the Hutt.

The lead doctor, an American, waived his fee and other costs were funded through donations, the hospital said.

Wow, that guy is lucky to be alive. I can imagine how horrible it was to be tied down like that with the tumor. How kewl is it that the doctor waived his fee. I like hearing good news that restores my faith in people. Smile Good story Hope.

No, CL-Ed, that was the first I ever saw of that poor man. How could the poor guy even WALK? I always wonder how they allow tumors to get THAT HUGE before doing something about them? Do they just grow that fast or what? Like people who say they had a tumor the "size of a watermelon" or whatever inside them? How does it even get allowed to get that far? Things that make you go hmmmmm.......

I have never seen the video of him walking either. That seems impossible because of the weight. I wouldn't trade my troubles for his. I'm glad he is doing better now.

Video here:

I think it got that big because he could not afford the operation.

Bungee jumper survives 365-foot river plunge after cord snaps

Thanks, CL-Ed!

Wow. I had to watch, and I am glad I did, because my heart just goes out to that poor man. And he has been living like this since four years of age? I hope he can learn to walk again, someday, because I know they said he previously had some of his leg amputated. How incredible that he was smiling. We have so much to be thankful for, and we take so much for granted!

That is an incredible story. What a miracle that she survived!

I have no desire to ever bungie jump. Sky dive....MAYBE. What I would REALLY love to do are those zip lines. THAT I would try.

I found this bittersweet story on the same page as the bungie jumping story, and I had to watch the video. The article tells the complete story, though.

I wanted to snuggle that dog up. Poor thing. I hated seeing it walk on that hurt paw. I'm glad the dog is back with the owners. What a great guy to rescue the pup.

I watched the video of the guy walking with the tumor. Wow! It's hard to imagine what he went through.

So sad that the dog's mom died in the accident, though. I always feel sorry for animals that lose "their people," because just as with little children, you can't really explain things to them so that they really understand. I am glad the dog is back to some who are familiar with him and family. That guy is a hero in my book! Smile

Yes, that is what happened in the story. The video doesn't explain it. That is why the dog was injured, too, because it had run from the car accident in which his owner was killed. SO sad! The man said he though the dog was shivering more from fear than from the cold. Sad

You are talking about the dog's human mom right? I thought you meant the dog's birth mother (for lack of a different term). I re-read the story. I starting reading below the video and missed the first part of the story.

That is one smart goat! The police got their exercise. Ha Ha This reminds me of a cow that was going to the slaughter house. She happened to be pregnant. She hopped that gate and took off. Someone adopted her later and her baby was fine. Smile
