Are you afraid of the dark? 15 to 20 percent of Detroit’s street lights are out because metal thieves are stealing parts from light poles and selling them for scrap. The city's Chief Operating Officer says he is working on it: “It’s embarrassing for me to go into a neighborhood and not see where the lights are on, that’s not something that makes me very happy." While the City Ombudsman is skeptical of any progress being made. “What they’re very good at is making charts?but not fixing things.” [WXYZ Action News]
