  • Mich. governor calls for patience with public-safety plan
    Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has advised the city of Flint to give his public-safety plan time to kick in after preliminary FBI data indicated that the city was the most violent in the U.S. last year. Snyder's plan has added state troopers, and a state-funded city lockup is in operation. Snyder also proposed that $15 million go toward expanding the Michigan State Police by 107 troopers.
