Marisa Hargitay explains how she felt when she first heard about the roughly 11,000 untested rape kits found in a Detroit police warehouse in 2009 and then discovered that it is part of a nationwide problem. “To me, this is the clearest and most shocking demonstration of how we regard these crimes,” she said. Hargitay and her Joyful Heart Foundation have made clearing the national rape kit backlog - estimated at 400,000- it’s priority.  @therealmariskahargitay #detroit #endthebacklog #safd #KimWorthy #rape

J’nai Porter started a petition asking that at the discretion of a judge a 17-year-old can be treated as a juvenile and not an adult in the Michigan court system. She says that it is time to be more progressive in our thinking and evidences show that prosecuting youth offenders in adult courts has been proven ineffective at preventing crime and improving public safety. The right rehabilitation is needed so that young offenders can move on to be productive members of our society. 39 states consider 17-year-olds as juvenile. @jmassage313 #detroitlove #detroit #ricksnyder #jayrucampbell #casstech #youth

The Detroit skyline seen through the ruins of the former Packard Plant. Fernando Palazuelo, a 58-year-old millionaire developer from Peru bought the Packard for $405,000 in a Wayne County tax foreclosure auction in the fall. I am looking forward to what he can do with it. #detroit #packardplant #graffiti #hand #motown #rencen
