Attorney General Mike Cox says that around 15-hundred people have been killed in Detroit over the past four years, yet Governor Granholm has done little to help the city drive down its homicide rate.

He says she has deserted the city of Detroit.

But a spokeswoman for the Democratic governor says the Republican attorney general recently turned his back on Detroit by pulling out of an anti-crime program in the city known as the Joshua Project.

The project monitored criminals and prevented them from committing more crimes by conducting unscheduled home visits and mandatory call-in meetings.

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's spokesman says he doesn't feel abandoned by the governor and appreciates the money the state has put into the city. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
