The city has been in dire financial straits for years, same is true for the state (which also has a high tax rate). You'd think someone would want to make whatever money could be made from vacant buildings, give the taxpayers a little bit of a break. Also, it's selfish and irresponsible to just abandon educational materials that can be salvaged and re-used. There are places even poorer than Detroit, in the U.S. and around the world. Those books and supplies are needed. To a frugal person, the whole situation is offensive.
