As the clock ticks down on Detroit's long-coming financial meltdown, some residents wonder if the Motor City is poised on the edge of an explosive summer of unrest.
Management of Detroit's finances and future remained in the control of the mayor and the elected City Council late Wednesday after city leaders and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's review team came to a power-sharing deal on a path forward to fix the broken city.
In the Motor City, the fight over who gets the keys is becoming increasingly intense. Detroit city officials and activists such as the Rev. Jesse Jackson are stepping up their campaign to retain local control as Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, nears a decision on whether to appoint an emergency manager to keep the financially crippled city from going under.
Some Detroit City Council members say they're concerned that an upcoming ABC Network drama will propagate a negative image of the city as dangerous and crime-ridden, and has asked the show's producers to attend an upcoming council meeting to discuss it.
