1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
Before workers lay down rails for the new M-1 Rail on Woodward Avenue, they’re going to have to dig up the rails from the previous streetcar system buried under the pavement. The Woodward line of the Detroit DSR was shut down in April of 1956 and replaced with buses. In later years the rails were paved over and have remained hidden until being excavated last week.
