    Detroit Temporarily Stops Issuing Death Certifactes

    .. because they can't afford the paper to do so.

    “FYI, city of Detroit can’t process death certificates because they have no paper and don’t have money to buy any,” Wallace Williams, president of the Michigan Select Funeral Directors Association, texted his colleagues, the Detroit News reported.

    Yes, five days after it filed for bankruptcy on July 18, the city of Detroit was so financially broken it was unable to issue birth and death certificates.

    Williams referred to the temporary certificate shortage as “dire.”

    He said the certificate shortage could cause major headaches for families of the deceased because without certified copies, they wouldn’t be able to access bank accounts, file insurance claims or access probate court.

    Things are pretty bad when you can't even afford paper. I believe major headache is quite an understatement when you can't even get birth certificates either.

    In the case of Detroit, that's a lot of trees saved every week.

    That's one way to reduce the death rate...stop recognizing those people as dead.

    It states they will make exceptions for religions that require immediate burial. Islam gets head of the line treatment?

    The nation watches Detroit sink into the abyss and yet chooses to follow the path that led the city there.

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Try and get an insurance payment without a death cert. This is serious, for lots of people.

    ^^^^^^This would be a problem. Also, many other "benefit" things require a death certificate to "prove" the person is indeed, deceased. Without the official certificate, benefits can be held up or even denied.

    But to the majority of voters who vote and belong to a certain party not-to-be-named in certain nameless cites, (Chicago, DeTwa, and Washington,DC,) and a host of Southern West Virginia counties, they rely upon the dead to vote. Having a "certificate" will nullify that dead person's vote and well....we can't have that now, can we.

    I've seen it said that Detroit needs to be renamed. It should be called DeToliet.

    Can't they just scribble "Dead" on the toe tag, or are they out of those also?

    Shame we didnt build a wall to keep the inmates in the asylum before many escaped. Detroit is what happens when a city runs out of other peoples money. Gonna happen in many more cities, coming to one near you. Jim
