The boos rained down from a crowd packed with off-duty Detroit police officers, firefighters and other municipal union members during a town hall meeting featuring Mayor Dave Bing and members of his administration.
Deputy Mayor Kirk Lewis tried to speak several times, but was forced to wait until the boos died down. "Can we have it quiet so we can here the next question?" Lewis asked the raucous crowd.
Police unions are awaiting a ruling by the Michigan Court of Appeals that would allow the extension of a temporary injunction holding the pay cuts at bay. If denied, the unions will take their case to the state Supreme Court, said Joseph Duncan, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association.
