Fire Chief on the hotseat

Why would Flint Fire Chief Richard Dicks be running a private security firm — City Security Guard Company Ltd. — out of his home? Isn't running the fire department a pretty big job all by itself? And why would the fire chief's private security firm be doing business with Career Alliance Inc., a troubled non-profit job-training agency? And why is there an ongoing criminal investigation of Career Alliance? Perhaps the FBI was looking for answers when they visited Dicks' home on February 13.

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
