This is so typical of

This is so typical of ultra-statist MSNBC. They say that a city ruled by corrupt Democrats for decades is a "libertarian" city simply because the usual statist vermin have bankrupted the city to the point that basic services like street lights and police protection can no longer be provided. I guess that the Soviet Union in the final stages of its collapse was libertarian too.

Of course it is not at all surprising that MSNBC wants "Washington" (that is, all of us taxpayers) to bail out Detroit. The claim that the residents of Detroit are not responsible for the mess is nonsense. They voted for the corrupt politicians every time. And the high crime that drove out businesses and productive citizens was created by the residents.
