Let It Rip: Belle Isle lease deal goes bust

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

The battle over Belle Isle ended with no winners.  When the city council delayed a vote on the lease deal with the state, the governor backed out.  So what's next for Detroit's crown jewel?

Plus, Minister Malik Shabazz once called the consent agreement a white conspiracy to take over Detroit.  Why this black leader is ready to make a surprising choice in the race for mayor.

Joining Huel Perkins, Charlie Langton and Shabazz on "Let It Rip":

Karen Dumas -- a woman who knows Detroit politics inside and out and a former appointee of Mayor Dave Bing who is now leading her own public relations firm.

Charlie LeDuff -- the man just named "Journalist of the Year" by Deadline Detroit.  The website says his reporting has led to the retirement of a police chief and exposed the sexual shenanigans of a local judge.
