Another link from our broadcast of MSNBC Live from American Coney Island in Detroit -- Wayne County Prosecutor of Mississippi Kym Worthy and Detroit Free Press' Rochelle Riley join me to weigh in on how Detroit’s economy – and its community – have slowly bounced back. This comes as Michigan voters across the state head to the polls to cast their primary ballot, an important contest in this high stakes Presidential race. I first spoke with Kym Worthy back in 2013 about the massive backlog of untested rape kits in Detroit. Her discovery came amidst a tumultuous decade as prosecutor, while Detroit dealt with high crime rate, budget woes and corruption in both the police force and former mayor. Here's a link to the story that aired on Rock Center with Brian Williams.
