Description

Collins investigates the business of Ernest Karr, "Detroit's largest and most brazen slumlord." The story reveals that Karr evades city taxes, ignores city laws and overturns city policies in court, meanwhile renting houses without heat and running water. According to the entry questionnaire: "The story sheds light on an antiquated and convoluted city bureaucracy that neither enforces its own codes and laws, not tracks and punishes scofflaws."
