SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit's EMS on life support. Residents say the Detroit ambulance system has gone from bad to worse, and the city's not acting fast enough to fix the problem. In the meantime, more rigs are breaking down, putting more lives in jeopardy. Now, state and federal authorities have launched an investigation.

On the panel: FOX 2 Reporter Charlie LeDuff; State Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Paramedic Tony Spitz.

Also, he was a regular on Let It Rip. Now, for the first time since his release from federal prison, Sam Riddle returns on the panel. What he's up to now and his take on what's going on in the Kilpatrick Corruption Trial. Plus, watch Riddle and LeDuff go one-on-one over comments about Riddle in LeDuff's new book.

And Charlie Langton takes the show on the road. Are you going to miss Saturday delivery? The U.S. Postal Service says weekend delivery is going away starting in August. When was the last time YOU mailed someone a letter? Tonight, Charlie goes on a letter writing campaign!
