SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr unveiled a plan on Thursday that would dramatically change the pensions for city retirees.

He is starting with an investigation to root out corruption and mismanagement and talking about cutting benefits to all Detroit retirees.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton to discuss were Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, political consultant Greg Bowens and Fox 2 reporter Alexis Wiley.

Plus, Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road where he asked people whether the feds should be spending money trying to find Jimmy Hoffa.
