The Renisha McBride Incident: Curiouser and Curiouser

More facts are slowly coming out in the death of Renisha McBride, and the reported facts are raising even more questions about what may have happened that night.

It turns out the auto accident she was in was that she struck a parked vehicle in Detroit around 1 am.

The shooting then took place 6 blocks away from the accident scene and more than 2 hours later at 3:40 am in Dearborn Heights.

Dearborn Heights police have stated the shooting was not racially motivated, and the claim that the shotgun was fired accidentally hasn't been retracted yet. Further in contrast to her family's claim that she was shot in the back of the head, she was shot in the face.

In other strangeness, while the police call was assigned a low priority of a no injury accident, police didn't show up for 40 minutes until there was a second call when somebody saw that she was bleeding and called 911, after she had already left the scene and then returned.

She then disappears from the scene before the police get there and finally shows up six blocks away two hours later banging on this guy's front door.

According to the Detroit Free Press someone claimed that at the scene she seemed confused and stated she wanted to go home.

As usual, the facts are fragmented, information so far released is biased and full of rumor and exaggeration.  So far many facts are now not what people originally claimed they were and I'm sure we'll see more information develop and we'll likely be surprised at what comes up.

Did he pull a Biden and shoot his shotgun through the door? We don't know yet.

Was she alone or did she have some friends with her when she tried to get in the door? We don't know yet.   No toxicology report on her has been released at this point nor do we know if one was ordered.

If this claim that the shotgun was fired accidentally proves to be a true statement, and again, that's not confirmed then, without anything more, expect at least a manslaughter charge from the Wayne County Prosecutor.

Meanwhile, the usual suspects are still whipping up the racial angle, and there's no proof at all of any racial bias or "profiling" as they claim to have occurred here.
