How Dare The Detroit Police Shoot Back At Someone Shooting At Them?

Yes, that is the current local BLM cause and outrage de jour - a criminal who shot at Detroit Cops as they were arresting another criminal and then was relieved of his mortal coil by those same cops who returned fire.

The Detroit News: Detroit Will Breathe returns to protest near site of police shooting

Protesters began marching at the intersection of McNichols and San Juan, near the location where Detroit Police officers shot and killed 19-year-old Hakim Littleton while making an arrest of another individual.

Talk about burying the lede - it took until the eighth paragraph before we learn form the article that Mr. Littleton did in fact do soemthing that made him rather worthy of getting shot by the police:

Craig said the shooting was justified and released footage showing Littleton shooting first at officers before police returned fire.

Yes, the camera footage has been released, mere hours after the shooting - and protesters are complaining it wasn't released quickly enough as after all, they've watched CSI on tv and investigations of a fatal shooting should be resolved in mere minutes before the next commercial, right?

There also complaining the police weren't nice to them when the protest initially started and the protestors threw bricks and bottles at police.

Well the body-cam footage certainly erased the myth that he dindu nothing, but his brother is still arguing he's a good guy:

Littleton's older brother, Rashad Littleton-Schafer, spoke after the protesters finished their route shortly after 8 p.m. and said he is demanding a sit-down with Police Chief James Craig and Mayor Mike Duggan.

"My brother was a good, good man. He was a warrior," Littleton-Shafer said. "I want to let everyone know this, including Chief James Craig, the mayor of Detroit. I want a meeting with them by next week."

It's good to want things, I suppose. We will note that his dear brother "warrior" Hakim was on probation at the time for armed robbery when he decided to take shots at the cops.

So yes, BLM and Detroit Will Breathe are busy protesting the justifiable shooting of a thug who without provocation took shots at the police. Expect his name to join those of other criminals celebrated by BLM.
