So, Will Detroit Be Next?

The Detroit News: Fed officer kills robbery suspect, probation violator

A 20-year-old armed robbery suspect was fatally shot Monday by a federal officer on the city's west side, angering residents who had to be placated by the city's police chief.

The Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team, a task force that included officers from the Detroit Police Department, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Marshals, were serving an armed robbery warrant in the 9500 block of Evergreen at the time of the shooting around 1:13 p.m., Detroit Police Chief James Craig said.

The thug apparently died from one of the most harmful activities a thug can do "doing nothin'":

One man in the crowd yelled: "The (ICE agent) shot that guy for no reason."

"No reason" translates to the armed robbery of a pizza deliveryman, felon in possession of a firearm and being a habitual offender, natch.

In addition, "no reason" apparently is equated to advancing with a hammer towards an officer . (Note that the linked story was updated and headline changed after I had originally posted this).

The crowd at the scene apparently started to get all whipped up and excited:

Craig said he was called to the scene by Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt after a crowd gathered and became agitated.

Television cameras captured officers holding back people as they tried to maneuver past yellow crime scene tape.

"They were very excited," Craig told The Detroit News.

The good news here, such as it is, is that the thug was killed by Black officer, and a federal one at that, thus reducing the racist outrage by the usual suspects.

It's a sad state of affairs indeed when we have to breathe a sigh of relief that it was a Black LEO that shot and killed a Black thug.

Quote: "Ron Scott of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality took issue with the shooting Monday, saying fugitive apprehension is not a license to kill.

"In light of national incidents, we find this latest shooting appalling, distressing and despicable that another young black man has to be killed in his house in front of his family..."

Does Michigan have any laws against inciting a riot. This Ron Scott is making stuff up and passing it off as truth.

Ron Scott has been making stuff up for a couple of decades. He has absolutely no credibility with anyone other than the media and the local black community, both of which believe everything he says.
