DETROIT (WXYZ) - It was a deadly night in the city of Detroit. From 6:00 am Friday, August 12th to 6:00 am Saturday, August 13th, a total of fifteen people were shot in the city. Six of those victims died at a total of 9 separate shooting scenes.
Mayor Dave Bing's office released the following statement:
"Reducing violent crime is our number one priority. Chief Godbee and the men and women of the Detroit Police Department are working around the clock to bring these criminals to justice. Our community must continue to work with us to stop this kind of violence. Every resident deserves to be safe and feel safe in their neighborhood."
I wouldn't expect anything less from the city that gave us all John Conyers, Kwame Kilpatrick, Carolyn Kilpatrick, Barbara Rose Collins, Coleman Young, and the Detroit School Boards.
The democrat politicians are demanding that we surrender and retreat from Detroit because it’s become a quagmire!
This is news? Sounds like a typical night in Motown.
HEY CALYPSO LOUIS, some of your people didn’t make your march in Harlem, they had previous killings to do.
Nothing new here.
Not just Democrats, black Democrats. Wherever there is a high concentration of blacks, there is a high concentration of crimes.
[devoutly wishing FR had a “like” button for responses]
I wonder how many of the 9 killed had as a last thought, I wish I had a gun.
I wonder how many of the 9 killers had purchased the gun legally.
I wonder how long it’s going to be before the country gets it. It’s not the guns that kill, it’s the demonic, idiotic social atmosphere that is being created with the entitlement attitude, combined with drugs that kill.
By the way Darren, were any of the dead whites?
Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
I'm so tough I vacation in Detroit!
Let's see where Detroit ranks... think I found the problem.
Six new DemocRAT voters.
In 1981, Houston, Texas had 701 murders. That seems high to me.
The only thing good coming out of Detroit nowadays is, “Hard Core Pawn”.
They didn't say, but it's the city of Detroit. It doesn't even have to be said here. Shooters were very likely black. Victims were very likely black. Small chance it was Mexican if it was in Southwest. The only white population anymore are elderly, some Downtown hipsters, some Romanians near Dearborn (maybe), and what's left of the Warrendale/Parkland city workers that didn't leave.
Sounds like it is time to wall off Detroit and make movies the reality.
Detroit was the City of the Future in Democratic Party promotions. They don't talk about it that way now do they? They own the total failure, just like Oakland, CA and Tacoma, Wa.
I worked in the N. Shepherd and 610 area where much of those murders took place back then. At times is was like a war zone. I actually thought the number was a bit higher that that though. I do remember that we had the distinction at the time of being the murder capital of the nation during those murderous years.
Obama needs to take his vacation in Detroit. He needs to see a city run with democrat ideas, for democrats, by democrats, and see the horror first hand...
I’m from Houston, and have witnessed some of those murders in bars and nightclubs, it used to be a very wild town.
That was quick and smart.
The press must be incredibly frustrated they can’t simply point the finger at Bush anymore. And even though it was all unsubstantiated, the readers/viewers always bought it!
Journalism was so easy then, eh?
And still is in certain quarters although the murder numbers are down significantly from those other high numbers of years gone by. I was born and raised in that town and have some fond memories of that town. I no longer recognize it nor no longer call it home. Got out about 10 years ago and dread having to drive into that growing cess pool to go see my docs at the Houston VA hospital on occasion.
90 years ago Detroit was one of the wealthiest cities in the world. Three generations later, and one term of LBJ, and viola, something great has vanished into thin air.
Aren't all of the dirtbag cities run by RATs?
After growing up in Houston before people mellowed, it was weird to live in San Diego and see people use a chalk board to keep track of who’s turn it was to challenge at the pool table, rather than killing each other for it, or at least fist fighting for the next spot. People didn’t jump you in the bathrooms in San Diego, people didn’t wait to shoot you as you were leaving the bar. I only had to take a knife away from one guy here, and I have never even seen a gun pulled in a bar here in San Diego, much less shootings and killings.
Shoot.. 15 shot in the Motor City, that is a slow night in Chicago, another DemoRAT shooting gallery.
What do you expect from unemployable ebonics experts? They have other career objectives! Hows that go? High risk, high income?
Between people moving out and people getting killed, Detroit will be empty farmland and forest in a few years.
whatever happened to midnight basketball.
Somebody shot the ball.
Diversity: our greatest strength. Or so we are told. Relentlessly.
Yet will still manage to have thousands upon thousands of city employees serving virtually no one.
Liberals have absolutely destroyed Detroit, yet the (mostly black) population will dutifully vote Democratic till the last resident turns out the lights.
It's already possible to graze cattle or sheep from Grand Circus Park out to 8-mile. Sad .................... FRegards
I agree: wall it off and make a reality show. A true “Survivor.”
You could shave 30 years off that estimate easy -
But yes, LBJ has this blood on his hands.
The saddest TV viewing ever are the Detroit episodes of A&E’s The First 48. I think of all the Detroit murders on that series, maybe one was solved.
We’re trying to keep up with you here in Columbus. Our rockingest day so far this year was 10 shot, 4 dead.
Not to hijack the thread, but I am watching The First 48 S11E10 (trial of the Lester street killer) right now. It is absolutely riveting. Try and get a hold of it.
Out of 100 or so murders in Columbus every year, 85% of the victims and the killers are black (in a city with a 24% black population.) And 80% of those murders occur within a 30 square block area.
Not Bushes fault/
...you forgot Kenneth Cockrel...one of the worst!
1796 The United States takes possession of Detroit from Great Britain under terms of the Jay Treaty.
As one of the local papers pointed out, if one is not involved in some nefarious activity, the odds of being shot are inconsequential.
Each dead gang banger adds value to the city, by decreasing non-value added inhabitants. Let them kill each other off.
Well above the average of almost one per day (308 in 2010).
Was Obama in town or something?
Thats because people there dont talk to “5-O”. Snitches get stitches dont you know.
They would wallow in their own filth and blood than rat out a “Bro”.
They complain when the police pull over and question blacks because they say it is “profiling” then they have the Gall to complain that the police aint doing enough to protect them.
Nuke it from orbit, its the only way to be sure.
The proto-typical Democrat welfare state.
Congratulations to them.
Somebody also stole the wiring for the lights.And sold the hoops for scrap metal.
