Shocking CCTV footage from a gas station in Detroit shows a 64-year-old man being stabbed in a brutal attack while witnesses stood by and watch.
The horrifying images show the victim being repeatedly knifed by a hooded attacker, while two other men in the store look on without trying to intervene.
Police are looking for the attacker and the two witnesses following the incident at the gas station off of Lodge Freeway near 8 Mile Road.

Obama’s people. Their culture makes me sick.
Hoodie, knuckledragging attacker, elderly victim, crumbling city, idiots stand by and do nothing.
Same old sh*t.
You would have thought that the witnesses would, at minimum, rifle through his pockets for loose change.
Unarmed, who tries to restrain a thug with a knife, after seeing him stab someone? The stabbing is shocking, not what the witnesses did not do.
..news reports have the guy arrested, but no name or age...
I assisted with prepping dinner at a homeless shelter on the East End of Newport News, VA (the .. ahem .. most "urban" part of the city) a few years ago. When I left there at about 9 p.m., as I pulled onto the main thoroughfare back to civilization, I glanced off to my left and saw what must've been 30 of them gathered on a barely-lit street corner... just standing there. No bus stop.. no other activity... just a pack of loitering 'hood rats. I have never understood the propensity to loiter in large packs like that...
This is our future.
Sadly, if a witness(es) intervenes and stops/subdues the perp, he/she is rewarded a week or two later with a lawsuit from the perp.
Sadly, that is what this country has come to.
Hope the victim recovers fully.
Come on! What it takes is ONE to step up. No one wants to end up the chump when the others bail.
End of story.
They're waiting for targets of opportunity. My theory as to why crime has skyrocketed since the 1960's is the implementation of housing assistance, food stamp and cash welfare programs. These programs mean that families no longer have to work to pay the bills. What's worse is that recipients don't have to maintain crime-free records to remain eligible. A fair number turn to crime to obtain the extras. But some of it is pure boredom. Without anything to do all day, some occupy their time with video games and TV, whereas others turn to attacking people for fun and profit.
How many average Americans have been trained in self defense and could successfully fend off a knife attack?
I ain’t watching it because I’ll get too pissed off. Ban guns but knives are OK, so this way somebody can stab you to death and you can’t defend yourself.
“This is our future.”
Yeah, but diversity is our strength. Or so I’ve been told.
Rick Ector, Detroit open carry advocate and firearms instructor.
He was robbed once, many years ago.
Detroit is an open carry city but apparently no one there was.
“The horrifying images show the victim being repeatedly knifed by a hooded attacker, while two other men in the store look on without trying to intervene.”
“Interveneing” without a firearm is a good way to find yourself on a slab. Even with a firearm at that kind of range you can get you killed.
What to do with Detroit...bankrupt and populated by feral pitbulls? I’d say about 100 megatons would do the trick.
I watched a BBC show called “Meet the Natives”, where they took stone-age tribesmen from a Pacific island, and brought them to stay with families in England, with all the modern conveniences. These tribesmen had a custom where, after the evening meal, all the men would gather and chew some local stimulant plant and shoot the breeze all night long. They couldn’t understand how a similar custom wasn’t observed by the people they stayed with. That is, until they were introduced to a local pub, which they recognized as the British version of their tribal custom.
Seems to me that standing around on the street corner at night is the ghetto version of this “tribal meeting”.
They’ll revert to that “raped ape” behavior when all you have to do is look at them cross-eyed.
Probably got stabbed because he wouldn’t come up with some money.
If you do something then you will have to speak to the police. The code is you don’t talk to the police.
“When wild animals attack, film at 11.”
I don’t know how anyone could just stand by and watch something like this.
once is all it takes.........
Thirty of them and all you have is a seven round magazine.
My friend Mr. Smith/Wesson and I are very well trained.
If this was a gang initiation, then the "witnesses" would be fellow gang members making sure he did the initiation requirement, with the added job of stepping in if the target tried to defend himself.
Heh... not in Virginia.
The guy getting knifed looked white. That explains nobody helping him.
Michigan, including Detroit, has had "Shall Issue" CCW for many years. That said, if you do defend yourself, consider what your jury pool will look like, as well as the cops, prosecutor, and judge.
<...I have never understood the propensity to loiter in large packs like that...>
They are too afraid of each other to stand alone.
The police have made it very clear...”You enter Detroit at your own risk”.
They all recognize the city is a drug, crime infested ghetto....”until the demographics change”...it will not change from it’s spiral.
Those who deny the obvious in Detroit are deluding themselves.
The picture in post six is Rick Ector, a second amendment advocate in Detroit area. He is the go to guy for the local news on such matters. He also runs firearms classes that I expect is a gold mine for him.
Detroit is a prison without walls and a very scary place to drive through.
<....”consider what your jury pool will look like, as well as the cops, prosecutor, and judge”....>
Even Holder showed the ‘victim mentality’ yesturday....so pay-back will always be ‘the hidden motive’.
Waiting for prey.
I don’t stop for gas in Detroit. I wait till I get to Dearborn (yes (big gasp), Dearborn you read that right) if I’m going west or at least Southfield or Redford if I’m going Northwest.
