Parents Say Detroit Police Refuse To Charge Men Who Killed Their Son (Black on white hate crime)

Could Detroit’s money trouble be holding up justice in a high-profile double murder case?

It’s been nearly a year since 18-year-old Jacob Kudla and his 17-year-old friend Jourdan Bobbish left their Westland homes — never to be seen alive again. Their bodies were found five days later in an overgrown field near City Airport, along Lyford Street at French Road on Detroit’s east side. Both were found dressed only in undergarments, with a gunshot wound to the head.

“They beat the kids up, put them in the trunk of a car and took them to a field and shot them for the fun of it,” Bernie Kudla, Jacob’s dad, told WWJ’s Marie Osborne.

Bernie Kudla and his wife Vergie said they can’t believe their son’s case remains open and unsolved

“I wake up every morning sad with a broken heart, thinking I have to go through another day of this,” he said. “Jacob was the best thing ever and, you know, I was waiting for grandkids, and that will never happen.”

“The only thing that keeps me going today is trying to get justice for him. That’s the only reason I get up,” she said.

The parents said they are especially frustrated because police told them that the people responsible for her son’s death are already behind bars, awaiting trial on two other murders.

“We know how, we know where, we know who, the police department knows who, the prosecution knows who,” Vergie Kudla said.

Officials have told the family that there isn’t enough evidence to try the case, so they can’t sign an arrest warrant for the two alleged killers. The family, however, said there is plenty of evidence. The couple feels that the prosecution is just unwilling to go forward because they have the perpetrators on other cases.

The youngest son (of six) of a friend was killed like this. Sad.

Let me get this straight

White on Black murder is racist

Black on White murder, nothing to see here.

Now, who are these idiots again? I bet they are Democrats

Detroit is far too unsafe for balcks, even worse for whites.

There’s people still living in Detroit that are not Lo-Fos? Amazing.

When are we going to sign up against violent black racism?
*******************************************************************
You sign up by arming yourself, getting yourself well trained, and practice, practice, practice realistically. And, assuming you don’t live in a disgusting state such as Maryland or Illinois, get your concealed carry permit and then carry. Be prepared.

And I’m getting sick and tired of ALL kinds of black racism, violent or not. These are by far the most racist group of people in America.

Here is where you anonymously inform the authorities that if they are not arrested and jailed in 24 hours they will be dead in front of your precinct

I’m seeing a lot of screeching about racism here but I’m not seeing anything more than thugs targeting random victims who happened to be white.

I can see the prosecutors point but just a tiny bit. If they are convicted and given life without parol then not much point in the other trials tho I think I would go ahead and try them anyway just in case.

The smart strategy is not to go into cities like Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, etc.

“The parents said they are especially frustrated because police told them that the people responsible for her son’s death are already behind bars, awaiting trial on two other murders.” from the article

You go with the cases with the best evidence. Even if you know you have the right person if you put them on trial with out enough to convince the jury not just the parents, if they are acquitted you can’t put them on trial again.

You are 100% right. Blacks are the most racist people ion America. Their hatred taught to them from infancy.

Obama is only half black but still makes a good example.

Good point. If they’re acquitted in the case they’re in jail for now, I think they can be tried on the other case.
