'I am a hunter and will not hesitate to shoot': Man tries to break into Kid Rock's home
Daily Mail ^ | August 3, 2013 | Hayley Peterson

Posted on 08/03/2013 12:02:37 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

Police arrested a 43-year-old Detroit man who attempted to break into Kid Rock's home.

The man, who has not been identified, was arrested at his home north of Detroit after the singer offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who could provide information on him.

Prior to his arrest, Kid Rock posted surveillance images of the suspect  - who was notably wearing crutches during the attempted burglary - on his website and stated that he is an 'avid hunter and marksman' and 'will not hesitate to shoot anyone' who threatens his family.

'Don't mess with a mother****** like me,' the singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, wrote.

The suspect rammed a white van through the gate to Kid Rock's lakefront home in Clarkston, Michigan around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Police have recovered and impounded the van. Wearing a baseball cap and a blue sweater, he then tried to break into a building on the property.  

'Thank God I was not on the property at the time of this attempted break in,' Kid Rock wrote. 'I am an avid hunter and marksman and I will not hesitate to shoot anyone who has myself or family in fear for our lives.'

'I take the invasion of my personal space very seriously regardless of who you are and YES, I do profile people,' he added. 'I am currently profiling any balding white male on crutches driving a white creeper van.'

Yes thank God Kid because if you shot and killed him Obama would have immediately declared that the guy you shot could have been his son and you would have been tried for murder.

Too funny. Don't think he's going to have any more problems with people trying to break into his house. LOL

The attempted home invader was a middle-aged white guy. Thus, no outrage would ensue if Kid Rock justifiably shot him.

I’d say he needs to reposition or add a camera so it catches the license plate of any vehicle approaching. That’s pretty basic.

If he’s a white guy, he is fair game. The worst that could come of it is that an all black jury might sentence you to two years of hip hop.

I sort of like Uncle Cracker, he’s OK, but I never realized that Jack White of the White Stripes was also from Detroit.

I got into the White Stripes only fairly recently but that was only because of Jack White’s other band; The Racontours; their most recent album “Consolers of the Lonely” is among my favorite albums of all time, there is not one bad or throw away song on the entire album. If you’ve never given it a listen, you might like it.

Jack White is a very talented and versatile musician, much under rated IMO. His collaborations with other artists across many different genres and musical styles is impressive (everyone from Loretta Lynn to Wanda Jackson to Alicia Keys to Insane Clown Posse to the Rolling Stones to Jimmy Page to Ricky Skaggs).

Old Enough [featuring Ricky Skaggs and Ashley Monroe]

The original album version.

The Raconteurs - Old Enough

Another artist who also hails from Detroit is Sufjan Stevens. You probably recognize his music from the instrumental in the most recent Red Bull Commercial.

The Source Timelapse (with Sufjan Stevens - Redford)

Perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea (Sufjan Stevens – he’s a bit strange) but Casimir Pulaski Day from his album “Illinois” BTW is really not a song about Casimir Pulaski, but a song about Steven’s high school girl friend who died from bone cancer on Casimir Pulaski Day – probably one of the most honest and absolutely one of the most heart breaking songs I’ve ever heard. OTOH, his song “Jacksonville” makes me smile.

Sufjan Stevens - Casimir Pulaski Day & Jacksonville

Salon says Detroit is bankrupt because racists like Hannity hate motown music.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3050576/posts

The simple fact is that motown music came and went but Detroit is still musically very strong and has produced some of the biggest names out there like Madonna and rappers who I could live without. As far as the traditional Motown music, its not being made anywhere.

All rappers are wannabe bad asses that are total wimps, who would cower in fear, if they were challenged by a grandma in a wheel chair. I don’t know why any one buys their phony attitude.

Kid Rock isn't a rapper. He used to be a rapper when he was young. Like many people, he matured as he got older. Today, and for nearly a decade now, Kid Rock has much more of a Southern Rock, Country Rock, Classic Rock sound.
