Finally someone in Detroit gets it. There needs to be a lot more police chiefs like this in MANY American cities to curtail the violence. He should move to Chicago next, right after he gets Detroit back on its road to recovery.
Craig has done a lot of good things since taking the job. He did away with the idiotic idea of virtual precincts which were precincts that were staffed only during the day. No more letting a dozen officers gather at a crime scene where 1 or 2 are necessary. He’s even looking into criminally charging dispatchers who lie to callers after at least two people have been murdered while awaiting police that weren’t even dispatched. He cut the mayor’s security detail from 20 officers to 6. He restarted the stop and frisk policy ended years ago by Chairman Young.
The attitude of the people toward police has changed dramatically in just a few months. I noticed it in the praise from this woman after she shot at some attackers. A year ago she might not have bothered to call them at all.
