DETROIT (WWJ) Detroit police are working to identify 10 or 12 people behind a vigilante mob attack that left a 54-year-old man clinging to life after he allegedly struck a child who had darted into the street.
As first reported by WWJ Newsradio 950, an 11-year-old boy suffered a broken leg when he was hit by a pickup truck after he walked into the street near Morang and Cadieux. When the driver got out of his car to check on the boy, about a dozen men on the scene attacked him, beating him unconscious, according to police.

Black on black crime?
I can’t remember; is Detroit the capital of Liberia, or just it’s largest city?
Detroit is a war zone; a decaying infrastructure barely supporting an ever declining population and a devolving social structure.
Come the crash, the day the EBT cards stop working, Detroit will likely be the first city in flames.
That’s why many in such a circumstance chose to drive away from the scene of an accident rather than being set up by a mob.
Pokoj believes the neighbors know who did it, but she doesnt expect witnesses will speak up.
A lot of people around here, everythings hush-hush, she said. The sad part is, probably the people that hurt him are going to come in the next day like nothing happened. I never know who Im serving.
And then there is this report........
His daughter, Felicia Utash, said after he was beaten, he was robbed of his money, his wallet and his credit cards.
Detroit should be walled off and the savages left to eat eachother until such time they can act civilized.
Note to self: Cancel sightseeing week to lovely, friendly Detroit.
And a number of years ago a friend's daughter was shot at during an attempted car jacking at the intersection of Cadieux and Outer Drive as she was stopped at the red light. The bullet just missed her head and embeded in the pillar on the drivers side........
Sure would seem that a perfect defense situation is being created here for someone involved in a hit and run... âYour honour, there is already precedents out there that clearly indicate that I would likely have been killed if I did not get the stink out of there immediately.....â
There is nothing about race here, but I think one can be sure that if the driver was white and the assailants black, you can be sure that that is the way "residents" always respond in those kinds of situations.
The thing I worry about in Cleveland is that the city has gotten pretty good at bringing tourist and convention dollars "downtown". The neighborhoods will be left unpoliced if that's what it takes to have the manpower to keep those tax dollars flowing.

It would be no different if the driver were black (and may very well be).
Yeah I caught that as well.
In such a situation, the best thing to do would be to, KEEP DRIVING, get on your cell phone, call 911, and report the location of the accident and that an ambulance is needed. Then arrange to meet a cop car ELSEWHERE to make your statement.
I have been reading Maybury’s Thousand Year War. The similarities are eerie.
I go to Detroit and have never felt threatened but then I’m not a coward or a racist.
