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.
re: I go to Detroit and have never felt threatened but then Im not a coward or a racist.
Driver is described in most media accounts as “suburban” and “pickup driving”. He is ID’d as being white by a few outlets. I think the huffypost has a picture of him.
White Man Beaten By Mob In Detroit After Hitting Boy With Truck: Was It A Hate Crime?
Cripplecreek, I respect your judgment and your position as being a Michigan resident and therefore, much more familiar than I with these kinds of matters, but here I disagree. Any white man would have received this kind of treatment but I don’t think a black man would. Just my perception.
that happened on our neighborhood to they came out like roaches, sometimes I wonder if it is a set up
I grew up in a poor white area neighboring a poor black area and learned early on to be forever vigilant. I may survived to adulthood thanks only to the efforts of an armed white man that rescued my 13-year old hiney from a group of approximately 75 black yutes (Tiggers).
Young black males often jump in front of cars driven by Whites just to cause mayhem - sometimes they misjudge.
Be careful so we can continue to enjoy your posts.
Nice grammar, huh.
The fact that people like you take such joy in these stories says a lot more about you than anything.
Detroit's the city that tried EVERY liberal idea in the book... and became an American hellhole.
The good thing - - some Detroiters are disillusioned with the crap liberals sold them and are turning things around. Obviously this bunch of thugs didn't get that message yet...they're still democrat useful idiots.
The 'change for the better' stated when a Black Panther (some years back) threatened to burn down the city if his temper tantrum wasn't satisfied - and half the country asked where to send the matches...
Yeah, the place is still a hellhole - but it's an American not a Liberian one... and it just might come back.
When is America going to start talking about black racism?
The driver was white, perps were all black.
I lived in that neighborhood, right down the street from Finney HS at Cadieux and Chandler Park. This was 25 years ago. It wasn’t bad then, but you’d never catch me in that neighborhood now. It’s completely turned over. It’s sad what’s happened to Detroit.
“At a Thursday news conference, Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said Steve Utash “is still in critical condition, and it’s really not looking all that good.”
Likely a bunch of thugs will get life without parole over this. No way will that many keep their mouth shut.
Tough one and each situation is obviously unique. As they say, when seconds count, emergency services are minutes (and longer) away from arriving. It also depends on the environment i.e. in this case, in order to drive away the driver might have had to plow through a crowd. Sounds like a no-win situation to me.
He was white.
Yeah I see that. It still doesn’t make any difference. A black man would have faced the same fate in that neighborhood.
Insane to live anywhere that there is more than 5% of these “people”.
“A black man would have faced the same fate in that neighborhood.”
It wouldn’t happen to a black driver in a white neighborhood either.
>I go to Detroit and have never felt threatened but then Im not a coward or a racist.
And if a kid stepped in front of you and you stopped to give him aid in this circumstance, you would be a brave non-racist on life support in the hospital. I doubt these feral urbanites would have given much thought to your mental state as they beat you to within inches of your life.
NO he wouldn’t
Make no mistake, they tried to kill him!
That’s true, I have lived in this old town neighborhood for 26 years, it was once beautiful, now it is a war zone.
If you dare to speak about it on forums you are labeled a racist.
Yes, they almost dare you to hit them,they block the streets with their cars, and glare at you while you politely wait for them to finish their conversation with the ten pedestrians,who are just waiting for you to make a move.
My more liberal acquaintances who live in the burbs and vote and pander, wont even come into my neighborhood, hypocrites, yes there is such a thing as white guilt.
It wouldnt happen to a black driver in a white neighborhood either.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I have never lived there myself, but I understand that if a Black were to ‘get in trouble’ in South Boston when it was inhabited by the ‘Southies’, he didn’t stand much chance of leaving unscathed.
Of course, ‘they’ didn’t think much of anyone else there either....<:
And the the woman at a local restaurant stated that no one would stop in that neighborhood in this situation. It would have happened no matter who it was.
The brother of one of my black friends was beaten to death by his neighbors some years ago. Granted he shouldn’t have been dressing like a woman and offering to “service” the locals but it wouldn’t have made a bit of difference if he had been white. There are some things you don’t do in the hood no matter who you are.
Naïveté can be a wonderful thing - until it's not.
Justice for Whitey in Detroit has already been served.
I dont doubt that a bit! Chicago and Detroit should be Sister Cities
