A lieutenant in charge of the Detroit Police Departments drug unit says he was the victim of racial discrimination and subjected to a hostile work environment for reporting wrongdoing.

There’s a white person left in Detroit? Who knew?
Somewhat shockingly (to me) the 2010 census shows 7.8% non-Hispanic whites.
Yes Detroit has lots of white cops. but from my experience in law enforcement special units like Narcotics or the gang squad are largely political animals. Entry into such units can depend on who you know and who you are, and less on your skills or experience. I don’t know what happened in this specific case, but I do find the lieutenants concerns plausible. FWIW.
From reading the story I get the impression that Flanagan is suing based on nothing. He claims he’s being transferred and chief Craig says he’s not.
Here they are:
I’ve always liked Chief Craig for going after crime on the streets, but this is the second time I know of that he’s come down on the side of the aggressors who have targeted whites. The first time was that reporter from Fox 2 News who was trying to get a statement from Cushingberry and ended up getting roughly shoved by Cushingberry. Craig investigated and found no evidence of assault. That was BS. So may this be.
OhMy, one of looks like one of my ex-prom dates! Yikes
Good. Too many years of discrimination. It has to stop.
