Detroit 300 Taking a Stand after Nine-Month-Old Murdered
MyFoxDetroit ^ | Feb 22, 2012 | Amy Lange

Posted on 02/27/2012 2:30:31 AM PST by equaviator

DETROIT (WJBK) -- "These babies have been accosted and victimized on our watch, so as men it's demanded upon us to stand up," said Raphael Johnson, president of Detroit 300.

An impassioned plea from the men of the Detroit 300 imploring the men of Detroit to take action in the wake of so many children being murdered.

"Where are the uncles, the cousins, the fathers, the brothers of these victims, these babies? Where are you at and what are you doing? Why [are] you not out marching in the street?" Johnson said. "If it applies to you, you need to get off the couch. If it applies to you, you need to put that weed down and stop being so high. If it applies to you, you need to put the beer down, the liquor and the alcohol, and take your rightful place in our community."

This as the family of nine-month-old Delric Miller works on his obituary and designs t-shirts to remember the little boy killed as he slept at his home on Greenview on Detroit's west side Monday morning. Before dawn, a gunman opened fire. Nearly 40 bullets pierced the walls. One of them hit little Delric.

"I wanted to do something to help the family in this hard time right now," said Clayton Carter with Can You Picture This?

So, he is selling t-shirts to help pay for the funeral. Everyone wants to help.

Detroit Police are working with state and federal agencies to catch the killer, some coward from some gang, the very people the men of the Detroit 300 say they're coming after.

"We don't need a search warrant. We don't need any probable cause. All we need is for you to commit a felony and we [are] coming to get you period," said Johnson.

The beauty of the Detroit 300, they say, is that they understand the code on the streets. They understand that people don't want to snitch to police, but they want people to talk to them. There's a hotline. It's 313-826-8662.

The Detroit 300 also says they're going to be deploying hundreds of men to area hot spots once a week and they're coming after the folks who are on the wrong side of the law.

If you would like to join the Detroit 300, call 313-826-2040 or visit www.TheDetroit300.org.

CORRECTION: It happened in Detroit on the east side (as though it makes a whole lot of difference).

Detroit is considered “the Most Liberal City In America!”. Gary, In is the 2nd most liberal city in America.

WHAT DID THEY THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN?

Murder rates in Detroit were higher back in the ‘70’s but today we see infants, toddlers and young girls being killed in the crossfire. WTF!

Big talk from the code-talkers. Unless they have the courage to admit that this is a cultural problem, rather than a legal problem, nothing is going to change. Tell your daughters to marry the father of their children and tell your sons to marry the mother of their child. That might be a good place to start, among others. We live in the greatest country in the world and for some of us, it seems, there is a constant struggle just to stay civilized. It's to the point where this nonsense is so tiring, it's not even worth the effort to listen anymore, let alone care...

You know, that's what they say but I don't believe it. My parents lived on Detroit's east side and my dad was an executive lieutenant at the 13th precinct down by Wayne state. Most of the fringe neighborhoods were still predominately white and the neighborhoods were still in relative good shape. Most of the crime was occuring in the projects such as Brewster.

Almost every morning now we're hearing of an overnight murder or arson.

And here's another update, the news just reported that a 6 year old boy was killed when the car he and his father were driving in was riddled with bullets last night. This was on the east side in the Warren and Knottingham area......just a couple blocks from where I lived in the 70's...

“Big talk from the code-talkers.”

The Detroit 300 have publicly called upon the perpetrator(s) to turn themselves in, whereupon the armed citizen’s group will personally escort them to authorities for their own safety.

Underlying the cultural problem is a government problem. As long as government subsidizes single moms, then we will continue to have the pathologies that single motherhood creates.

Stop welfare entirely. When girls HAVE NO CHOICE but to defer motherhood until they are married to a responsible man who will marry and support them, then they will stop spreading their legs so readily for any gang bangers that stumbles by. When guys without legitimate jobs are no longer able to get laid, then they will get jobs, and study in school so that they become qualified for legitimate jobs. And ONLY then.

I agree, everyone seems to be bashing these guys, it takes courage to stand up like they are. I think some of the black community have had enough. This is encouraging to see.

This is the kind of attitude we need to take back our streets, let the animals know we won’t tolerate their criminal behavior anymore. Prayers up for these folks.

I don't buy that anymore. At some point, everyone has to take responsibility for their own circumstances, and you either make it better, or you make it worse. Everything else is just excuses. Normal, intelligent, responsible adults don't let things like this get out of hand for generations, regardless of anything else. Even the men, don't act like men. That's about as far as I'm willing to go on a public board without risking the possibility of saying something that might get me banned.

I'm telling you, I have had it with this crap.

They are the ones doing the shooting.Or maybe they are in jail for doing the shootings that happened ten or 20 years ago.

These kids learned from the older generation.They are the new generation of killers. It has been passed on from Father to son.

How do you propose making the irresponsible take responsibility? Irresponsible parents produce irresponsible kids. The only way to break the cycle is to stop making it feasible for the irresponsible to have children.

Proposing and implementing a solution is no different in principle than the system that is already in place. Neither will work and unless they are willing to defer to a common culture, which they are not, then nothing is ever going to change. Diversity doesn’t strengthen a population, it divides. That was the point of Babel. I’m to the point now where I don’t really care what culture dominates America. Just pick one and be done with it...

Yeah but he has found a way to raise money for a Rolex and a Mercedes with this 300 scam. He’s gone legit. Keep the murder rate up and he’ll have a Bentley.

If you aren’t part of the solution, there’s good money to be made prolonging the problem.

What I'm proposing is this: that the middle class STOPS making it feasible for the underclass to behave irresponsibly. I'm addressing the middle class, and the need for a change to ITS culture of tolerating bad behavior from the underclass.

I'm not asking for the underclass's willing acceptance of change. I don't care if they like it or not.

Silly me - when a baby is shot and dies, I was unaware it was a case of “These babies have been accosted and victimized on our watch.

Dead, even murdered, but not accosted.

You are exactly right. It is the culture of a majority of blacks today, which is even glorified in rap music and hollywood. The democrat party is directly responsible for current black culture, and ultimately was done for the sake of keeping blacks on the democrat plantation. Also, when you watch any reality crime show in big cities, every black person the authorities ever come into contact with, is already in the system starting around 15 years old. It seems to me that the government authorities only ever deal with the clean up after the predictable and distressing consequences of a culture with no morals or ethics, and never even mention the root cause behind the murder, drugs, and mayhem. The culture that is breeding and indoctrinating their children to be mindless, soulless, indifferent violent animals, is never, ever addressed.

The black youth of today are literally being sacrificed on the alter of the democrat party election machine. Welfare and other free entitlements is the ball and chain that keep them from escaping.

Chocolate cities.
A term made popular back in the late 60s and 70s when blacks were blaming their demise on white mayors/city councils, white schools/teachers, white cops, etc.
Told us how great it was going to be when all those positions of power and authority were filled by blacks.
Well, here we are 45 years later and all one needs to do is look at "black america" to see who was right.
Total destruction ... physically, spiritually and culturally.

IMO kudos to the 'Detroit 300'. The Detroit Police couldn't help if they wanted to since the city is broke and the PD force has been slashed beyond the bone. So someone has to step up and be the 'Town Marshal'.

And like back in the 'Wild West', the best Town Marshals were those who knew how the 'outlaws' acted as they too were outlaws -- or strode the line of good & bad in their past. Like Wyatt Earp with Doc Holiday, or James Butler Hickok aka: 'Wild Bill': Lawman and Gunfighter. So these 300 Detroit men are perfect as they're from 'the street' and know it better than any cop.

That aside, if a hypothetical group of 300 White folks organized to fight gang crime on their own they'd be called Vigilantes, Domestic Terrorists, and the KKK. And Eric 'My people' Holder would have the FBI all over them like flies on poop, with a man hunt not seen since John Dillinger was on the loose.

Not to mention the conniption fits the MSM would be having. Chrissy Matthews would have spit flying out of his mouth with each word. Hell he could even have a cardiac right there on live tv.

And then, when any of the hypothetical 'White 300' were arrested Terrorist Charges would be filed plus a laundry list of other 'civil rights' charges. They'd be facing 'Life Plus' in a Federal Super-Max Prison when convicted (and convicted they'd be, take that to the bank).

But alas, the way society is disintegrating at Light Speed, we all may be forced to do the same as the 'Detroit 300' in the near future. Then let the chips fall where they may and the 'G' can take its best shot at those protecting their families 'outside the law'.
