 Detroit Police Chief on Preventing Riots, Damage: ‘We Don’t Retreat’
By Andrew Davenport | July 31, 2020 | 12:23pm EDT
 

Explaining how the police have succeeded in preventing riots or at least limiting the damage from riots caused by Black Lives Matter protests, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said, “We don’t retreat here in Detroit.”

“We’re just not going to do it,” Chief Craig said on FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, July 28.  “You saw the images, Tucker, of streets where there was lawlessness, looting, burning, no sight of police officers. We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals.”

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

The Chief says the Mayor stands with the police, the community backs the police. Those are the three legs that are needed for the city to stand.

They are not present elsewhere with the Mayors undermining law enforcement efforts and city councils calling for dissolution of the police departments, an environment that cannot fail to foster radical 'vigilante' groups 'upholding' whatever they decide to be the law against whomever they decide it applies to --or not.

Good for the city of Detroit!
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Well, what's left of it from the last time they had major riots, anyway.

They learned. With people like "the Rehab Addict" doing shows about buying and restoring homes which were nice places once in an urban wasteland, letting some jerks come in and destroy that narrative isn't good for the City or their jobs.

@Cripplecreek  used to talk about Deetroit...said it's been on a long, slow turnaround.  They encourage people to carry in Detroit.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

Who woulda thunk that Detroit could have a better future in front of it than do Portland, Seattle, or Minneapolis...?

There hasn't been anything worth destroying in years.  Portland and Seattle still have lots of unbroken windows. :shrug:
