    As long as it's the criminals blood running in the streets, I don't see the problem. They'll get the message eventually, or get thinned out enough it will go down.

    BTW, that article is full of fail.

    1- They want cops to stop crimes? Sounds great, good goal; but what do you do when the cop can't be there?
    2- But there is a shortage of police officers. Makes #1 tough.
    3- They think self defense is both illegal and vigilantism. Brilliant!
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    Former homicide detective Mike Carlisle says justifiable or not, 378 people were murdered in the Motor City last year.
    I wonder if he felt this way when he was still on the force and one of his fellow officers had to kill someone? I doubt he called it murder then.

    I personally feel safer everytime one of these animals is taken out. Just because they decide that my family or I are their target for the day, does not mean that I'm going to be a willing victim.

    My take on the story is #1. The author is anti-gun for failing to provide the other side of the story. #2. The local police not only are understaffed but also anti-gun.

    That being the case and most folks have fled that city might I suggest a low yield tactical nuke! Start over and call it New Detroit.

    Wasn't this the theme in the movie Robo Cop?
    I agree that the author is just spewing anti-gun nonsense. The article is full of contradictions:
    "If you don't have the protection of police officers, then you're forcing people to take matters into their own [hands]," .... which is illegal
    If it were illegal, it wouldn't be JUSTIFIABLE homicide.
    "It's important that the citizens realize that although we are experiences these spikes in these homicides and the shootings, that the homicide unit is working diligently to try to close these cases,"
    This sounds like it was taken out of context deliberately to juxtapose that self defense and justifiable homicide is a crime. While the cases may be investigated and cleared, this isn't what is implied. And another similar example, where the intent may be different than the quoted wording:
    You don't get the true meaning of what the homicide count means if you're going to start deleting figures from it. You're getting a false sense of security, and right now I don't think a false sense of security is what this city needs," he said.

    What am I missing? I see no problem with people legally protecting themselves and their families.

    Wow, the author's bias is so bad it can't be missed. It's too bad he doesn't get to live his dream and be a victim of one of those "unfortunate people" that was justifiably shot.

    I don't understand people who think like him. There is no logic to their thought pattern, and there can be no reasoning with them.

    jus·ti·fy (jst-f)
    v. jus·ti·fied, jus·ti·fy·ing, jus·ti·fies
    v.tr.
    1. To demonstrate or prove to be just, right, or valid: justified
    2. To declare free of blame; absolve[/
    The way I see it, there was no reason to even write something like this article because of the definition of justified. So what is the Author's point or case? He didn't say anything about homicide that was not justified. Just more anti-gun bs to make it look like guns need to be banned or at the very least so severely regulated, there won't be any more legal folk using them.

    Citizens killing citizens because they're afraid. What does this mean?

    Oh, this was supposed to be reporting? Hmmm... I thought it was an Op-Ed piece. And a rather stupid one at that.
