DETROIT - It’s anarchy.
Here are the major stories out of Detroit. And that’s just this week.
• A 14-year-old blows his mother’s head off because she won’t let him go out with his friends.
• Two 15-year-old boys go on a carjacking spree and shoot-up a six year old in the back seat of a car.
• Two bodies are dumped in an alley on the southwest side. They are bound and gagged, their throats slit. The absence of law is so obvious, the perpetrator feels comfortable enough to light them on fire in public.
• Two women were kidnapped and thrown in the back of a trunk following a gun fight. They are still missing. The main suspect went to turn himself in at the Sixth Precinct and had to wait while the police unlocked the front door.
• An 86-year-old man was carjacked at a west side gas station in the middle of daylight. He was brutalized, his leg broken. As he crawled toward the door, people walked around him like he was so much garbage.
• The police – decimated by cutbacks -- still have no one in custody, two weeks after a 9-month old was killed in a drive-up shooting. The gunman unloaded 37-rounds from an AK-47 assault rifle. The motive, it is believed, springs from an argument at a baby shower. Filling the police void to find the killer is a group of men, The Detroit 300, who working on a tip, marched a crowd up, down and through a neighborhood -- shining lights in strange people’s windows.
Time to call in the National Guard.
