1 dead after 10 people shot at child’s birthday party on Detroit’s west side

Detroit police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened at a child’s birthday party on the city’s west side.

Detroit Police Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said shots were fired around 8:30 p.m. at the basketball courts at Dexter and Webb, where a large crowd of about 400 people were gathered for a birthday party.

A 20-year-old man was killed and a 46-year-old man is in critical condition. Eight other people, including three women and five men, were also shot and some were taken to the hospital. Dolunt said it was a “miracle” no children were shot.


Black crime such as this is so unremarkable that the Detroit Free Press relegates it to a passing entry in a summary article of all the evenings crime.

So why isn’t this act of brutality not being called terrorism?

Where is Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton?

Why is Obama silent?

Just wonderin…

    It’s always the children’s birthday parties where these ferals loose their minds.
    The children’s themed pizza parlor “Chuck E. Cheese” is like some kind of free-fire zone because of them.

    • Brutal. Why are the Democratic Party’s Slave Masters never held to account?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Because there is no money in it.
        Besides, it a lot harder to get your base all riled up with “thou shall not kill” vs. an existential threat based on a false narrative and a catchy hash-tag.

    • What a comprehensive list… of people who should be air-lifted to Syria.

    • It’s like they can’t control their anger or something.

    Blacks only get upset by white on black crime. They don’t care about any other kind because deep inside, they are racists.

    • mauser 98

      …those white racists

      • Dolezal is such a racist. But not as bad as the NY Times.

      White on black crime pays the race hustlers more.

    You think THIS is bad? I had to let go of our 2000 Ford Explorer on Saturday. Had over 450,000 K and had to have some transmission work done. Our mechanic told me it was time to let go. I had to break the news to my Wife who had given our truck a name, Maxie. Had him for over 15 years. Travelled all over the place, the three of us.

    So many memories. My wife was, well, really upset. We had a wake. Then our son came over, followed me to the place where our Maxie would repose and I said the final goodbye. It was so sad. When I got home it was like our dog died. Well, we don’t have a dog but I assume it would have been sad.

    Our garage now stands devoid of Maxie…My wife is in mourning

    I’m checking the new car places……

    • 26 deaths? Seems mighty low.

    “Detroit continues to have more children living in extreme poverty than any of the nation’s 50 largest cities”, according to a national report released in February of this year. – Karen Bouffard, The Detroit News

    “There’s no excuse, there’s not any excuse why no one is talking.” – Detroit Police Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt

    Then think about four HUNDRED people at a “child’s birthday party”.

    • At night…

        Always later at night, Blazer. Well past most bedtimes for children.

    Calling Al Sharpton.

    …Because there’s no political capital in highlighting black-on-black crime, or crime in Democrat controlled jurisdictions. Well, not for anybody that _matters_ … People who can think objectively about race and politics and crime don’t matter…not yet anyway.

    “…shots were fired around 8:30 PM at the basketball court”

    What?! I thought more basketball courts were the answer to black crime.
