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?
