Detroit Sees Increase in Self-Defense Shootings and Decrease in Criminal Homicides

Detroit’s new police chief made headlines when he asserted his support for the 2nd Amendment. He argued that there are many cases where citizens don’t have time to call 911 and wait for a cop to show up; that in those cases, those citizens need to be armed for their own protection and make those split-second decisions themselves. He warned violent criminals to watch out for residents who have had all they can take.

Already it appears that this police chief is seeing the fruit of his advice to residents and warnings to would-be criminals. The New American reported on one recent self-defense case in Detroit:

On Tuesday morning, March 25, two young men trying to break into a home on Detroit’s west side woke the homeowner, who went outside to investigate. The confrontation led to a fight, during which the homeowner drew his sidearm in self-defense and killed both attackers. This brings to 10 the number of fatal self-defense shootings in Detroit so far this year, which could certainly exceed the total of 25 recorded in the city for 2012, the latest year for which data are available.

    Wow, more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens means lower crime. Who would have thought it possible.

  2. Thomas says:

    DEMONCRATS hates to see criminals killed as that’s a vote lost, oh me bad, the dead can still vote there.

  3. Grampa says:

    I was born and raised in this city. The people deserve better, they are now seeing what only one man can do for this city. I think they now realize that because a man is black it does not mean they care for you. You now have a mayor and police chief that will stand with the people and rebuild the city. What have you to lose, stand behind them.

    Need to push for Detroit blacks to increase their abortion rates…think of the results in a few years: less crime, rape, fewer welfare brats, lower welfare…all good. Abortion…it’s for the children!

  5. Ray Burke says:

    And so it will always be !!! A legally armed citizen is his/her own “do it yourself” cop !!!
