Man shot dead, dozens arrested as protest in Detroit turns violent

Detroit One man was killed and dozens arrested as peaceful daytime protests in the city gave way to violence Friday night. Demonstrators displayed anger over police brutality in America, clashing with city police who fought back with tear gas.

Detroit police Chief James Craig confirmed shortly after midnight that a man was shot near a large gathering of protesters at Cadillac Square.

...

Craig said officers made more than 40 arrests and at least three-fourths were from outside the city. Some residents urged the agitators to leave, he said.

"It started out peacefully and the vast majority of protesters came here with the best intentions, and I applaud them for wanting to be heard," Craig said in a phone interview. "But this escalated by a small group."

...

The first several hours of the demonstration were peaceful, he said, until a "small faction" came in late and "began taunting officers."

"We know that the individuals from outside the city of Detroit who converged at the protest location don't represent this city," he said. "I'm just asking for all Detroiters to continue to support us. Let's peacefully protest."

1. Provocateurs do not want peaceful protests

MaGats love chaos, as does "their" president.

2. I would imagine that a response to the

shitheads showing up is to leave the scene and let them be the only ones there?

3. Police issue description of suspected Detroit protest shooter

Hope they find whomever is responsible. This was originally reported as a drive by, but now they are saying the shooter just walked up to a parked car and fired at the driver. No motive known
