What is Gov Whitmer's involvement regarding the protests in Detroit and other cities?

I haven't seen or heard much of anything from her about it.

I'm sure she has been engaged, just haven't seen anything reported in the Detroit newspapers.

2 suspects in Flint dollar store slaying caught

"Two men sought in the fatal shooting of a Flint dollar store security guard have been arrested, Genesee County authorities said Friday evening.

During a news conference, county Prosecutor David Leyton said Larry Teague, 44, was arrested Thursday near a motel in Houston, and Ramonyea Bishop, 23, was taken into custody Friday afternoon at an apartment in Bay City.

Both men, along with Sharmel Teague, Teague's wife and Bishop's mother, are charged with first-degree murder and other crimes in the May 1 shooting of Calvin Munerlyn, 43, at the Family Dollar store at 877 E. Fifth Ave. Munerlyn was shot after he told the daughter of Sharmel Teague that she couldn't enter the store without a protective mask, as required by executive orders designed to combat the spread of COVID-19. Then he denied service to Teague, who was wearing a mask, when she allegedly began yelling at him. Teague, 45, then contacted her husband and son, who went to the store and killed Munerlyn, prosecutors allege.

Leyton said two other people were arrested in Houston and charged with helping Teague flee to Texas and elude police: Laura Ann Mitchell, 44, and Terrence Devon Findley, 43. According to the prosecutor, Mitchell and Findley rented a car in Michigan, drove Teague to Texas, bought him clothing at a WalMart and rented him a motel room. Leyton said he charged both with obstruction of justice, harboring a felon, and accessory after the fact to a felony, plus a count of lying to a police officer against Mitchell.

The district attorney of Harris County, Texas, has charged both with hindering apprehension of a murder suspect, Leyton said.

In addition, Bishop’s sister Brya Shatonia Bishop, 24, has been charged with tampering with evidence, lying to police and being an accessory to a felony after the fact. Authorities allege she hampered police efforts to find her brother and Larry Teague."


Sister of suspect in fatal shooting of Flint dollar store guard charged

"The sister of one of the suspects wanted in last week's fatal shooting of a Flint dollar store security guard was charged Thursday with three felonies, authorities said.

Brya Shatonia Bishop, 24, has been charged with tampering with evidence, lying to police and being an accessory to a felony after the fact, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said.

He said Bishop is in police custody and is awaiting arraignment on the charges. Tampering with evidence is a 10-year felony, lying to police is a 4-year felony and being an accessory after the fact is a 5-year felony. Leyton said Bishop is accused of interfering with the police's ongoing efforts to arrest Ramonyea Bishop, 23, and Larry Teague, 44, the two men accused in the Friday slaying of the security guard. Brya and Ramonyea Bishop are siblings.

"Brya Bishops' attempts to shield family members will not be tolerated and we will likewise hold anyone else involved in offering shelter and assistance to Larry Teague or Ramonyea Bishop accountable under the law," Leyton said in a statement. Both Ramonyea Bishop and Teague remain at large. The prosecutor said police continue to search for the two men."
