In recent months more Detroit homeowners have taken matters into their own hands, shooting suspected intruders on-site and, in some cases, killing them.
For example, three cases of homeowners shooting suspected intruders have been reported in the past five weeks.
In early March, a 17-year-old was fatally shot outside a home on Penrod Street. On March 25, a homeowner with a valid concealed weapons license fatally shot two suspected intruders at his home on Dexter. Earlier this week a homeowner shot two suspected intruders, killing a 15-year-old.
In those cases, the homeowners are not facing charges.
Ron Scott of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality believes in self defense but says these “vigilantees” have gone too far.
“Certainly people have a right to defend themselves in their home but they do not have a right to make it a free-fire zone, and the chief, or his spokesperson, should never put that in the minds of people. We must operate not on the basis of fear but on the basis of understanding and how we as a community can come together to stop the violence,” he says.
This idiot really ought to read the definition of vigilante is. And what the heck he means by “free-fire zones” is beyond me. Basically he is demonizing anyone who uses deadly force to defend their lives as lawless killers. And he can flap his gums about “fear” and “understanding” all day long, but the only people responsible for these shootings are the thugs who decided they were entitled to break in people’s homes and threaten their lives.
Here is more about Ron Scott that explains his pro-criminal bias. From his bio at Huff PO
Ron Scott was a member of the Detroit Chapter of the Black Panther Party and has been actively involved on the ground level here in Detroit and across the nation over 40 years fighting for the human rights of people of color. He is a member of the Boggs Center Board, an active member of Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality, a Detroit Community organizer/activist and co-host a radio show here in Detroit.
At the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality website there are some links to some interesting sites, including one to “Free Mumia” a heinous cop killer who the far Left has embraced. You can read them all here Lots of the links are old and no longer work, and the site itself was last updated in 2012. Maybe Scott is just searching for some publicity so he can get back in the race pimping game?
