I see things haven't changed in Detroit since I left there almost 20 years ago now.

This is what causes people to do a hit-and-run, like that guy and his family in their van got caught in traffic with that motorcycle "flash mob" deal last year, or what that truck driver in the Rodney King riots should have done.

Angry mobs can be anywhere, but poor segregated communities have always been risky to pass through. So now-a-days, in addition to not walking or riding a bicycle through a bad neighborhood, you don't dare drive through one either, at least not without a motorcade of your own armed, red-neck homies behind you.

ETA: I know Morang Dr on the "East Side", it runs east-west just south of 7 Mile Rd. They don't give an intersection in the news articles, but it was probably between Kelly and I-94 as it gets better to the east and north, and worse to the south. Over-all when I knew that neighborhood, it was better than most in Detroit, but growing up as an East Side suburbanite, I considered those kids from Denby High School to be real tough customers. It is probably worse in that area now 20 + years later.

It is more how the media does it. They always play the race card.

And be honest... would you move to Detroit?

Would I move there? Not much point in exchanging one bad place for another.

LOL point taken. But another point still stand... if it was reversed the media would be all over this.

If you scour the kid's social media you can probably convince yourself that he was a drug dealer as well.

Really? I didn't say anything bad about the kid, just questioned why he wouldn't use a crosswalk when crossing a busy road during rush hour. Forget the fact that it is the law, just makes sense in a safety kinda way.

Seriously, had you're own kid been hit by a car wouldn't you feel like throwing punches?

Not if it was an accident. You sound like a violent person. Punching is always a solution...

I can understand as a parent that if my kid gets hit by a car yes I would be very angry. In my neighborhood there are cars that go way to fast & I've yelled at these cars as they have drove by. I have a 3 and 6 year old and for the most part my 6 year old knows better but my 3 year old is still learning. As a parent it's my responsibility to keep an eye on him and honestly it only takes 5 seconds to lose track of him.

This 11 year old should know how to cross the street. If the man was driving like a crazed maniac then he would deserve it but it doesn't appear that way.

Not sure how much race played into this. I wasn't there.
I do believe that these people were opportunists scum using this terrible accident as an excuse to beat and rob the poor guy. They took his wallet and a bag out of his vehicle that had everything he owned in it.

That poor boy just made a bad decision to cross the road like that, and the poor driver was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I seriously believe that if the driver had been black, or any other race, the mob would have done the same thing. They saw an opportunity to pounce on a weaker victim and use it to their advantage. Not saying that there is no racism in the world because there is no doubt there is, but this was nothing but thugs doing what thugs do.

Moving away from that 7th circle of hell was the best decision I've ever made. Roving packs of dirtballs are par for the course, opportunistic vultures feeding on distracted prey is standard operating procedure for the walking dead that reside there.

Anyone else think " Justice for Trayvon" mindset didn't come into play has their head buried in the sand. Its a shame to see the big cities turning into these post-apocalyptic playgrounds. Take a drive down Mack Avenue and let the socially engineered future amaze you in all its glory, I dare you.

You guys have no idea, we had an incident like this a couple years ago, it never made the news, a lot happens around here that never makes the news.

Time and time again these horrible stories get swep under the rug not to expose an extremely out of balace politically correct agenda.

Like this one in May of 2012

"[ There’s outrage in Norfolk, Va., today after a white couple was attacked by dozens of black teenagers, and the local newspaper did not report on the incident for two weeks, despite the victims being reporters for the paper"].

Its only going to get worse if the insecurities of the people in power hide them out of fear and their own racism...

Impetuous violent racism by any other name, would smell as foul.

I guess I just find describing a 10 year old kid who got run down as a "criminal" a bit odd. Obviously he was probably doing something pretty stupid, but hey - he's ten.

I don't think it's social engineering, more a case of stuffing all the poor people in one place and letting them rot.

I need to take a lesson or two from you in effective speech.

This trend in violent racial behavior is going to end very badly. When it does, the MSM is going to play a major role. They haven't had a chance to throw gas on a fire in quite some time. Almost feels like they've been hoarding if you ask me.

One woman stepped in to help Steven Utash. Nurse Debra Hughes intervened and stopped the attack: “He was already down, bleeding from the mouth and the nose – so there wasn’t nothing else they could do to him but kill him,” she said. “Then EMS came and I kept him calm, I kept his hands down and everything so he could be comfortable,” said Hughes. “He had the biggest gash on his head I ever seen – he was bleeding from the mouth and he was unconscious when I first got there … being a registered nurse, I thought I could go out and help him.”

I'd take that with a pinch of salt. every single dweeb was scouring the internet then for stories of black people attacking whites that

1 weren't being reported, thus showing Trayvon Martin was guilty or something, because, er, the media

2 were evidence of the coming race war that black people were about to engulf the US in

Bothe were total fantasies.

This incident as sad as it is presents a great opportunity for Obama to show real leadership and work towards conciliation between blacks and whites in America. But instead of pointing out the obvious wrongs of the situation his silence on the issue will be taken as tacit approval instead. Obama must desperately hate his white half as he uses every flimsy excuse he can to identify with his black half as if he could somehow distance himself from his own genetic makeup.

We need a real leader in the White House, not someone who thinks they can right the wrongs of the distant past while struggling with a personality complex. The problems of the present demand serious attention not the self-righteous imaginings of a wannabe messiah of social injustices (for selected races and religions only - not all minorities need apply).

Do what's right for the WHOLE COUNTRY, not just those you identify with and count on for political support.
That's what a real President would do.

Young black youth with no real moral structure will continue to bring further generations of the same thing.

Im telling it like it is , I wouldn't respond with my truth in this matter unless I expeirenced it myself.....
