All the while claiming that crime is down and that they do not have enough Officers to patrol Detroit’s neighborhoods, Mayor Duggan and Chief Craig found enough officers to protect Neo-Nazis as they marched down Jefferson Avenue During the PRIDE festival.
I spoke with Council President Jones, Council President Pro-Tem Sheffield and Council Member Spivey and they confirmed that nobody pulled a permit for the march and Council was not notified of it in advance. Duggan and Criag obviously had advance knowledge of the march because they had the police out in force to protect the marchers. But protect them from who? The LGBTQ Community? Nope, the 80% of Detroit who would have dealt with them severely.
So process this if you will. The Mayor who is White and his Police Chief Knew about the Nazi march and did not inform the City Council or the public. So they protected white nationalists while they won’t protect their own 80% Black City. That is a horrible narrative.
