That's sad, the guy stops to help the little kid he hit and the people beat him. If he would have kept going/hit and run, he would have been charged with it. Now he's fighting for his life in the hospital.

"We don't know those people that did that to that guy. Our main focus is on David," he said. "We weren't cheering it on. We weren't rooting for it."

But they werent stopping it either...sad :-(

Wow. I think I know what the elephant could be, but does it say that anywhere in the story? I can't believe he got attacked for trying to help.

I have not seen or heard it mentioned anywhere.

Hint, here's a picture of the beaten man, with his daughter:



I have yet to see a picture of the 2 that they arrested, but I suspect they look a little more like a majority of Detroiters.

Makes you wonder how fast would the racial makeup of that situation be showcased if the races were reversed? I imagine it'd be a national news hate crime right now.

Yep, that's exactly what I'm talking about. If the racial makeup was reversed, and it took place in some place like Howell it would be all about race. The media and typical commentators would be calling it a lynching and it would be all you'd hear about for weeks.

I work on a lot of properties on that street. Open businesses keep their doors locked at all times. Sometimes they won't even me in.

So far two teenagers were arrested in the beating. http://www.wxyz.com/news/region/detr...driver-beating

A nurse stepped in to stop the beating of the driver. Sad it was only one person out of many. http://www.wxyz.com/news/region/detr...s-getting-beat

I still can't figure out to whom the politicians were directing their message of remaining calm over the incident.

Not saying this is what it was, but there's a common "scheme" to rob people that involves a pedestrian being "hit"...not sure whether it happened here or not, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Reason number 1123245325234123424562134 to carry in the D

When does Obama speak about this to the nation and Holder begin to investigate? Oh wait...

This type of shit blow my mind. When its blacks doing the beating "which I have read it was in multiple, non mainstream articles" there is no mention of in in mainstream news media. If this was in Rochester, and it was a white kid, black driver, and white mob beating up the black driver it would be all over the national news, and all the reverends would be calling for all of the racist whites heads.
