A Detroit criminal found out the hard way that the second amendment is a very real thing, losing his life after targeting a local truck driver with a concealed carry permit and willing to use it in self-defense.
After an attempted robbery, the truck driver shot and killed the suspect on Detroit’s rough east side, around 7 Mile and Kelly, according to Fox News.
Fox News continued:
Investigators say that person was taken to the hospital, where he later died. He allegedly was robbing the tow truck driver, who shot him.
The Detroit Police Department said the Wayne County prosecutor will review the investigation, but there was no indication that the tow truck driver would face charges because the incident appeared to be self-defense.
While little additional information has been released, Yahoo! News added that a witness to the event said he heard 6-8 shots in the vicinity of the shooting. From the sounds of it, the would-be attacker had a clip unloaded into him.
An additional update was provided by a local affiliate, which reported the truck driving was not working at the time, but rather had arranged to meet with the suspect in order to buy a car for parts. The deal was a front for a crime, and at that point the driver engaged in an act of self-defense.
The incident is just one of countless responses to unchecked crime in the corrupt, violence-laced cities. It is not a coincidence to note Detroit has been managed by Democrats for over half a century; Detroit has not had a Republican mayor since 1962.
As the Detroit News reported last year, the city held the ignominious title as one of the most violent cities in America.
Detroit in 2020 had a rate of 2,248.4 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, behind only Memphis, Tennessee, as the highest rate in the country among cities with more than 100,000 residents. St. Louis, Missouri, Little Rock, Arkansas, and South Bend, Indiana rounded out the top five. Lansing, Michigan was ranked No. 9.
That the Rust Belt state can count a second city in the top ten, Lansing, as one of the most violent of every major city in America, is equally astounding. This says nothing of other hollowed-out communities like Flint.
And, of course, rather than deal with its unabated crime stretching back decades, the failing city of Detroit is instead focused on scoring cheap wins through woke virtue signaling. The Daily Signal wrote less than a week ago that one of its most prestigious schools would be dropping the name of Dr. Ben Carson – a distinguished black man, for those that care about race – from its program.
The Daily Signal said:
The Detroit school board recently voted to remove world-renowned neurosurgeon and native son Dr. Ben Carson’s name from its Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine magnet school. The reason: Carson served in the Cabinet of President Donald Trump.
So crime gets out of hand, often at the hands of, and cost to, black lives, and the woke school system figures its best approach to handling the crisis is to erase any mention of blacks who escaped the tragedy and drudgery of inner-city life.
