With absolutely nothing better to do these days, Detroit’s City Council members unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday supporting the Department of Justice’s civil rights investigation into George Zimmerman.
Apparently, these bored-to-tears council members with nothing to do and no money to run their bankrupt city needed to find an issue –even one in another state – to insert themselves in, and decided a federal investigation into whether Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights was the way to go.
Thankfully, Councilman Kenneth Cockrel, Jr. reminded his colleagues of the pretty horrific black-on-black crime rate right there in its own backyard.
“We need to have that same level of outrage with respect to the black-on-black crime that takes place in our community,” Cockrel said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “How many people were shot — maybe even shot and killed this past weekend in the city — mostly likely by folks who look just like them?”
This is so ludicrous there is nothing more to say except, rest in peace, Detroit.
