ichigan State Police shoot man on Detroit’s east side

May 22nd, 2010

A Michigan State Police officer shot and wounded a man after a police chase on the city’s east side Friday night, Detroit Police Chief Warren Evans said.

More than 30 officers, including members of Detroit’s gang squad, and at least a dozen police vehicles converged on the scene of the shooting, where a white Ford Escape crashed into a large tree head-on in front of the house at 4404 St. Clair near East Canfield.

A state police cruiser’s right front fender appeared to have collided with the left rear of the SUV. The area was roped off by police tape as dozens of neighborhood onlookers watched the activity. The street was littered with medical debris from the emergency treatment.


A trooper was pursuing what Evans described as a reckless driver around 10:30 p.m.; the suspect’s SUV hit a tree in the residential neighborhood. Three males emerged from the vehicle, Evans said. One was shot by State Police and another later was arrested. The third person escaped on foot.

No details about the names and ages of the SUV occupants were available.

The wounded suspect was transported to an unspecified hospital after treatment by EMTs; Evans said the injury was not believed to be life-threatening.

Community leaders including Malik Shabazz and Horace Sheffield III, who will officiate today at the funeral of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley Jones, hurried to St. Clair Street when they heard of the incident. Sheffield said he feared unrest in such close proximity to the location of the child’s death — six blocks from the home where Aiyana was killed by a police bullet during a raid.

Bystanders said the police chase lasted a long time up and down residential streets, at high speeds. Some said State Police arrested a neighborhood leader who chastised troopers for laughing and joking while the wounded man still was on the scene receiving first aid. Police did not confirm that arrest.

The shooting incident will be investigated by the Michigan State Police and the DPD homicide squad’s special assignments section, which handles all shootings by police.

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
