article_landing_kyn_18121

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Wednesday morning presented a mountain of evidence to defend the actions of ICE agent Mitchell Quinn who fatally shot Terrance Kellom, 20, in late April.

Worthy, using a power point with photos and schematics of the house, went step by step through the investigation at a press conference, as if she were delivering a closing argument in a case, and said that the shooting was justified and no criminal charges would be filed against Quinn. Her presentation included lab results.

She said the lengthy investigation conducted by the Michigan State Police-Detroit Police Department homicide task force backed up Quinn’s version of what happened: That Kellom came at him with a claw hammer and wouldn’t retreat even after being warned to back down and being shot once. He was shot a total of four times.

She also indicated that the investigation showed that Kellom’s father lied to investigators and gave conflicting versions of the unfolding events.

Chicago — Miguel Cabrera is well-known for being a loyal teammate as well as interacting with fans.

Both traits were on display late in the Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, 10-8 Tigers’ victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Walking toward the dugout in between late innings, Cabrera spotted a young Tigers fan quietly holding a “Fire Ausmus” sign right beyond Detroit’s first-base dugout, and offered to buy the sign.

He bought it with a baseball.

Random Musings of A Teenage Girl: A Letter To Detroit From A National Youth Gathering Participant


Because I am a Detroit, and am proud to say it. I may no longer live in the city, infact I have live out of the city longerthen I lived in it, but I am Detroit….


images (2)Dear Detroit,
My name is Cassie and I’m from a small town in North Carolina, where our largest building is Wal-Mart. I have always wanted to experience life in a big city, and you did not disappoint, but rather exceeded my expectations. You see, I was expecting a city filled with broken dreams and shattered glass, a city devoid of life and hope. I expected a scene of desolation against the backdrop of a dead city.

Should have been life ….

DETROIT (WJBK) –
The local doctor who put hundreds of people through unnecessary cancer treatments to collect insurance money has been given a 45-year prison term.

Dr. Farid Fata’s unusual sentencing was a five-day process.

U.S. District Judge Paul Borman heard from experts who criticized how Fata treated patients. He’s also heard distressful stories from about two dozen patients. Witnesses were also called to rebut some of the unflattering testimony about Fata.

Greece Officially in Default; Misses $1.7 IMF Payment – The Pappas Post


Proof that welfare does not work. Greece was a true welfare/socialistic state, giving every conceivable benefit to its citizens, and when they finally figured out that they had not money to continue to do this, they did what any good welfare state would do, they asked for welfare from the world… And they got it… Shockingly (NOT!) they could not repay the “loan”…

Detroit, my home town, is another perfect example of this…. And soon, the United States will become a Greece, a welfare state seeking global welfare…

At 6:00pm Eastern Standard Time, Greece failed to make a $1.7 billion dollar payment to the IMF, placing the country officially in default.
The default, which Greece had warned would happen, is the first by an advanced economy in the fund’s seven-decade history, as well as the largest single overdue payment.

The default has put the new Athens government on a par with a small group of mostly conflict-ravaged debtors that have stiffed the IMF—a short list that includes Afghanistan’s Taliban and coup-stricken Haiti. Zimbabwe strongman Robert Mugabe was the last major default to the emergency lender, in 2001.

So Sad and sick

Detroit — A mother accused of killing two of her children and stuffing their bodies in a freezer pleaded guilty to their slayings in court Monday, detailing the gruesome details of their deaths.

Mitchelle Blair’s appearance in court Monday came after 36th District Judge Dana Hathaway adjourned a hearing Friday so she and lawyers for both sides could review results of an independent examination meant to determine if Blair was fit to stand trial. Blair, 36, was ultimately found competent and could be found criminally responsible in the case on Monday, Hathaway said.

Blair then pleaded guilty to premeditated murder and felony murder in her children’s deaths Monday. She had been charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of premeditated murder and one count of torture. Hathaway accepted the plea after hearing the details of the children’s deaths.

Monica Conyers, the former Detroit City Council member and wife of Rep. John Conyers, is back in the news.

This times she’s suing McDonald’s. No, it’s not because her fries weren’t hot enough or her coffee was too hot or they forgot to put the special sauce on a Big Mac.

Joel Kurth of the Detroit News reports she’s suing the fast food giant for $25,000 because on New Year’s Day she says she cut her finger on a chair at the outlet at Metro Airport. She was en route to D.C. to attend her husband’s swearing-in ceremony in Congress.

“Plaintiff sat down to eat at a table inside McDonald’s, and grabbed the side of the chair to adjust her seat and pull her chair under the table,” according to a suit filed Thursday in Wayne County Circuit Court, the News reported.

“While pulling herself under the table, Plaintiff felt a sharp pain in the ring finger of her right hand, screamed in pain and jumped out of the seat.”

The suit alleges that she’s lost full use of her hand.
