Right on

DETROIT (WJBK) – An internal investigation has been launched at the Detroit Police Department after two different precincts got into a turf war as they converged on an east side neighborhood.

Neighbors who live on Andover on Detroit’s east side will be the first to tell you this area is known for constant drug activity.

    2 options here… option #1 is the departments are eagerly fighting crime and managed to run into one another. Option #2 is that the departments are defending their own graft territories like a gang would… one decided to take a bite out of a rival gang’s territory, and here we are.
    I’d like to believe #1, but it is possibly #2.

    About fifteen years ago my partner and I were rehabbing a two flat we had bought on the west side of Chicago. There was a drive by drug dealer working on the corner, two doors down. I went to the local police station and notified the desk sergeant. She laughed at me and informed me there were two hundred drive by dealers in that district. Nothing was done.

    Later I figured; Two hundred dealers X $100 per week = $20,000 X 52 weeks = $1,040,000 per year. And that’s just in one district.

    Sometimes we’d see the cops chasing these guys. I always figured those must be the ones who wouldn’t pay.

    Let’s be generous and figure they happened to bump into each other. I have a friend who spent a lot of his time under cover. He once happened to be in the car with a bunch of baddies when it was stopped by police in another department. The police apparently got fairly excited and unpleasant when they found a .45 in the small of his back. Eventually, he was allowed to make a telephone call that got him sprung from durance vile. His attitude was, “it happens.” Far worse, and close to terminal, was when he was recognized by a bad guy when working a case.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
