A store owner whose business was vandalized and looted by a black mob knows why it happened.
"This is the city of Detroit," the owner, whose identity was not revealed, said in a televised report about the recent situation.
A black mob had rampaged through his store, brazenly stealing items off the shelves, and leaving chaos behind.
It all started because a store clerk told an unruly customer that he had to leave the store. The customer reacted by trashing the store counter and banging violently on the bullet-proof glass that was the only protection for the hapless clerk as the store was overtaken by a rowdy group of black youths.
The gang proceeded to take all the items they could grab and one of the thugs even threw a brick through the store's window, as evidenced by the surveillance video that captured the action.
The owner called this latest incident of black mob violence "normal" and was happy enough that the damage wasn't too severe. The owner only talked to the local Fox affiliate, which was the first news outlet to break the story, on the condition that his face wouldn't be shown and that his name would be withheld. He didn't even want the location of the store reported, citing a fear that copycat attacks would follow.
Get the book that documents racial violence in America, with hundreds of episodes in more than 80 American cities since 2010, where groups of blacks are assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, shooting, stabbing and killing victims.
This isn't the first time an incident like this has happened in the Motor City. Back in October of 2012, WND reported that a black mob, numbering around 40 individuals, took over a convenience store for several hours as they looted and pillaged the place. Despite the gravity of the situation, the police didn't show up to the store until nine hours after the clerk had originally reported the rampage.
Due to the growing violence and the perception that law enforcement is doing nothing to stop it, vigilant citizens have banded together to take down crime when the police fail to show up.
An suspect in a rape case was severely beaten by residents of his community in response to a heavily delayed and sluggish police investigation that has so far done nothing to quell the rising tension in the neighborhood. An example of the slow pace for police investigations is the fact that the rape kit conducted right after the crime was alleged wasn't sent off to the Michigan State Police lab for examination until 19 days after the incident occurred.
Nearly a month after the alleged rape took place and with still no charges against the suspect, at least five assailants attacked the man, who is accused of raping a 15-year old girl with Down Syndrome, last Monday.
There has also been a rise in cases of justifiable homicide in Detroit as the city increasingly loses funding for essential public services and citizens are deciding take the law into their own hands.
But sometimes the citizens who try to stop crime become victims themselves. A Good Samaritan was shot Monday as he tried to halt the mugging of two women. He fortunately survived the shooting and is reported to be in stable condition.
