Detroit police

Such sad news out of Detroit today. Oh my, what a month for the department.

Just about a week after the department lost a member due to a shooting, the officers working one of the toughest jobs in the nation now face another crisis. According to the AP, an officer fired his gun during a home search for a homicide suspect, killing a 7-year-old girl.

The last week was one of intense community support for the department, and this is in a city that often doesn't get along with its police force. There was a funeral and then memorial service as well as the arrest and charging of the suspect, who killed one officer and wounded four others.

I wonder what the community's reaction will be. Will they be sick of the crime or angry with the police? What a sad story, a young girl dying this way.
