Whats wrong with American blacks?
DETROIT (AP)— A suburban Detroit man was in critical condition Thursday with severe head injuries after a neighborhood mob beat and kicked him when he stopped to check on a 10-year-old boy who stepped from a curb into the path of his pickup.
The 54-year-old man, whose name was not released, was being treated at a Detroit hospital as police scoured the east side neighborhood where he was attacked Wednesday afternoon. The boy, David Harris, was expected to recover from his injuries, according to Desmond Key, who said he was the 10-year-old's uncle.
The driver — who lives just north of Detroit in Macomb County's Roseville — wasn't at fault in the accident, said Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody.
"A preliminary investigation shows the kid stepped off the curb in front of him," Woody said. "No way he could have stopped in time."
On Thursday, marked and unmarked police cruisers crisscrossed streets around Morang and Balfour where the accident occurred about 4:10 p.m. Wednesday.
No arrests were made in the beating, but Woody said the boy's father was taken into custody Thursday on an unrelated warrant.
"At this time, he is not a suspect" in the attack, Woody said.
Key, 21, said David and some friends were walking to a store from their homes when the boy was hit by the truck. One of the youths raced back to David's home and told the family about the accident.
"I heard that he ran out in the street," Key said. "When I showed up my nephew was on the ground screaming."
Meanwhile, the driver was getting pummeled in the driveway of a nearby gas station.
"The guy definitely was trying to fight back, but it was too many guys," Key said. "When he finally had enough of trying to fight back he just fell to the ground. When he fell to the ground they kicked him a couple of times and then they left him alone."
Key counted six or seven attackers.
"We don't know those people that did that to that guy. Our main focus is on David," he said. "We weren't cheering it on. We weren't rooting for it."

White Motorist beaten by mob still in critical condition

DETROIT — As Steve Utash lies in a Detroit hospital bed, with his brain swollen and a gash in his head, he appears to remember the brutal beating that a neighborhood mob inflicted days earlier.

“He wakes up and his arms start struggling and he says,‘Help me! Help me!” said Terry Emerick, a family friend.

Utash remained in critical condition Friday — two days after accidentally hitting a 10-year-old boy with his company pickup on Detroit’s east side and being pummeled by at least a half-dozen people after stopping to check on the child.

The mob left the 54-year-old tree trimmer from suburban Detroit on the pavement outside a gas station.

No arrests had been made Friday, and police officers continued to canvass the neighborhood looking for witnesses who can identify any suspects in the beating, Sgt. Michael Woody said.

A grainy, surveillance video from the gas station camera shows the boy, David Harris, with a group of friends as he steps from a curb into the truck’s path Wednesday afternoon. Woody said investigators don’t have video footage of the attack on Utash.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said Friday that Utash did “the right thing by stopping to check on the boy” and that anyone who can identify his attackers should step forward.

“This senseless vigilante style attack is not the essence of who we are as Detroiters and will not be tolerated,” Duggan said in a joint statement with City Council President Brenda Jones.

The boy is recovering in a hospital from injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

His uncle, Desmond Key, said Thursday that the family does not know any of the attackers. He said family members rushed to the scene after one of the boy’s friends ran home and told them about the accident. Key said he saw six to seven guys punching and kicking the pickup driver as he tried to fight back.

This is why white people are afraid to get out of their vehicles after an accident in the cullerd's hood, and they are willing to risk a hit and run charge in order to preserve their safety and well being. Deal with the cops at a safe distance.

Being in a colored section of town is not safe even if you are colored. Now if the white man took off and left the scene the blacks would say he was a killer and Al Sharpshiton would be making noise. .

Those idiots at the gas station/corner store are stupid creatures of habit. They will return to hanging out at the corner again within days.
There is supposedly a video of the beatdown. All you have to do is just match up the faces of those on video with those who have returned to loitering, then charge them.

They should all be sent to prison for a very long time.

This case is a prime example of why motorist should be allowed to drive to an area they feel safe to report an accident.
Seems like I can't drive thru Rochester without a couple of "people" walking out in front of me with a slow moving careless attitude.(sometimes with 3-4 little ones in tow)
In many areas of Rochester I would keep on driving while calling 911.
My attorneys can site hundreds of similar attacks in court if need be.
