I'll be standing by the honest, god fearing, hard working people of Michigan, with my guns loaded, waiting on the low life, dope dealers like you to attempt something stupid.
If the Lee's would NOT OF GOTTEN INVOLVED with the officers (who were on a traffic stop, by the way), MAYBE no one would be dead.
Do the Lee's not take any RESPONSIBILITY for the events that took place that night?

The cops are the ones that got indicted, so maybe if they kicked ass and didn't murder anyone then nobody would of been in any trouble?

You give anyone too much power over another fellow life form; and they will abuse it; specially if they're a simpleton; which most cops are.

F'n troglodytes with no mind of their own; f'n willfully blind driveling sheeple walmartians.

Damn right and Ypsi has really become that much more of a downmarket, crime infested town in the years that have elapsed since this incident. A good friend of mine lives at Riley Ct., a fuckin, free-for-all just like any other apartment community in town. It was bad ten yrs ago when I would party there to get away from my ex and he and I were about the only two white faces there; Im so thankful to have that out of my system. Now the people who populated it being low-income, judgment-impaired\absent (crack) blacks, it doesnt surprise me that adherence to the DON'T SNITCH policy had won out over a shaky but resilient faith in our system of law enforcement. However, there were roving patrols of Wash Co. sheriffs along E. MI and someone was still calling in bc they would respond to other calls and not just the annual or semi-annual sweeps. As I hear it, a decade later, there's nothing. They haven't heatd from anything resembling authority there in nearly a year.
