Of course it's sad when any young person loses his/her life. However, we don't know all the facts in this situation, so could there and why would there be an arrest? It seems to me that Renisha left the seen of an accident, which is against the law. Not only was it an accident, but she hit a parked car, why? The man who owned that car called 911 and if she wanted help, then she could have stayed there and received it as the EMS was called too. Per one of the 911 calls made, the person said it seemed Renisha was intoxicated and this could make sense as she did hit a "Parked" car and then left the scene, most likely in hope as to not get arrested for drinking and driving which caused the accident. Note, I'm just saying this is a good possibility. Also, her family was not there, so how can they say what she did or didn't do. They also started out with saying she was shot in the back of the head, this isn't true, she was shot in the face. Also, they want to keep stressing "An unarmed girl" how would this man who awoke from his sleep at 4 am in the morn. know she was unarmed? There has been many cases where robbers/murderers send a female up to the door while others hide on the side or in a bush. The 1st 911 call was made at 1a.m. and she got to this house at 4ish a.m.??? There are many stores and business on Warren Ave. she could have went into for help, but I don't think she wanted the police's help and this is why she left the scene. If she was intoxicated, then there's a good chance she was pounding on this mans doors, maybe even screaming and acting irrational. We just don't know. Again, it is all very sad, but you do have to wait for the facts to come out.

Actually sami,the rational scenario u have given is very possible and makes sense. Now if investigators can piece things together.

Thanks, Kevin, ITA now if investigators can piece together the events that occurred. I don't believe this had anything to do with race. This man was awoken at 4 a.m. and he went to the door with his gun not knowing the race of the person behind that door. Also, I don't know why the family is saying this is a rich, all white city. This is an ordinary, diverse city. It borders, Dearborn, Detroit, Garden City, Inkster and Redford.

Also, this was not her first accident. She had totaled two previous vehicles before the age of 19.(source:Free Press article)
The home in Dearborn Heights was about a mile away from the first accident they said. A drunk doesn't walk too fast or straight. There would be reason to flee and find non-police help.

This is purely speculation on my part, but white people are more likely to help a black beating on the door than a black so perhaps she figured the odds were better in Dearborn. This is a mixed neighborhood.

As Cornelius said, convene in a month.

Pete, yea, I read about her prior accidents. Yep, totaled two other cars. Maybe it's bad luck or maybe she has a problem. I dunno, but what I do know is it's not rational to slam into a parked car, not to mention @ 1 a.m. in the morn. on a fri. ngt./Sat. morn...hmmm? It is not rational to leave the scene of an accident. It is not rational to then walk around for 3ish hrs. while passing up bars, gas stations, etc. just to end up pounding on someone's door at 4 a.m. for help.

Also, I don't know why the family is insisting the homeowners name be released. What does it matter, if her's not charged? It's bad enough the media disclosed him home addy and they're protesting outside him home as well as the PO Dept. There isn't going to be arrest just cuz some demand it. There has o be a full investigation. There was suspicious activity going on that ngt. before this tragedy even occurred and it didn't have to do with the homeowner as he was in his own home sleeping. This a no win situation all the way around. There is a young woman who has lost her life and her family has lost a loved one and there is also a man who's life will never be the same. They can bring in racist Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton to line their pockets and get their 5 min. of fame all they want, but it's not going to change anything. They're just gonna stir up racial tension when I don't believe there was any racial profiling whatsoever going on. What a shame.

You are absolutely right. Someone that (possibly) drunk? And possibly a concussion on top of it? You have no idea how they might act on someone's front porch. She might of thought she was at her own home and was trying to get in this man's house instead. A lot of people also black out when they drink too much. The black community has already made up their mind that he's guilty of murder. Nobody is going to convince them of anything different. This man will have to move far away. He will never have the same life he had before this happened. Mr. Sharpton is already fueling the flames. Just check out his nonsense on The Huffington Post. It's what he does best. Race baiting.

Someone, anyone white needs to be lynched to satisfy the Africans. Only then will this be made right. Lynch someone White and hurry.

ITA the black community already found him guilty when they didn't have any of the facts. They did interviews saying she was shot in the back of the head and this is not true, she was shot in the face. They also say she was looking for help, then why didn't she stay at the scene of the accident when I'm sure those calling LE told her they and the EMS was on their way? I'm sure the man who's car she slammed into had to be overjoyed with the fact that instead of exchanging insurance info. & waiting for the PO she just took off. It's not like he could have stopped her or he would have been charged. This is her 3rd automobile accident and she totaled the 1st two cars. You can't get your license until you're 16 yrs. old so the longest she's had her license is only three yrs. and that's assuming she did get it at 16 and not 17. Sharpton, Jackson and all of them can protest, riot, and kick and scream like two yr olds all they want, but a man isn't going to just be arrested, because that's what they demand.

Just saw a pic of her car and it also looks totaled to me. So she didn't just side swipe a parked car, she slammed right into it at a high speed. Per the news It's also said that there was alcohol in her system.

Its the murder capital, filled with psycos on firewater, 247. The homeowner sits in the middle of it.
The jooTV media really are trying to turn this into a 'justice for treyvon' gun grab.

Did her boyfien run, after she started to chimpout on the homeowner, for not letting them do a home invasion for crack money?

The jooTV ugly beast kabal, is really trying to railroad this homeowner like hissing snakes from hell.

I dunno why the media released this mans addy, race and even said he lives there alone. This man will never be able to live there again. When they find him murdered, I hope the family goes after the media. Sharpton is only there to stir up racial tension. The man didn't know the race of the person when he woke up, grabbed his gun and went to his door after hearing someone trying to get in at 4 a.m. in the morning. The family did interviews saying the victim was shot in the back of the head, this is not true. They also said the homeowner didn't call 911 after, this is not true. Also, if one was shot in the face, then how can they really say it wasn't at close range do to no powder being on the face when I'm sure there wasn't much left of the face. I dunno, but if it was Wayne County who did this autopsy, then I know they have been in the news and under investigation many times in the past. It's a sad tragedy all the way around, but you can't just arrest and charge a person without all facts and evidence, and because others demand it.

I know why they released the information on the homeowner. Because they want to turn this into the next George Zimmerman trial. It keeps them in business. They could care less who they hurt or how much they stir up racial tensions even more than they already are. They love to start trouble and never have to apologize if their wrong.

48 Hours, yep IA, I sure don't see anyone protesting outside any of the houses of the suspects in the two dozen or so shootings of those in Detroit. They sure aren't demanding arrest or protesting outside any of the Detroit PO stations either. It's really ashame when you are called racist and you are tried and convicted without not only a trial, but any true facts all cuz you're white. Since these ppl can throw out unsubstantiated allegations, I'm gonna throw out a theory. She may have suffered a head injury, but this doesn't explain why she rammed into a parked car in the first place. It looks like her car is totaled and she already totaled two other cars in the 3 yrs. she's had her license. Per some texts it says she had alcohol in her system and I believe she was drunk and maybe even on drugs as well. This would explain why she left the scene of the accident. If she needed help, the she would have stayed, but she didn't want help or at least not from the PO. I don't know what she did walking around for 3ish hrs., but I do know she passed up many open business where she could have gotten help if she wanted it. I believe she wanted to go home and run away from this incident and she believed this was her home. Who knows what she did and said to try and get into her home, but I can see one being very irrational when they can get in, especially in her condition and under the circumstances. Who even knows if she was confronting this homeowner and asking him why he was in her home? Who knows how she acted or what transpired.
