Detroit Police Car Drives Through Crowd of BLM Protesters [VIDEO]

A patrol car was trying to redirect protesters down Dix Road and away from the nearby high traffic highway but the protesters refused to listen to the police and began swarming the car. They blocked the windshield with a sign and several protesters started climbing all over the vehicle.

Then, the back glass was broken out and the officers were afraid that they were going to get shot and they drove the car through the suddenly violent protesters. It is claimed that they “hit” ten of the protesters although none sustained serious injury. Their car never topped 25 MPH.

His description does not jive with what I saw on the video.  Peaceful protesters don’t break out the back glass of a car. They don’t surround and crawl on the car. The officers were just trying to make sure they would be going home to their families that night. The officers who remain on duty have not been named.

Excerpt via The Detroit News:

Police Chief James Craig said the officer who drove a police vehicle through a crowd of protesters Sunday night did so because the officer thought “they were being fired upon.”…

…The protest started out peacefully with about 350 people in Southwest Detroit calling for immigrant rights and an end to police brutality coming together. However, around 9:30 p.m., a police SUV tried to re-direct the march toward Dix Road and away from Vernor Highway, to avoid high amounts of traffic.

Craig said the protesters did not want to follow the direction of the police, and 20 to 30 of them began surrounding the SUV.

The officer slowly tried moving the vehicle in an effort to disperse the crowd around them. When the officer heard the shattering of the rear window, the officer drove off going 25 miles per hour, Craig said. The video shows people on the hood of the SUV and falling to the ground as the officer drove off.

No one was seriously injured, Craig said…

…A video was shown at the press conference of another police SUV being rushed as loud banging can be heard as protesters banged on a second police vehicle.

Craig said a woman blocked the second police vehicle with her motorized bike, and at one point, ran into the driver’s side of the SUV…

    • Agreed. Really no more mr nice guy should be the attitude. Enough is enough. These children weren’t disciplined when they were young, so now they must enjoy being disciplined by life. Either way, lessons will be learned. And if not, you just continue to suffer.

      • Its impossible to fight fire with fire…. being a police officer they sign up to protect reassure and serve the public. No one says being a law enforcement officer was easy… no no more Mr nice guy means more violence and it not wise for the law to be fighting against the people its time for both parties to comply the people and the state… what are these people protesting for? Can the president and those in power meet their demands???? It time for you people to stop behaving ignorant and open your eyes justice is not only for those in blue, those in power, white its for everyone…

  2. Seriously! You all were blocking their way..with the amount of police that have been by you fools, and you expect them to just sit there while you all escalate? And then you are appalled and angered when they decide to get the hell out? What’s wrong with you people? You all need a good old fashioned whipping!

  3. The phrase Black Lives Matter suggest racial superiority. It excludes the importance of anybody else’s life”. That is Racism defined. Sheriff David Clarke

  4. they were not protesting peacefully, once you block the roads, highways, these protesters have committed the crime. they want to protest peacefully, stand on the side of the road, no in the middle of the road where cars drive by,

  5. Its impossible to fight fire with fire…. being a police officer they sign up to protect reassure and serve the public. No one says being a law enforcement officer was easy… no no more Mr nice guy means more violence and it not wise for the law to be fighting against the people its time for both parties to comply the people and the state… what are these people protesting for?
