Black Muslim DC sniper. Media ignored the terrorist motive.

Hubby says they put a drawing out of a man with non white features on a white background and called him dark skinned.

Whatever that means.

Truth is that it will be of little use.

Well if it were West Warren Ave I would agree. But that far west, who knows?

I'm sure most of you in the area are aware of this but be sure to warn anyone coming to your area for a visit.

"For example, one specific incident, the round went through the door and lodged in the passenger door,

A similar outcome happened to an elderly friend's daughter a few years ago at the intersection of Cadieux and Outer Drive on Detroit's east side.

She was coming home from work at about 11:30 p.m. and was stopped at the stop light there.

Two black guys started walking up to her car and when she saw that one of them had a handgun in his hand, she took off but not before he shot at her.

It went thru her open drivers side window, missing her head and lodged in the support panel between the front and back seat on the passenger side........It was an apparent attempted carjacking.

I bet it is a cop on orders from someone to start enough trouble for martial law orders.....

I hope you're kidding because that is one of the most ignorant comments I've ever read on this forum...

If not then you are the most paranoid active participant since Michael Rivero............

I was happy to see the state Attorney General on the news this morning refusing to use the word “sniper” because he equates it to someone with dedicated skill, worthy of respect. This is a criminal, period.

Sure. We all know clean shaven white guys never shoot at other people. I can’t think of one single instance of a clean shaven white guy even trying to kill someone else.

Just never happens. No siree.

The race of those who have been shot at would be helpful even if non-PC.

Not in this case since it was random shootings from one vehicle, (late model mustang) at other passing vehicles. Shooter would have no knowledge of who was in the target vehicles.........

RANDOM SHOOTINGS............

Not likely since only teenage thugs use those as alibis..........

Heads-up folks for a “dark-color” Chevy or Ford.

One witness reported seeing a clean-shaven white man in his thirties, according to MyFoxDetroit.com

Forties.

And I promise I will never do it again.

Until next time.

This worries me - my daughter lives in Livingston county and my nephew will be driving through that area on his way from West Michigan back to Maryland. I hope they catch this guy REAL soon!

Interesting though that a spate of “shootings” is all over the national drive by news right after Obama broaches his support for reinstating an assault weapons ban.
The drive-by’s ignore stories of nearly the same amount of shootings on a daily basis in Obama’s home town though.

Meanwhile, Obama got a homeland security briefing on the shooting in Wisconsin that appears to have been a domestic dispute.

From the FOX report:
The shootings have been reported in Wixom, Commerce Township and areas west along I-96.

“This, at first blush, looks like somebody that's randomly shooting at people in cars,” said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard. “Fortunately, no person has been hit, but there has been some very, very close calls.”

The sheriff said police have now formed a task force to hunt down the shooter before someone is injured or killed.

I bet it's a white dude. There's shots in the Webberville area and in Livingston County. Anyone familiar with those areas knows that there aren't many black dudes there.

It wouldn't surprise me though if the shooter eventually gets return fire from a CPL holder.

Time to grow out my beard again since I'm 10 miles from I-96. Wasn't me. I don't drive a Mustang or Cavalier.

The DC killers were not only identified as being darker skinned, but their exact car was identified when they shot that poor woman at the mall....

but no, they still were looking for the whitey loner crazy right winger guy in the white van....

the cops will get us killed by their political correctness...

Michael Rivero...now there's a name from the past....I did enjoy him.....him and his "barking dogs" theories...especially about TWA800...

who knows....maybe everything he said is really true......I mean, who could have imagined that a skinny sort of black guy with absolutely NO HISTORY without a legit BC to show, with no major work exp or military service who cavorted with communists and racists would have been electd prez with a good chance to get reelected by the sheeple????(God please NO!)

...intersection of Cadieux and Outer Drive on Detroit's east side.

My grandparents used to live less than a block from there.
These latest shootings are so close to the Twelve Oaks Mall area which is incredibly busy. I drive up to the mall occasionally, but have rarely ventured north and west of there. Scary!!!
