DETROIT (Reuters) - A Detroit prosecutor who said on Facebook that people involved in Baltimore rioting should be shot has resigned, after her comments ignited fierce criticism, the prosecutor's office said on Friday.
Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Teana Walsh had posted comments about this week's unrest in Baltimore, which was sparked by the death of Freddie Gray after he was fatally injured in police custody, according to a screenshot of her page posted on MyFox Detroit.com.
She described "large swarms of people throwing bricks etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults" and then suggested using guns.
"Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion," Walsh posted.
The comment, which was criticized by local defense attorneys, has since been taken down from Facebook and Walsh's page is not accessible.

Why did he resign?
use rock salt.. stings like heck
We need to hire this guy in my city!! This is what America NEEDS. Can you imagine the cess pool of Detroit. They need to fence it off and air drop AR15s to these thugs!!
I heard those facebook and twitter thingies are forever. Humans are such, wonderful fallible creatures. Not the best at recognizing patterns, some of them, though.
Speaking the truth in America today is not a wise thing to do. It’s always the right thing, but hardly the wise thing anymore.
one can never have too many enemies these days, it seems..
I think that is a perfectly reasonable suggestion. You throw bricks at people and burn down buildings, you need to be shot.
The problem here is what, exactly? ;)
I believe the person in question is female.
I have thought that about the thugs wherever they are. When will people say enough is enough already?
As Orwell said, speaking the truth in a time of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.
Long live the revolution !
That would be raycess.
That would have stops things rather quickly.
She seem rational and reasonable to me.
To hell with that.
Up until the 60s, that was exactly what you got for rioting.
It’s what rioters deserve IMO.
Don’t want to get dead, stay at home in your home city.
Teana should be promoted instead of ousted.
Everywhere in the world, when rioters try to injure or kill police, the police are allowed to shoot back, except in Obama’s Marxist world.
Looks like Detroit isn’t going to make any real comeback with this type of pro-criminal thinking in its’ own criminal justice system.
