Add this to the list of reasons Detroit is in shambles.
On June 6, Fox 2 News reported that an FBI agent almost shot a Detroit cop at a gas station while filling up. The situation occurred after officers decided it would be a good idea to simulate a purse snatching and invite a TV crew to film Detroiters’ reactions.
But, believe me when I say this, Fox 2’s Charlie LeDuff tells the story better than I can write it:
Two takeaways: 1) Good thing there were no concealed carriers around. And 2) Why the hell doesn’t every cable news station have a few reporters like LeDuff on staff?
