But your brother's thought he had such talent. I should meet him since I was thinking about running. The mayor because that's why I was mean wouldn't with Neil and among other things, I was listening to Neil's recommendation on a number of things, and so I met.

As well. But I What? What made you recommend him so highly? How did you as as a lawman? What was so special about Benny Napoleon. I was in charge of the sex crime unit and I met Betty because he played basketball. I was also coaching The team and I was really impressed by this young man. Although he was, I think, 18 years old time. And impressed by the way he handled himself his attention to detail and he was smart. And I brought him to work for me when I was in charge of the gang squad and was moved and I said that, you know, there's nothing is gonna happen with you. You You should probably further your education. That's what I'm doing it You should do it, I think was surely they're actually that Betty Wooden signed up when he got his undergraduate greeting. I said, Let's we want some more, and he got his law degree. What happened was just admirable. But then I knew that when we may, Archer asked me about 30 days. That's exactly what I said. You know, we've got to meet this guy, Benny. Hey, smart. He's really dedicated to the city so many things that he wants to do that. He could be an asset to you and to the city of Detroit. Well, he certainly proved to be that way as police chief on under your administration. Mayor Archer. What would you say was the most significant thing that Benny Napoleon brought to that job? He brought the Influence in the education. Uh bye. The person who served as my chief of police Ike McKinnon. I talked. I taught him a lot. Gave him a lot of room to learn and to make recommendations. Ike was a great listener from the men and women who work for him. Because that's how he evaluated what things need to be done, how he came to me and said, Look, we ought to do this or do I confront this problem in sector and I listened. And not everybody listens. Mentioned. Um people love to talk and Tell you what they know. But as I mentioned too many people before Don't learn anything. When I talk will give a speech.

There are 91 days left in the year Make each and every day count each day is a gift. This isn't good any day and certainly a bad way to start a month off, But we've had a shooting out on the expressway. Best knowledge, I have Ah, Mere Murat's sweats by 9 94. But we're going to get Maurin Formacion. Better information from Lieutenant Mike Shaw of the Michigan State Police who joins us right now. Good morning, Lieutenant Shaw. Mike Good morning at the way to start a new month. It's not so about 2 45 were contacted by the Detroit police Department of an individual that was at their fifth Precinct to stated that his vehicle was shot at westbound 90 for years. Chalmers We went out to the scene currently had the freeway close. We have our canines out there, and troopers walking out put trying to Confirm this story and figure out where to go with our investigation. Sometimes people aren't quite sure where they are on the freeways. So we end up having the clothes more of it, or we find out later on that. This didn't happen. That freeway daughter actually happened somewhere in the city itself, and then they get confused on where they are maybe aren't so truthful about their location when the incident occurred. There's a key that that truthfulness is key, because no shooting is good, but a random shooting is far worse than a shooting between rivals or people that had business that went bad or any number of dating their girlfriend. I mean, whatever the personal reason is Frankly, if we're looking for anything good, it's good to hear. When it's something where the people know each other. It's really, really bad to hear that. It's truly a random shooting. And you don't know that yet, do you? So, um, other shootings that we've had, and I think this is in its early so you can't quote me directly. I think we're up to 18 on the freeways since June 15th. However, none of them are random. They're either a gang hit or something went wrong with ah business Transaction of illegal business transaction. Ah, majority of them were road rage incident where somebody was upset about the other person's driving, decided to settle it with a gun. Others have been, you know, problems. The escalating receive that in society quite often with everything that we're talking about from, you know, talking about, you know, people just not getting along like they should be anymore. Being able to walk away from situation, So that's a majority or almost all of them that we've had so far, Not one has been random. There's always been something to it. That brought those folks together. And and his foolish is it sounds. That's the silver lining it. Frankly, that's the silver lining in this horrible story. And it is eyes horrible guesses. It does sound No, we usually end up at the end of the investigation, knowing what happened and why. And You know who's responsible, and it's not random type. Somebody just shooting at cars on the freeway. Those air pretty pretty rare. Yeah, thank goodness for that. So what? I've been looking at monitors and seeing long lives of backed up traffic. What's the latest out there? Lieutenant Mike Shaw, So we're looking at traffic backup for probably at least three or four miles. Unfortunately, nobody listened. Tio radio stations or the traffic reports are our Twitter pages and Unfortunately, other people only know one way to get to work and back so they end up getting stuck in the traffic jams. They're trying to get the traffic out of there. But until we actually locate this scene of actually where it occurred, that's our important goal right now. So we're telling everybody just stay off 90 for take another route to work today and No, we'll get it open. Assumes we can 94 westbound closed. We've heard Meraz. We've heard Chalmers.

HARD TO DETROIT history. I guess a little bit. Drug dealer. You really want to know what your comcast is maybe. Be An informant. You really needs to know what could fuck it happen the ATHOL. Yeah, well, let's let's keep in mind I mean so they the Baxter there is so he start. He turned informant fourteen for the. to protect his dad, who is in some deep shit? And then when and That kind of settled down when he was seventeen, he got busted moving some weight of cocaine. and that was right at the height of the whole war on drugs yet idiotic. Hayward throwing the book at everybody in trying to pretend that you know this is a good thing and so basically. They put him under the jail. Right, well, amy. When was it that he was arrested? Nineteen eighty-seven. Seventeen. And he was arrested for possession of seventeen point six pounds of cocaine, the Holy Fuck, yeah, so that's roughly words according to Google and EIMI uncast drunk bath. Out there.

While I didn't really get into all that because we knew what his dad did to be an informant or no I just know that he was an informant for the Detroit Police Department by the time white boy. Rick was the age of fourteen. So either way. I also hit to Google his name like to actually pronounce his name was. Real name, his real name. So it's wreck worse junior. Worse worse worse. So you know everybody worries. For anybody WHO's really interested in the story they did do a movie about it was released in two thousand, eighteen and I've always wanted to see it, but I've never even seen the trailer to be honest, you guys. But I did find out last night. Matthew mcconaughey stars but I don't know who does he play white boy rick. I've never seen it. I just knew we start in. Because I saw the preview our. Whatever one of the women at work asked me about that today? Did you see the documentary I'm like so laughably in eighty-seven. The price of the IT actually would've had more value because that was right. At the Miami vice peak time before coke went through its slump in the nineties and that kind of stuff. I was just doing some quick math and googling, yeah. So it was worth more. More email yet. All right, so you gotTA figure. This guy's been now a. Fifty fifty, one fifty one, so he's been in jail for. How many years amy My God. Do you the mass, casts? Thirty four and. He's been in jail thirty four years well, and not what was clear, not all of it on that he was actually paroled from Michigan six years ago, and was immediately taken into custody again and transported down to Florida. To serve time on. He was convicted of running a stolen car ring while he was in prison. Here in Michigan. So Hey. He. He's a hustler, and so. And so pretty sure now that he's out of prison like he's been out of prison tastes what day three? I heard Raziq protective custody. I've still predict by Friday.

"J. R. Well if you happen to turn on the news or scan through The websites in newspapers. And you saw President Trump is sending federal agents to Detroit. You might have said Wait a minute. Wait a minute. We're not Seattle. We're not Portland. Why all of a sudden? Are we having federal agents come in? It's not quite what you might think It is to clear that up. Police Chief James Craig is on the line on the Mitch Albom show to talk with us. Hi, Chief doing beginning. Everything's going Well, Thank you. Yeah, I was glad that you came right out quickly and And corrected people that this is actually not in response to how Detroit has handled protest or things like that, But but actually something that's been in the works for a while. Can you explain that you may remember back in December late last year, Attorney General Wooden Bar And all of the heads of his enforcement. FBI GF The came to Detroit to announce relentless pursuit and that was an operation. Come in and support. I think it was seven cities to deal with violence. You want to come to Detroit on Ly because the relationship we've already had our federal partners, but also the fact that we are doing a good job that continue to drive crime down. So that happened, But The operation didn't truly kick off till doing the first quarter of this year. And then, of course, called it hit the protests. And then certainly Detroit, like so many other cities, saw an increase in violence. Right and so decision was made to and I'm calling it an enhancement because there's no different what's most important to note Let miss pursuit Operation was already going forward. So this was AH, In addition to we agree that this is a good thing. We've always worked with our federal partners. And we didn't see a problem with it, and we still don't see a problem. So it's what actual tasks will they be doing here in Detroit? We want him to focus on gun crime. And since the uptick in violence, something that we saw a decline Before Cove. It is gang activity again. They're not doing anything different, with the exception of adding additional personnel resource. This is not something new. Even before relentless pursuit. We were working on a joint task force with our federal partners. But you can understand why people when they first heard this. They they were alarmed because Chicago Seattle Portland. They're all having issues that we're not having here. And when I'm President Trump when he has made some remarks, he hasn't made this distinction. When he's talked at his press conferences, he says things like, you know, look at Seattle. Look at Portland, Chicago. Look at Detroit way we get like thrown in there, as if were and and quite frankly, we're the exact opposite of that. We're like a model. In terms of how things went down right after the George Floyd situation, I would actually agree with you on that. And so I don't think that distinction was made quite clear. But it was never Certainly we didn't ask for a tea beginning the protest. Had had some violent tendencies. It was Detroit police Department on the ground, right? And so while we now after now a goingto a week Ask for federal help to control Protests that had been largely peaceful. How has the in the aftermath of George Floyd down that we've had, as you say, weeks? What What numbers have gone up is their considerable more gun violence. Ah, are there are other types of crimes that have increased just because perhaps some criminals feel emboldened because even though it's not true here in Detroit, they may be looking on a national scale and feeling Cops are standing down or they're under siege. And so, hey, it's a good time for us to try to get away without our cops are not standing down and let me just give you evidence of what This police department is doing. We averaged over the last four weeks anywhere between 80 to 110 CCW arrest And so all this is a targeting and focusing on individuals who are illegally carrying guns. And we know that can have a direct impact. On reducing violence, however, We're leaving out the impact of of cold but the early relation present because of colds or our Detroit detention center. We're leaving out a conversation off. They'll reform or Individuals arrested on a felony crimes are being release on personal bond. $1 bail. So these folks are Integrion traduced into the community. Uptick is not just isolated to Detroit. Right, But a lot of the cities have seen uptake Craig Baskin, this off the tragedy of George Floyd. Obviously defund the police became somewhat of a battle cry with that being said, How would you define the morale of the Detroit Police Department as we have this conversation? No. I can tell you having talked to come. And seeing what's going on in other place there. One thing that many officers feel like despite anti police rhetoric that they have to endure doing the protest. They feel supported as well. And because of that support that's not common in every other city. That's when you start having affect Come around. But you know, I've been very public for my support, support those things that this should be supportive. And when there's an allegation of criminality, you know, I take the stand on making sure we do. A thorough investigation of the officers did it right. I'm going to support him. And so that goes along Ray and morale. But when you look at the type of arrest that have been made Spike Kobe despite the anti police rhetoric, Out there arresting individuals carrying guns illegally, But we keep the guns off the street. We continue. To reduce violence. And there are a lot of guns in the street today, Chief I got to ask you. I've been in a long time living this one case of the Coney Island last week. That's case really got to me and for people don't know. I think it was four people killed, seven shot and one incident and the note that will say rumor, but things have been written. Was that just over somebody talking about a guy's gym shoes? And that is that true or not? Because it bothers me to this day. I've heard. Well, here's what I know. It was senseless. There was no reason for situation to escalate. To the point where this man felt this need to take the lives of three people. And shoot before Over what Maybe the victim looked at him a certain way. But to start to escalate to a point where you're using a done And their stories, countless stories and again this is what's driving. This level of violence right now, and that's why I brought it up Those different points. One point I did leave out and we talk about the impact of cold bitch. I mean, is it a psychological impact? You know so and what's interesting When you really look at the violence and compared to other cities, very similar issues they'll reform. Okay, one early release because they called it And so those are common similarities. And then all of a sudden you see this this uptick in violence. Let me let me ask question about bail reform before we finish with you, chief Because you're right..

"Hard top Detroit for more all right first. Up is the news that the federal government and the trump administration are going to get more involved in law enforcement in the city of Detroit. US Attorney General. William Bar unveiled operation relentless pursuit. That's a seventy one million dollar initiative focus on violent crime gangs and drug trafficking and a number of cities including the motor city as well as has albuquerque. Baltimore Cleveland Memphis Milwaukee and Kansas City. The idea is that federal money and talent would partner with local agencies to get the most violent violent offenders off the streets and it is true. That Detroit has the highest violent crime rate per capita in the country but bar was heavy with rhetoric in an editorial in conservative. Detroit news today saying that policing reforms that offered leniency to violent offenders anti police rhetoric and a surge in police officers assaulted led to increases in crime in two thousand fifteen and twenty sixteen the Attorney General referred to operation relentless pursuit as a quote surge. And I'd note that that's a term arm that's often reserved from military operations that will build on the Justice Department's project safe neighborhoods project guardian. And something they're calling deep the disruption in an early engagement program with the goal of reducing gun crime and preventing mass shootings. There would be in their words state of the art technology deployed and about four. One hundred officers nationwide hired for the program but where those officers are going to specifically go. Well that hasn't been announced Jer- I'm GonNa Guess You. There's some thoughts on this one. I I for sure. Do you know as a longtime city resident gotta say and this is regardless of party because both Democrats and Republicans have. I've been heavy on enforcement things. I am always sceptical of anything. That seems more focused on closing people into jail cells than opening doors of opportunity. And let's let's be completely clear here. I am not against lowering crime. Like lowering. Crime is a very good goal but the route and real causes of crime in urban America it's poverty and it's a lack of opportunities and the schools that graduate only ten percent of their kids. That are ready for college. And we've covered this a taunt on this very show programs that focus I mostly enforcement especially and here's the thing they're they're pairing this with cuts to education on a federal level. I mean these are like band. AIDS being applied to gushing wounds and our country has a lot of wounds whether it's an equity racism racism a bunch of other issues. And I mean I don't. I don't think this is a winning combination because if there were jobs proper schools there are more opportunities if people wouldn't turn to crime and I think that's the thing is that we've got to get to the root causes of this and because so many people try to deal with these issues don't live in these kind of communities communities or have to deal with them they don't know how to handle them and make a real dent and locally. I am really cognizant of the verbiage and the feel talking some neighbors of mine. This feels a lot like stress back in the day it was called stopped robberies. Enjoy safe streets and if you didn't know what that was it was basically an undercover unit of the Detroit Police Department in the early Seventies. That were thugs. I mean straight up killing scores of African Americans and there's a great episode of Crime Crime Town that linked to in the show notes. But I mean it is. It is scary when you talk about heavy enforcement for a lot of African Americans in this country and if you want to know one of the key things powered Mayor Coleman young into office. Detroit's first black mayor that I know a lot of listeners find controversial it was enlarged response to to the evils of that stress unit to the African American community and the large number of people. They killed so i. I personally skeptical. Jared skeptical off in a case of to paraphrase Brittany Spears. oops I doubt again. The Detroit free press is reporting the DOM. Oh the largest contractor as part one of the city's massive demolition program as again demolished the wrong house.

It's absurd it's not good and we'll put a Lincoln show notes to the full story a quick reminder that poverty exemption.

FCA is building on. Detroit's east side on Mac as part of the massive deal to get that done. FCA FCA has transferred. Half of what will be one point. Eight million dollars to Detroit's Housing and Revitalization Department to fund a Home Repair Grant Program homeowners. Living living near the plant can get up to fifteen thousand dollars per property to fix up their homes. And here's a key. This is a grant not alone so you don't have to pay it back.

DETROIT ANNOUNCE THE CLOSURE OF ITS HAMTRAMCK location and which has been operating on Joseph Compo for the past three years.

It's actually like it's still a mall in part but there's also a huge chunk of it that's apparently Ford Office space.

Yeah I wonder what will happen out there you know McCone county is definitely growing and the farther out you get. There's there's definitely a lot of investment happening.

TOWNE centre drive They keep talking about this when that might happen and might not happen.

So loops rule number one a drunk driving guys is you can't slam into something so hard that it stops you from continuing to swerve on down the road, the old saying is it's impossible to get away with it if you can't get away. No, that's why you're drunk driving is to get home. Right. Because if I if you didn't wanna go home to just stay where you work, right? But you gotta get home cancel the car now. Yeah. Also, the number one rule is probably don't hit another car with a person in green and red very difficult for and shit. When you're drenching. That's a good point. Well, if you're gonna hit something like stops your car for moving. It's an inanimate object and no one's around. No witnesses. That's right or deer. If you do that commander. Johnny Thomas is the guy who. Yeah. He's a twenty year veteran of the Detroit police department, and he had a blood alcohol level of point one eight two at the scene of the crime, which is more than double the legal limit and about on par about average for for DUI story here on heart factor. Yeah. I mean, one eight two is right at the level where you're like, I pretty sure I can just drive home. But you're clearly way to maybe with one eye closed. You drive out pointer, whoever. You can drive home because you've gotten so drunk that you have bravado, right? Exactly. Oh, you got like the confidence. But you're also stumbling now, right? So apparently Thomas was driving department issued vehicle total cop move there when he smashed into a pickup truck at a red light. He was probably texting prostitute to get her ass on the corner and ten and just didn't look in time smash hits the car. The driver of the truck that got hit looked into his river Muir and saw cop car that didn't have its lights flashing on. He's like you. Gotta be kidding me jackpot. Couldn't believe is dumb. Luck in complained of back pain. I think this is what back pain. Good move. So he was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. But on the way there he's probably texting everyone on finally rich motherfucker, and that is definitely gonna get paid by the state for sure the city I need to start myself driving more on Saturday nights because it's a higher probability of getting hit by drunk drivers. I've been saying that to you. I'm glad you got to get out there. What is what is just drive around drive around? You gotta be sober. But hold on. There's problem. Yeah. That's a problem. Well, the problem is I don't think I've ever been sober under Saturday night. But you also have to hit like the strip of areas with the highest like bar populations. Keep circling around the bars on Saturday night. Anyways Thomas was once he wants ran internal affairs. That's pretty hilarious. And he was considered a rising star in the department for a long time not anymore and a news conference Detroit. Police chief James Craig call the incident, very disappointing. Nice and said Thomas had been placed on restricted duty while he's under investigation. Ultimately Thomas could get fired demoted or retire from this.

I mean, like he fucked up in the only way. He could've fucked up. He had one thing that he couldn't do which was running to a non moving vehicle just put his lights on..

"Everyone has to get their license driver's license. Everyone has have some form of ID. But what the federal government wanted to do after nine eleven was they wanted to go ahead and give everyone on national ID one. That was unconstitutional would have cost a whole ton of money. But essentially, what would have done was it would have been like the census on crack. Because now, it would basically, you know, cut out the middleman from all state law enforcement everything else. Now, you just have a federal database in a way. Like, I I've always argue. Well, I mean, that's the point of. Of things like, you know, social security, but the thing is on social security card. You'll have your your height weight photo fingerprint everything else real ID with gotten a lot more, you know, personal biological information. And when you're looking at you become a criminal in waiting. Oh, basically, I mean, everyone's just waiting for you to do this. And the thing is like I thought I wanted to go into law enforcement criminal Justice field for a while. You know, the the whole the whole thing behind, you know, what we see on CSI, the DNA links crime and everything else, I can always terrified me. And I actually took a course back in like high school about debunking. It was a criminal Justice course, by took a second year of it like like, the advance course, and it was all about like debunking CSI. And the thing is like, you know, when we look at fingerprinting DNA evidence like it only really goes back to the first summit was ever really used was during the J Simpson trial, and even then they. Screwed it up. And even now, we're finding issues one of the earliest examples of, you know, the importance of DNA, but how could also mess things up was. There was a black man back in Kansas who was accused of killing his white, boss. And basically there was an arrest made. But what they ended up doing was they they arrested the guys twin? So the twin was almost on death row. And right before they killed him. The cops thought they saw the same guy walking around the streets who happen to be the real killer, and then they arrested him. And then they were like, okay second. These two guys are twins. And the only thing that they were able to do was you know, they were able to figure out who was who based off fingerprints. But even then they're like, okay. Well, they didn't know how think how you know dust for fingerprints. But they did realize that you know, one one brother had like big swirls and one brother had like real narrow swirl. So at that point they had the basically restart the case and try and figure out which brother was the actual killer. I'm afraid people are us. Is that justification for? For you know, basically using these services saying, oh, well, if the cops want the DNA from all these people in all of this area. Don't you want solve the crime? I do but we're talking about like the same people that like in Detroit back in the late nineties early two thousands of the Detroit police department was the Torius planting cap guns on the scenes of, you know, dead bodies were they were basically shot by the cops. And with the cops would do is if they shot an unarmed person, they would pull out a toy cap gun, and they'd leave at the crime. And they'd be like, oh, well, you know, I thought he had a gun. I heard pop so this is the type you can even you can even put it as simple as this. Do you want the people in charge of the post office in charge of safely and securely handling your genetic background? Do them lucky if my mail arrives on time. Yeah. I don't exactly want because I don't want that kind of power to be in the hands of the government and God forbid to if they can actually manage to long-term store DNA DNA..
