Authorities say Jones is unemployed and lives with his mother and younger brother.
He quit high school halfway through the 11th grade because 'it was too difficult'.

Detroit suburbs are where elderly white men scare off pickpocketers. Detroit proper is where white guys who stop when they hit a pedestrian get beat into unconsciousness and robbed.

I lived in the Park for a bit on Wayburn. We shut down a bunch of side streets. But we spent 60%+ of the city budget on public safety. We called the cops the Border Patrol.

The criminal is *always* black.  I can predict it with near 100% accuracy these days.

I'm starting to wonder why anyone other than black people even bother living in Detroit at all - they've turned it into a Max Max-style lawless wasteland.

At least in Detroit, the criminal is 'always black', because the city's population is like 82% black. If you had a similar city full of poor white people, surprise surprise, the criminals would be all white.

Most criminals share characteristics, but race isn't one of them. It's all poverty, lack of education, lack of opportunities.

So we should cut education more and build walls to keep the darkies out of the suburbs, because it's obvious that black people are lawless subhumans, duh.

Cut education more? Spending for the Detroit area doesn't seem to support your inference

I believe you'll find the cultural differences a major player, and not simply "the man" keeping them down.

Don't know, but there is a bar in Flint called "The Soggy Bottom". I would expect that from Saugatuck, but Flint?

Here's what's going to happen he'll post the 10% cash which is $500 and get out and disappear into Detroit joining the tens of thousands of other denizens who have open felony warrants. Either that or they'll let him plead to some BS misdemeanor.

I can't believe we live in a country the still allows old Nazis like this to get away with assaulting proud young fat people of color. That old racist just clobbered that aspiring proud youngster in the prime of his life. When will the boundaries of race be eradicated in this country?

I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years back. A high school punk told me he was going to shoot me if I didn't give him my money. Where I live in Indiana, the population is about 85% White, and guess what race the punk was? He was White, of course.

Because it doesn't work with some people. All the money in the world won't turn a loser into a genius if all they want to do is sit around playing video games.

Are you one of those that liked video games? Because you're obviously uneducated, or just plain stupid.
