Regardless of your politics, if somebody calls 911 and says that a man at a polling station has told you to leave because he has a gun, is it not mandatory that the police arrive as soon as possible to check on the situation?

Not in Detroit apparently…

First, there was this tweet from Election Journal:

Then, the followup – Via Michigan GOP (h/t Weasel Zippers):

This morning, a legally credentialed poll watcher was threatened and intimidated while attempting to perform his legally allowed duties of observing the election process at precinct polling location 289 in Detroit.

The poll watcher, a lawyer, was confronted by a voter in line, who demanded the poll watcher produce his credentials, which he did.

However, the voter said that wasn’t good enough and that he had “a badge and a gun” and told the poll watcher get out of the precinct.

Rather than allow the situation to escalate, the poll watcher left before the voter produced a badge or brandished a gun.

Fearing for his safety, the poll watcher exited and called 911, however the Detroit Police refused to respond to the call – neglecting the fact that a voter alleged to have a ‘badge’ and a ‘gun’ in a precinct, putting other voters at risk.

Let’s see.  A man threatens a voter with a badge and gun.  Said voter calls more men with badges and guns. They don’t respond.  Why?  Was the first man allegedly holding a badge and gun professionally related to the other men with badges and guns?

Let’s hope the one doing the threatening wasn’t actually a police officer.

Report: Trayvon Martin Tried to Grab Zimmerman’s Gun While Attacking Him, Witnesses Corroborate Story

March 27, 2012 at 10:43 am (Assault, Florida, George Zimmerman, Gun, Media, Orlando Sentinel, Race Baiting, Trayvon Martin, Violence)

The liberal media will never let the facts stand in the way of a really good race-baiting story…

Via WTAM-1100:

The neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin said the Florida teen physically attacked him and tried to get his gun, ABC News reported.


The Orlando Sentinel reported Monday authorities said on the night of the Feb. 26 incident and in subsequent meetings George Zimmerman described and re-enacted what he said happened. He told police he had followed the youth because he was behaving suspiciously but turned around after losing sight of him…


… Zimmerman told authorities he was walking back to his sport utility vehicle when the 17-year-old approached him from behind. The two exchanged words, with the teen asking the Zimmerman volunteer if he had a problem and when the man replied no, allegedly said something to the effect “Well, you do now,” the Sentinel said.


Zimmerman said Martin knocked him to the ground with one punch, then jumped on him and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times so hard he was bloodied and battered, the Sentinel said. He said he then shot Martin, who was unarmed, once in the chest from close range in self-defense.

ABC News reported a police source quoted Zimmerman as saying the youth had tried to get his gun.

And then, there’s this…

Authorities told the newspaper much of Zimmerman’s account has been corroborated by witnesses.

Read the rest…
