The tough times in Detroit, Michigan continue, and this time not even their police department is safe. Late Monday evening, some still unidentified people cut a hole in a fence surrounding the Detroit Police Department’s 6th Precinct . They went up to four different police cars and smashed their windows open. As WJBK FOX 2 Detroit reports, maybe the only silver lining in all of this was that nothing was actually stolen.
WJBK notes that the perpetrators declined to steal any of the expensive radio equipment in the cars. This leads police to believe that they were in searchof guns in trunks. Detroit Police Deputy Chief Nene Hall points out, however, their weapons are not just left in car trunks. So that’s good. The Detroit News writes that police are reviewing surveillance camera footage, and do not have a description of the suspects – yet.
Meanwhile, many Detroiters are frustrated with the crime in their city. WJBK captured a wonderful reaction from resident Shea Woods, which we have GIF’d for your viewing pleasure:
