Protecting and serving
Detroit, bankrupt in certainly more ways than economic, finds itself in a situation not unlike New Orleans after hurricane Katrina just a few years ago.
Community members in one Detroit neighborhood took matters into their own hands and beat an accused rapist of a 15-year-old girl with Down Syndrome after they say Detroit Police failed to respond. Friday marks the 23rd day without an arrest after the 15-year-old victim said a man grabbed her while she was walking to work, took her to his apartment and raped her in early July.
The suspect lives in the same neighborhood as the victim. Members of the Hubbard Farms community say the man has mental health issues. They posted his face on flyers around the neighborhood to warn others.
Family friend of the victim, Megan Herres says the teen waited for seven hours at the hospital for Detroit Police to administer a rape kit. She reportedly waited five days before police interviewed her about the sexual assault and 21 days until Detroit Police sent the rape kit to the Michigan State Police Crime Lab.
The passing idea that justice should somehow be done in the earth by man is an ephemeral one. God enacts justice, not man. Men are infected by the prevailing evil. God gave the law to have mankind understand justice, but it would not. Get used to the fact that police aren’t any more moral than thugs with badges. Pay someone enough and they’ll do the job, man or woman. Police have no loyalties to virtue. The law are the police and courts who have power, not some documents. Forget about the Second, Fifth or any other US Constitutional Amendment or the Constitution itself. Forget legislation, it’s meaningless. Those concepts were trashed a long time ago.
Community members beating a rapist acted as judge, jury and executioners because the evil of government won’t. Get used to this because it’s one of the last vestiges of a society grasping for some sense of justice in the midst of overwhelming blind decay.
