JUSTICE FOR RENISHA: Detroit Demands Answers in McBride Killing

<p> WJBK</p>

Community leaders are planning to assemble Thursday evening at the Dearborn Heights Police Department to demand answers in the slaying of Southfield teen Renisha McBride.


According to the Detroit Free Press, members of  her family said “they believe the African-American woman was racially profiled by the homeowner. They said McBride, whose cell phone had died, had gone up to the house on Outer Drive seeking help after she was involved in an auto accident early Saturday morning.”

Dearborn Heights police are seeking unspecified charges against the homeowner, who has yet to be identified. According to reports, McBride was shot in the back of her head with a shotgun as she turned to leave the front door.


“We are outraged and demand to know this man’s identity; He doesn’t deserve to have his identity protected and we demand his arrest,” said co-organizer and author dream hampton. Hampton is organizing the event with Yusef Shakur, an author and local community activist.


The protest is scheduled to happen at 6 p.m. this evening at 25637 Michigan Ave in Dearborn Heights.
