Detroit Officers Posing As Drug Dealers Get Into Brawl With Detroit Officers Posing As Drug Buyers

downloadIt appears that crime is so low in Detroit that police are left trying to arrest each other.  On the East side of Detroit, the 12th Precinct sent in a team of special ops officers to pretend to be drug dealers.  At the same time, the 11th Precinct sent in officers pretending to a drug buyers. The rest will long be the subject of law enforcement legend.

Sources say that both undercover teams pulled their guns in attempting to arrest the other and ordered the other team to drop to the ground.  That is when the rest of the special ops team from the 12th Precinct showed up, and officers began raiding a house in the 19300 block of Andover.

That last part is is a bit odd for the homeowner: two teams of police officers try to arrest each other and then raid a house nearby.  Accounts say that the homeowner stood by and watched officers punching each other in the melee.

This is not the first time that there has been such confusion and some have far more tragic results. In Albuquerque an undercover police officer was shot several times by his own lieutenant. Albuquerque Police Department Lt. Greg Brachle reportedly did not attend the briefing on the operation before he hit APD Officer Jacob Grant eight times  in January 2015. Grant settled a lawsuit for  $6.5 million.

  1. This might have something to do with the “Emergency Financial Manager” that the Governor has control over. The city has been busted up between public and private interests. And sold off to the highest bidder. Detroit cops do not know who calls the shots anymore. One group has control over one area, and private has control over others. Maybe someone from Motown can clear it up.

  2. Presumably the injured in this incident were taken to the emergency room.

    Eureka! We have found the solution to the Obamacare debacle.

    As California requires drivers to buy a liability insurance policy,

    Congress should simply pass an “Emergency Room Policy” law

    requiring citizens to produce a binder as proof.

  3. What rational person would want to be a cop? You get to beat people and tell the family about the bloody murder scene or gory car wreck at dinner – if you make it home for dinner. They’re not twisted, right? They only do the job because it’s money for nothin’ while being mean and nasty to other people. Eat doughnuts and get paid, right? Cops are bad guys but they are “our” bad guys.

    • That’s absurd.

      Cops typically have a strong protective instinct. They want to protect the public from the bad people who pray upon them. It’s a vocation to many. Cops go into danger regardless of the race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation of the victim. From what I recall, when an officer discharges his weapon, he gets taken off active duty while the incident is investigated. Cops get deeply impacted when they respond to a car accident or crime scene, especially when the victims are children.

      The negative side of being a police officer, from my observation, is that they often deal with the dregs and liars of society, which can make them jaded and tired. They are not appreciated and often hated, even spit upon. They have to carry spit hoods in their cars. And they go through this to save and protect family, friends, and strangers.

      I don’t know where you got this opinion of cops, but it does not sound like you know any. People who disdain cops still call 911 and pray they hurry.

  4. Seems under these circumstances there should be a special office of the DA who could step in and prosecute both sides.

    I mean, if an undercover cop has done something to convince another cop that there is sufficient evidence to arrest and convict, how different is that from actually doing the crime?

  5. If I were an urban undercover cop, or team supervisor, I would be using the highest level of security to protect the identities of my cops. I believe that is how such a confrontation occurs. They are lucky nobody got shot.

  6. The fact two groups of police officers couldn’t resolve the incident without coming to blows does not speak well of their de-escalation skills.

  7. And NOW some REAL news that you won’t get from the Leftist-Corruption-Cover-up artist, J Turley. Did you hear about the corrupt Timothy Bibaud, a district court judge in Dudley, Massachusetts. and his vile, criminal daughter, in the vile, corrupt state of Massachusetts along with the vile, corrupt local police department officials? Of course, you didn’t. That’s REAL news that the mainstream media presstitutes bury in their “back pages.” But if you learn to look away from the usual BS Fake News that presstitutes want you to focus on and swallow whole, you can occasionally see some real news like this:

    • Wait, Ralph; you thought it was a SECRET” that there are corrupt troopers amongst the Mass State Police? Not “covered up” by any news media, just so rampant that it’s very little news. For me, a Detroit guy, I’s far more concerned that there is such lack of coordination between two “neighboring-and-touching” precincts in Detroit. What’s really interesting about your ad hominem attack on Turley is that most of the people I know who read his blog are convinced that he is far too conservative for a professor to be.

    • Ralph, Why would you think anyone should be able to rely on this blog for comprehensive news coverage. This is a blog, not a national newspaper. Like any blog, it contains matter that the writer wants to write about on any given day for any reason he chooses.

      • The issue is not “comprehensive news.” The issue is that JT purports to be a “legal scholar” and to address the leading legal issues of the day. I am simply pointing out, in my inimical way, that this is simply not true. I am also pointing out that ethics and integrity are now considered ancient relics of a bygone era. And we should not pretend that things are otherwise. The legal system is loaded with rotten apples, and if JT had a shred of decency, he would attempt to expose this legal corruption from time to time. But he does not, of course. The reason is he is a part of the corrupt system.

          “Wall Street Journal Reporter Asks Russia For “Clinton Information” —-Turns Up DEAD 2 Days Later”

          “A Wall Street Journal Editor who was investigating how a Russian
          Pharmaceutical firm could have been purchased in 2014 by an American
          Pharmaceutical firm while Sanctions against Russia existed against such
          business transactions, has been found dead in his New York City
          apartment. The crux of the dead journalists investigation was how
          then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton influenced the transaction to be
          finalized, but only AFTER her husband Bill was paid $500,000 for giving
          a speech in Moscow.

          The Russia Consulate General’s office in New York City was contacted
          by Wall Street Journal reporter/editor Joseph Rago who requested a
          Thursday (20 July) in person interview with consular officials regarding
          an upcoming article he was preparing on Hillary Clinton and her links
          to Russia. Rago failed to attend the meeting and was later discovered
          dead in his apartment of as yet “unknown causes” just hours prior to
          this meeting occurring.”

          • Whenever someone starts to dig up information on the Clintons that will expose their corruption, it’s becoming a risk that they will get suicided for their efforts.

      • Jay, I dislike the corruption in the government of Massachusetts, not the region. In fact, I’m very fond of Cape Cod and Nantucket and used to vacation there frequently.

    • Terrill – since they were supposedly undercover, they were disguised as gang members and would have been wearing their colors.
