Riots and destruction continue in many Democrat-controlled cities because they are allowed to continue. In Detroit, however, not one business has been destroyed or looted. Detroit Police Chief James Craig says his city kept the peace because they decided at the beginning that “We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals.” He credited the residents of the city, who he said stood with the police.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Detroit Police Chief James Craig discussed how his city kept the peace during recent protests and rioting across the country. Craig said that he made a tactical decision that “We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals.” And credited the residents of the city, who he said have had enough with “misguided radicals that have tried to incite violence in our city.”

Craig said, “One thing I learned from my time in Los Angeles, we don’t retreat here in Detroit. We’re just not going to do it. You saw the images, Tucker, of streets where there was lawlessness, looting, burning, no sight of police officers. We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals. We just didn’t do it.”

He added, “Detroiters are fed up with these radical [protesters.] I’m not talking about the peaceful protesters. I’m talking about…these misguided radicals that have tried to incite violence in our city. They said, we’re not going to put up with it. And so, we’ve got a couple of things. We’ve got a great police department, great leadership, but we have a community that stands with us and by us, and said, enough is enough.”

This article could simply have read “state violence used to prevent random unrest” which is true everywhere.
I don’t believe there are any heroes to be seen in this fascist-socialist vs communist-socialist bit we see on the news.,
