Drug Dealers Are Being Robbed by Narcotics Officers in Detroit
The number of cases coming to light of police criminal behavior, brutality and outright murder has become daunting. In the 60s and 70s growing up, law enforcement held a higher standard and were respected individuals who took their commitment to serve and protect with pride. Today, it seems an alarming number of officers are just bullies with a gun and a badge.
According to the indictment, Hansberry and Watson set up, robbed and extorted Detroit’s citizens while using their authority as officer of the law. After arranging drug deals, they would intimidate the other parties, encouraging them to flee the scene, leaving drugs, money and property behind for the taking. Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG couldn’t believe this actually happened.
U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said of the way Craig handled the situation, “We applaud Craig’s commitment to root out any officers who tarnish the badge.” Hansberry and Watson have been suspended without pay and Craig is left with concern over the public’s trust in their officers after such disturbing allegations.
