PK Note: A must buy you’ll be hearing more and more about. K.M. Breakey’s new book “Shout: The Battle Cry of Freedom.” Buy it today and get an extra copy for your family. Reading it now and can’t put it down.

 

What’s life like in an 89 percent non-white city (77 percent black) on the Fourth of July? Reminder: it’s date increasingly irrelevant to the people occupying a city once deemed the Paris of the West?

Here you go… [New weapons scanners to be deployed as Detroit fireworks return to downtown, WXYZ.com, June 27, 2022]:

DETROIT (WXYZ) — For the first time since 2019 in-person fireworks are returning to downtown Detroit. The 64th Ford Fireworks theme this year is “Hey Detroit, The Sky Shines For You!”

In 2020 and 2021 the fireworks were launched off in Harrison Township without spectators because of the pandemic.

So, what does this mean for safety?

DPD is deploying state-of-the-art metal detectors that can pinpoint a weapon like a knife or a gun, visible or under clothes.

DPD is using smart weapons scanners at this year’s fireworks downtown to help curb violence.

In 2015, 9 people were injured by gunfire and in 2017 3 people were hurt in two separate shootings.

Deputy Chief Franklin Hayes says these smart weapon scanners have already been deployed multiple times. You might have seen them at the Grand Prix, Movement, and several other community events.

“With this technology, we will be able to deploy and make an environment safe and weapon-free,” says Deputy Chief Hayes.

Hayes showed us exactly how these smart detectors work. You walk through it just like a normal metal detector but you can keep everything on you.You can step in either one-by-one or two-by-two and these can scan 3,600 people per hour.

“What we’re looking for are these green lines, which means someone is clear,” Hayes says.

And what they’re also looking for is a red box which indicates you might be armed with a banned weapon of some kind.

In March the Detroit City Council approved a 4-year, 1.3-million-dollar contract with a company called Evolv for 10 weapons detection systems. The city used bond money to purchase these weapon detection systems and, in every event they’ve used them at, they’ve proven successful.

“This technology has done exactly what it is designed to do. The time we have had the hits they were, in fact, firearms from those events, and with this technology deployed we had no incidents of violence,” says Hayes.

We asked some metro Detroiters what they thought about the new technology being deployed to keep on-lookers safe during the fireworks.

“That would be very helpful, and I think it would bring more people to come and see the fireworks,” says Mohamed Aldumaeed.

“I would say yes. But I think the most, I think what would really help is if people would just be a little nicer to each other and not be so angry. But I am glad they’re trying to do something,” says Anthony Boyd.

The fireworks are tonight and there will be an 8:000 pm curfew for minors and fireworks will go off as soon as it gets dark.

Over/Under on how many shootings Detroit will see at the July Fourth celebration in 2022?

Safe to say 10 is the floor.

Were Detroit a city still boasting the demographics of say 1930, would weapons scanners be necessary? No.

In the absence of whiteness, extreme measures are necessary to ensure the safety of those simply trying to enjoy the Fourth of July in the waning days of the American Empire.

  1. Just what we need:  another zone where anyone going in or coming out is guaranteed to be unarmed and thus a perfect target for robbery.

    Detroit’s “Freedom Festival” is supposed to be a celebration of American Independence day, Canada’s Victoria day, and the friendship between both countries.
    This event takes place on both sides of the border, Detroit Michigan bordering Windsor, Ontario Canada.
    This event attracts tens of thousands on both sides of the border and is (supposed to be) a “family-friendly” event.
    At every “Freedom Festival”, roving black gangs have been snatching jewelry and purses from unsuspecting whites and getting away with it.
    There is a police presence, but it appears that they have been ordered not to interact with the crowd. In fact, police officers have been observed watching these crimes take place and doing nothing about it.
    In fact, people who have been accosted have been told to “file police reports” by the police officers on scene.
    Watching the “Freedom Festival” fireworks from the Canadian side is the only “safe” option.

    I’ll take the over PK. Things are heating up in my neck of the woods, multiple “shots fired” incidents every night, and those are just the ones that make the news. Reports note bullets whizzing past construction workers and hitting “unoccupied homes”, as if that makes it any better because I’m sure the shooter knew no one was home in that random house behind their intended target. When describing the black presence in my town, I go between the words: plague, pestilence, cancer, infestation… I guess all of them accurately describe them to a certain degree.

    A whole five miles eh? We must have different definitions for the words “anywhere ” and “near”.

    I’m sure that 8pm curfew for minors will get ALL the dangerous spooks off the streets. Really needs to be a curfew for any darky under 70. The terrifying thing is the level of crazy that 11% white population must be. They must feel like the soldiers at helms deep being outnumbered 10 to 1 by the orc

  13. Completely off topic but the PRNJ very recently dropped its ‘justifiable need’ clause pertaining to concealed weapons permits. That basically should turn us into a ‘shall issue’ state.

    So I stopped by my local PD yesterday and asked for the paperwork required… and was told no. Desk officer said they were awaiting instruction from the attorney general’s office. I told home basically what the attorney general forwarded to all chiefs in NJ to which he responded ‘do you believe everything you read?’.

    Suggestions and comments from this crowd are always welcome. I’m considering a call to the AG myself. I also don’t want to piss them off enough to be memorable so they final another reason when I comes time to deny my application.

    They’ve got guns.

  14. Thank God those White engineers were able to develop the Bantu scanner just in time to celebrate the history of this fine country.

    In a few years a few hundred Bantu defense drones will auto-scan crowds and faces during any type of crowd celebration. They can detect weapons and fire back with dual 30 cal machine guns if voice demands are ignored.

    Let’s all sing tougher:

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    BANTU SCANNERS

  15. @Mr. Rational

    If someone attends this event, and they’re flashing stuff worth taking as well as being unarmed and unaware of the black menace it’s hard to be sympathetic.

    I mean drinking all day in the sun, looking at the most expensive and latest phone on the market and your gf is drunk too while sporting jewelry and a juicy purse?

    Multiple vehicle accident, middle of the day. Five vehicles. One dead. I did a google street view, and the closest speed limit sign I could find on that street was 35 mph. These types of spectacular crashes aren’t supposed to happen in 35 mph zones, unless it’s an old episode of “CHiPs”.

    The first waves will be brutal, but as the food runs out the nogs will be forced to expand their search and move out further; like Indians chasing the White Buffalo. Assuming he weathers the storm, he could be sitting pretty, in a survival commodity rich environment. However, unlike Chernobyl where it’s better to live up-wind, the sh*tstorm nogs create defies nature itself, and will mostly swirl like a stalled sh*t-hurricane; god speed to anyone within the blast radius.

    A big portion of that 11% are SJWs, fat feminists, soy boy hipsters with shitty tattoos, and other soft headed dopes with BLM signs/rainbow flags in their front yards. I recently spent 6 weeks in Toledo working on a house a friend of mine bought, I had never been before and was expecting a rust belt city like Akron or Cleveland. Instead it is like Brooklyn Lite for hipsters too ugly and poor to live in Brooklyn, and they all love to talk about how great Detroit is. My friend’s house is in a historic neighborhood of old large houses built around the turn of the century (1900s not 2000s). It’s a small pocket of old liberal boomers, gays, 200lb+ women with pink/green hair, and their effeminate 130lb boyfriends, surrounded by ghetto blacks, dilapidated buildings and vacant lots. I didn’t know what to expect when I when there, but what I saw was not how I imagined what Toledo was like. It’s only saving grace IMO is that you can still buy a nice family home there for under \$200k, the downside is that it’s in Toledo.

    What area do they consider “Good Luck”, I wonder? That’s not a town, it’s a road. Back in the day it went from Glenn Dale, over to College Park, although at some point it might have had a name change to Calvert Road or something like that, on the CP side. Back in the day, the joke used to be “Good Luck finding a gas station!”

    Only thing I can think of, is the Lanham-Seabrook area, which has been going downhill for ages. Once upon a time, Greenbelt used to be a fairly nice neighborhood, and I suspect that Old Greenbelt, the Co-Op, still is, relatively speaking. Those townhomes are small and modest, with no pretense whatsoever, so they tend to attract either young people just starting out, or older people, but in general, the typical black who wants to show off their bling isn’t going to want to live there. They also require something like 10% down, and the co-op fee is high, so I imagine the typical black would rather go buy something with zero down, that looks more showy.

    The more time you spend around the left the more you realize they are an alliance of resentful rejects.

    Their professed intellectualism is a fabrication.

    They absolutely hate White men that ask too many questions. It spoils their delusion that they are smarter than everyone and just need to take power over the idiots.

    The women don’t even like their own leftist men. They will drop that 130lb boyfriend when they get the chance at something better, even if he is a dedicated leftist. In college I used to nail a leftist while her “enlightened” 120 lb boyfriend would call. She would laugh about it and found it funny that she hadn’t officially broke up with him. Kind of like a cat playing with a mouse.

    The anti-christian American ruling class deliberately engineered the destruction of Detroit. They rejoice at the mayhem and violence that is the hallmark of urban America.

    No actually the ruling class envisioned cities like Detroit becoming multi-racial utopias with Christianity as the common religion.

    Then the Blacks rioted 1967 and chased out Christian Whites and Jews.

    We have both Christian and liberal leaders that believe race doesn’t exist and Detroit’s problems were caused by external factors. That is the underlying issue.

    Detroit was basically handed to Blacks. They had an entirely Black government for decades.

    The Feds now force Arabs to move there through green card restrictions. That is who runs half the shops. Muslims are basically forced into Black areas in an effort to economically stabilize them. This is what our government does instead of facing the reality of race.

    Anyone can basically get a green card if they agree to open a business in Detroit. My wife knows someone that moved here through that program.

    The Pointes are the suburbs immediately to the north on the D. In fact they border each other. Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Woods,etc.

    Ever see Clint Eastwoods Gran Torino? A lot of the filming occurred there. And the ending scene, where the kid is driving the Gran Torino with Walts dog riding shotgun. That’s Lake Shore Dr.

    Contrast that footage with what the blacks did with a once beautiful city they didn’t build nor earn.

    The Pointes are the U.S. side.

    @Kragsystan

    Are you referring to the Canuck border above Michigan?

    It is counterintuitive, but Windsor, Ontario across the river from Detroit is actually South of (below) Detroit.

    So if one were going to Canada, they would go South, not North from Detroit.

  47. Germany has Autobahn, and what the US needs is an Afrobahn.

    A highway only for blacks. No rules and no speed limits. Blacks can go at any speed and plow into one another in Mad Blax fashion. Let them die.
