From" In 1967, they watched their city erupt. Fifty years on, how has Detroit changed?" by Drew Philip for The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/06/detroit-riots-1967-protests).

Former Detroit police chief Isaiah ‘Ike’ McKinnon in his office. Detroit, 2017.

McKinnon was in his second year on the force when the disturbance in 1967 erupted. One of the approximately 75 black police at the time – in a force that was about 93% white – he was assigned to the precinct at the epicenter. Driving home one night, still in uniform and wearing his badge, he was stopped by two white police officers.

The lead officer approached the car, held a gun to his head and said: “Tonight you’re going to die, nigger.” He began to pull the trigger.

Speeding away in his Ford Mustang convertible, pushing the accelerator with his right hand and steering with the other, McKinnon was shot at as he drove for his life.

Upon filing a complaint with his sergeant, the extent of the investigation was: “Ike, we got some assholes out there.”

“If these guys are behaving this way to me, a fellow law enforcement officer,” McKinnon said, “what are they gonna do to people in the street?”

Notes. This co-creation session at Ingrid LaFleur's campaign headquarters was focused on tax foreclosures. Counting with the help of Jerry Paffendorf, co-founder of Loveland Technologies, the discussion's goal was to answer questions like: Do you know how the tax foreclosure system works? What can we do to keep people in their homes and increase homeownership for Detroit residents? How do we stop predatory investing in our homes? What is city government doing to exacerbate the problem? What can city government do to resolve the issues?. Detroit, 2017.
