Citing lack of murderers, Detroit turns its attention to resident business owners and fathers

It’s a busy week, so light blogging for now.  But here’s a little heartwarming tale to hold you over:

In early September, Sean Harrington was pulling his twin boys on a trailer attached to his bike for a day of fun in downtown Detroit along the river walk.

He was returning home and riding down the sidewalk on Park Street when he pulled onto the street to avoid hitting baseball fans who were blocking his path.

He admits he was going the wrong way down a one way street, but he was about fifty feet from his home.

“It’s a bicycle and it was four car-lengths that I was on the wrong way street,” said Harrington.

Police still stopped him and issued him a ticket.

“I can’t wrap my brain around what the police department thinks at any given time when the most dangerous criminal in the city of Detroit is myself,” said Harrington.

Several days later, he received a letter in the mail, asking him to appear in court in November, facing the possibility of being charged with child endangerment.

Lord knows the cops don’t have anything better to do in that town.
