Michigan attorney general probing death of Black man hit by unmarked police car

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has announced that her office will be investigating the death of a Black man who was hit by an unmarked police car in Detroit. The incident has sparked outrage and calls for justice from the community.

The victim, 42-year-old Damon Grimes, was riding his ATV on the city’s east side when he was struck by the unmarked police car. The officers involved in the incident have claimed that they were attempting to pull Grimes over for reckless driving, but he refused to stop. As a result, one of the officers allegedly used a Taser on Grimes, causing him to crash into a parked car.

Grimes was rushed to the hospital, but tragically succumbed to his injuries. The incident has raised questions about the use of force by law enforcement officers and the circumstances surrounding Grimes’ death.

Attorney General Nessel has stated that her office will conduct a thorough investigation into the incident to determine whether any criminal charges should be brought against the officers involved. She has also vowed to ensure transparency and accountability in the investigation process.

The death of Damon Grimes is yet another tragic example of the disproportionate impact of police violence on Black communities. It serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need for police reform and accountability measures to address systemic racism within law enforcement.

Community activists and advocates have called for justice for Grimes and his family, demanding accountability for the officers responsible for his death. They have also highlighted the need for greater oversight and transparency in police practices to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

As the investigation into Grimes’ death continues, it is crucial that the truth be uncovered and those responsible be held accountable for their actions. The community will be watching closely to ensure that justice is served and that steps are taken to prevent such tragedies from happening again.

In the meantime, the family of Damon Grimes and the Detroit community mourn the loss of a beloved son, brother, and friend. They deserve answers, accountability, and justice for the senseless loss of a life that should never have been taken.
