We reported a story a few days ago about men impersonating police officers and robbing innocent civilians at gunpoint in Detroit. As it turns out, the men were actual police officers terrorizing the people of their jurisdiction.

Two men — one a sergeant and 20 year veteran with the Detroit Police Department —are accused of running up on citizens and robbing them at gunpoint.

It wasn’t until a photograph taken by a civilian implicated the men when it was distributed to local media.

“It wasn’t until a photograph was sent to the media that someone investigating the case recognized him as a Detroit Police employee,” Detroit Police Chief James Craig said of the implicated Detroit Police Department Sergeant.

“The Good Samaritan who took those photographs saw that something wasn’t right.”

The officers robbed two men at an east side gas station on July 21, according to police. One of the victims was assaulted.

“It’s alleged they stole money and a cell phone,” Craig said.

To say Detroit is having a rough go as of late would be a dramatic understatement. With the city filing for bankruptcy and receiving intruders from Canada, the Motor City could use some serious help.

This may explain the Detroit Police Department’s average response time of 58 minutes: they’re the ones committing the armed robberies!
