DETROIT (MyFox Detroit) - Nine-month-old Delric Miller was asleep on the couch in his family's home when he was killed in a drive-by shooting. Pressure was mounting in the community to find the person responsible.
Volunteers with the Detroit 300 mobilized. One volunteer close to the investigation told us they were getting their marching orders directly from the Detroit Police Department. We've agreed to conceal the person's identity.
"They brought us in, sat down in a room and gave us the file to look at, the active investigation file to look at -- pictures, addresses, names of the individuals that they (were) investigating."
We're told a top ranking officer gave volunteers a picture of a man they wanted Detroit 300 volunteers to question, a relative of a suspect. He said they were also told to put pressure on Jessica and Stephanie Brown.

Member Of 'Detroit 300' Murdered Outside of Nightclub
Marcel Jackson was gunned down while working security
A member of the "Detroit 300" community group lost a member this week when Marcel Jackson was gunned down outside of Club Pandemonium on Tuesday night.
Jackson was working security at the club when he kicked a man out for slapping a woman. The man who was removed from the club did not leave, instead circled around the building and opened gunfire. Jackson was shot in the back.
I remember hearing of this group a little while back, so thank you Sistren PurpleMoons for sharing this. I wish them every success in their endeavours to tackle the problems in some of our communities. Our homes are our own personal sanctuary and when innocent babies (or anyone) is killed needlessly by a random stray bullet, it sickens the heart, mind and soul. It usually is a small minority of people in our communities that cause the most harm. The majority of people just want to spend their lives in a peaceful productive society.
We are world-class moaners/complainers so when some actually get up AND DO SOMETHING for the betterment of our communites, eye appllaud them!

Thanks so much for this update...
We Need More Groups Like This.
A group of black men declaring war on another group of black men, is really nothing new. They got room in the clinker for them too. This will not end well. I don't get the impression that they have studied the movements like theirs of the past. This looks like pure frustration and ego. The worst thing they could do is give themselves a name and announce their intentions to the press. They have made the mistakes of the BPP. If they were going to do something, they should have just done it. Now they all have FBI files.. and they probably already have Agents within their group. Every one of their facebook/iphone/email accounts is being watched. For all they know, the cops or the feds may be working both sides of the fence. We all know that the Drug trade is police-protected locally.. and it's the Drug trade that finances the Gang culture. What this dude has done is place himself in the Huey Newton/ Fred Hammond seat.. and we all know how that ends: Jail or Death.. while the streets stay exactly the same.
what they're doing is actually what needs to happen.. but their needs to be allot more thought put into it. The element of fanfare has to be completely repressed. Their intentions have to be kept low. They can't have merchandise and websites.. and they can't openly work with the police. It has to be a community thing from start to finish.. and the operation.. that is.. what they're trying to do.. has to be crystal clear from the start. The cases that dude rattled off are not clearly related. Just being frustrated and declaring war with "Gangbangers" whose whole existence is about war.. and who are armed to the teeth.. and have no problem running up in your house.. and who aren't afraid of Jail or the Police.. is really just suicide. The dudes with the black masks on know that. And when these dudes make it to prison, they will see just how deep the gang--drug--cop connection really goes.
No, these are roving groups of punks that prey upon the elderly, weak, females and children. They arent so much organized as they are chicken s**t. They arent gangs in the true sense.
why do you quote my post when you aren't talking about anything I said? Ankhur used to do the same thing.
I just don't know how I feel about this group....I understand the need for protection in our communities, but I fear that this is just going to lead to more "us" vs. "them" which really won't solve anything in the long term....combine that with the fact that you are aligning yourself with the police (which could add tons of other problems in the mix..some of these skuder alluded to) and you are looking at a potentially seriously toxic situation both short term and in the future.......the immediate need of capturing someone may appear to be good (I'm not so much knocking them for doing this), but at the end of the day the conditions of poverty, mis-education, unemployment,etc. all caused by white supremacy will still prevail and the killers, rapists, thieves, drug dealers, etc. will continue to exist until THE problem is addressed.......which makes me wonder, do these brothers target the white folks who bring the guns into our communities????
