As major cities across the United States have succumbed to violence from liberal mobs and given in demands to cut police funding in the months following the death of George Floyd, one major American city has not experienced the same level of mob violence.
Like other major cities, Detroit votes overwhelmingly Democratic in presidential elections and has been controlled by Democrats for decades. However, unlike the cities that have experienced destructive riots at the hands of Black Lives Matter and antifa supporters, the Motor City has a leadership that is willing to put its feet down.
The city’s police chief, James Craig, appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” last week to explain what makes his city different.
Host Tucker Carlson began the Tuesday segment by pointing to Detroit as “one unlikely success story” that has emerged in the time of national unrest.
“Rioters there have not looted or destroyed a single business in the city of Detroit,” he added.
When Carlson asked why the city has not experienced the kind of riots that have struck elsewhere, Craig gave a simple, straightforward answer: “We don’t retreat here in Detroit. We’re just not going to do it.”
