DETROIT, MI – Several law enforcement agencies worked together to conduct raids on houses all over the city of Detroit yesterday. Dubbed ‘Operation April Showers’ was the seventh full scale drug sweep in recent months.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig is keeping his promise to residents that sweeps will continue until the bad guys get the message. Residents were over come with joy as they saw the raids being conducted in their neighborhoods. Found during those raids were heroin, crack, marijuana and illegal firearms.
Commentary on social media sites has been split. What has been evident with those commenting is the divide of ages. Those younger are in many ways thumbing theirs noses at the efforts while those a little older are praising any amount of police presence.
