SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI – The Shelby Township Police Department is aware of Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido’s statements regarding covid related deaths occurring in nursing homes and his sights being focused on Michigan’s Governor Whitmer.
Lucido, in what many are calling politically motivated and scurrilous, is trying to get criminal charges brought against Governor Gretchen Whitmer over putting COVID patients inside nursing homes during the height of the pandemic. This is a waste of resources that are already stretched thin to begin with. He was not elected to be the Macomb County Prosecutor to use the office to place targeted political attacks towards the Governor.
Shelby Township Police are aware of his instructions encouraging family members to make a police report with their local police department. Their department is confirming that today they did take a complaint about this issue. The initial report has been made and will be turned to their detective bureau. Members of that unit will work with the prosecutor’s office to determine the appropriate steps to take.
