Why is there no outcry from the public of the killing of
Detroit Police Department, MI
EOW: Sunday, May 31, 2020
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Police Officer Jay Johnson succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained on April 30th, 2017, while responding to a domestic violence call at 10075 Joy Road.
He and another officer approached a common front door to the apartment complex which was locked. After several minutes of knocking on the door, a man unrelated to the call for service came downstairs, opened the door, and pointed a semi-automatic handgun at Officer Johnson.
Officer Johnson immediately grabbed the firearm and began to struggle with the subject. Officer Johnson let go of the firearm to draw his service weapon. They both fired simultaneously. Officer Johnson was struck once in the head and the subject was struck twice by Officer Johnson. The other officer also returned fire before pulling Officer Johnson from the entryway. The subject died at the scene.
Officer Johnson suffered a traumatic brain injury and remained in a rehabilitation facility until his death.
Officer Johnson had served with the Detroit Police Department for 17 years. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.”
Here is the man you should bemoaning his death. Killed in the line of duty trying to help people. Instead, a career criminal is your hero. Sad to see the minds of so many people mixed up about what is truly good and what is evil.

Officer Enriquez was one of the first officers who arrived at the scene and tended to the victim outside of the home. As she and other officers walked toward the house the man opened fire, killing her. Officer Kalama was shot moments later as he and other officers arrived on the scene. Both officers were shot in areas above their bulletproof vests.
After shooting the officers, the man barricaded himself inside of his home and set it on fire. The flames spread to neighboring homes, destroying a total of seven homes. The man and two women were presumed dead in the fire.
Officer Enriquez was a U.S. Air Force Reserves veteran. She had served with the Honolulu Police Department for seven years and had previously served with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee. She is survived by three daughters and one grandson.”
No outcry from the public for these minority victims. Why because they wore a badge.
