Obama-appointed judge orders police not to use batons or tear gas on protestors for 2 weeks

An Obama-appointed judge in Detroit has ordered the city’s police to not use tear gas, shields, batons, chokeholds, rubber bullets, sound cannons, or any other type of non-lethal force against protestors for the next two weeks.

The Friday ruling granted a temporary restraining order to the far-left group Detroit Will Breathe, which sued the city on Monday, claiming that excessive police force infringed upon their First Amendment rights.

U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Michelson, an Obama appointee, ordered police to stop using any type of force during protests without “probable cause.”

“For a short period, we know that the police will not be able to use the brutal tactics they have in the past against peaceful protesters without violating a court order,” said Jack Schulz, who filed the order on behalf of the radical group.

Breitbart.com reports: But Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the police have not used force against peaceful protesters.

“We’re going to continue to do our jobs the way we’ve done it,” he said. “We respect peaceful protesters. We understand the judge’s order and we’ll make sure the protesters understand if there’s any aggression or violation of law, they will get ample notice like we’ve done in the past.”

The lawsuit claimed that some of the officers’ use of force had left some protesters hospitalized.

The department is investigating about two dozen complaints against police officers, including one about a police officer who allegedly hit three photojournalists with rubber bullets and was charged with felony assault, the Detroit News reported.

Officers are also banned from tying zip ties to the point of causing injury or arresting lots of protesters without probable cause.

The Detroit Board of Police Commissioners on Wednesday passed guidelines that prohibit officers from using chokeholds and requires the board to intervene if another officer uses excessive force.

Craig, however, claimed that the police had not used chokeholds against protesters.

“If someone is resisting arrest, or trying to attack our officers, we will use the force that’s both reasonable and necessary to overcome the resistance,” he told the Detroit News. “We don’t want the protesters injured, and we don’t want officers injured, either.”


  1. Black or white don’t matter. It is time the Police are brought under control. Their black Magic suits, caps and badge does not allow them to do what they please.

    • They don’t If they did the u Undertakers would be a major growth i industry Some are crooked ,for sure and some are just stupid I recall one of my classmates being shot dead by a new rookie when he answered the door after some girl rang the cops saying he was raping her .Theres millions of mistakes made but still no cops would be a huge mistake They need a change of political cirrectness because they are corrupt at the highest levels and have bern for centuries all over the Western world. Just like the highest kevels of EVERYTHING

  2. Well a lot of judges are really corrupt. It comes from the symbol at London’s lawyer trading college ,with the owl above the inverted sword flanked by the chequerboards. Cant recall its,name something like brickheart college .

      • Ih and as usual crooked Wikipedias symbol on their site for Birbeck is WRONG .Its two lamps and the owl and in each side theres 7 squares on the left and 8 on the right so if you closed it like it were a book they would fit into each other like a jigsaw puzzle .Wikipedias is NOT to be trusted. They blatantly lie .

    • Laurie Michelson is yet another example of Jewish diversity privilege.

      There’s a highly disproportionate number of Jewish federal judges, and all of them ignore the US constitution and its strict limits on federal power.

      • Jews (or those that call themselves jews) make up about 1% of the world’s population, yet hold every pivotal position in government, business, banking, and the music/entertainment industries. That is no coincidence.

  3. When the thugs enter the judges neighborhood, he will want a stronger police force. I don’t think most people realized how corrupt Obama was.
