Attorney General to review police questioning of man for staring

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel.

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s attorney general has ordered an investigation of police in suburban Detroit who questioned a black man when a woman claimed he was staring at her.

Dana Nessel said Friday that her civil rights division will review the conduct of Royal Oak police following the Tuesday incident .

The police department has apologized, saying the encounter with 20-year-old Devin Myers should have been “very short” and the officer “had no legal right” to demand his identification. The probationary officer will receive additional training, and a supervisor has been disciplined.

The woman called 9-1-1 and reported feeling uncomfortable after a man circled her vehicle. Myers told WXYZ-TV he had parked his car and was walking to a restaurant when he was stopped.

    WHY ISN’T FOX REPORTING SHOOTINGS ANYMORE?Let me help you.
    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — There were two shootings that happened hours apart in Grand Rapids so far this weekend.

    A man was shot while sitting in his car near Clancy Avenue and Coldbrook Street around 10:45 p.m. Friday night on the northeast side of Grand Rapids.

    It is unclear if the victim was shot more than once but police say he is in stable condition.

    The victim is not cooperating and there is no information on the suspect at this time.

    The second shooting happened around 4:20 a.m. Saturday morning on the southeast side near Franklin street and Geneva Avenue.

    The victim was shot once and sustained non-life threatening injuries.

    The victim is not cooperating and will not say what had happened. There is no suspect description.
    LML25:Stocking and 5th had 4 shots fired last week–nothing from FOX–why?Is this considered normal now for GR and not news?
