Gallery: Hey hey, ho ho -- Detroit Protesters Want Chief and Mayor to Go


June 30, 2020, 12:04 AM

A protest march was relatively peaceful Monday night in Detroit, one night after officers rammed demonstrators with an SUV. 

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Monday afternoon the department was investigating the matter, but defended the police.

Hours later, a couple hundred or so spirited protesters marched in Southwest Detroit, with some calling for the resignation of the chief and Mayor Mike Duggan. They also chanted "no justice, no peace," "Black Lives Matter,"  and derided President Trump,  Duggan and Little Caesars.  

The protest ended peacefully around 10 p.m. where it had started, at the 4th Precinct police station on West Fort Street.
