Dozens of Murderers, Rapists Released by Detroit Warrant Backlog

December 16, 2014  | 

Dozens of suspected murderers, rapists and other criminals who were arrested by Detroit Police over the past four years have been released because of a backlog of unsigned warrants at the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, The Detroit News has found.

Among the pending and as yet unsigned warrants are 21 for murder, including one going back to 2010. There are 105 for sexual assaults, 126 for child abuse and 25 from the Detroit Police Fatal Squad. In most cases, police were forced to release the suspects, since state and federal law says they can't be held beyond 72 hours without being arraigned.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy insists many of the releases are a result of too few employees in her office.

What planet are we living on? Is this the alternate universe?? They dont have enough employees to handle the case load??? This can only embolden criminals to ratchet up w/o any deterrent in place. Once again...Suit Up....rough road ahead.

Sure sounds like the good people of Wayne County need to RECALL that arrogant self serving prosecutor and replace her with some one who can do the job.. Really 25 tricking murderers and 105 rapists ---your staff is too tricking busy to sign the warrants for them? WHAT THE HELL! The people of that County should march down to her office (if they are not too busy being anti cop) and demand she take a hike! She should resign TODAY!. People of Wayne County STAND UP and fire that LOSER NOW!

Don't expect anything different from the same city that's been ran (day 1 until today) by liberal Democrats. The world has seen where that got them. Corrupt, Financially Broke, Nasty Ran Down Neighborhoods, & Bankruptcy. Instead of Wayne County it is more like "Wayne's World."

Detroit is a microcosm of what the nation will look like if liberalism spreads.

Tom Ret is 100% correct and we are headed there Code 3
