Ypsilanti News Update
We bring you the news because the news happens.
1. There has been a ‘rash’ of home invasions in Ypsilanti and Superior Townships. Read about the breaking and entering here: http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2015/08/rash_of_home_invasions_reporte.html#incart_river This is not abnormal for our area, except the perpetrators don’t often Break to enter. Usually, they go into your car, house, or garage through unlocked doors. Ways to prevent this are: double-checking to make sure doors are locked, security systems, security signs, and other deterrents like dogs, motion sensor lights, motion sensor alarms (some make a dog-barking sound), making sure your place looks well lived-in and like many people are HOME and watching, and getting involved in your local neighborhood watch.
2. Here is a video on YouTube of local activist Anthony Morgan being arrested during a peaceful protest in Ypsilanti. There appears to be a lot of controversy surrounding this arrest, suggesting that Mr. Morgan was singled out from the other peaceful protesters for some reason. Perhaps because he is very active sharing the #BlackLivesMatter Campaign? We need to keep an eye on this situation to ensure that he is treated fairly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v-gsgtlkdg
