Chaos In Detroit: Undercover Cops Battle Each Other In Sting Operation Gone Wrong

Tyler Durden's picture

This weekend, a big “embarrassment” is festering inside the Detroit Police Department after undercover units from two separate police precincts exchange blows during a sting operation gone wrong.

Fox2 says it all started when two special operations officers from the 12th Precinct were posing as drug dealers to entrap city residents in a ‘push off’.

The officers were working in Andover on Detroit’s east side, known for high drug activity.

As officers from the 12th Precinct pretended to be dope dealers, two special operations officers from 11th precinct showed up pretending to be customers. As the deal went bad, the 11th precinct officers ordered the 12th Precinct officers to the ground not knowing that they were fellow colleagues.

That is when all hell broke out and we’ll let Fox2 describe what happened next:

FOX 2 is told the rest of the special ops team from the 12th Precinct showed up, and officers began raiding the drug house in the 19300 block of Andover. But instead of fighting crime, officers from both precincts began fighting with each other.


Sources say guns were drawn and punches were thrown while the homeowner stood and watched. The department’s top cops were notified along with Internal Affairs. One officer was taken to the hospital.  

Taryn Asher, Fox2 Anchor/Reporter in Detroit, shares her story of what went wrong...

In a rare incident of ‘blue on blue violence’– this is something that is rarely discussed nevertheless happens. Each officer is now under investigation- as the top brass of the police department and internal affairs have now started their investigations. Nevertheless, top brass of the Detroit Police Department declined to comment and said more details next week.

Bottomline: The story is still developing and we suspect this incident could gain more attention when the ‘reported body-cam footage’ is released.

I'm fairly confident "Assaulting an Officer" is an especially heinous crime, with special punishments.

They probably tried to plant evidence on themselves.

I'll bet this drug deal was all set up by the FBI.

The homeowner should have dialed 911. Get the 13th involved

About 4½ years ago I lost respect for police when I was drug out of my car while working as a PI at the time (shitty job, don't do it).  You know what I was nervous about?  That they would plant some sort of evidence on me, and the only thing that might've saved me was pulling into a convenience store parking lot where there were a lot of eyeballs around and security cameras which they could've perhaps doctored of course.

Cops?  Fuck 'em.  Just a bunch of union thugs trying to get pensions indeed.  My girlfriend's landlord did TEN years and collects a pension.  Something about a "bad back" and being "disabled".  Whatever, bunch of low-IQ asshats with an agressive version of an entitlement complex and chips on their shoulders.

Similar to the plant evidence on each other suggestion, I also suspect they were fighting over expected shakedown bribes they expected the other side to pay.

We are the drug cops of this neighborhood, the bribes are, we are the drug cops of this neighborhood, the bribes are ours....

when i was a private dick in san fran the flatfoots were always trying to plant a gat on me....but i never took the fall see. i would tell them if they kept riding me they would be picking iron out of their liver. the cheaper the crook the gaudier the patter i always said.

I said to myself, ‘You’re a tough guy. You’ve been sapped twice, choked, beaten silly with a gun, shot in the arm until you’re crazy as a couple of waltzing mice. Now let’s see you do something really tough—like putting your pants on. many times I was thinking about that dame upstairs, and the way she had looked at me, and I wanted to see her again, close, without that silly staircase between us.good times....dames...With my brains and your looks, we could go places. but you know what he’ll do when he comes back? Beat my teeth out, then kick me in the stomach for mumbling.


i finally got out of the business. When your head says one thing and your whole life says another, your head always loses....its what dreams are made off i always said.

It must have been really good deception if both sides bought the sting/SARC

Cops do not follow the law, they enforce it.

Drug law enforcement, etc., ALWAYS involves a police undercover purchase or sale of illegal goods to establish the crime.

Sometimes shit goes sideways.

Probably there was one group of good officers who got into it with another group of corrupt officers

Scratch that, nevermind, more likely one group of corrupt officers got into it with another group of corrupt officers

Hey now, shut you mouth and pay your taxes goy.  Comply or else we'll throw you through the judicial assfuck system.

To me...and I say this unapologeticly....this is fucking hilarious. The only thing better would be shooting each other.

They should enforce the Constitution, not jew lawyer "laws!"

‘blue on blue violence’

in the old days, people were judgmental and there was societal disapproval

we need to all join together and encourage this self expression rather than scold and scorn

make cities a safe place for blue on blue

oprah and ellen and barbara the society of talk shows ethics

You know the global financial ponzi scheme is falling apart when they start eating their own:

D.C. swampsters, Hollywood pervs, Saudi terrorformers, FED grovelators, etc. We just need more elite puppetmasters to lose their organ / transfusion insurance.

They are just the protection arm. The real owners are upstream wearing the suits.

They said "the brass" will have no comment until next week.

I guess (seeing as how this is a Sunday and the start of the calendar week) that means Thanksgiving week, prolly Wednesday the 11:30PM ;-)

The brass will have no comments as long as they receive their brown envelopes and free stash.

Do the profits go into the pension fund?  [Outside-of-the-box is the only way anyone will get paid a pension in 10 years...]
