CLARA HILL IS CERTAIN the boys didn’t kill anybody. She has known since she was 14 years old – almost three decades ago. But when she tried to tell police the truth, she says, they hurt her.

It was the spring of 1987, when Hill was seized by the Detroit Police Department and dragged to a dark room to be questioned about the murder of a young man named Leonard Ruffin, shot to death in front of a crack house in the West Side of the city. Three of Hill’s teenage friends, who managed the crack house with Ruffin, were being accused of plotting his murder. But Hill insisted that this wasn’t true. She was with them at the time. But it didn’t matter...

I'll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. "I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs."
"I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking."
"Hey, wait a minute, there's one guy holding out both puppets!"
"Shut up! Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control."-BH

I wonder if the victim was related to the Ruffin brothers of motown fame? I've been fascinated with David especially ever since I read about his death from an "adverse drug reaction" from crack. For anyone who doesn't know he was the lead singer for the Temptations during their greatest period.

There's a pretty good book called "The trials of white boy Rick" that covers the Detroit PD and the drugs trade-it's well worth tracking down.

P.S. It might even be on kindle.
