    Let it Rip Weekend: Mayoral race and EM's 'dumb & lazy' comment

    Monday, August 5 2013 8:20 AM EDT2013-08-05 12:20:25 GMT
    We take on the race for Detroit Mayor and the controversial comments by Detroit's EM calling Detroiters "dumb, lazy, happy and rich."
    A new poll shows Mike Duggan leading in the race for Detroit Mayor. Could those dirty tricks against him actually be paying off in his favor? Duggan supporter and community activist Malik Shabazz thinks
It's the brutal beating making headlines around the world.  A man from Roseville stops his truck after accidentally hitting a young boy in Detroit.  But immediately, he's attacked by a mob of people who nearly kill him.  He's still in bad shape at the hospital.  The boy is recovering, and police have made arrests in the beating.  But some ask why there isn't more outrage in Detroit about this, especially because the victim was white and the suspects are black.  If the situation were reversed, would this be characterized as a hate crime?  Would outside figures be coming to the area for protests?  We talk about it with the Rev. David Bullock of the Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church, State Representative Alberta Tinsley- Talabi (D-Detroit) along with noted conservative and radio personality Jim Johnson.

Also, the victim, Steve Utash, has mounting medical bills because he has no health insurance.  Thousands of generous people have already donated money to a fund that's helping the family pay the extremely high cost of the ICU at St. John Medical Center.  If you'd like to join them and give what you can, follow this link.

Also, it's the conversation between a minister, a police chief, and a political consultant that sparked a full-blown FBI investigation.  The Feds want to know if there was any criminal activity involved in some recent votes by Detroit City Council.  Joining us is the political consultant at the center of it all, Adolph Mongo.  He and Fox 2's Charlie Leduff tell us the real story of what was said and who the FBI may be looking at.
