    The pistol-toting 'Angel of Mercy' that saved a driver from an angry Detroit mob Rea

    "Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books...Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. And my children will."

    I'm just glad they recognized her for what she did. I'd like to think that more people would do the same thing if put in that position. However, the "150 people" standing around watching it happen, clearly prove otherwise.

    As a former childhood resident of Detroit & being in the area for decades, it has been sad to watch it slide into decay. However, Detroit has some people who still do give a damn & stand up for what is right! God bless them all!

    Right on!
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Dang. 150 people in mob mentality. I don't know many people that would have the cajones to stand out there with a pistol and know they can only stop maybe 12-20 people, depending on my magazine. I hope the man recovers, as it appears he was coming back to help, seemed remorseful, and didn't try to take off or anything like that!

    The story lacks a large amount of detail, but I am assuming from the interview and the mention of racial motivation against a white victim that the assailants were primarily black? TBH, As a young(ish) white man, I would have stopped and thought a minute about whether it was smart for me to step in on my own. If what was implied is true, I'm sure this woman being an older black female was a portion of what kept the people at bay. Somebody like me likely would have just added fuel to the fire.

    What she did definitely deserves respect!
