Check out this article about the Cass Corridor by journalist George Hunter in The Detroit News. The damage to children and teens in the Cass Corridor of Detroit is incalculable. I remind readers that Ike McKinnon of the Detroit PD gave pedophile monster Richard Lawson a badge in the 1970s and considered Lawson a great informant. How many pedophiles and child abusers did you bust, Ike? I’m guessing the answer is pretty close to zero.
This story is heartbreaking. Described as a “magnet for child predators,” the Cass has a horrific history. “When the Oakland County Child Killer case was rekindled in the mid-2000s, investigators learned about pedophile rings that operated in the Cass Corridor.” (Emphasis mine). Surprise, surprise, gentlemen. And as most of my readers know, that shit bled into good old Oakland County, which in many ways was no better than the Corridor. And we can’t forget, like investigators did, about the goings on at Frank Shelden’s house of horrors on N. Fox Island during this era.
