FBI Investigates Death Threat Made Against Detroit Police Chief James Craig

DETROIT — It’s not easy making friends in one of America’s most dangerous cities.

Since becoming chief of the Detroit Police Department in July, James Craig has become a thorn in the side of criminal enterprises after making five highly publicized drug sweeps and averaging 35 weekly raids.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Craig received a death threat via social media Friday.

“We need to clap him out,” Craig said the man wrote, which is slang for shooting someone to death.

Craig spoke defiantly about the threat Sunday, saying he would not be deterred.

“We will find you,” Craig said, “and we’re going to dismantle your criminal enterprise.”

Federal authorities are investigating whether on-duty Detroit police provided limo service and security to a swanky sex club a few blocks from the department’s Central District headquarters, the Detroit News reports.

Citing sources familiar with the probe, the Detroit News wrote that a federal investigation is underway following complaints about police helping the swingers’ club while on duty.

“The feds were asking me about a group of officers who supposedly were giving limo service to people at this sex club while they were on duty,” one Detroit police official told the Detroit News. “The big sticking point they were concentrating on was whether the officers were on-duty when they were driving people to and from this club.”

The probe began following complaints that the Forest Club was selling alcohol without a license.
