"Criminalizing Black Corpses": No Charges Filed After White Man Kills Detroit Teen Renisha McBride - Anger is growing in the Detroit area over the killing of Renisha McBride, a 19-year-old African American woman who was shot dead by a white homeowner on his front porch. Her family says she died as she was seeking help after a car accident. The homeowner told police he believed McBride was trying to break into his home, but he claimed his gun accidentally fired at her. No charges have been filed. An autopsy revealed McBride was shot in the face by a shotgun, but not at close range. We are joined from Detroit by Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations; and by dream hampton, a writer, activist and filmmaker.
