Detroit Arrests

Quinn Klinefelter of member station WDET reports on a class action lawsuit that accuses the Detroit Police Department of routinely arresting witnesses in murder cases in an effort to get them to testify. Detroit police arrest an average of three people in every homicide case, a rate that's much higher than the national average. Yet fewer than half the city's murder cases are solved.
