Detroit Police Stop in Liquor Store Lot Finds Gun Now Inner City Press on Federal Case

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

FEDERAL COURT, Dec 30 – Detroit Police were on patrol on August 15 when, according to Federal Special Agent Jimmy Pharr, they spotted a man with a gun. They stopped him, and after he did not produce a pistol license, arrested him.

Then the case went Federal.

  On December 30 Markalowe Keith Steen appeared before U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan Magistrate Judge Patricia Morris. Inner City Press covered it.  

The complaint says this all took place in the Grand Cru Liquor Store parking lot, located at 5412 W. Warren Avenue in Detroit.

Only three days ago, there was a police report of a person hit with a bottle in that parking lot, see report on the Citizen app, here.   

Lawyer Benton Martin asked to get a copy of the Detroit Police report, which he had yet to see. Judge Morris encouraged that it be produced.

  The case had gone Federal because Steen has a previous felony: the charge is Felon in Possession.

Steen asked to speak but was cautioned against it. He nevertheless said he is requesting a speedy trial.

The case is US v. Steen, 20-mj-30397 (EDMI)  Click here for, on Patreon, more on this proceeding and others on the same day, including (in DC District) RED LAKE BAND OF CHIPPEWA INDIANS, 1:20-cv-03817:

the US Army Corps of Engineers decision to let Enbridge Energy to build a  330-mile pipeline for tar sands oil from Canada is being sued in DC Dist by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians & White Earth Band of Ojibwe.

 US says it has not been served. The papers are in the mail, but USPS says they won't arrive until January 5. Judge (this is in DC District) says she can move fast, because of COVID she is not going anywhere. She asks the parties to agree to a briefing schedule

Assistant US Attorney says the Corps of Engineers people are on vacation, unreachable. They want more time. Judge: Are they going to be back on Monday? AUSA: That would be the first day. This permit may have a truly massive record, including state litigation.

Judge: I was reversed some years ago for doing a TRO without getting the administrative record in. It's local rule 7(10)(1), it's gotten better. Has there been other litigation? Plaintiffs' counsel: Yes, at the state level. And under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act.

 Plaintiffs' counsel: It's in the Minnesota Court of Appeals.  Judge: So we'll talk once you reach the Army Corps of Engineers. Like I said
