DETROIT PRIEST CALLS GAY MARRIAGE ‘SACRAMENTAL’

A priest in the Detroit archdiocese is calling gay marriage “sacred and sacramental,” and insists the Church “needs more examples of gay holiness.”

Father Ronald Victor, pastor of St. Isidore Catholic Church in Macomb, Michigan, made the remarks while attending the wedding of his gay nephew Bryan Victor earlier this summer. As reported Tuesday by the Detroit Free Press, he said of the couple, “They are two very holy guys. I do see their union as being sacred and sacramental, in the sense that it reflects God’s love. … While it’s not necessarily life-giving in a biological way, it’s life-giving in other ways.

Police have arrested four men from the Detroit area for credit card fraud in Northeast Wisconsin. The men are facing multiple charges, including Fraud Against a Financial Institution and Credit Card Forgery, according to the Appleton Police Department. On Oct. 26, Appleton Police received a report of suspicious credit card transactions at a local store. An employee told officers a group of men using multiple credit cards came in to buy gift cards.  The employee recognized that as suspicious behavior and took down a description of the suspects and a license plate number. Investigators found out the group had moved to the Green Bay area, where they had purchased more gift cards and a large amount of cigarettes. Green Bay police located the suspects, and Appleton investigators obtained a search warrant for their vehicle. Police say one of the suspects had a large number of gift cards and cigarettes. Another suspect admitted to buying stolen credit card information and a card reader with the intention of shopping the cards in the Fox Cities. Three of the suspects are from Ferndale, Michigan, and one of the suspects is from Detroit. The suspects are due in court at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Councilman to hold press conference Wednesday on new crime-fighting technology being used in Detroit

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

7 Action News is expecting to learn more Wednesday, September 23, about a form of crime-fighting technology Detroit police have been using for about a year now. The technology is called Shotspotter and it’s been credited with helping police in cities across the country. Detroit Councilman Scott Benson will host a press conference this afternoon. The Detroit Police Department installed the Shotspotter program over a year ago. It detected more than two dozen shots fired in the first week. Here’s how it works. Microphones covered in weatherproof casing are placed in spots with high crime. When a shot is fired the sensors relay information to police to help them originate the area where the shots came from by sending them real-time GPS data. That data then takes police to a small area that enables them to track down activity faster.
