Bug-Infested Witness Shuts Down Detroit Court Room

CBS Detroit, August 23, 2012

A court room in Detroit’s 36th District Court is closed after officials say a bug-infested man showed up for proceedings.

Judge Cylenthia Miller chose to evacuate the court and send her staff home after a bailiff spotted the man with insects crawling on him.

His daughter told the Detroit News he has a bedbug problem at his home, but a court staffer talking to WWJ Newsradio 950 said it’s not yet clear what kind of bugs were on the man—indicating that they also could have been cockroaches or fleas.

  • Rocky Bass,

    Just another bit of cultural diversity. In many counties what we consider “civilization”, is just too difficult to attain. Nature boy here was just living his respective “primal life”, just as nature intended.

      The only surprising part was that the other blacks were disgusted enough to clear the courtroom.

      In about 20 years this will be a common occurrence and most Detroit blacks will just shrug it off.

      • Rocky Bass,

        After watching your video link Lucas, I have a different take on this.
         Perhaps we should not be judgmental, these folks are just trying a new form of farming. With proper “cultivation” it might be they could lessen their dependence on white taxes to eat.

      • That was cruel to the monkey. He looked disappointed and listless after he didn’t find a meal. He would have had a feast with this Detroit guy.

    this is as funny as a barrel full of monkeys…

  • Rocky Bass,

    What might the welfare implications be, when every man may constitute a colony?

  • Chimp Master Rules

    I take it insects lack a basic sense of smell?

    QUOTE:  “indicating that they also could have been cockroaches or fleas.”

    Fleas, possibly. Most likely head lice.  Maggots, possibly, especially if the simian likes fried chicken and was keeping on on his person for a later snack.

    But cockroaches?   Doubtful

    I’m fascinated by this case.  They never cease to amaze me in their ability to discover a new low.

    •  I once saw a man walking around with a cockroach running in circle on his back (probably prisonner of some weird pheromone), so there …

      • The Worlds Scapegoat

         Mexican kids at my elementary school had cockroaches on them several times. The Mexican kids didn’t wash, so they stunk, and the teacher put them in a corner so they wouldn’t make the other kids throw-up.  Every time you heard a girl scream and run out of the class, you knew one of the Mexikids had a cockroach on them.

  • Just adding to Judge Cylenthia LaToye Miller’s Detroit diversity.

    I hope he didn’t discriminate against certain types of bugs and let all that wanted to infest him infest him because discrimination is evil.

  • When I first gleaned over this story on Drudge, my eyes only caught “bugs in Detroit court room.”

    If anyone needed to catch on to the anti-racism is code for anti-white message, it is Detroit.

    Then I read the rest of the story and found out it was about a “man” infested with literal insects.

    • Rocky Bass,

      I admire the bedbugs or whatever this man was host to, as only they have ever successfully been supported by a black! Pity black children have not yet evolved this capability.

      • KenelmDigby

        The insects are unlikely to be bedbugs, since bedbugs are stricly nocturnal and flee the host after feeding. Also unlikely to be cockroaches as the story says, since cockroaches are not blood sucking parasites.
         More likely to be fleas or lice – mostly likely lice since fleas are smaller and more evasive, head or body lice.
         In western nations lice were virtually completely eradicated due to the development of powerful organic chemical pesticides in the 19th and 20th centuries, so accounts of body lice being seen today are always shocking.
         Accounts of the stressed conditions of the trenches of WW2 talk of lice running through armies like ‘wildfire’. Due to extremely high reproductive rates, lice are able infest whole armies of thousands of men in astonishingly short time.

    The insects of Detroit are doing recon…they know they will inherit the city soon…

    • Rocky Bass,

       You’re right on the money there! After the EBT cards quit being filled, and cannibalism has ran it’s course, that would be the logical endpoint.

    • KenelmDigby

      As many have claimed only cockroaches (which are able to withstand astonishing levels of radiation), will survive a nuclear holocaust.

      • I beg to differ. I think that water bears, microscopice organisms also known as tartigrades; and who have been found in deserts, ocean beds, mountaintops, forests and polar regions will also withstand a nuclear holocaust.

      • Rocky Bass,

         Perhaps that was the plan all along! Maybe these folks are really the smart ones and are growing their own biological radiation suits. If enough cockroaches or similarly “shelled” insects covered a body…

  • IstvanIN

     Terrific post, had me rolling in the aisle.  I think it would be less tongue twisting to just call them Infested-Americans.  Ah the joys of living in a hyphenated nation.

  • Rocky Bass,

     Unfortunately, we have far too many taxpayer funded “Little Africa” exhibits, from coast to coast.

  • Rocky Bass,

     Would there also be conflict between the differing host groups? Would bedbug-infested-Americans not get along with lice-infested-Americans and would it be such that it only mattered if a white was involved? Could the chargas-infesteds shoot 80 bedbugers a weekend, with no news coverage and one licer accidentally getting hit in traffic by a  white become headline news?
    My head hurts.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

       Will whites get called insectists for not wanting to be covered in insects?

    • RisingReich

       Lol I can see where you are headed with this.  No – they will all be urged to strive to be ‘equally-infested’.  So the lice infested will be asked (first), then by law required to ‘share’ these ‘diverse benefits’ each infested being brings to the table.

      The end result is everyone will have chargas, lice, bedbugs, and whatever other parasites exist.

      We’re all slowly becoming ‘equally-infested’.  Some by malfunction of idealism, some others are forced to by law or inescapable environmental issues, but sadly and slowly we’re all ‘equally-infested’.

    His daughter told the Detroit News he has a bedbug problem at his home…

    I guess ‘home’ must be in the Botswana section of DIE-troit because they don’t have showers there either. And even if they did, it wouldn’t occur to them to actually use them.

    • Carney3

      In fairness, it’s harder to get rid of bed bugs than simply taking a shower.  But yeah, if I had ’em, I’d do whatever it took.

  • KenelmDigby

    This story must be seen in the light of the higher symbolism that it invokes.

  • JackKrak

    “Judge Cylenthia Miller”

    This is the part that makes my skin crawl…..

  • haroldcrews

    Why didn’t he just falsely claim disability like most of his brethren do?  Though I appreciate his inventiveness his strategy has significant downside for more than just the taxpayers.  Still nature wins out and it is justice in a sense, a parasite getting parasites.

  • KenelmDigby

    As the old saying goes “Even big fleas have little fleas on their backs to bite ’em, so ad infinitum”.

  • This guy sounds like a MOVE refugee from Philadelphia.

    Seriously, WHAT OTHER race of people would just tolerate insects crawling all over themselves, and doing nothing?

  • How about HALFs?

    Host of Arthropod Life Forms.

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    “Will Filthoid-Americans stage hate crime hoaxes, claiming that
    heterosexual white males have unfairly stripped them naked (erk!),
    washed their clothes (ugh!) and scrubbed them down (eww!)?”

    I sense another holohoax coming.
