Wayne Co. Asst. Prosecutor Resigns over Baltimore Post

Tom Greenwood, Detroit News, May 1, 2015

An assistant Wayne County prosecutor resigned Friday after being disciplined for a Facebook message that said the way to end the violence in Baltimore was to shoot the protesters.

Criminal defense attorneys and a liberal statewide group said they were glad to see Teana Walsh leave the prosecutor’s office.

“You cannot be a member of law enforcement and decide you’re going to be judge, jury and executioner,” said Cliff Woodards II, a criminal defense attorney from Southfield.

Walsh, who was an assistant prosecutor for eight years, set off a firestorm by writing about the Baltimore riots on her Facebook page Monday night.

“Solution,” she wrote. “Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion. I don’t care what causes the protesters to turn violent . . . what the ‘they did it because’ reason is . . . no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.”

Walsh quickly deleted the post, but Woodards, who is friends with her on Facebook, took a screen shot of it and posted it on his page.

Fox 2 News learned about and reported on the post. As Progress Michigan and others railed against the comments, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office announced Friday that Walsh would resign.

Aaron Herskovic, a Southfield attorney, said his bigger concern is others in law enforcement who share Walsh’s attitudes but keep them hidden.

“Unfortunately, I think there are others in her former office who fall into that category,” he said.

Woodards shared Herskovic’s concerns. He said he also was alarmed by a divide over Walsh’s comment that is playing out over social media.

She is drawing support from many whites and law enforcement officials while blacks are criticizing her, Woodards said.

    Can I have her number? I’d like to take her out for drinks and have a nice chat about the whole thing.

    • Fatigued Tax Donor

      Roger that. She could prosecute me for being a naughty boy anytime she likes.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      Teana? Sounds like a black girl’s name. Nevertheless, I think I’m in love.

      • Rob

        My friend married a white girl whose name is Keisha. At first I thought she was a negress, but when I saw her pic she is white.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        I’ve run across white girls with more black sounding names, it’s not as rare as one would think. They’re usually working or lower middle class people, which I don’t mean as an insult or anything, it’s just what I’ve observed.

      • mikefromwichita

        Absolutely not, Teana is a Cali valley girl name. I know several- all blond and fair skinned.

      • Oingo Boingo

        It may be pronounced “Tee-na”.
        I once knew a “Deana”, pronounced “Dee-na”; as in, “Dean” —> “Deen”.

    • listenupbub

      I’d marry her and have nineteen kids and counting. We need more people like her.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Another reason why not to trust LE, the same things could be said of us or done to us if they had there way. Think About the USSR, China etc who murdered and jailed the innocent people, The Police.

    • Puggg

      Are you serious with this? Are you trying to pull my little curly tail? She’s talking about stopping rioting and rampages, not bringing back the Soviet Union.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Well who is on the bottom of the barrel in the USSA,Racists that’s who.Who was on the bottom in the tribe led USSR,whites.Be careful what you like, you might be next person who needs re-education .

      • bilderbuster

        Unfortunately Whitetrashgang has a good point about the LEOs.
        They may want to enforce the law when it comes to the Black rioters. But in Baltimore they followed orders instead of following the law. Will they follow orders when Whites are challenging the government and the orders are “shoot to kill”?
        My eyes don’t lie. I watched the film of those Baltimore cops getting pelted with rocks and bricks. Many were seriously injured and could have been killed by those animals yet they followed orders and stood down.

        • Sick of it

          Then they deserve to die. People who won’t fight to survive will not survive. I suppose they would follow orders and let their children be killed by the savages as well.

          • bilderbuster

            Lets hope not, but if their lives were in danger and they still followed orders not to shoot then think about how much easier it might be to open up and let er’ rip when given the order.
            I’m pretty sure if there’s an angry crowd of Whites there will be no “stand down” order. More likely the opposite will happen and the Whites will be met with force.

    • Do you think shooting looters/rioters is over-the-top?
      I don’t think it’s excessive – I think it’s justice served.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Well when they come for you I will put in a good word.

        • As a devout goodie-two-shoes, and avoider of police, I refuse to participate in riots.
          Rioters should be treated like the third-world pieces of crap that they are.
          Drop ’em right there where they stand in the street.

    • John Smith

      Let’s not forget that the Gestapo never had significant manpower to police the Reich thoroughly. It was by denunciations of citizens that they launched their investigations.

      • Lexonaut

        Russia the same.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    Memo to all public employees: Flash: Keep your opinions to yourself and don’t ever post anything controversial on Facebook. Never. Postings have resulted in so much trouble you’d think by now people would treat them like the plague. P.S. You don’t have “friends” on Facebook.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      You are telling public employees to submit to a witch hunt.

      • John Smith

        But it’s not necessarily govt. doing the hunting, but rather the SJWs.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          No matter. People who can withstand being targeted are needed.
          The more, the easier, too.

    • APaige

      And nothing is more controversial than the truth.
      Shooting would stop the looters.

    • Speedy Steve

      True that. Next time she can post on chimpmania.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      “A friend is just an enemy that wants something from you”. Wish I remembered where I saw that, because it’s 100% truth. The Soviet Union had nothing on us, THIS is the true police state. When will the knocks on the door and “disappearances” start?

      • Lexonaut

        ” When will the knocks on the door and “disappearances” start?”

        The knocks on the door began with Ferguson — DOJ put its 40-man civil rights flying squad on the ground when they put Eric Holder on the ground there.

        This being America, the equivalent of disappearances probably will take the form of civil rights prosecutions. You won’t vanish, you’ll just be sent to the gulag to re-education camp sensitivity training and then to prison.

        For lesser offenses you’ll be sued civilly so that even if you win your case you will be ruined financially by the process because, after all, this is America and we don’t believe in dictatorship.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          That is probably EXACTLY how it’ll happen. How depressing.

    • Lexonaut

      “Memo to all public employees: Flash: Keep your opinions to yourself and don’t ever post anything controversial on Facebook.”

      This applies to professionals as well. Many companies these days do their background checks using firms who know to check for relevant social media accounts. A future high paying career could be lost over making a harmless racial joke but failing to delete it before someone else captures it.

  • GB101

    She had to be forced out. Detroit must be kept safe for looters.

    • bilderbuster

      Detroit’s pretty safe from that kind of thing these days. They’ve already burned and looted everywhere except where they personally live and most aren’t stupid enough to burn down their own homes intentionally (unless it’s for the insurance which they don’t have).

    • Race Heretic

      We must secure the existence of our welfare and a future for riotous looting.

  • mikes2653

    She hasn’t said anything worse than the duke of Wellington did when he observed long ago: “pour la canaille, faut la mitraille” (for the mob, it is necessary to use grapeshot).

    This thought occurred to me as I watched television coverage of the violent disorder in Ferguson and Baltimore. A “whiff of grape” would have calmed things down mighty fast in both places. Riots will become more common the more often it is seen that there are no consequences for the rioters.

    • bilderbuster

      It should be obvious that that’s exactly what they intend to happen.

  • Red

    She is drawing support from many whites and law enforcement officials while blacks are criticizing her, Woodards said

    Slowly but surely. She shouldn’t have resigned though.

    • Xerxes22

      She was probably given a choice, resign or be fired. Resigning was the better of the two career wise.

      • Red

        It doesn’t make any difference. Her thoughts are already on record for all of the PC and Cultural Marxists. How does she save herself once she’s been labeled a heretic? She doesn’t. Her best option at this point is to be true to herself and stand up for what she believes.

        • Sick of it

          She could move to a more normal part of the country and be appreciated.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Woodards is black, she’s probably down with da bruthas and wouldn’t fare well anywhere else.

          • John Smith

            Do you have to accept “friend” requests on FB, or does it happen automatically? I don’t use that garbage.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I don’t know, I don’t have one either. No FaCIAbook for me, thanks!

          • Strider73

            I barely use FB, but I do know that you can choose both your friends and close friends. You are under no obligation to accept a friend request. You can also set restrictions on who can see your posts.

            Keep in mind that all of the above applies to personal pages. It’s possible businesses can require employees to “friend” all co-workers, or those in their division.

          • John Smith

            Idaho.

  • TomIron361

    They let her resign because she’s a real looker.

    • Race Heretic

      She’s a very attractive young woman, no doubt.

      • Jason Lewis

        Unfortunately the way she looks requires her to forfeit her opinion or face termination. If she looked different it wouldnt have been a issue.

        • Race Heretic

          If Tee’anna were a proud woman of color, she’d face no consequences.

  • Alexandra1973

    My mother still lives in the Detroit area, been trying to talk her into moving here to Ohio. If we’re going to see the “natives” get restless in the major cities, she needs to be out of harm’s way.

    • phillyguy

      If I were you , I would go there myself with a moving co. And get her out a.s.a.p.

      • Oingo Boingo

        And NOT to Toledo, Cleveland, Cincinnati or any other Boog smeared Ahia locale.

    • Ella

      Is she Polish? I heard that there is still a small Polish community in Detroit. I don’t know how they can survive under these diverse conditions.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        They survived being overrun by The Nazis so they can survive being surrounded by diversity. Of course occasional airdrops of supplies and weapons would help.

        • Rob

          Nazis are better than the DIE-versity crowds, which would not exist if the nazis did their duty.

          • Lexonaut

            I think you’d better get used to the fact that you can’t escape Jews, Rob. The Nazis were too weak to exterminate them completely, and that’s a fact. The Nazis just didn’t have what it takes.

            Jews are few in number, maybe ten million worldwide out of seven billion people, but they’re still firmly in charge, still making life really tough for people like you.

            You see, they’re everywhere. They’re under your bed. They’re keeping you from that Harvard scholarship you deserve. They run the banks, skimming the money that belongs to you and using it to ruin the world.

            And just as stupid blacks think all of their problems are the white man’s fault, smart whites like you blame everything on the Jews. Again, get used to it. At least you’re not rioting the way the Brownshirts did eighty years ago.

        • Ella

          Add the commies on the Eastern border too, and they did take out a million plus.

      • bilderbuster

        She must be awfully stubborn.
        I wouldn’t think she would need much convincing.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Toledo (less than two hours from the disaster which used to be Detroit) was once an OK place to live. I have no idea how it is now. But whatever you do with her, DO NOT park her anywhere even NEAR Cleveland! Cleveland is very rapidly becoming the NEXT Detroit. DH & I shook all that Northern Ohio schlitz off our shoes 13.5 years ago and have never looked back.

      • John Smith

        OH once fought MI for Toledo, if you can believe it.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Of course I believe it. Because, mandatory 8th grade State History. Does that even exist any more? (The required course, not the history.)

        • Oingo Boingo

          It was for river access to Lake Erie; NOT for who gets to rule another intentionally ruined Post-Industrial Boogtopia.
          Toledo actually USED TO BE a pretty happening city, until Jugears Johnson started The National Kissing Of Black Butt Festival in the middle ’60s.
          Stanley’s is still in Toledo and Kroger in most of Ahia carries their most excellent sausage.

          • Strider73

            I suspect even Max Klinger moved away a long time ago!

            Note: the actor who played him really is from Toledo.

  • Tannenbaum

    So this White woman is forced to resign because she says rioters should be shot. Meanwhile, a black Nebraska state senator says he’d shoot a cop and ask questions later…and he’s still in office.

    What’s wrong with this picture?

    • John Smith

      Negro privilege.

    • Lexonaut

      There’s nothing wrong with the picture. She’s out, he’s still in. Do you have a problem with social justice?

    • Germanic Depressive

      People don’t take it seriously when the obviously inferior speak in that way.

      They are frightened by the obviously superior doing the same, because a lot of peoples’ gravy train and parasite perch depend on whites not remembering that about themselves and acting accordingly.

  • superlloyd

    Compare her treatment to that of the idiot negro senator advocating shooting the police. More black idiot privilege as if there wasn’t enough already.

  • humura

    Too bad a sensible govt official resigns for proposing a reasonable solution to Black racist mob violence.

    • bilderbuster

      Just from her photo, I’m surprised she wasn’t purged long ago.
      In fact, she looks pretty young and I’m surprised she even got the job.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Someone probably wanted to get wif her, gomesayin?

  • dd121

    The one voice of reason gets shouted down by the leftist mob. Pathetic.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    “Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion,” Walsh posted.

    When America was a functioning, orderly country, still a nation of laws, this was understood:

    “Looters will be Shot.”

    On sight.

    Now, to even say that merits career and personal destruction.

    • Ella

      Most people were probably white, thus it was allowed.

      • bilderbuster

        And supported by the populace.

  • I disagree with her comment; flame-throwers would be more efficient. After that, they’d be afraid to “protest” again, and civilization would return to our cities.

    • John Smith

      Extra crispy, just like you get at KFC.

    • Strider73

      Flame throwers, bullets, arrows, spears, axes — whatever works.

  • Ograf

    Shooting looters has a long history and has applied to anyone who is looting. I myself think it would be a good way to protect businesses from being ruined and burned to the ground. Stores that are owned by hardworking honest people, They are the ones that should be guarding their establishments the way the Koreans did in LA.

  • pennawhytmn

    I take it she just wasn’t enough of a white apologist. She wasn’t “down with the cause”.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      The guy who tattled on her is black. She was friends with him on Facebook, so maybe she’ll learn something.

  • IKUredux

    Let me be perfectly clear, ALL Whites are racist. Every single one of us find you people disgusting. If we do manage to be friends with you, it is because we are able to hold back our repugnance of your hair, smell, and your stupidity. You are advised to be suspect of any White who claims to love blacks, and, defend them. Seriously, they are mentally ill. Right up there with transgendered freaks. No matter any brainwashing that occurs in this so called “United” states of america, TPTB will NEVER convince me that these freaks are anything but FREAKS.

    Sadly, in these days, the mentally ill are considered “normal”. They are not. Any person of any race who deliberately seeks out people of other races to date and mate with, obviously has a serious problem. To wit: they feel inferior. And, somehow, they feel that by bedding a person of another race, they can magically assume the characteristics that they do not have. That is f’d up.

    Bruce Jenner is also a freak. Yeah, yeah, show him the same compassion you would somebody, who thinks they are Napoleon.

    What is going on this country is not “progressive”. It is Roman Empire quality “regressive”.

    I hate this country. I no longer have allegiance to this country. Keep getting people like Roseanne Barr and Jamie Foxx to “sing” the National Anthem. Keep having American companies with whom I have always done business, tell me to stock up for Cinco de Mayo., which, as it turns out, is pronounced differently then the word mayo which stands for mayonnaise..

    I beg your indulgence, I wish to say that: I SO TOTALLY DON”T GIVE A F ABOUT ANY MEXICAN HOLIDAY, NOT NOW, NOT EVER!!!!!

        While on the one hand, I’m insulted. On the other hand, I agree.

      We have to be careful about comparing modern America to ancient Rome as we run the risk of being grossly unfair to the Romans.

        Ha! Good one.

    • Spikeygrrl

      “…they feel that by bedding a person of another race, they can magically assume the characteristics that they do not have.”

      In fairness, I must point out that in this statement one can substitute ANY personal trait and the statement still makes sense. Don’t we all — at least to some degree — choose mates who are strong where we are weak? That common-sense strategy, whether applied intentionally or subconsciously, increases the behavioral resources of the resulting household.

      One might even argue that mates with complementary strengths represent (koff koff) REAL “diversity.”

      • IKUredux

        You know what? I’m feeling really pissed off about what is happening to Whites in this world. Normally, I would not respond to your completely inane statement. First of all: the word is “cough”, COUGH. Hello! Do you not know how to spell? “Koff”, seriously?

        You know, I don’t know who you are. But, I suspect that you married a Black. And, now, you are not as confident in your partner as you would like to be. You are conflicted.

        I feel your pain.

    • Lexonaut

      “… tell me to stock up for Cinco de Mayo., which, as it turns out, is
      pronounced differently then the word mayo which stands for mayonnaise..”

      Your words suggest a parody holiday for school districts to ban as culturally insensitive … Cinco de Mayonaisse.

      It would be especially outrageous because the stuff is white. And who knows, it might have been made from brown eggs … which got whipped.

      • IKUredux

        Yeah. No. I was merely saying that once upon a time, before there were all these divergents in our country, that the word spelled “mayo” was pronounced as a dimunitive of the word for a condiment. I don’t want a parody of a holiday.

        I want NO celebration of a minor Mexican holiday in my country. I also want NO question about the pronunciation of the word “mayo” and what it stands for.

        • Lexonaut

          Better not move to Denver. For Cinco de Mayo the Mexican community will run cars five or six abreast at a slow walking pace down major streets and boulevards, just to anger the Gringos. The police don’t dare do anything.

  • BrotherWill

    lol. The Detroit police take 3 days to show up to murder scenes. I think they will be ok.

    • Reverend Bacon

      Yes, but there’s no deep pockets in homicide. In my 3rd-world-within-the-former-USA, they also take their time to do real police work, but if your car is parked a minute longer than it should be, it’s ticketed.

  • Michigan Patriot

    Is Aaron Herskovic Jewish ? If yes , that explains his pro-anarchy, pro-criminal bias ! Deport to Israel , pronto !

  • belajadevotchka2

    She should become a defense attorney now, specializing in defending Whites against charges of hate crimes and racism. She could also go into civil law litigating against companies that illegally replace White workers with 3rd worlders or Affirmative Action hires.

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    So? She can’t have, and express, an allegedly unpopular (and un-PC) opinion? Hope she doubles down on it and doesn’t apologize. It’s not like she’d get her job back anyway, and why grovel and snivel?

  • Rob

    ‘Walsh quickly deleted the post, but Woodards, who is friends with her on Facebook, took a screen shot of it and posted it on his page…’
    So her liberal friend buried her. WOW these liberals will fall over each other and try to bury each other just to look trendy and PC cool. Be careful who your friends are.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      He’s black, I just looked him up. She should’ve known better. Maybe she’ll learn something from this. Hopefully she’s not a ‘shark but I’m not too optimistic. She has that look, unfortunately.

      • Rob

        Oh I thought he was a white liberal traitor. I hope not for her sake and for the sake of the white race.

      • Yancy Derringer

        “She has that look.” No, she doesn’t. Not a fatty with tats, for starters. More significantly, she advocated for shooting looters, and havng been a Detroit prosecutor for several years, she’s seen plenty, enough to make smart decisions.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          I’ve known a lot of ‘sharks in my time and sorry, but to me she looks like one. Some people never learn. I am not certain about her, because I couldn’t find anything one way or another in a search, but lots of people never learn. Like the “Malcolm X scholar” that went to Haiti, got raped, and still came home blaming whitey for their behavior.

          Of course, I hope and pray I am wrong. I never, ever want to be right about that.

    • John Smith

      Social media is a dumb idea and so is saying what you think on it.

  • A Freespeechzone

    There you have it–looting IS condoned–that suggests defending against looters or even a robbery or burglary would be wrong.

    The fact is that negroes demand the ‘right’ to violence, robbery, looting, burning and murder without protest or response from victims.

    Moreover, they expect us to do nothing and just ‘lay down and die’ without a whimper.

    NEVER!

    • John Smith

      White free speech is worse than minority violence….

  • Lexonaut

    When I was a kid the national guard was called out for riots. They shot looters to bring them down, and they executed arsonists on the spot.

    We’re so much more understanding now … And I, for one, am greatly relieved. Who wants to live in a country that institutionalizes violence against rioters peaceful demonstrators?

  • Lee_CPA

    “Solution,” she wrote. “Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion. I don’t care what causes the protesters to turn violent . . . what the ‘they did it because’ reason is . . . no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.”
    .
    What she wrote was no different than what many of us expressed on these blogs on several occasions. Probably the only thing that protects us is the anonymity of the internet. There is not a doubt in my mind that if my boss found out about some of my not-so-politically-correct posts that my job would suffer. I mean, hell, my company just created a new affinity group for gays, lesbians and transgenders. It is getting harder and harder to keep my mouth shut at work.
    .
    When people can be forced to resign because we expressed a view that is contrary to the “politically acceptible” view, then we are one bad law from being prosecuted for “hate speech”. Don’t believe me, go to Europe and deny the Holocaust.
    .
    Sadly, I think this country’s greatness is behind her…..

    I’m disappointed that she apparently lost her nerve and took the post down.

    Hey, it’s only property. But next time we ought to provide free taxi service to the neighborhoods where the reigning politicians live. I’m down with that, brother.

  • slobotnavich

    Shooting looters has been the traditional means of dealing with them for hundreds of years throughout the world. It’s quick, effective, and stops rioting immediately, ultimately saving millions (sometimes billions) in property damage, personal injury, increased insurance premiums, and saving the (often only) retail outlets in poor neighborhoods. There’s really no effective alternative to stopping rioting and property destruction, save the use of that old military standby, CS tear and choking gas. One whiff of that stuff will sent the most dedicated and depraved rioter home to his mommy. It’s harmless and has no lethal after-effects, though it will make someone wish for a merciful and quick death.

    She has my support but she shouldn’t have deleted the post. That makes her look like she’s in the wrong.

    This is what always happens. Some European says something and then retreats, apologizes, retracts something. NO. Stand your ground. And tell these scum to piss off.
