Bing bans TV crews from cop raids | | The Detroit News

Bing bans TV crews from cop raids | | The Detroit News: "Cameras from the true-crime television show 'The First 48' were rolling the morning of May 16, when the police department's Special Response Team, looking for a murder suspect, executed a raid on an eastside flat that ended in tragedy.
Officers threw a flash grenade through the front window before rushing into the flat on Lillibridge Street about 12:40 a.m. Details of what happened next have varied.
According to the police, when Officer Joseph Weekley entered the front room, he had some form of physical contact with 46-year-old Mertilla Jones. The officer's gun went off, piercing the neck of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was sleeping on the living-room couch. She was dead on arrival at St. John Hospital.
Aiyana's family has refuted the police version, saying Mertilla Jones made no contact with Weekley, and that after the shooting, officers took her into custody and held her for 12 hours, testing her hands to see if there was any gunpowder on them, before releasing her.
Bing said he has seen the film footage of the incident, but that it showed nothing conclusive."
