Pot Kettle White

According to a story published yesterday at MLive, images have been recorded of three white supremacists who painted hate speech over a mural in Ann Arbor:

The suspects, caught on surveillance cameras, are described as three white men in their early 20s, said Ann Arbor Police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige…. The racist graffiti was discovered Sept. 16 in an alley off the 600 block of East Liberty Street. “Free Dylann Roof, I Hate N******” was painted in red over a mural in the alley.

It took me a minute to figure out why Lt. Lige’s name sounded familiar—his treatment of Black patrons at Ann Arbor’s now-shuttered Dream Nite Club:

That during the football season of 2009 … Sgt. Matthew Lige stated in the premises to Reese Mangray, manager: “Fuck you and fuck these ni**ers. I will shut this place down.” This was said on a Saturday night where the clientele were predominantly black.
