Police: Detroit inmate who stabbed deputy captured

A Detroit man, who stabbed an officer outside a courtroom and escaped wearing the officer's uniform, has been captured, authorities said.
The inmate, Derreck White, who also uses the name Abraham Pearson, was spotted walking in a Detroit neighborhood Monday night, said Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon.
Authorities said White attacked a deputy with a sharpened comb in front of two other inmates inside a holding cell at the Frank Murphy Hall Monday morning.

    Mr. White-Pearson needs to receive the maximum punishment available under the law. It's good that he was recaptured.
    Detroit is an actual manifestation of a terrifying what-if film.

      To hear CNN tell it, once you cross the state line into Ohio, you actually crossed over into Dante's inferno.

    Your fascination with my body functions is juvenile. One would think you've never had two wives divorce you, or buried a girlfriend.

    I agree with both earlier comments about Detroit and Ohio, hahahaha.
    My problem with this latest incident is the fact that the prisoner was only being escorted by one deputy. This must be against protocol and procedures?

    Having fun? You know I lost the capability to have children 12 years ago due to cancer; how utterly lovely of you to keep reminding me I can't have any more children. Thanks.
