Conservatives across the country are outraged after news broke that a United States Marine, who was shot by an intruder, has been arrested. Now, the dirty Detroit prosecutor who works for Wayne County has come under fire after the shocking charges against the Marine went public.
Joey Nelson, who is currently an active duty Marine, was shot by an armed thug at a Detroit-area home on Friday, January 5, 2018. According to the Marine’s father, Steve Nelson, his son was at the home with his fiance, his 3-week-old son, and a couple of friends when he heard a loud bang on the front door. What happened next was truly horrifying for all who were in the home.
Steve told Fox News 2 that the moment his son heard the banging on the door, he immediately reacted by cracking the door open after grabbing his gun. Joey reportedly yelled at the intruder to leave. A spokesperson for the Westland Police Department said that the home invasion suspect is 39-year-old Michael Wilson of Detroit. “I don’t know who he is; my son doesn’t know him; the owner of the home doesn’t know him,” Steve said of Wilson.
“He opened up the door because he was standing here in the yard,” Steve says. “Joey told him to get off his property, and at that time, Wilson produced a gun and started shooting at my son.” Joey’s father said his son was shot in the hip by Wilson as the bullets went flying into the house, where Joey’s son, fiance, and friends were standing.
Joey called 911 before telling everyone to go downstairs and firing back at Wilson. When police arrived, Wilson had already fled the area. In my opinion, the young Marine had every right to protect his life and the lives of his loved ones. Unfortunately, the prosecutor who works for Wayne County didn’t see it that way.
The prosecutor’s name is Kym Worthy, and she should be investigated immediately for corruption and bias against our military. Joey Nelson was arrested and charged with multiple felonies, including assault with intent to commit murder. The home invasion suspect, Michael Wilson, was only charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
A spokesperson from the Westland Police Department said that the incident happened as a result of a fight over a mutual female friend inside the home. Police also charged a female who was present inside the home named Kori Willhite of Garden City for disguising her identification to a police officer and possession of improper prescription drugs. It is unknown whether this is the same female that police claim there was a fight over, resulting in the shooting.
Joey’s father angrily voiced his frustration with the situation, pointing out, “This man out here in the front yard fired multiple shots into a house with multiple people inside and a 3-week-old baby.” He added, “And he’s only charged with concealing a weapon illegally?”
Now, Joey’s family is dumbfounded that he’s the only one sitting in jail on a $150,000 cash bond. Wilson was let off easy on a $5,000 bond and has likely already posted bail.
Steve Nelson said his son shouldn’t have been criminalized for doing what was right. “He should be hailed a hero for defending his family,” Steve explained, and I could not agree more.
What the heck is wrong with the prosecutor and why is she being allowed to exercise what is obviously an extreme prejudice for our military by bringing such erroneous charges against Joey Nelson? People need to start contacting Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder and demanding some answers.
If Snyder refuses to step in and have Kym Worthy investigated, then the matter should be taken to a federal level. Joey Nelson should not be sitting in jail. The fact that the prosecutor is trying to stick Joey with multiple felonies is a heinous abuse of power.
What is Worthy’s agenda? Why would she so openly display such contempt for a member of our military? One clue was found on her Twitter page, where she posted a picture of four black women who were photographed wearing shirts which read, “Stay Woke.”
The phrase “Stay Woke” has been a war cry for the domestic terrorist group Black Lives Matter. They use it as a watchword to encourage black activists to continue their fight against law enforcement and conservatives. Ultra-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) infamously used the phrase when addressing a crowd at a speaking engagement last year, where she also said, “I will go and take out Trump tonight,” according to The Gateway Pundit. Waters caused a firestorm of outrage with her threats against President Donald Trump.
Prosecutor Worthy is apparently coming from the same ideological background as Congresswoman Waters. This shouldn’t be tolerated, and if the FBI wasn’t rotted from the inside out, they might actually launch an investigation into Kym Worthy. It’s time for this Marine-hating prosecutor to be relieved of her position.
