Guns Down, Gloves Up: Detroit’s Car Wash Fight Club


In Detroit, a city known for one of the highest murder rates in the country, some residents have lost faith in the ability of their law enforcement to keep the streets safe from gun violence.

We traveled to Detroit to see how an underground fight club run out of a local car wash has taken matters into its own hands by allowing rivals to settle their “beefs” before the violence gets out of control.

    i played football in the 90s in florida and this is how we settled up when u had beef within the team we got gloves went in locker room and threw down just like these dudes we hugged it out and squashed it when we were done it works on so many levels like bro said u can get ko and get up vs gettin shot and someone dies they do something similar in VA called streetbeefs and that too helped save lives

    Way to go cops, bust up the place that is putting some positivity into the community. "The smell of burnt rubber" is your concern??? If the cops wanted to do community oriented policing and actually make a positive change in the city they work for, maybe they could ask to attend an event? Maybe do an event for charity where cops box as well? Maybe help cordon off the block during events to make it a safe space and allow them a safe space to have these events? Stop treating people like crap and you may be treated a little better by the communities you serve. Key word "serve". Police officers forget what the purpose of their job really is.

    Cops don't want you gathering, when you gather you become stronger. They want you separated to remain weak. They want you to kill each other off, it's how the system was built.
