    Man sentenced for attacking Black neighbors’ Warren home


    Mount Clemens – A white neighbor who shot at a Black family’s home, slashed tires on a vehicle and wrote racist graffiti on a pickup truck, told a judge Monday that he did it because of a Black Lives Matter sign in the window.

    Michael Frederick Jr. said during his sentencing in Macomb County Circuit Court that his actions weren’t an attack on Eddie and Candace Hall “personally.”

    “I targeted these people because I didn’t like their political sign that they had in the window,” he said. “I think you guys are some great people and didn’t deserve this at all.”

    Frederick, 25, was sentenced to four to 10 years in prison, according to The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens.

    Shots were fired in September at the Halls’ home in Warren, which borders Detroit. Two days later, a swastika was painted on one of their vehicles, tires were slashed and a large stone was thrown through their front window. Someone also had written “terrorist Black Lives Matter,” “not welcome” and a phrase containing an expletive on their pickup.
