A white man in suburban Detroit is on trial for allegedly shooting at a black teen who came to his porch for directions, reports Fox 2 Detroit.
Homeowner Jeffrey Zeigler is on trial for shooting at Brennan Walker on the porch of his Rochester Hills’ home.
On Tuesday, prosecutors showed surveillance video of Zeigler, a retired fireman, firing on the teen after he walked onto the porch and tried to knock on the door. The teen then runs away as Ziegler runs into frame and fires.
On the stand Tuesday a police officer testified that he asked Zeigler why he fired on the teen and got a chilling answer.
“I said sir, can you point out to me where he charged your door, at what point was he a threat?” said the officer said. “Mr. Ziegler at this point is just sitting there and I said you took aim at him. You know sir, can you respect what I do and just admit that you aimed your weapon at this young man. He took a big drink of water, he looked at me and he said, ‘I’m tired of being a victim.'”
Trump: I couldn’t have assaulted E. Jean Carroll because ‘she’s not my type’
On Monday, in an exclusive interview with The Hill in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump reiterated his denial of the rape allegation by advice columnist E Jean Carroll, suggesting that he couldn't have done it because he wouldn't have been sexually attracted to her.
"I'll say it with great respect," said Trump. "Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?"
Carroll has alleged that Trump forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s, saying that he "just went at it ... he pulled down my tights and it was a fight."

‘Forget you Paul’: Internet mocks former House Speaker for claiming Trump stands for the ‘forgotten man’
On Monday, the Washington Post reported on an interview between former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
Ryan continued to insist that he supports President Donald Trump, saying that 'didn't have the best relationship' with him but that 'he's taking on political correctness; he's taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they're being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to.'" He also pointedly refused to say whether Trump was a good role model for American children.
