Deadly flowerpot

Deadly flowerpot

Detroit Police Offi­cer Willie Soles was work­ing secu­rity that day when the guy with the flow­er­pot strut­ted up the stairs and into the main lobby area. It was 12:45 Fri­day after­noon, one of the hottest sum­mer days that Willie could remem­ber. The guy with the flow­er­pot was wear­ing khaki shorts and a white shirt with rings of sweat under his armpits. Willie could see the guy’s eyes, calm, maybe a lit­tle tired as he tried to hand over the flow­er­pot, telling Willie that he’d found it in his mother’s gar­den. Willie see­ing the hand-​grenade dug into the dirt.

It was 12:45 Friday afternoon, one of the hottest summer days that Willie could remember. The guy with the flowerpot was wearing khaki shorts and a white shirt with rings of sweat under his armpits.
