Family members of a former track star are searching for answers after the young man’s life wastrack star cυt short last week.

Dakarie McKinnie, 20, was gunned down Friday night after leaving work and heading to his girlfriend’s house. His mother, Laverne McKinnie, attributes her son’s death to the breakdown of society.

“It’s just not enough love and respect in this world anymore,” said McKinnie. “My child is gone and these monsters took him from me.”

Dakarie graduated from Mumford High School in 2011 and received a track scholarship to a community college in Texas. He was taking classes to become a heating and air conditioning technician. He’d also just gotten a job at a Chrysler plant after learning that his girlfriend was pregnant.

“These monsters took him from us and his unborn child,” his mother said as tears streamed down her face.

The crime rate in Detroit is partly due to budget cυts, with even the city’s police chief admitting that he was almost the victim of a crime. Chief James Craig told the audience at an anti-carjacking event last year that he was almost the victim of a carjacking.

“There are certain cars each suspect tends to (be attracted) to, and I guess they liked my police car — a police car with lights,” Craig said, according to The Detroit News. “And one suspect jumped out and began running toward the passenger side of my vehicle … As soon as I saw the suspect running to my car, I accelerated out of harm’s way.”
