John Conyers, Jr.
"The tragic beating of Steve Utash has left Detroiters asking how such a senseless act could occur, let alone in one of our neighborhoods. I have full confidence that the Detroit Police Department and Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office will conduct a comprehensive investigation to resolve this deeply troubling case and determine whether state or federal hate crime laws are implicated by the incident. My heart goes out to the family of Mr. Utash, and I will be in touch with them in the coming days.”
