(28606) Race Riots, Violence, Arrests, Detroit, 1943

Robert Cattone (17), Anthony Saraceno (18), Armando Mastantuono (20) and Aldo Trani (16) wait in a Detroit Police Station. The youths were convicted in the murder of Moses Kisks, an African American man, during the 1943 race riot.

Kisks was gunned down as he waited for a streetcar at the corner of Chene and Mack on Detroit's East Side. The racially motivated murder was particularly heinous due to a lack of remorse from the youths and their statements that they simply "wanted to have some fun."
