· Civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton gave the eulogy Saturday for a 7-year-old girl killed in a police raid, challenging the hundreds of mourners to take responsibility and help stop a spiral of violence that has swept the city.
· Sharpton lobbed some criticism at Detroit police, whose explanation of how Aiyana Stanley-Jones died from a gunshot has been contradicted by the girl's family.
· But he mostly offered a broad cultural message to a city where at least three children and an officer have been killed in recent weeks.
o "I'd rather tell you to start looking at the man in the mirror. We've all done something that contributed to this. This is it. This child is the breaking point."
· The congregation stood and applauded Sharpton, the final speaker at a nearly two-hour service that included stirring gospel music and remarks from clergy at Second Ebenezer Church.
· Aiyana was shot in the neck while sleeping on a couch May 16.
