I know this will come as a shock to cop haters but #blacklivesmatter took a beating Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore.
There were no police beatings, no unarmed blacks shot by police, no conspiracy to racially profile blacks, no riots, no white Darren Wilsons to falsely blame for a black teen felon’s death, not even a black cop driving a police vehicle with an arrested black drug dealer like Freddie Gray in the back.
We know all about Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Can anyone name any blacks murdered in the past few days in Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, or [insert urban indoctrination center here]?
In Baltimore alone, 38 people have been killed in May alone. These murders took place after the rioters were given exactly what they demanded—the mass arrest and indictment of six local cops in Freddie Gray’s death—one charged with intentional murder.
Stringing up the police lets criminals hang loose. It’s not like they didn’t know this would happen.
Many of the cities that had already castrated their officers suffered a tremendous increase in black- on -black crime.
It appears Baltimore’s war with itself is just getting started.
- School’s out.
- Summer’s soon here.
- The President, Attorney General, Mayor, States Attorney, Congressman Elijah Cummings, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, the city council, the Crips and Bloods are all for the police not enforcing law and order.
- Arrests are down 50%.
- Crime is up 60% in Baltimore.
- Police morale is in the sewer according to cops both on and off the force. They have been beaten down to the point where they are in complete protection mode—not for the citizens, but for themselves.
That’s just the start of the death spiral.
Remember the stand-down order given by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings- Blake? She also is responsible for forcing police to give rioters “…space to destroy,” and then limited protective garb of the police.
Result? One hundred of Baltimore’s finest were hospitalized from injuries incurred by the “destroyers” as approved by the mayor.
The picture of these thugs throwing bricks, concrete blocks and rocks as the police ran backwards with ill-equipped protective gear had to be the last straw for many of these law enforcers.
How many cops want to risk going through what Ferguson’s Darren Wilson had to and is still enduring? Wilson was cleared by a grand jury and Eric Holder’s Justice Department, as he was ruled well within his rights to kill Michael Brown before Brown killed him. Yet he remains for all intents and purposes in hiding.
Brown on the other hand has a plaque embedded near the spot where he was killed in the process of trying to murder Officer Wilson after he had committed several felonies just fifteen minutes earlier.
The result of forcing police to become a mop-up, unengaged gaggle has emboldened heavily armed street gangs like the Crips, the Bloods and the New Black Panthers. They have filled the vacuum of legitimate law enforcers. However, their concerns are not with the protection of those peaceful people who need it in the neighborhood. The gangs have been let loose to protect their drug business and attack their enemies. Those who get caught in the crossfire — tough luck.
As the arrested and disgraced Baltimore police officers fight to get the trial moved to where they haven’t already been convicted, a blurb just crossed my eyes:
State Attorney Marilyn Mosby has agreed to be the ringmaster in a circus this Friday.
Baltimore is a circus. It will be a long hot summer under the Big Top. At least the morgue and undertakers will be busy.
