BTW the economic status in that city is all YOUR fault for not "investing " in the community and therefore the them poor people are forced to live in poverty

 

I actually heard them say that last night

And it is the republicans fault for 50 years of failed democratic policies.... G W Bush in particular.

 

We will rebuild Baltimore through our tax dollars. Heavy local government incentives will bring back the businesses. And more subsidies to the populace to continue doing what they do.

 

I had read that this, like Ferguson, was based on a lie. Reportedly, Mr. Freddie Grey was in a car accident a while back and had spinal surgery the week before arrest. Doctors ordered bed rest for 3-4 weeks, but this entrepreneur deems himself fit to continue his undocumented street corner pharmaceutical practice. Money should not have been an issue, he received a structured settlement from the insurance company, which he tried to convert to a lump sum. Now a fellow inmate has come forth and said he feared Grey was trying to hurt himself while incarcerated. Again, reportedly, as what is factual and what is in the media can be two very different things. And stories like this come and go online as they do not fit the narrative. Conspiracy? Maybe...

 

The incidences in Ferguson and Baltimore are not the reason for the riots, they are merely an excuse. As one eloquent young man put it, "What do you expect when you cage up an animal?" An animal? That is how you describe yourself fighting for a cause? That is how you see yourself? All those civil rights pioneers must be so proud...

 

I am not sure this is about race anymore, race is merely a socially acceptable, sellable cause. My gut tells me this has more to do with class warfare than anything. Much like the Occupy Wall Street movement, people want what others have without the sacrifice. Why loot neighborhood businesses that you depend on? Because they have more stuff than you and a fatcat business owner can afford it. Choices we make determine our outcome. Are you going to put $5000 worth of rims on that rusted out 1982 Oldsmobile Ciera, or are you going to invest it in something worthwhile...like your education or a legitimate business enterprise? Use wisely your power of choice....

complete leadership failure.

 

too slow to call in the guard, too much freedom given to the protestors, too slow declaring and enforcing curfiew, police told to stand down, police vehicles left vunerable, exposed, unguarded.

 

a single infantry squad with authority of lethal force, could have quelled the whole mess. i expect a single engagement would have cleared the streets.

Use of US military force against it's own citizens? That there is one slippery slope towards third worldivity. Taken to the ridiculous extreme...what if HD has better lobbyists than Polaris? Once you open those floodgates anything is possible. There are proponents of the state religion of Climate Change that have spouted that deniers (or smart people) need to be put to death, incarcerated, stripped of possessions, deported or whatever. Or the race pimps that advocate death to those not of their ilk (no matter the color, you have race pimps). Once Muslims reach critical mass, can they petition for death for Jews, or for that matter Christians?

 

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

 

As a nation, we have allowed this to happen. We have allowed people to pick our pockets in the name of "compassion". We have allowed our rights to be taken from us without so much as a whimper. Have we done our founding fathers justice? Or those that have fought or fought and died protecting those freedoms? Or made a phone call/letter/email to the elite ruling class protesting the perversion of the constitution? The document clearly delineates the role of the federal government and the tools to keep it in check. All other powers revert to the states. The states (and by default the citizens) have abdicated those responsibilities and allowed the feds to usurp power to the point where the citizenry no longer matters. But that is okay, the bread and circuses are entertaining....

 

I have met the enemy and he is us....Pogo

If you were a business owner - would you rebuild there?

 

not me.

If I was the Governor I'd offer those that had their businesses destroyed/looted an incentive to relocate to a better part of town.

The only times I've been to Boston was back in the 90's when I went there on business trips a couple of times.

 

Driving through the city I was reminded of how it was to drive through Rome Italy... pretty comparable... and that's not a complement.

 

On the news they referred to an area of the city as "The Combat Zone" .. that's just nuts.

 

Walking around in the old section of downtown was nice though - good Irish pubs.

........ Six Baltimore police officers will be charged in the death of Freddie Gray after a Maryland state attorney ruled that the fatal injuries Gray sustained while in police custody were considered a homicide.

 

I know being a cop anywhere is a hard job but what for they're getting mixed up in those killings ...... here, there ..... anywhere..... this was just a rhetorical question.

.....and I'm sure ol' Freddie Gray was just being the model citizen....doing nothing wrong, just picked up and beat because he looked like a criminal.... :no:

Yup, keep demonizing cops. When no one wants to take that low paying difficult job because its not

worth the risk of ending up in prison for doing their job, those very same neighborhoods will really turn into a hell. Then what will happen? Will they be begging for any police presence?

 

FYI, did you know that one of Gray's brothers was killed by gang violence. Where were those protests?
