Baltimore police can’t do their job and have all they can do to protect themselves. The mobocracy is now in charge of the city. The police union is being harassed for calling the protesters a “lynch mob”. The protesters are frightening and include the Revolutionary Communist Party but no one is concerned about it or reporting. it. The radical Justice League was also marching.
Murders are up 40% in Baltimore and non-fatal shootings are up 60% with arrests down 32%. Nonviolent crimes are up 175%. Police are afraid to do proactive policing. They are alienated by the prosecutor, the police chief and the mayor. No one has their backs.
Five people were shot today alone.
In an editorial for the Baltimore Sun today, the NAACP added fuel to the fires and accused the police union representative of borderline racism.
“We were disturbed by your use of language describing these frustrated young citizens as a “lynch mob”…You then decided to defend these six officers by all but attacking [DA] Marilyn Mosby – a young African-American mother of two…It bothers us greatly to have the integrity of these strong African-American female leaders questioned by someone who..is pushing a personal agenda in the face of clear injustice, regardless of the possible irreparable harm it may have on our city.”
The frustrated young citizens include the criminals, the Revolutionary Communist Party, black power groups. The police union rep is supposed to defend his men and they are innocent until proven guilty. This isn’t France.
Clear injustice to the NAACP means they’ve already convicted the six police officers.
The prosecutor – Mosby – has changed her tune on the knife which was used to arrest three of the officers. At first her indictment read that the arrest was illegal because the knife was not a switchblade. It has since become evident it is a switchblade so she now says they arrested Freddie Gray before they had the knife and that is the cause for the illegal arrest charge.
In other words, they made a mistake in arresting him and they might lose their freedom over it.
The mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was in the White House today meeting to brainstorm handling of the police. She is the one who asked the DOJ civil rights division to come in to investigate the police for racism even though three of the six accused police officers are black.
Sens. Barbara Mikulski (D), Ben Cardin (D) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D), who represents Baltimore, conspired with White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and other top ranking officials to “discuss ways in which the administration can continue to serve as an active partner in supporting local priorities following the recent unrest in Baltimore,” the White House said in a statement.
The officials pledged to work on “expanding opportunity in Baltimore and in communities across the country.” The opportunity would be to fill up the department with minority officers.
Also participating in the meeting were Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, and Broderick Johnson, who leads the administration’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative to aid young minority males.
The left claim that once they join the department, blacks can also become racist.
The feds will transform the police department. We can expect citizens to have constant surveillance over the police. The DOJ is hiring ACORN-style community organizers to run around communicating between the police department and the community. They will be surveilling police.
Police will be expected to reduce their aggressive policing or eliminate it.
In Camden, the police read to children, send trucks around with ice cream and conduct other non-police services. The president praised them for this new form of policing.
He is literally federalizing the police and ruining them at the same time.
Progressive ideologue Vanita Gupta, head of the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, has told a lawyers group in Colorado that slavery and Jim Crow helped fuel the Ferguson and Baltimore riots.
She said “The conversation in these rooms, however, is not about whether to have police or not but about what kind of policing communities want and deserve.”
The kind they “deserve” of course is Marxist social justice. The conversations and the people in the room don’t even include the police.
The Marxists and criminals are now in control of Baltimore, empowered by those in the highest seats of office. They mobilized within hours and about fifty of them were protesting today, demanding an apology from the police union for the “lynch mob” comments.
The sign the man is holding was produced and distributed by rev.com, the Revolutionary Communist Party. The man next to him has a rev.com shirt. The mainstream won’t tell you this.
In late 2014 and into early 2015, JLNYC’s [Justice League NYC] Internet homepage featured a photo of Lisa Fithian — along with photos of a few other left-wing activists — below a caption stating that the Justice League was “Powered By People Like You.”
Born in 1961, Lisa Fithian is a longtime community organizer who specializes in aggressive “direct action” tactics and, as journalist Byron York puts it, “operates in the world of anti-globalism anarchists, antiwar protesters, and union activists.” York notes, further, that Fithian’s status as an organizer of the Left is “legendary,” according to Discover the Networks.
Fithian has also provided training and support to such groups as the new Students for a Democratic Society, ACORN, National People’s Action, and many others.
These are professional and dangerous organizers stirring up trouble for the police and the administration knows it, supports it, and encourages it.
We need to ask ourselves why.
Police are struggling to stop violence in West Baltimore, where officers have been routinely surrounded by dozens of people, video cameras and hostility while doing basic police work since the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday and reported by the Baltimore Sun.
Shooting and homicides are coming faster than they have in eight years. Backup officers are being sent to routine calls to help protect officers.
“Officers tell me and their supervisors, any time they pull up to respond to a call, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them,” Batts said. “We have to send in multiple units just to do basic police work, which says we have to work on community engagement.”
They’ll have to engage with the communists, criminals, and other radicals because they are behind a lot of this.
Baltimore is one of the ten most dangerous cities about to become number one. Police are looking for jobs outside of Baltimore. That’s a good idea.
