Baltimore has been run by Democrats since 1967, the Mayor is black, the City Council is predominantly black, the Police Commissioner is black, the police department is predominantly black, the city is 63% black. So..........where is the racism?  It's called reaping what you sow!

Nail.On.Head.  :goodpost: I can't help but be amused by all the liberal drones being interviewed on the street who talk about how these young kids (nevermind that the vast majority arrested are adults) are angry about a system that has held them down economically and targets them because of their race....and then they add to this talking point that violent protests is not the answer.  So the message is "you are the victim of entrenched institutional racism that has been around since your ancestors arrived in America....but we expect you to be peaceful and don't rock the boat."  HELLO...can you say mixed signals!

Is that really a "talking point"? Sounds like the truth to me.

Has this ever been done before?

The Orioles and White Sox will play Wednesday at Camden Yards in a game that will be closed to the public.

The revised plan was announced Tuesday after widespread public unrest in Baltimore forced a postponement of a White Sox-Orioles game for the second consecutive day. The Orioles said they made the decision after consulting with Major League Baseball as well as city and local officials.

This guy was well known to law enforcement. Notice this info not been in the news? Just not pertinent, I guess.

Oops indeed.

Three charges on that list are crimes with actual victims, and they're all just charges. Many of them were later dropped. It isn't a list of convictions.

"The Baltimore police officer who led the initial chase of Freddie Gray, the young man who died after being arrested and suffering a broken neck, has twice been accused of domestic violence and was temporarily ordered by a court to stay away from a second person.

Lieutenant Brian Rice faced actions in Maryland’s civil courts over alleged domestic violence in 2008 and 2013, according to public filings. In both cases, requests for protective orders were denied by the judge. For a week in 2013, Rice was also ordered not to abuse, contact, nor go to the home or workplace of a second person who took him to court."

A Baltimore cop is spilling all the beans and advocating for empathy.
