    Will Baltimore ever be safe again?

    Each time we hear of a officer all over the country fatality killing a black man the country becomes a hateful place. Itís understandable that there are some bad cops on the forces and they need to be dealt with accordingly. However as I stroll my Twitter timeline and read many saying theyíre laying home cry and scared to go outside because of the white police ďhuntingĒ the black man. It leads me to ask this question....

    Will Baltimore ever be safe again? Itís April 13th and thereís been 30 shot and 1 fatally stabbed in the month of April. Just today 4 were shot today while playing a dice game. Twitter isnít lighting up about it. The news isnít breaking in with videos but how can people complain about their fear of police when we have people out here trying to take lives at a rate higher then 2 per day.

    How many kids were shot under the age of 18 (not that it makes it any better) but shouldnít we be bringing more attention to losing our youth rather than someone who is purposely trying to disobey the police? Itís getting embarrassing that nothing is done about this. The country isnít shutting down baseball games or hockey games over these people in the streets. Why is that? Why donít they have the same attention that the criminal gets that a cop kills for resisting arrest?

    Are we not concerned about the actual body count? Or is it we only care when itís white VS black?

    The actual non-criminal citizens of Baltimore aren't afraid of the police. They were horrified by the idea of "abolish the police". In fact, they want more police protection.

    The entire "police are evil systemic racists" narrative was carefully constructed by people who are advancing a different agenda. A Marxist agenda. The "pit every man against those who he otherwise lived in peace with" agenda. The "fall of America" agenda.

    And the media echo chamber accomplices are all too eager to help fabricate the story.

    It will not stop... until the purveyors of this dishonesty are held accountable.

    It will not stop.... until the purveyors of propaganda pay the same price that their propaganda imposes on it's victims.

    Well, the Captain John O'Donnell statue is gone, so Canton is appreciably safer.

    So homicides will go up or down this year since thatís gone? They have had a really violent month down there and I donít think the nice weather helps matters.

    And to make matters worse, the General Assembly just passed several anti-police bills, a bill eliminating life sentences for juveniles, and a bill making adults who receive life sentences eligible for release after 16 or 17 years. Keep in mind life sentences are usually reserved for 1st degree murder. You have a city in Baltimore that has over 300 murders a year which leads the nation in per capita and the legislators pass laws to let murderers out early... Fantastic

    So to sum up the GA session, advocate for criminals and attack the police. Crabs and the Ravens are soon gonna be the only great things left in Maryland

    No. There's still some places there trying to clear old inventory of Aunt Jemima pancake mix, so it's still not safe.

    I just bought some uncle Benís rice. Does that make me a social justice worrier, for supporting the uncle? Or a racist, for buying a slave?

    Won't happen for at least two reasons.

    One, because the police act in our name, are our agents, and because their actions are, um, prospective/foreseeable/planned, there is a heightened sense that they ought be well-regulated.

    Two, because it's easier to regulate people who are already prone to being supportive and compliant. On a larger scale, it's why corporations will boycott Georgia for voting right's laws but won't boycott China for human rights violations. No prospect of success with China. The game isn't worth the candle. But Georgia, enough people there are already close enough to your side that they are either amenable to persuasion or fearful of threats. Easier win means more likely to play. You know you are not going to persuade the criminal to obey the law, but you can persuade the law-abiding to move marginally in your direction. So, that's where the focus will go: on police. The criminal is written enough. No expectation to do better. Turn off the lights.

    Oh I'd definitely say you're the latter.

    You were a confirmed racist before you got out of bed. Actually, you were a confirmed racist in the womb.
