I know this will come as a shock to cop haters but #blacklivesmatter took a beating Memorial Day Weekend in Baltimore.
No, 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 Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Can anyone name those who were murdered this past weekend in Baltimore, Chicago, New York and DC?
There's no mention (yet) by our President, his previous AG, Eric Holder and new AG, Loretta Lynch of this mass atrocity of black-on-black deaths. In Baltimore alone, 32 were shot and 9 were killed, totaling 35 killed just in May alone. And May ain't over yet.
In Baltimore, these killings took place after the rioters were given exactly what they demandedthe mass arrest and indictment of six local cops in Freddie Gray's deathone charge for intentional murder.
Stringing up the police lets criminals hang loose
Many of the cities that had already castrated its officers also had a huge black death toll but, percentage-wise, Baltimore was the big loserdepending on whether you care about black lives or only blacks killed by police, preferably white ones. It appears Baltimore's war with itself is just getting started:
- School's out.
- 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 to where they are in complete protection modenot 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 Lake? She's also is responsible for forcing police to give rioters "…space to destroy." Then this despicable mayor limited protective garb of the police.
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.
Brown 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. He was charging Officer Wilson when he was shot dead, the last bullet entering his forehead as he lowered it in the last ten feet of his fatal charge. He was dangerous, high and could have easily turned on any citizen he came across.
Yet, there is no plaque for Officer Wilson.
Instead, Darren was firedhis life ruined. He is now a target of the "blacklivesmatter" crowd and he'll be hunted forever.
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 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.
The theme is, "Your LIFE Matters."
Seems in Baltimore, it depends on who's killing you.
America, it's gonna be a long summer.
