Shopping in the hood. I have witnessed this in the past. It takes very little excuse such as, ‘The lights went out!’ for some people to launch into a looting, arson rampage. Any excuse no matter how big or small, can start this sort of economic activity. The downside of this is obvious: virtually NO place ever recovers entirely from this sort of Xmas shopping where the stores are totally destroyed and neighbors terrorized. The Democrats will be slaughtered this next election because of the party’s total ineptitude for preventing raging gangs from terrorizing entire cities.
The left believes if only cops never ever hurt anyone and handled repeat criminals with kid gloves, riots would never happen again. THIS IS UTTERLY FALSE. After the mayor of NYC boasted about not killing a single black person when they torched and looted the city during a mere summer storm blackout, we had a massive rise in crime where the looting happened and it was a life and death battle to regain some sort of control of things. You literally could not put a thing down or leave anything unlocked for a minute during the crime wave after the looting wave. I called this ‘a continuous riot’.
Drug dealers loved the riot. They opened shop in the looted, burned out buildings and shot at each other over territorial and money disputes. No one was safe. In NYC now we have a mayor who has decided to let the thugs rearm themselves and shootings are rising rapidly there. 5 people shot, 2 of them fatally, outside New York City church during funeral in Brooklyn. A number of mourners were heavily armed. They were all black.
Plainclothes New York City Police Detectives Shoot And Kill Suspected Robber In Manhattan but due to the new rules, he waited until the thug attacked him and hit him, first. The dead thug had quite a record of criminal actions. Bronx shelter boss shot by facility’s ex-resident today. The victim is a young lady. EXCLUSIVE: Shootings, homicides are up in the city. Last weekend, 19 Injured, 1 Killed in NYC Weekend Shootings: Police.
In Philadelphia, the crimes take their toll: 2 teens, 14 and 15, charged in shooting death of deliveryman in Crescentville Look at their mug shots. Already that dead eye look. The gangs running riot in Baltimore are similar. These are not people worried about being hurt, the people rioting get hurt all the time and further, cheerfully hurt others including outsiders who wish to not be hurt by them. This violent culture which grips the black community like a python, is swallowing them alive and it is sad no one is interested in stopping this insane cultural dynamic.
Naturally, the top headline much of the day at the liberal Huffington Post is this silly one: Police Throw Rocks Back At Protesters In Baltimore. In the article is this statement by our new Attorney General, Lynch:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch Issues Statement
“I condemn the senseless acts of violence by some individuals in Baltimore that have resulted in harm to law enforcement officers, destruction of property and a shattering of the peace in the city of Baltimore. Those who commit violent actions, ostensibly in protest of the death of Freddie Gray, do a disservice to his family, to his loved ones, and to legitimate peaceful protestors who are working to improve their community for all its residents.
“The Department of Justice stands ready to provide any assistance that might be helpful. The Civil Rights Division and the FBI have an ongoing, independent criminal civil rights investigation into the tragic death of Mr. Gray. We will continue our careful and deliberate examination of the facts in the coming days and weeks. The department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services has also been fully engaged in a collaborative review of the Baltimore City Police Department. The department’s Community Relations Service has already been on the ground, and they are sending additional resources as they continue to work with all parties to reduce tensions and promote the safety of the community. And in the coming days, Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division, and Ronald Davis, Director of Community Oriented Policing Services, will be traveling to Baltimore to meet with faith and community leaders, as well as city officials.
“As our investigative process continues, I strongly urge every member of the Baltimore community to adhere to the principles of nonviolence. In the days ahead, I intend to work with leaders throughout Baltimore to ensure that we can protect the security and civil rights of all residents. And I will bring the full resources of the Department of Justice to bear in protecting those under threat, investigating wrongdoing, and securing an end to violence.”
Violent gangs don’t do ‘nonviolence’. They are very much in love with killing, mugging, stealing, breaking laws, running from the cops and all sundry activities which we used to call ‘antisocial’. The problem was not that the cops were nasty. The nasty cops deal with nasty perps way too often. Baltimore, like Detroit, has juries that seldom convict black criminals if the jury is black but if a white person does wrong, they throw the book at him or her.
This means, the remaining whites end up fleeing because it is impossible to live next to racist neighbors who have a double standard. The standard liberal storyline is, blacks are singled out to be punished and this MAY BE TRUE in cities and towns with black minorities but where there is an overwhelming black majority, the opposite is true and liberals deny this reality which is why the dysfunctional social behavior of black communities only gets worse and worse over time.
Maryland Gov. Mike Hogan (R) spoke Monday night after declaring a state of emergency, saying it was necessary to deploy the National Guard in Baltimore.
“Look, people have the right to protest and express their frustration,” Hogan said. “But Baltimore city families deserve peace and safety in their communities. These acts… cannot and will not be tolerated.”
Hogan noted he spoke with President Barack Obama Monday evening about the protests.
The President is black, the Attorney General is black, the mayor of Baltimore is black and police chief is black, too. This is all a black political structure and not ‘evil whites oppressing blacks’. Like with Detroit, the hands controlling the politics and events are all…black people. Larry Hogan is white and a Republican. LIke most states since the last election which went very heavily for the GOP, have put into office Republicans. It was a very close election but the riots will cement his position. He, after all, told the mayor of Baltimore, she should call in the National Guard. She didn’t until after the city was looted.
Volunteers Step Up After School Closings Leave Baltimore Kids Hungry: many children are raised by the taxpayers. When we had the blackout riots in NYC in 1977 no one brought anything to my house. I lost all my food in the refrigerator and I was very poor and had no money to replace it. I had to struggle along on my lonesome. Survival skills are honed this way. But when everything is brought to people who are in the process of destroying a city, this is ridiculous. This was not a natural disaster like a hurricane.
Mitch McConnell Wants Rioters Prosecuted and there is a lot of photographic evidence of major crimes and I would hope people are arrested.
Baltimore’s violent protests are an understandable response to a system that’s rigged in favor of the rich and leaves young people with little hope or opportunity, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday afternoon.
“We cannot condone the violence we see in Baltimore, but we must not ignore the despair and hopelessness that gives rise to this kind of violence,” Reid said on the Senate floor, condemning the violence in a way that seemed more dutiful than heartfelt. “So let’s condemn the violence, but let’s not ignore the underlying problem.”
And what is the ‘underlying problem’? It is not ‘cops’. It is a dysfunctional nation and communities that have been cut off from the living economic system thanks to free trade and open borders making most black people ‘redundant workers’ who are then herded into government-funded housing and fed, cared for and left to…go idle. No sane human simply goes ‘idle’ especially when they are young. They go hunting. And doing stuff in general, destructive or creative.
Expecting them to be invisible is insane.

National Guard: ‘This Is NOT Martial Law’
National Guard Maj. Gen. Linda Singh said during a press conference that a “full complement” of 5,000 troops will be available to patrol the streets of Baltimore. Singh noted that the “massive force” isn’t a declaration of martial law, which would mean that the military took complete control of the city.
“We urge people to take cover for the night, and get some sleep and rest and let things settle down so we can restore order to the city,” she said. “This is not martial law.”
— Andy Campbell
Twice in my life I lived under martial law, once in Europe and once in the US. The military will literally shoot at you if you open the door or do anything. In Europe, the martial law happened in the spring of 1968. I was there, dead center, in France and then Germany. I remember the tanks clanking down the streets. Due to the medieval nature of cities, we could move through back alleys and in the drainage systems. It amused me back then because I was only 17 years old and viewed this as immense fun.
Of course, it was terrible for people who had to work, take care of children, etc. We were reckless students defying authorities. Nothing good came from our activities, by the way. This spring brief uprising did inspire the Beatles to write this song:
