Freddie Gray’s family call for calm as Officer William Porter walks FREE: the police officer being accused of killing a criminal in this case is a black officer. Note at the rage-filled demonstration against the police in Baltimore, the cops are all black and the rioters are black. As inner city communities that were once proud manufacturing centers are now broiling mad quarantine zones holding mainly black welfare families who produce criminals as this is the only way they can survive in our Free Trade universe today. Selling or doing illegal stuff is how they make a living and suppressing these populations which are mainly black but increasingly Hispanic, is also a major expense and industry. Now, activists are decapitating the ‘police/prison’ side of the equation making crime spike back upwards again. This, in turn, will destroy what remains of the Democratic Party that is making our cities worse off as the GOP works to do the same, too. After all, it was Clinton himself that foisted free trade on us all, wrecking my own business (raising and selling rare breeds of sheep).
Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams declared a mistrial after a hung jury on all four counts on Wednesday afternoon. Lawyers will meet tomorrow to set a new court date.
The result came as a major blow for prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, who drew international attention by charging six officers within just weeks of Gray’s death – a speedy decision that analysts now wonder could have been too quick to build a case.
Speaking outside court, Shipley added: ‘We thank this hard-working jury for their service to the public, their quest for justice, their personal sacrifice of their time and effort. We are not at all upset with them, neither should the public be upset. They did the best that they could.
‘We are hopeful that [Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn] Mosby will retry Officer Porter as soon as possible, and that his next jury will reach a verdict.’
Yes, the black prosecutor is gleefully anticipating putting a black police officer in prison. We are not told what hung up the jury but I would suspect it was a black juror who refused to convict. Two of the five officers under inditement are white and I am betting they will be convicted immediately. As it now stands, most white people thinking about patrolling black communities are going to rethink this. I am all for blacks patrolling black communities, by the way. Having worked with and knowing black cops in the past, they tend to have a good idea what is going on in their neighborhoods. On the other hand, they are also easier to corrupt, due to the same factor. This happened with Italian cops in Italian communities in say, NYC in the past.
The Mafia worked very hard to get cops to side with them or look the other way, and this was a lot easier if the cops were also Italiano. But it remains a truth that patrolling communities from the outside leads to huge messes and that wiping out crime is nearly impossible if the economic system encourages crime. For example, the Mafia didn’t thrive first unless there were gambling/drinking prohibitions in the 1920’s onwards. Ditto goes for the War on Drugs which made profits in the illegal drug trade shoot through the roof.
The real problem here is entirely caused by our rulers who chose free trade and elimination of much of our manufacturing base over job creation. The flood of legal and illegal aliens was also 100% the fault of our rulers who wanted cheap, illegal labor instead of hiring American citizens who might be troublesome. I trained black inner city males who were in prison to do construction work 35 years ago. I got all of the graduates a good paying job in New Jersey and NYC. Then the flood of illegal aliens poured into the construction trades and now one rarely sees black males at work sites.
Backs to the wall, black males have chosen to attack what little policing remains since being totally illegal is their only remaining job opening for many black males who drop out of school. They want the cops gone, basically, since this interferes with business. When I lived in a mainly black community, I worked with some very fine black citizen males who wanted to stop crime and we had our own patrols particularly at night. We made a series of very profound citizen’s arrests and crime went down, the hoods in the hood figured really fast to avoid our small enclave.
Al Sharpton confronted me about all this and demanded I be destroyed! Luckily, my fellow patrol members closed ranks and pushed him out of our neighborhood which today is one of the safer places in Brooklyn.

The police superintendent in Chicago, Garry McCarthy, said he thought an abundance of guns was a major factor in his city’s homicide spike. Even as officials in both parties are calling for reducing the prison population, he insisted that gun offenders should face stiffer penalties.
“Across the country, we’ve all found it’s not the individual who never committed a crime before suddenly killing somebody,” Mr. McCarthy said on Monday. “It’s the repeat offenders. It’s the same people over and over again.”
Among some experts and rank-and-file officers, the notion that less aggressive policing has emboldened criminals — known as the “Ferguson effect” in some circles — is a popular theory for the uptick in violence.
“The equilibrium has changed between police and offenders,” said Alfred Blumstein, a professor and a criminologist at Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University.
I no longer live in the inner city. I live in a mountainous small town in upstate New York. We have a local gun store. Nearly everyone is armed here including me. A number of us hunt including me. We have a zero murder rate, too. I have confronted criminals here in the past (all had to do with drug guys who were angry I owned a property where they grew pot illegally) with a rifle in hand and words about shooting them dead. We live in a wild country but here in the deep countryside, we have guns because of the need to use them for good reasons, we have no cops to call.
In the cities, on the other hand, I never used a gun on patrol, I had good relations with the police on the street (the guys who actually patrol) and over time won them all over and so if I or a member of our organization called for back up they responded very, very swiftly. They also greatly appreciated our organization’s full backing when cops were harmed including the one that was shot in the head right in front of me when responding to a break in call in a brownstone on 7th Avenue in Brooklyn. I was the chief witness and successfully identified the killer and assisted in the successful swift arrest of the killer. For this, I was invited to the memorial march in downtown Brooklyn. There was a great deal of anger that week because the mayor was previously attacking the police not the criminals who were interacting with the police.
Many of the letters to the editor back up my contention that the political attack on cops is causing worse crimes, for the story really is all about crime rising again thanks this year to the Black Lives Matter movement and Obama and other black politicians embracing this while not backing up attempts at stopping black on black murder which is 50% of the murders in our country. Here is a typical response to the NYT article:
Gagg Door County, WI September 1, 2015
Cops in our big, black cities have determined – with the utmost of logical perfection – that distancing themselves from known crime areas is safer for them in the long run. They’ll avoid BLM pretenders who seek to draw them into no-win confrontations. If cops actively police, they could be reprimanded, fired or accused of over reaction and indicted. If they engage in limited by-the-book policing – merely responding to calls, they will cede territory to the punks, but guarantee their pensions and even their lives. Essentially, BLM has guaranteed a tragic increase in black-on-black murders…and, as a taxpayer, I don’t really care. Let ’em kill each other; it’s cheaper than locking them up.
They did this back in the 1970-1990 period which saw many of our inner cities burn to the ground. I was in the middle of one of these ‘burn down the hood’ events and it was scary as all hell since fires can spread very easily especially if the fire departments cannot respond and cops flee for their lives. It appears that all the vain attempts at saving black-dominated cities is now going up in flames again and unlike previous times, no one really cares anymore. Since black males in particular no longer matter to anyone, they will be left to fester and kill each other and no one will raise an alarm so long as they don’t leave their enclaves to do this.
And that is the problem. They will leave their own enclaves! It is life and death for them to do this. The real issue is, Democrats have courted both illegal aliens pouring in to steal jobs black males used to do, and they are now taking over the Democratic party to expand this activity and blacks vote nearly 100% for Democratic candidates who are allies with the Hispanic pro-illegal alien branch of the Democratic Party and this is an alliance that is suicidal for black citizens but they can’t help it since many white voters are fleeing the Democratic Party which has one saving grace: it is pro-women’s rights.
Which the Catholics do not support! This alliance of activist women’s rights people with black power activists and Hispanic pro-illegal alien groups is a rickety car with square wheels going nowhere in the long run. And this irritates me because I despise Republicans who want to interfere with my hard-won civil rights. What to do? One is in despair.
