My greatest fear about the Baltimore riots

Baltimore seems to be on fire and the sad reality is that the moral high ground that could have been had is lost. Freddie Gray was buried today. He lost his life while in Baltimore police custody due to a severed spine. That is all I know — and actually all anyone knows.

However, what is playing out before our eyes is the depraved spectacle of anarchy, violence, wanton criminality and an utter lack of leadership. To have the mayor of Baltimore issue a statement allowing these thugs “space to destroy” is unconscionable. Is the rioting over Gray’s death or just an excuse for the most disgusting aspect of human nature?

Of course now, she’s walking that back. And adding curfews.

But the fact that police officers are being injured and that three black gangs have pledged allegiance in order to attack police is beyond disconcerting. What is there to gain by destroying one’s own neighborhood? Is this the new mantra of “no justice, no peace?”

Perhaps this would be somewhat understandable if it weren’t for the recent episode in North Charleston, South Carolina where a police officer fired several shots into the back of Walter L. Scott, killing him. There were no violent riots and the officer was arrested and charged. The Scott family even went so far as to demand that Al Sharpton not come to Charleston.

But in Baltimore they’ve had to cancel a baseball game and there are warnings for people to stay away from the city. The governor has finally declared a state of emergency to activate the National Guard. But where is the mayor of Baltimore? Where is the leadership for the city? Imagine the horns of a dilemma upon which the Baltimore police find themselves. The mayor basically gave carte blanche to the criminal thugs to take the streets and the police seemingly are only employed to try and contain the “destruction.”

As of now, 15 police officers have been injured. As the NY Post reported, “Baltimore police officers were injured on Monday as rioters threw bricks, broke windows, looted businesses and burned patrol cars in violent protests following the funeral of a black man who died after he was injured in police custody. The riots broke out just a few blocks from the site of the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in northwest Baltimore and then spread through other parts of the city in the most violent demonstrations since looting in Ferguson, Missouri, last year.

Television images showed mobs of rioters jumping on top of a police car, destroying a taxi and setting two other patrol cars on fire after teenaged crowds ignored calls to disperse and clashed with lines of hundreds of police. Gangs had threatened to target police officers, local law enforcement said. Schools, businesses and train stations closed in Baltimore, a city of 662,000 people 40 miles (64 km) from the nation’s capital.”

So we are watching the result of a social media post calling for a “purge” for Monday at 3pm. But this is not just about the death of Freddie Gray, this is about something far more tragic: the breakdown of the inner city and the black community.

Where are the parents of these kids? Where are the adults and community pastors? Why are these kids responding to this call for violence instead of heading home and preparing for end of year final exams? Does anyone believe these looted businesses will be restored — therefore black unemployment in Baltimore will be even worse. Perhaps if there were a thriving job market and better opportunities, these black teens would be working in these stores, not looting them.

When I was watching the TV reports, Baltimore looked more like East Jerusalem than an American city with a proud patriotic heritage — Ft. McHenry the birthplace of our national anthem. And this is a city just some 40 miles away from our nation’s capitol — where is the leadership that demands this behavior is unacceptable?

The Baltimore police are showing incredible restraint because we all know the liberal progressive media is just waiting for some unarmed — although I consider tossing a brick a projectile — black kid to get shot.

My greatest fear is that there will come a day when police basically leave the urban communities to their own devices — in other words, abandon them and let them be overrun by gangs and other perpetrators of deplorable behavior. After all, the anarchist sentiment is to not abide by the rule of law — but rather to take matters into the hands of the mob and establish the rule of mobocracy. And if there are no elected officials willing to support the police — realizing that there are bad apples in any batch — then what is the motivation for police officers to patrol those disrespectful and unwelcoming streets?

Freddie Gray tragically lost his life, we know little about how or why. What we do know is that the black community of Baltimore is not comporting itself in a manner that will garner sympathy — but rather contempt.

No one can lose the moral high ground to freaking murderers. Unless you are a murderer yourself. Any black people want to gamble black lives. Gamble the lives of your own children. Don’t tell other people how to defend themselves. The injured officers only have their colleagues to blame. Are they ever going to take responsibility?

Now, now, y’all…Rafael is judge, jury, and medical examiner….he has decided it was murder and the poor fellow was just “defending himself.”

A kid got arrested, surrendered without a fight and ended up with a severed spine. What’s happening is just natural laws of physics. To every action there is a reaction.

Katsstud

Ah Rafael X, the keeper of the flame as always. I don’t think “natural laws of physics” means what you think it does unless you intended it as a lame metaphor. The laws of physics occur without thought or choice. Rioting and violence is a choice.

Avoiding the argument as usual. If the cops screwed up, let them pay, but there is neither logic nor honor in being an apologist for people destroying the City and their future based on what they want to believe.

again..your ignorant…he WAS dealing..dumb ass

Stacy Benghazimack

a KID? and he was dealing drugs..and mind you had a long record…he did NOT surrender..he fought back!

Rafael X

Drugs??? Only thing they found was a knife. He surrendered without a struggle according to Baltimore police.

Stacy Benghazimack

what do you think his LONG record is about?

Rafael X
Guest

Can’t wait to see the record of the six suspended cops.

Stacy Benghazimack

yea..how many of those cops were black?

Rafael X

I don’t care. Police itself is a racist institution. Every cop swears allegiance to the blue.

There it is again…..the old racist card….even the black cops are racist! A new low for even you Raf.

So what’s your solution? Let the thugs do the policing? “Police itself is a racist institution”…do you really believe this crap or are you just trolling? Because, if you actually believe it, you ARE the problem.

Stacy Benghazimack

he did NOT surrender….hells bells…

Rafael X

Where did you see that because his spine got severed in the back of the police van.

Stacy Benghazimack

I hate to say it…but this is what we get when WE allow commies and racists to run things….we have ALLOWED them to smash our Constitution and or morality!

The only thing you “allowed” is for racist and dirty cops to let loose. Allow yourself to shut up now.

oh bull….and the race ratio for Baltimore cops is 41% black and 46% white..get off the race bs! ACT HUMAN! and stop defending the lawless low lifes!

Matt Mathews

Not true Rapheal, more whites are killed by police each year then blacks. Now it is true that that when percentages of blacks in population compared to percentage of whites blacks who are killed in police altercations are higher in number diappropiatly, but when really comparing apples to apples, if just measure cases where there is resistance to arrest though percentage wise it’s pretty close the same. I can send you the link to that study if you like. Not saying that there isn’t bad cops out there, like that case in South Carolina. Dont know how this case in… Read more »

False. Whites get it all the time…looking at actual statistics, not just those from the Black Panthers, is good for you, Rafael! Whites shot by police just doesn’t make for good race-baiting. Plus, whites don’t typically work themselves into a froth and go looting their own towns…so the news media doesn’t get to up their ratings and viewership.

Jason Knowles
Guest

that is because when it happens to whites it is ignored. And a lot of times when it happens to blacks it is fabricated and covered up

Rafael X
Guest

Maybe whites should be rioting over something more important than hockey or baseball.

Chuck Jones
Guest

Perhaps because it’s usually blacks that commit the crimes. Pinhead.

Rafael X

Police solves 30% of all crimes overall. If you know who “commits” the 70% they can’t solve. Call the FBI they might be missing a psychic.

Rafael X . . . I hope you have raised you son to be polite and corporative if he ever is encountered by police. If he has your attitude, you will be attending his funeral more than likely. Rafael, I hope you have a better attitude if you are confronted by a police officer than you are on here, or you son will be attending your funeral. It will not make a difference it the Police Officer is black or white.

Excellent article Congressman West.

Stacy Benghazimack
Guest

the same congress that sides with that commie president

hadenough57

Not West. He didn’t play ball with the other congressman with R’s after their name, so the next time that he ran for office, the thugs in both political parties made sure that he lost.

He played a lot just didn’t work.

hadenough57

No, rafael, you have Allen West confused with Obama.

Rafael X

President vs fired from the army, fired from the Congress and fired from PJ Media. No mistake possible.

Allen West sponsored or co-sponsored how many bills? Let me help you. ZERO not even a lazy Obamacare repeal.

I am sure that West sponsored as many as former senator Obama.

But President Obama surely vetoed a lot more bullshit.

Really rafael! As usual, when you have nothing to add to the debate and you are losing, you resort to insults like a 5th grader. Your insult is from the liberal playbook, and has been overplayed. Rafael, reminder of race hutler saul alynsky’s rule # 7 -A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored…

Rafael X

Never read Alinsky don’t care about the man. The race hustlers are the ones trying ignore another young black male got lynched by police.

hadenough57
Guest

No one is ignoring the fact that a young man that just happened to be black died in police custody. There will be an investigation into his death, and if there isn’t, there will be an uproar.

No one of any race will be ok with anyone dying in police custody from a broken neck. Attacking innocent people will not get to the bottom of his death.

You just hear about the black suspects getting killed. When a “whitey” get killed, white people usually understand that he probably deserved it and it is not big news. Police kill more white people than back people. Jeez, kill a black thug and all hell breaks loose. Isn’t it interesting that the vast majority (not all) of blacks and whites killed by the police have a significant police record? How about this?….people need to stop doing crimes. And if you are approached by a police officer, listen to what he says. It is not rocket science. Everybody is tired of… Read more »

Rafael X . . . Have you done any research on how many whites are killed by the police in the US? There are four and a half more whites killed by police every year by police than blacks. That means that percent of whites is higher than the percentage of blacks killed by police, since there about 4 times as many whites as there are blacks in the US.

I said this about Ferguson and I’ll say it about Baltimore. Destroying communities isn’t the way to get things done. Calmer heads have (finally) prevailed in Missouri, and members of the community are working with the city to change what’s wrong. This sends the wrong message and turns people against a cause. I get it. Young people are angry, and probably rightfully so. But, this is just wrong. Sounds like Baltimore’s leadership may be worse than Fergusons.

Now, to top it off, one of the ‘preachers’ supporting the protest has called Al Sharpton to come in and mediate. Like that will really help matters – not. Instead he will only fan the flames and make things worse.
Ruining property isn’t the answer – meaningful conversation is.
I notice that commenter Rafael is all over the page tonight fanning the flames, much in Sharpton’s style. And he’s got the sense to realize that anger is an emotion. Gold star to him.

Those who feel this is a cause wont be turned away by anyone. Anger is a human emotion.

as a chiropractor, there is no possible way to sever the spinal cord. It was most likely a blood clot causing a stroke.

PI by Nature
Guest

One doesn’t know where the spinal cord injury was. When the medical examiner’s report is released (with the information noted in that), then one can discuss that.

Rafael X
Guest

Gheez maybe the spinal chord injury happenned in the spinal chord. Ever considered that?

PI by Nature
Guest

With respect to Freddie Gray, where on the spinal cord the injury happened does matter.

JoeCasepack
Guest

But Freddy’s lawyer said it was 80% severed. Not 81 percent or 79%. They are forensic medical lawyers apparently.

The media lies to us so completely. We never know the true story.

rickochey
Guest

the spinal cord is about 1 1/2′ below the surface, surrounded by bone, 3 layers of muscle, surrounded by 3 layers of ligaments, surrounded by the disc. This lawyer should have his license revoked for stating miss medical information. Lawyer can also be tried for practicing medicine without a license…. He stated misleading info that caused a riot from a field that his license doesnt cover..

Rafael X
Guest

That’s why chiropractors are not doctors.

rickochey
Guest

so how many times have you severed your spinal cord for bending over?

Rafael X
Guest

Never got shot 8 times in the back either. But I know anyone ends up pretty much dead.

rickochey
Guest

random statement.

Bryan Fullerton
Guest

Random? sheesh that was completely disjointed and made zero sense. I think he started smoking his crack again.

Rafael X
Guest

Like you asking me how my times I had my spinal chord severed?

rickochey
Guest

well have you? How many of your family, friends, neighbors, relatives of friends, relatives of neighbors, that you have heard getting their spinal cord severed? Dude, you are drinking the koolaid. You seem smarter then that.

Rafael X
Guest

I know people who hurt their spines playing football. You insult my intelligence.

rickochey
Guest

yes you can HURT your spine but you CANT severe it… Your intelligence is in question. You seem like you cant rationalize or even put 2 and 2 together.

silentsighing
Guest

Yes, but “severing” the spine is not usually done in football. Very, very rare to actually “sever” the spine…and harder to do than it looks like on PS3.

John Harlan
Guest

I have never heard of anyone getting their spine severed in a beating. Chiropractors know more about the structural spine than most doctors.

Rafael X
Guest

Yeah but chiropractors can’t prescribe a RMI or X-ray. I will side with real medicine.

rickochey
Guest

yes we can … We can do EVERYTHING… You are brainwashed to be stupid.

Poto63
Guest

Sorry, but they can. My chiropractor takes regular x-rays to chart progress. Try again.

Rafael X
Guest

Whatever. When someone calls a chiropractor as an expert witness than we’ll talk.

rickochey
Guest

they do all the time… There are many chiropractors that are what is called ‘professional witnesses’ that go to trial and it is not cheap.

Rafael X
Guest

Well actual doctors said his spine was 80% severed. And police report says he surrendered without a struggle. So unless a the police van had a magic spine severing machine that only chiropractors understand. Police broke his neck and left him to die.

rickochey
Guest

than it sounds like a birth defect that was never discovered by your buddy a ‘doctor’…… lol.. there is no possible way to break someones neck… you have been playing playstation to long and watching to many movies.

If you want to protest the wanton carnage that is being encouraged/tolerated in the streets of Baltimore then simply boycott Baltimore City. Eventually the reduction of tax revenue will cause the politicians to take notice.

What the Baltimore mayor did/say or did not do/say is immaterial. The bottom line is there are a few thousand loose animals tearing the town apart.
It seems as though nobody (cops, national guard, state police, etc.) has the balls to shut the thugs down in which case Baltimore deserves all it’s receiving.

PI by Nature

When the mayor says that she’s going to let the rioters have at it, that’s not immaterial. The mayor is the one who needs to set the tone of law and order. No one else (except the governor via the Guard) can do that.

American Police are just lazy and stupid. Any cop worth his salt in the US works for State Police or the Feds. In Canada average cop earns 60k a year and is college educated.

“Public schools in the ghetto teach extrapolation in the 8th grade.” Thanks for the non-sequitur. “Don’t try to recite the dictionary, you come across even dumber than you really are.” That literally makes no sense whatsoever. The OP made no reference to car theft, so that rambling bit about psychics is also irrelevant. Would you have liked it more if he had said that blacks commit most of the solved crimes? Either way, only an imbecile would think that blacks don’t commit a disproportionately high number of the crimes in this country. A caveat: African Americans, because blacks who immigrate… Read more »

The mayor needs to go. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake demonstrated on Sunday that she is an impediment to law and order. I distinguish this from Ferguson, where the problem was poor planning. Once that became clear, Larry Hogan, the governor, needed to call in the National Guard (as of this post, Hogan has done so, but a day too late and after a lot of damage has been done). If Rawlings-Blake were the mayor of NYC and she did that, the next move she’d be making would be purchasing a one-way ticket at JFK or LaGuardia for any flight out of town… Read more »

I think having a broad perspective would be to show an understanding of the liberal policies that led to everything that happened. Since the narrow minded view is protesters liberal good cops racist republicans bad. Everything that has happened is a result of liberal policies including the possible racism of the cops the possible corrupt liberal union and the majority liberal racist protesters. For instance if Baltimore wasnt a liberal stronghold maybe a racist union democrat cop could be fired hmmmm. Is that relavent?

Rafael X

What liberal polices are you talking about exactly? Firefighters and teachers are unionized. So are pro-sport players what the hell do unions have to do with this?

Jason Knowles

I am not condemning unions but they don’t have a record of protecting good workers, they tend to focus on saving the bad apples. Whether that is the case here who knows, but it is more likely that if somebody wanted to be a cop in Baltimore, he probably best not say he was a conservative. As a matter of fact if a cop openly said he was a racist liberal who was going to shoot a black man he would probably get promoted because the end result would cause people like you to hate republicans more

Jason Knowles

The media isnt showing blacks rioting because it makes blacks look bad, it is showing it because we live in a world where whoever cries the loudest gets what he wants.

When to comes to violent, rampaging thugs, I’ll prefer the windows & the safety of my customers, thank you very much.

The only good thug is a DEAD thug.

YEEEEE-HA! I’ll run over them just like the Boston bomber did his brother…& the world would be a better place w/o them. You could say that their deaths could help contribute to world peace. Maybe I should be eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize just like Obama.

Yeah sure whatever.

Oh, please. Please save your attempt for the moral high ground for an audience that believes you. Those thugs have no moral high ground. Protesters have the right to protest, but looting is not a right, no matter what you think was done in the past. The right to defend one’s own property against thugs and looters IS, however, a right, upheld by the courts over and over. The real reasons that no one is fighting back is (a) the mayor gave the looters “space” to “destroy,” and (b) we all know this is a politically and racially motivated riot,… Read more »

No one ever loses moral high ground to murderers. Having the right to do something is not always the right thing to do. I got 99 problems but a … aint one.

P.S. Those shopkeepers and innocent citizens didn’t do anything other than be in the wrong neighborhood when the thugs came. The police officers being injured didn’t hurt Gray. Innocent blood is being spilled. So, no, you can’t claim moral high ground.

Rioters should be SHOT….not necessarily by the police, but instead by the business owners who are trying to protect their livelihood.

You mean you would shot white college kids rioting after a basketball game??

If they were damaging property, assaulting innocent people & wouldn’t follow the orders of the police, damn right I would. I wouldn’t hesitate.

Chris G

Tell that to the rioters. After all, they were just “ptotesting”, weren’t they?

Oh, I forgot….You are judge, jury, and medical examiner, so you know that murder was done. Or maybe you have some sort of ESP? Smh. Seriously, dude, try to let go of your hate and racism and see the truth.

At best gross negligence. They said themselves he surrendered without a fight. Either way you can’t say that he should have died the way he did.

But you’ll call it murder and police assassination all day long.

Rafael X

It’s not a tragic accident either.

Again, avoiding my point.

I was talking about conservative media. Besides that you missed the whole point. Do more reading and less writing.

property is what enables you to feel confident that you live in a society that isnt hand to mouth. living long term. That is why conservatives care about it. Conservative media has no reason to discount a police assassination if that is what it is. Why would they protect a dishonest police officer who is probably a democrat working in a labour union in one of the most democratic cities in america.You are acting like a liberal who hates cops because he presumes subconsciously they are conservative. I got your point. Do you get mine? Why let the media do… Read more »

There wasn’t an article about Freddy Gray on this website before riots broke out.
