    I actually sourced that the police in baltimore is simply racist. Maybe it has to do that 80% is white where the city is mostly not white.

    No, sir I am not. I am not validating or justifying any abuse of power or authority among police. From me, cops always get the respect they earn when I see or talk to them, but never deification. I don't confuse unsavory interaction or rudeness with criminal conduct, and I don't blame victims of criminal conduct because they 'mouth off' or show disrespect. The constitution permits such speech without govt penalty, including shoves, punches, whacks with a baton, and bullets by people with a badge.

    You didn't source anything. You provided an idiotic bias hit piece that was totally fiction and it didn't even touch on anything that I posted about. The city of Baltimore is 65% black. They have had problems for decades. The police aren't the root of the homicide problem in Baltimore. Someone has to commit those crimes. The place is a **** hole. The people there are willing to live in a **** hole. The police department hires blacks. Why don'\t those black citizens apply for jobs in the police department? It's the citizens of Baltimore that are to blame for their problems, not whitey or some nebulous villain called "the man". They voted for the black people that aren't addressing the problem.

    People need to follow the example of Donald Trump and tell lies, whoppers and even bigger whoppers long enough that nobody cares about the truth anymore. they just fall in line based on ideology. Its a proven winning strategy still supported by about 40 % of the people. Nobody cares about the subject of the lies anymore than he and his supporters do. They set the moral agenda . Insofar as you support the Liar-in Chief, you are setting the moral agenda and tone all over the country for a very long time. Own it.

    Its a lot more convenient if you don't. Then you can shriek about other people lying without worrying about any implications of hypocrisy. If you helped put the liar-in chief in the highest office in the land, and you do not sincerely regret it, you will, when you watch the political opposition adopt the same tactics and scruples for as long as they breathe oxygen. For now, you have to settle for people outside the oval office, just lying with brazen abandon, whenever it is of benefit to support an agenda including an anti-cop agenda, and all you get to do is watch, lest you make an utter hypocritical fool of yourself to get indignant about it. .

    After the Freddy Gray debacle, the police pretty much did stand back and watch. I've seen plenty of corruption from the city police, but the entire police department was thrown under the bus from this incident.

    Always somebody else's fault, couldn't possibly be the people of Baltimore's issue or even maybe the State of Maryland. Same is Chitown, San Fran, and LA. It's always always always somebody but the Dem policies running it. All these cities were S***holes before Trump and will remain that way for a long time.

    Are you unaware that my posts and this one have nothing in common? You are discussing Baltimore policies and Baltimore as a city. I am discussing Trumpsters who want people to stop telling lies.

    Not my fault you're off topic and have to try to conflate everything into a Trump fault. That's one you.

    The cops are the problem? When I look at the black murder rate, I marvel at the courage of police officers to go into inner city neighborhoods. There is no amount on money on earth that would persuade me to venture into those neighborhoods.

    Pay close attention to the black murder rate since BLM activism kicked in.... it is growing. Do you know why? I do know why.

    This one is real easy. It is simple cause and effect. What was the effect of BLM on law enforcement in poor black neighborhoods? Basically law enforcement changed their behavior and began looking the other way. Net effect of course is a rising murder rate. Note that the increase ALONE (300+) in murder rate in Baltimore is close to the number of black people killed by police officers in the entire country annually.

    And it all starts with the freaking police force... being racist to the core.
    That thing you call "bias hit piece"... is just your iffy opinion.
    That piece was written, by the freaking US department of justice who investigated them cops.
    And that police force is predominantly white in a predominantly black city.
