    The problem is sometimes they hurt or kill "the rest of us". That pisses the "rest of us off" and gives the bad guys even more excuse to justify hurting and killing cops, which in turn makes cops even more distrustful of the public leading to even more violent incidents "with the rest of us".

    So for everybody arguing and say this or that about those rioting or why they are wrong and so on.. Understand something. You know jack **** about Baltimore and what this is really about. Baltimore politicians don't want to deal with the problems and have ignored them for decades. Freddie Gray just sparked it but the issues are REAL and instead of dealing with it.. the City has allowed things to blow up and are now relying on the National Guard (Military) to solve their problem.
    You want people to listen and solve the problems in your city, rioting is the wrong way to go about it. All you're going to get is blowback. And rightly so.

    These perpetrators deserve whatever they get

    Just because I said one thing doesn't mean I don't know another. You don't know jack **** about me, either. There's no excuse, nor any good reason for what's going on. So can it, and don't presume to be in a position to give me lectures.

    Yes, the "liberal base." Clearly poor, young minorities make up a large voting bloc.

    Anything to smear liberals is apparently fair game.

    Is this any different than a big city winning a sports championship? This is nothing but an excuse for a shopping spree.

    If Freddie Gray had car trouble I doubt anyone of those rioters would have stopped to help him.

    In recent months we have had Ferguson and New York take a trip in the war zone. There will be more, many. Because your system is corrupt. Elected politicians know they don't have to fix anything, merely make it look like they tried.

    In the meantime races are trump cards to be played at election time, run a black guy because he's black and the 'black vote' figures they have a champion in the White House only to find he's a champion of Walls Street and Hollywood rap stars.

    In 66 years I have seen NO progress on race, merely hand outs to blacks to buy their vote, AA programs that cause resentment in whites, all negatives, no positives. The blacks are as at fault as thew police, using violence instead of brain power, head butting instead of shame like my personal hero of all time, Mahatma Gandhi. Passive resistance defeated the British Empire.

    I have said many times the election of Barack Obama has set back race relations in the US by a decade at least. You chose a black man because he was hip and black, not qualified and now you pay a price.

    Something to think about as the nation considers the first woman president only because she's a woman.

    Now is there anyone who truly believes Hillary can end racial violence?
    Yeah, you've definitely said it. It's total codswallop, devoid of any actual merit, but you're right, you have said it.

    What on Earth does Hillary Clinton have to do with this?

    Here is a massive hint: POLITICS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. So shut...the ****...up.
    They don't ?

    Are you sure ?

    Because there seems to be a correlation between the inner city areas that are more prone to riots and the level of Democrat representation that that area recieves.

    The areas that have historically been prone to riots and violence typically have heavy Democrat representation

    Thats not a coincidence. From perpetuating destructive and divisive false narratives to implementing foolish and destructive policies that lead to more unemployment and dependance the policies of the left are far more responsible than you realize.

    Politicians and toxic activist do their best to instill a sense of victimization and then tell the people that they're only hope is through the Federal government.

    While the Politicians promise " hope and change " inner City poverty and Crime gets ignored whether its Chicago, Detroit or Ferguson because its Politically inconvenient to call attention to a worsening situation.

    Riots in the streets because one Black Man dies in Police custody but multiple shootings and deaths every weekend in Chicago don't raise an eyebrow in the hood or in the White House.

    Outrage over one Black man who dies in Police custody but the multiple shootings and murders that happen on a weekly basis in Chicago ?

    No thats not a problem. Black lives matter.... only when they're taken by Police Officers.
