    Re your last paragraph - it looks like another Detroit in the making - is this what the black community in Baltimore wants their future to look like?
    Greetings, Polgara.

    Heard an interesting comment this morning. If you look at the larger time frame, Watts, for example, still hasn't recovered from the impact of it's riots. Much the same can be said for Detroit as well, because once the riots happened, many people moved out and pretty much said leave me out of it. This degraded the tax base, and didn't help the financial problems.

    Kinda adds up and make sense, dominoes falling one by one and all that.
    It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.

    Worse still, there are videos I believe, or at least confirmed reports, of these animals raiding gun stores and arming up.

    What a shame. These communities are being played again, and they are too lost to see the ones who are playing them are the same ones who have been buying their votes for decades.

    What was dismissed Monte? The police Chief Immediately suspended those Officers and came out publicly with an apology. Said this was being investigated and wasn't going to be happening on his watch. Then they started getting camera footage from all around where they had been.

Because those on the side that are in attack on the police, and using rhetoric about "police state", and the "kinder gentler" footprint model, well, what you saw last night is that reality. Looked pleasant didn't it?
    Oh, aren't you all smug and satisfied with the destruction. Let us not forget what caused this powder keg to erupt. There are many many reason why so many of our cities are powder kegs, typically revolving around socio-economic pitfalls. But the rise of police aggression against the people and the number of casualties caused in the militarization of our police has been pilling onto the already hefty mountain. Had the police not killed this kid in their custody, there would never have been riots...not now. The potential will always exist until you solve the root problems, but at this time there would have been none. There would have been nothing to ignite the spark and led thugs and criminals to a take over in riotous response like last night.

    There's no one cause to the aggregate system, but the straw that broke the camel's back was aggressive police action against the citizens. So no, a militarized police does not look pleasant and it will not have good results; particularly when we heap it haphazardly onto an already smoldering cauldron of contempt and economic stagnation.

    True enough, but as DF correctly argued, public scrutiny and investigation needs to drive this. I don't like democrats investigating themselves for possible wrong doing nor do I like the department investigating themselves.

    That's exactly right, but I will say that under O'Malley the cops started to crack down on these areas. So, because there was increased police scrutiny, the residents didn't like that, so this fueled anger...But, we now see once again that appeasement is NOT the way to approach this kind of crap....It never is.

    Well I think some jumped on it Right away. They were getting video footage from peoples phones. The one lady had them putting him into the van and was yelling out that his legs was broke. There was something wrong.

    Plus they reported there was another in the van. But this was all before Friday.
