We cannot allow that cycle to establish and that means, in part, curtailing police activities prior so that you don't get Baltimore's or Ferguson's in the first place. This sort of powder keg explosions need to stop. You also then have to address the socio-economical problems that plague our inner cities and crime ridden areas in order to try to produce more positive community interactions and decrease criminal activity. None of which is a "wave the wand" sort of system where we can magically cure it. It will take time and effort, but if we do it right we will end up all the better for it.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Has anyone heard why the incident is still under investigation and has anyone been charged with wrongdoing? They released the names of the officers but refuse to release their pictures. Is that common practice? Three of the officers have been identified as white from a video. I read that Baltimore is one city that practices black on black policing. This arrest occurred in a black community across the street from a government housing project in front of boarded up row houses and is known for high criminal activity.

"During Martin O'Malley's administration as mayor, the department had become 43% African American. While progress has been made to improve the department's relationship with Baltimore's now majority African American community, improvements are still being made to the department which for several years has been subject to criticism for its treatment of African American citizens. Police community relations have remained strained with the war on drugs that has plagued several African American neighborhoods in East and West Baltimore and coincidentally enough, many of the most despised officers in several of Baltimore's African American neighborhoods are also African American."
