    But no way should standards be lowered. And as the article showed with an example, blacks dont need it or want to be seen as needing it.
    There is a town near me that was investigated by the Justice Dept because minority police officers who wanted to be promoted had to take tests on their abilities and knowledge of law enforcement. Most of the minorities failed the exam, yet some minorities did pass. There were officers who didn't know the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor. Now, that's sad. Also, the police entrance exam had to be changed so that more could pass. I tried to find samples of the test given, but that was 7 years ago, and nothing was available. I do know that the test I saw was so easy, I thought it was an insult to my intelligence. Now, a prospective officer, who can't pass that kind of test has me worried about what he or she will be like on the street.

    To cause mayhem, and commit crime free from arrest..."Cooling off" periods are proven NOT to work....This should have been met with overwhelming show of force from the police, and arrests should have taken place from the first rock thrown, the first punch thrown, the first fire attempted....This was complete failed leadership....

    And don't give me the socio-economic crap either....being poor doesn't excuse criminal behavior. Being poor doesn't excuse current demo leadership in the city from the failure to correct prior demo leadership in that very city policy....Balto has been under demo governance for literally decades...

    As I said in my earlier post, I'll grant you that there are some cases based on that, but I don't think it's the majority by far. The majority by far, as per the crime statistics, are that minorities are far more engaged in criminal activities than other populations.

    yes, you put your business in a place where it is illegal to protect it with guns. You are a fool to try to protect material things over your life. Egress the area and let insurance sort it out.


    It has been a common practice since the beginning of this country for the family to live above the store. The mom and pop grocery, the bakery, the Italian restaurant or the bar and grill...... These people have sunk all they have to provide for their families and had to flee their homes when their businesses were torched. Now they are homeless.

    This is what insurance is for, glad to be alive I bet.



    Reporters work for news agencies. Reporters are required to go into any unrest and report on what is going on. Are you saying all white reporters should not be there?

    I think they should be careful how they proceed.


    White folks love baseball, are you saying all white folks should have stayed home that day when the riots broke out in front of Camden Yards when they had no idea that this is the area where the mayor allowed rioters to act out in destruction? Well tomorrow night the Orioles are going to play the White Sox with no damn audience. The stadium will be empty because of the riots. WTH?????

    yeah, uhm, yes they should have stayed home, locals know the areas, and it would be stupid to go see a baseball game during a defacto race riot.







    I wouldn't have gone to this game.


    those ****ing savages were throwing **** at a parapalegic woman, this is a time, where I think cops would be right to shoot any of those assholes throwing **** in thier little riot.

    and that good samaratin who protected the parapalegic woman should be recognized. Damn.

    3. You then deflected by ignoring what was said and instead referred to "cones" which the reply had nothing to do with.
    4. You again deflected by saying the provided Youtube video wasn't available when it was and yet showed you could access the other Youtube video posted by another.
    Stop with the deflection. Cans were also thrown at folks, not just cars.
    Wait, I said what "I" saw being beaten with cones. Are there other vids seen by others? Maybe maybe not. Clearly some were found. What do you want me to say?
    From what I saw in relation to the comment made was "drive away".

    Are you not paying attention to what you quote?

    I asked; Are you now aware that at the time you said this you were wrong?
    The simple answer would be; Yes, I am now aware I was incorrect. Or; No, I am still not aware.

    Notice that headline was 7 days ago, 7 DAYS AGO There is one already...So acting like there isn't is just not honest.
    I'm acting like nothing j, thanks for posting that there is already an investigation. That's good.

    Why burn down community centers? churches? liquor stores and steal drugs from pharmacies? No, I don't get where they are "Coming from". these things have nothing to do with freddie gray.
    That's a bit beside the point that was made in the post you quoted.

    Right, because cleaning up abuse, corruption and excess in the nations police departments is equal to neutering them.

    Not really. it was quite apt.
