Baltimore

Cops are becoming targets lately. I do not blame them for being to worried about what could happen. These people hate the cops and complain all the time about over policing, and now they do not have it and want "some" of it back.

cops are too worried right now about what can happen. And in all honesty not trying to stir the race pot but it seems as though white police officers are the ones who are more worried about anything. They do not want to make a mistake and be part of a witch hunt that causes them to have to disappear from their hometown all together.

I have a feeling this will continue throughout the country until our law enforcement is to afraid to perform a routine traffic stop. And apparently the news outlets are getting in on this? and people wonder why America is going down the drain. They probably cannot fire the mayor as she will claim racism and here comes Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to the rescue.

I understand their frustration, but for ****s sake mindlessly destroying their city is solving nothing.

From what I remember it wasn't the people that lived there doing it. It was the out of towners. But this may not be the case in this situation, I always thought Baltimore was a dangerous place so who knows.

It will probably continue , I agree.

In potential life or death situations......... if the cop survives, his life is over and he has to be put in protection. if he doesn't survive, then he's dead and no one gives a dam. I mean, f*** that. I feel bad for the cops.

It sucks because within 20 years., I can see PC'ness taking a heavy handed approach to our soldiers overseas, also.

probably still in the phase of thinking their invincible despite what's happening around them. Doesn't help when others provoke them mistaking it as encouragement

I'm sure Baltimore will ask for more money to repair their city.. Even though it was their elected officials that gave the thugs permission to destroy their city. It is months later and I am still shocked that the rights of those business owners were completely shat on in order to protect a violent riot.

I hate to say it, but this is just starting. There's going to be another incident this summer, it's inevitable.

My worry is, as SSK stated, is this wave of unrest spreading throughout the country.

The cops from areas with a high crime rate, should all get the blue flu for a month or two, and stay home. Those guys don't get paid enough money to deal with the sh1t going on from the media and the """protests""".

No, they dont. It sucks to see all the "good" cops suffering for a few dumbass power driven "thugs" as the Mayor put it.

Last night, they interviewed a few residents and they were saying the cops arent patrolling the bad neighborhoods and if are only seeing cops if they are passing through to go somewhere else.

I can honestly see this happening, I believe part of it is happening already. The army had rules set in place a long time ago and now because of how horrible the world is changing we are now seeing the army having to change its standard. I mean before I got out I heard about some boot camps would have to give the new recruits stress cards that they can use to not be yelled at..... STRESS CARDS!!! WTF!!!!!!!!! what would happen if you are being shot at? want to give the enemy a stress card to be exempt from being shot at??? the world is getting dumber as it ages.

I agree 150% with this. You have athletes who get paid millions to play a sport, granted football players have a short timespan in the sport but can end up making millioins just for playing a sport better than what others can.

And you have first responders and the military being grossly underpaid for their service in putting their lives on the line day in and out and you hear about how congress and obama want to make the military take a pay cut! WTF!!!!!

Yes the actions of a few to do convey the actions of the rest, this is the whole term behind racism, actions from a few do not mean the rest feel this way. Unfortunately with both situations you have the media using this news as a ploy to get more ratings and attract more viewers all the while dividing the nation by stirring the pot. Not all white cops are bad, not all black men are thugs. In my personal opinion the minority is the black thugs/bad cops and the white thugs/bad cops, I say this because there aren't many of them. There are more good people in the world than there are bad. But for some reason the media wants to portray everything in the negative to allow higher ratings and more money in their pockets.

Anyone want to discuss this?

You ever seen "the wire".

Balt has never been the safest place to live.

As far as police. Once i seen they paid thugs to protest. Someone came up with 50 grand to pass out and then still owed money. The group threatened to kill the white bald guy.

I makes me think the cops are being played by some rich group who would love to see them tear their own state down so they can by the land for cheap and develop on it.

That place has been crazy for a long time.

I lived in Los Angeles during the Rodney King riots. One thing I never understood was why destroy your own area. I watched buildings burn that contained stores and diners and grocery stores. A couple of weeks later an old granny was saying she now has to take a bus 26 blocks to get groceries. I remember feeling so sorry for her, especially knowing she wouldn't have another neighborhood grocer for years, if ever. The one that was burned down, it was only a few years old, it was replacing one from the last riot in the 60s. Different city, same story. And the innocents suffer.

We can fix this. There has been more unrest in this country in the past than there is right now. For some reason most people think that the generation they are living in is the worst or best there has ever been regarding any issue. I can tell you first hand that the unrest in the 60s was far worst than what we are seeing now. Also, the unrest before and during the Civil War (no I wasn't there) but it was also far worse than what we have today.

Yes!! when I heard of such I was only thinking to myself "I cannot look at another soldier that comes out of boot camp the same"

my cousin went to Ft. Benning and he didn't mention anything about them. Maybe the military knew it was stupid and stopped. I can only hope!

Meh, apples and oranges.

The bikers were fighting over drug turf/money. Shot and killed each other, then shot and killed by police.

The rioters are responding to a perceived systematic injustice by law enforcement.

Except someone was behind the scenes pulling strings. Basically hired thugs to instigate the situation. Someone put down 50k to get people acting like thugs instead of just protesting. Then the thugs got mad because they where owed more money.

So while you do have protestors, we dont know who was actually rioters for a reason or who was being paid to act like criminals.

Conspiracy theories say the cops where there knowing they would be in a gun battle.

Even though not one cop was injured.
