Its what they wanted.
Yeah, and they got it.
who would want to take the chance of stopping somebody and having their career ruined? Meanwhile our neighborhoods are as safe as they were before. The only ones that lose are Obama’s sons and daughters.
What does this really prove?
How about; some folks are just not capable of self rule.
Don’t believe this? Be honest with yourself and draw a picture of Baltimore with NO police?
Police are rarely in my neighborhood, yet we have little if any crime.
My guess is that Baltimore Cops are doing fewer patrols and they only leave their station when someone calls 911
Duh. What do they expect. The police don’t want to go to jail for decades just for doing their job.
Baltimore is a progressive dream come true..its the city that progressives literally built. This is what the left wanted, NO POLICE and this is what they got..the cops are staying away, sitting back, and watching body after body drop. So leftists, you got what you wanted so enjoy it
Awesome quote! I’ve totally got to remember that.
Why should the cops go in harms way when the street gangs are beating up on each other? If they did do something that B’more prosecutor would file charges on the LEO’s.
The denizens of Baltillujah are getting exactly the society they want.
Years of liberal rule once again turns another city into a steaming pile of Obama.
And how they respond is no doubt different. Like putting on their siren when they’re a block or two away to make sure there aren’t any unnecessary conflicts.
I say let them kill each other, they are cleaning up the gene pool why should the cops stop them and put themselves in harms way
