A fourth MTA bus incident now under investigation.

MTA police are looking into a reported fight between two groups of teens on a bus yesterday afternoon.

Later today the MTA is due to outline a new cooperation plan between police agencies in the rash of bus attacks.

The gangbanger enemy within. The US cannot survive this garbage. These thugs have nothing better to do than terrorize people. That is what they live for. They are no different than the Izzmo terrorists. Terror is their game. Stay armed and keep it close by.

Below, the link my True Crime Blog post made about one of these Baltimore bus incidents. I didn’t know there were FOUR of them!

Below the dashed line, my “tease” for the Blog post.

http://patfish.blogspot.com/2007/12/true-crime-update-122007.html


Heading down the homestretch towards Christmas 2007, we wind down with a True Crime story about a woman arrested for cursing at her toilet.

Also, what’s the story with this beautiful news babe punching a cop? We’ve got pictures.

Finally, info on that Baltimore bus beating. We’ve got pics on this too only the victim ain’t so beautiful once these hate-crimers got done with her.

I disagree with the part about the US cannot survive this garbage.

IF Armed citizens start defending themselves and others around them, it WILL stop these guys. The rest of what you said though, you're 100 percent dead on. This is TERRORISM.

Yes it can. I live in Baltimore and I just avoid the busses, I stay out of the nasty neighborhoods, and so on. It ain't a picnic, but it ain't Beirut, either.

uhm...nothing to uncommon since this is murder mall we're talking about. I love how the press is trying to paint all of baltimore as a hell hole, when it's just not so. Most of the city is perfectly fine...but like any city...there are areas you stay out of.

Do you notice that we are not hearing anything from the media, prosecuters etc about these being hate crimes? If a potential victim defends himself or his family from one of these attacks he will be branded a racist and will be charged with hate crimes.

People are more afraid of what the “system” will do to them than what thugs will. If you dare defend yourself, you go bankrupt to “prove” your innocence.
The law only goes after the law-abiding because they don’t resist.

I guess that’s true in some areas of the country. Not here. I for one won’t stand still and let some thug rob me or someone else without a fight. Most others around my area won’t either.

Realistically. they can’t charge blacks with a hate crime in Baltimore or any city with a large black population. There would be marches, protests, and civil unrest.

If they charge a white person with a hate crime the whites won’t burn the city down.

I work in Pikesville (Baltimore County) and live in Howard County, so I don’t go into the city that often. I’ve found that there are a few areas of the city that are responsible for 99% of the violence, but that’s enough to put Baltimore on the map as one of the worst hellholes in the country.

“Most” is a very subjective word.

I cry when I drive through the city; block after collapsing deteriorating block. It is so bad that distributors of Section 8 housing vouchers are suing the County that surrounds Baltimore City to offer more neighborhoods accessible to Section 8 tenants. Even they cannot live in the city neighborhoods that are hellholes.

And all that does is turn the County neighborhoods into hellholes...see Windsor Mill and Randallstown for examples.

http://essentials.baltimoresun.com/micro_sun/homicides/

This is a very informative interactive database regarding homicides in Baltimore City. It is necessary to choose a time interval in the first button, then choose any breakdown of race, sex, age, etc or choose all to see the destruction going on in the city.

If more than 20 children, under 18, died of any disease like food poisoning or MRSA, for example, the news would be all over it. Since it is “just” murder, it doesn’t make the paper, except in this database.

While there are areas that are ‘safe’, - no murders in Roland Park - the ‘few’ crime-ridden ‘inner city’ neighborhoods are spreading towards the city boundaries.

Normal usage is only one internal “s” for the vehicle and two for multiple osculation. Thus when one sees the word ‘busses’ in print one normally associates it with the romance that is usually not associated with the people haulers.

Baltimore is only behind DC and NOLA in murders per capita in the US... they're above Detroit, ATL, Oakland, and Philly... and higher than Miami and Chicago combined

They're low for rape, average for robbery, and in the Top Five (of the largest 52 US cities, ending with Wichita, KS) in aggravated assault. They're also about average for property crimes.

Its the same story in EVERY inner city that is made up of mainly BLACKS. The problem is “black culture”. They are a violent people with a grudge against mainly white America. They keeps themselves locked in their own little mental prisons and cannot figure out how to unlock the door. Meanwhile, the rest of America keeps right on passing them by financially, educationally and spiritually. They are the group that has been here the longest (of the non-whites) that still has not assimilated.

If the courts put the juvenile gang bangers behind bars, where they belong, there would be no problem. The responsibility lies with the courts, who empower the minority gangbangers, by their use of restorative justice. My guess is that, like Philadelphia, the minority offenders in Baltimore, never serve the required minimus sentence for any offense.

You’re right. It’s not a color problem, it’s a culture problem. Ghetto culture is incompatible with civilization.

Unfortunately, it is not permitted to state this out loud. Even FR is squeamish about such statements of fact. I suspect your post will get zotted sooner or later, if only in self-defense.

....Baltimore used to be a great,great city....when I was a kid it was the 6th largest city in the United States....when it went black it went down hill fast....black democrats keep getting re-elected and control politics there...so far they haven’t demonstrated any ability to govern....only 30% of the people in the city pay tax....so those 30% have to carry the 70% on their backs....how long before the whole she-bang just collapses?

I hope the county and suburban towns are smart enough to fight back. I believe the rule with "Section 8" is that they CANNOT force you sign onto it. That must be voluntary.

Once you sign up, though, it's all over. They've got you.

Just say "no".

It’s not a color problem, it’s a culture problem. Ghetto culture is incompatible with civilization.

"Color" and "culture" are more intertwined that most folks would like to admit. Indeed, historically, color begets culture.

If you are unwilling to accept that, look at the cultures of Europe, Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa circa 1500. In what ways were they similar?

It's something folks know, but cannot discuss - even here.

Besides the obvious cultural pressures of our modern times, American cities are reaping the effects of a half century of “war on poverty” programs which destroyed the black family, and black communities. Successful blacks improve their own personal lives by moving to safer areas, just like successful whites. This leaves behind an ever increasing group of people unable to improve their lives, etc

What President Johnson started, with great support from all kinds of politicians has really been virtually criminal, and heartbreaking. I worked in the city in the 1960s - in and out of the homes of the black residents every day. It was safe then!

If there ever is an example that no amount of money can fix “poverty”, what has happened to our cities is the proof.
