Paraphrasing Kipling:

"Take up the Police Man's burden--
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard..."

Problem solved.
I hope you're trying to be sarcastic, that's going into Hitler territory, dissimilarity murdering people because of their appearance, talk about a police state......

Maryland's politics has lead the state to the dregs it now lies in. Baltimore is the first boil to come to a head.
So how do you explain all the dirt poor Republican states in the South? It really isn't about politics and if you seriously believe one party gives a damn about you any more than the other then I have some beachfront property in South Dakota to sell you. Note that this same situation with a police officer just recently occurred in South Carolina which, is one of the reddest states in the country.

Wrong. I've been in several riots. Looters are mostly males in early 20's, black or hispanic. In LA it was hispanics, up to mid 30' male and female. They are all opportunists.

Gangs, drive a truck into a gun store and keep the rest out. But I agree, they usually stay out of the limelight.

Seems like hype.

The gang issue could be exterminated very quickly if govt decided it necessary.

All it takes is for someone to get a DUI, a speeding ticket, even for a white middle class person, and how many of these people love the police as a result of it? The hatred of the police in this country runs deep, across all races of people!

CNN has continually mentioned the Bloods,Crips and Black Gorillas have joined together to help calm the riots. Even that preacher that held a meeting at his church today was praising the three gangs coming together to help. According to the media the gangs are there to help. They are receiving kudos from the media and that group of preachers.

That is sort of like letting snakes into the mix. These gangs deal in drugs, probably illegal guns and kill people. Why make them attractive to the young people like the media is doing. Look how nice the Bloods, Crips and Black Gorillas are, won't you come and join us!!! They will not deal with the cops but one of the CNN reporters interviewed several members tonight. The group agreed they are for peaceful protest but not the looting and burning that went on last night.

Yet the Black Gorillas had control of the Baltimore jail at one time, selling drugs in the jail along with cell phones. In addition they are responsible for murders there in Baltimore. How soon Baltimore forgot about that.

The white race will get their chance, some day, when there's a vast accumulation of anger and frustration, and what we saw in Baltimore will be a blip on the screen!

And yes, you'll see white people carting away good from stores as well!

What happened in Baltimore can be summed very succinctly: We always end up paying for the sins of our fathers!
