before long it's going to impossible to find anyone crazy enough to take a job as a police officer in cities like Baltimore where you have the idiotic mayor 'giving space' to 'those who wish to destroy.'
hey Stephanie, make some space for them at your house
If that is the case, oust the mayor.

I'm fine with that.

You're fine with murder and the erosion of due process? That's how you end a civilization.

That is what I'm suspecting. One person to consider when it came to doing away with due process, is Hitler. Looked what that caused.

This. They're gang members. I'm pretty sure they never cared about a cop's life to begin with.

My friend was shot and killed by a gang member, just for standing next to someone with the wrong color t-shirt. I'm not kidding - all in all, two people were murdered, one was shot but survived, and the fourth was able to run away fast enough. And all because one guy in the group was wearing the wrong color t-shirt (and they didn't look remotely like gang members - no tattoos, no bandanas, and they were standing in a family park in a city not known for gang violence). So I'm not exactly sure why a gang member wouldn't hesitate to kill a cop.

Has it really come down to this? Are we as a society really going to condone these street thugs going this far?
It would seem to me that yes, we will. We've let these gangs sell drugs,murder,rape and terrorize most cities in our nation and what does the citizenry do? Not a whole bunch. We want "others" (the police) to handle it and then SCREAM bloody murder when mistakes happen or some bad apples screw up.
Maybe, just maybe it's time for the residents of these gang infested cities to take advantage of their second amendment rights and stand up for the good people that live there?
Is there another answer? At this point I don't know...

What say ye?

Police spokesman Capt. Eric Kowalczyk would not say whether the threat is related to the death of Gray. Kowalczyk said the threat announcement has been circulated to law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Since the cops seem to have entered into a pact to kill people that aren't cops on a regular basis, what did you expect? They are lucky that their families aren't being targeted. If every cop had to worry all day about their spouses and children getting killed by angry citizens, maybe they wouldn't act like barbarians.

Problem solved.
By that "logic" we should shoot any young White male wearing a polo shirt, hoodie, and Khakis to prevent another mass-shooting.

I question this source with the history of Police/community relations in this country.



For example, back in the 90's when the Bloods and Crips formed a truce in LA, it was the LAPD running COINTEL that ultimately ended the truce and got the groups to fighting.




Could it be possible that these gangs are forming a truce as a form of unity with all that's going on? That's something that's been encouraged to keep the murder rates down.


I'm gonna look into the matter more later. This one intrigues me.
