Just like Ferguson with their ridiculous midnight curfew.
Los Angeles jumped off with a lot more violence. Latinos Asians and White people where being pulled out of cars and beaten at the start in broad daylight. The attack on Parker Center police headquarters began at dusk. With the curfews and nightfall came the sniping at fire fighters, arson and most of the killing as LAPD pulled out only offering limited escort and covering fire for fire department companies

As I said before, if you want to stop this, simply train the police how to arrest people without injuring or killing them. If you want to see the problem continue, just stay the course.

All the screaming they do about not being able to afford wholesome food on welfare, yet look what they're looting -- beer, snacks, cigarettes. I haven't seen anyone run out of a store with her arms filled with broccoli and carrots.

What the heck, the cops won't do anything about this, we're gonna lose this city, so let's just enjoy the show and have a few laughs until the animals slink back into their cages.

I doubt it. That would only escalate the situation into a full scale urban war. You already have highly organized gangs in Baltimore who are openly hoping this will escalate into a war with the police.

I guess I'm the only one who thinks the mayor and the cops have a decent strategy. Turn the neighborhood into a 'containment zone.' Let the looters take out a cop car and their own CVS and wear themselves out. The looters currently look very bad and it's going to be very hard for anyone to spin this into some sort of protest of "militarized police" or brutality at this point. Just wait it out and make sure it doesn't spill over. The whole thing will be over by tomorrow. However, if they send in the tanks and shoot people it will just turn into Ferguson 2.0.

Why would the Native Americans In Baltimore need to use birth control?

Anyway, you can't keep on brutalizing a peoples and not expect them to rise up at some point. Some people on other websites have said that the black people in some parts of Baltimore feel that they have nothing to lose so this will probably go on for a while. Also being reported on other sites that some 'other' people have joined in so it is not just a black thing.
