As Baltimore’s destructive #BlackLivesMatter riots continue to rage, some new information has been revealed about the gentleman they’re burning Baltimore down for.

According to the Maryland Department of Justice, Freddie Gray had the 18 documented arrests below, at a minimum:
FREDDY GRAY
And you still think that man with at least 18 arrests and serious traumas who were running from police instead of sitting at home was not guilty?
No. I think Americans have rights. ALL of them.

You stated the same thing, regarding not having a record if not for the war on drugs, in another thread, and someone corrected you on it. Yet here you are again saying the same thing - why haven't you bothered to read the listings of arrests yet? And, "a guy who had never hurt a person in his life"...uh, the records do list assault, more than once for that matter.

The length of the knife 'folded' may be legal, but may become illegal once it's opened--since it may pass the length limit after opening. That part is moot though since the knife was closed. What is illegal in MD is to have a spring assisted knife, which his knife was.

§ 59-22. Switch-blade knives
(a) Possession or sale, etc., prohibited.
It shall be unlawful for any person to sell, carry, or possess any knife with an automatic spring or
other device
for opening and/or closing the blade
, commonly known as a switch-blade knife.
(emphasis mine)
No his knife was not a switch-blade, but it did have a one-hand spring assist = "other device" for opening/closing the blade.

I agree with what George Carlin said many many years ago.. There are only 2 reasons you run from the police.. 1. you are doing or did something wrong... 2. you are stupid.. Either way you should be shot...

Blanket statements about children are just cruel, inhumane and ignorant.

What happened to humanity? To compassion? To caring about the under privileged to help them overcome their poverty with giving them training programs, after school programs to help them see the other side of things. Give them athletic programs to burn off that excess energy and keep them busy.

Oh right, they don't deserve to be humanized, to fend for themselves with a good job and salary at weeks end.

They are throw away kids because their own parents don't care enough about them to raise them right. Most of them come from broken homes and their crying mothers don't have any photos of them since the obligatory 8th grade cap and gown photo they like to show the media. Suddenly they care about their poor little angel when dollar signs and lawsuits are on the table.

Did you get enough information to form that opinion?

How do you know if one is raised right or not?

children test their parents, they rebel, they give into peer pressure.

This one who got slapped was told to not go down there and get involved. He did, she saw him and slapped him silly.

I think these blanket statements against children are horrendous.

I advocate for children, all children no matter the race, creed or color.

"Mom" always produces a photo for the media of the kid in a suit and tie in 5th grade, and forgets to mention he dropped out of high school, is now 6+ feet tall and 200+ pounds, had 16 arrests for violent crimes against others in the last 3-4 years, was a "regular" with the local cops, was involved in a gang, and has a Facebook page littered with pictures of him posing with illegal drugs and guns, and frequently smoking dope.

I have asked before, and no one has provided an explanation yet, but if police malevolence against blacks is SO prevalent, why do they (the media and the professional agitator class) keep settling for locally known thugs who were resisting arrest/attacking cops/in the middle of a crime (or all three) as the poster children for police abuse?

Surely they can find at least one decent black kid without a string of arrests, gang activity, and a history of violence, who was wrongfully arrested and a victim of police brutality (or worse) - when they do, they have my support for that situation, and I will be behind prosecuting the police involved in abusing their power, but so far, I am not feeling a lot of sympathy for the thugs that have been the "cause celeb" for the rioting in different cities over the last several months.

Interestingly enough, in the last few months, the 2-3 examples where police really did kill a black kid/adult that were (or appeared to be) innocent of any criminal activity, it made the news cycle for 24-48 hours and then disappeared (no riots, no protests, no AG civil rights probe) - probably because the cops are either under indictment or under criminal charges, but I could understand and support the outrage (not the rioting, but certainly the outrage!) if those couple of cases were the focus!

I guess good/innocent black lives are not the #blacklivesmatter that we are supposed to be concerned about...
Yes, the oh so familiar cap and gown photo with a wide smile from 8th grade. If she loved him so much why is the most recent photos show him tossing up gang signs and pointing guns at the camera.

What's funny is that more whites are killed by the police each year but no one is rioting over the loss of some skin head running a meth lab who assaulted a cop. These riots aren't about justice they are excuses to loot, rob, assault and kill. What's even more absurd is that all these future rocket scientists burn down their own communities and then cry when they don't have supermarkets, pharmacies, or convenience stores to shop.

Good for you. Go to Baltimore, Detroit, St Louis and advocate for the innocent, misguided "children" who are setting the cities on fire and have police records and gang affiliations. See how much they care for your bleeding heart and sympathy.

It's funny that you object to people assuming things about the victim, who does have a criminal record - but you're assuming things about the police. Since the whole story isn't out there yet - no one should be assuming anything.

And sorry but the law is the law. I'm not saying I like all the laws and don't think some should be repealed - but who's saying that the victim's previous arrests were for pot. What if it was coke and a child got hold of his stash and died - then there's a reason for the law.
