Although i have ZERO respect for the Mayor who is now ducking for cover. She's in way over her head at this point and hopefully will not see another term in office.

and those good cops who do nothing are just as culpable as the ones who are corrupt and brutal.

The blue wall of silence needs to tumble on down, posthaste!

Baltimore is indeed headed to the same place as Detroit.
From what I've heard, it was already two steps away from being a Detroit already.

I wish this were true (justice prevailing). Historically it's not. Police officers generally are acquitted. The public has a hard time sending the boys in blue off to jail. It's easier to believe that everyone arrested is guilty (after all, why would the police be chasing you or arresting you if you aren't a guilty skell?), deserves a bit of extra roughing up (that'll teach 'em!) and, most importantly, that the police are doing a dirty job an they are justified in doing whatever necessary to protect Joe Blow Taxpayer (i.e. jury members).

Pardon my ignorance but I never heard that word used. What's the meaning of it?

Apparently our GoFundMe account has been suspended with no explanation. We are working to find a new site for donations. Thank you!


Fraternal Order of Police started a gofundme donations page.

Seems those charged will get great representation.

Lol--the wrong guy alright. A jerk with anger management issues who has had at least four run-ins with the law since he murdered a teen, due to his penchant for threatening others with guns.

Correction: EVERY SINGLE officer arrested for killing #FreddieGray was given bail less than teenager Allen Bullock.



Travesty.

Not the "public".

Just those people requiring a "confession" from the cop saying he murdered and brutalized on purpose before they convict.

Even video evidence means nothing.

The officer that shot that man 5 times in the back running away could say that he really did grab the taser and believed him to be a "threat to the public". Remember, he was arrested as a teen 30 years ago for hitting a deputy and owed child support. Dude had it coming will be the mindset of his jurors.


Apparently, those psych tests cops are required to take before becoming officers must not be working anymore (if they ever did).

Wonder how many of those live in Baltimore?

I'm thinking not many.
