Your statement reminds me of predictions about federal authorities taking over (marshall law). In the last month, all these videos have been surfacing showing the cruelty in different cities. If this keeps up, where city after city presents their videos as proof, the time could be ripe for a different law enforcement to take control of things.

Can you at least wait to see if anyone is acquitted before blaming acquittals on racist jurors.

Isn't the van driver a black man ? The racist white jurors will have a real problem ... convict a black cop or let him go because the dead guy is black. A real conundrum.

3 Blacks and 3 Whites.

A UK site posted their pictures.

It would seem that the Baltimore residents, and the African American community, are one of only a very few groups that believe in fighting for what is right. Everyone else will accept without question (except, of course, city-data-ers). I am not advocating violence. Even they said they did it wrong when they burned the businesses.

I wonder if all the victims of the riots will receive the same justice as the mayor and public are demanding befall the officers? Somehow I'm betting not.

When will we hear about those that were arrested for the looting and burning? I want to see them sitting in their cells in prison.

I am thinking it was on the news that 246 black people in Baltimore were killed by other blacks and no riots or marches on the street for any of them.

War on the police is really war on law and order in the USA. And it is very easy to see who is waging that war.

They are afforded the same rights as anyone else who is arrested, bail was set for each of them, they have the right to an attorney and one will be appointed if they can't afford it. They are entitled to have their case heard before a jury of their peers. So how are they being denied due process?

It's amazing how adults continually lack the ability to separate civilian on civilian violence and cop on civilian violence.
