|Blacks in Baltimore seem to try and make this Hollywood movie an everyday reality|
With black church leaders in Baltimore marching - and blocking traffic - to stop the building of a $30 million youth jail (instead, they wants the already vastly overfunded Baltimore City School system to get more money), the first of "10 biblical plagues" has been unleashed on white suburban commuters trying to get to work in the downtown area.
Baltimore's black residents complain the Baltimore Police Department has stopped doing its job of patrolling the streets, but when this same police force does its job and arrests a known heroin dealer this same black population riots/loots/attacks cops/and burns buildings.
So murders are way up (almost every one committed by a black individual) and arrests are way down; four members of the the Baltimore Mayor's Office on Criminal Justice - including the highest-ranking remaining members - have resigned.
The incompetence of Baltimore's black elected (blaming this on Democrats does a disservice to those Democrat-elected/appointed officials helping lead Denver, Seattle, Portland, Austin, and Pittsburgh... those cities aren't burned with larger percentages of blacks as Baltimore is) is on display when you have black city council members worried about arresting too many black people, instead of working to make the city safer.
When a society's goal is exclusively the betterment of blacks, all of society suffers. Police in Baltimore know one wrong encounter with a black individual will unleash an aggressive (and sympathetic to black criminals) state's attorney on them, turning them instantly into a pariah like Officer Darren Wilson.
When the law is no longer blind but dedicated to protecting black criminals, it's time for a cop to find a donut shop and a warm cup of coffee. [Batts apologizes to Baltimore officers at union meeting, Baltimore Sun, 5-27-15]:
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts apologized to the city's officers Tuesday night, saying he put them in harm's way during the Freddie Gray unrest last month.
The Baltimore Sun has obtained an audio recording of his comments, which he made during a meeting with members of the police union. Batts said he failed to follow his "intuition" that problems were coming, and said officers got hurt as a result.
He concluded his comments, which lasted about four minutes, by urging officers to stay focused on fighting crime.
"We had a 9-year-old kid shot yesterday by these knuckleheads, gangsters, thugs, whatever you want to call them," he said.
"We have innocent people getting shot on the streets of Baltimore. "People think we're down. People are giving up on us," Batts said. "I mean this with all my heart: we need to show how f-----g good we are. … I stand ready to lead you out of this."
Batts spoke four weeks after the city erupted in riots. On the day of Gray's funeral, people threw rocks at police and looted and burned businesses. Officials said more than 100 police officers were injured."People are giving up on us," Batts said. "I mean this with all my heart: we need to show how fucking good we are..." Police Commissioner Batts is a joke, but these quotes resemble a halftime pep talk from a coach whose team is down 56-0.
The black elected/appointed leaders of Baltimore sided with the black gangs, black youth, black thugs, and black criminals who forced Major League Baseball to keep fans out of Camden Yards and the Baltimore Orioles to play the first ever empty stadium game in America's Pastime history....
And Commissioner Batts has been on those of those appointed black leaders (appointed by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings) who has stood by and thrown his police under the bus and allowed the black gangs to take control of the city.
Back in 1998, the Wall Street Journal ran an important article, showcasing Baltimore as a poster child for the failed post-World War II egalitarian policies promulgated by virtually every individual who is in (or earns) a position of power in politics, academia, journalism, entertainment, science, or diplomacy. It noted:
As the prisons flow into the neighborhood, so does the neighborhood flow into the prisons. In Baltimore, more than half of black men age 18 to 34 are tethered to the criminal-justice system -- behind bars, on probation or being sought on a warrant.
In Baltimore, the state recently assigned probation officers to 11 schools where as many as 40% of the students have already served time somewhere, in the hope that the officers can help, and control, the students better than teachers.Midnight Basketball, enterprise zones, more funding for public schools, free breakfast and lunches at the public schools, EBT/Food Stamps... every program designed to help blacks reach some level of the minimal standards set by whites has FAILED.
What's more, those Baltimore Police know the harsh racial truths of Baltimore (and by extension, all of America) better than most of the race realists who anonymously post on conservative sites and then sheepishly go vote for a Republican Party that hates them more than the blacks hate the police in Charm City.
Peter Moskos is a Harvard-trained sociologist who spent a year as a cop trying to bring law and order to the 65 percent black dystopia that is Baltimore. He wrote a book about his experience, Cop in the Hood: My Year Policing Baltimore’s Eastern District. The book offers one excuse for black dysfunction after another, all but placing the blame for black criminality on the absence of whites in Baltimore (paradoxically, it was black crime that drove white flight in the first place). But there’s one fantastic, illuminating portion of the book deserving republishing:
While poverty is unquestionably rampant, many police (often using their own economically poor upbringing as evidence) are convinced the poverty does not create the ghetto. Rather, a ghetto culture of violence, sex, and drug use creates poverty. One officer told me, “You’ve seen what it’s like. Can you imagine what it would be like if your professors knew what really goes on here? I don’t see them walking down these alleys or spending time in one of these houses. They read about 280 murders, but they don’t know about the thousand shootings, the cuttings, the assaults where people don’t die. Those don’t make the papers. If people saw how fucked-up everything is, they’d stop blaming poverty or racism and just want the whole place torn down.”
Most police, both white and black, believe that the social problems in the Eastern District are hopeless. One black officer said, “It’s hard not to think that this is a jungle here. People running around in the street at all hours. Getting high, acting like fools… They ought to tear everything down. All of it!” A white officer echoed this belief: “I’d like to napalm the whole area. Wouldn’t that be beautiful? Just come in with air strikes and watch the whole thing go up in flames… I don’t know what else you can do. If people want to live this way, I say fuck’em.”
A black officer proposed similar ends through different means. “If it were up to me,” he said, “I’d build walls and just flood the place, biblical-like. Flood the place and start afresh. I think that’s all you can do.” When I asked this officer how his belief that the entire area should be flooded differed from the attitudes of white police, he responded, “Naw, I’m not like that because I’d let the good people build an ark and float out. Old people, working people, line’em up, two by two. White cops will be standing on the walls with big poles pushing people back in.” (p. 39-40)Police Commissioner Batts said (of the Baltimore Police Department), "we need to show how fucking good we are..."
The Baltimore Police Department should just stop patrolling the streets, specifically those white officers who constitute a minority of officers in command positions (The Daily Caller notes four of the top six commanders are either black or latino, with 60 percent of the incumbents at the highest command level being from non-white communities and 54 percent of those officers with a rank of captain or above being non-white as well).
The black population of Baltimore seems intent on replicating the plot of the movie The Purge, and with black elected leaders/appointed leaders having already publicly sided with the black gangs/insurrectionaries (what Mr. Coates dubbed "war" combatants), it's time the police find a good donut shop and call it a day.
The civilization whites long ago established in Baltimore, only to abandon to rising levels of black crime, is dead; what has risen in majority black Baltimore is a reflection of the type of community black individuals can create in the absence of whites.
