  •   j3ffypopz We the one of the cities that got the bloods n crips to stop killin eachother. But we can't get our police officers to stop using these "scare tactics" that leaded up to #freddiegray 's death? We watched what happened in Furgerson and we did nothing. But when it comes to our own backyard we have to do something! I know I'm not black nor I'm trying to be. I'm trying to spread the love that this city once had. I'm not supporting the protestors that got violent, but I'm not hating against them. I see why they're angry. I do feel sorry for the protestors that got chased and arrested all because they wanted to remind the police about our rights. I know some of y'all are supporting the police. I won't judge your prespective and I ask for that in return. I really hope that in the next few days, our peaceful city will be called that once again. 5h
  •   michaelf32 Protesting doesn't equal vandalizing other people's property... 5h
  •   2bakes @michaelf32 sure doesn't, so how bout you stop treating the two like they are one in the same... 4h
  •   michaelf32 @2bakes I agree with you but unfortunately it usually ends up that way... And unfortunately it puts a bad name on protesters 4h
  •   2bakes @michaelf32 I haven't seen any protestors looting anything or heard of any taking place near a protest site. What is unfortunate is that there are people who take the opportunity to blame everyday criminals taking advantage of police preoccupation on protestors. 4h
  •   michaelf32 Aight man that's your opinion and I respect that @2bakes 4h

  •   2bakes @amers911 so if I'm interpreting things correctly...you're a police dispatcher who honestly thinks all the city's crime is related to the protests and completely dismiss the far more likely possibility that the everyday criminals that plague the city are taking advantage of the police preoccupation? Lmao okay 1h
  •   amers911 Yeah I'm pretty sure outstanding law abiding citizens are out destroying their city! Yes that makes perfect sense! 1h
  •   amers911 I am pretty sure loyal Catholics were out vandalizing the Vatican after sex scandal in the Catholic Church happened? Or did they all gather together and pray and work together to prevent this from happening again? 1h
  •   amers911 Pretty sure priests were being attacked and having things thrown at them in the streets, pretty sure they were all children too! Getting their revenge! 1h
  •   2bakes @amers911 you didn't even read what I wrote. I said everyday criminals...as in people who were committing crimes BEFORE the protests started and will continue to do so long after they end. I guess this is the part where you act like your precious cops have never been shorthanded and criminals have never taken advantage of that before lol. 59min
  •   2bakes @amers911 oooh now you're trying to pull the "only black people riot" play, right? So are we gonna not discuss the 30 arrests taking place after Kentucky got bounced from the NCAA tournament or does that hurt your unilateral double standard respectability politics too much? 56min
  •   amers911 I think you are totally going off topic! The relation between priests and police is the same as labeling all cops bad! The issue is these people are so stupid they believe they are getting a message out well only thing I'm seeing and hearing are a bunch of idiots running around destroying their city because police are accused of killing a man while he was in their custody. For the record of these accusations are correct and true, I hope and pray they get their judgement accordingly because of it were me as their judge they would serve the max to set an example to those who abuse their badge! As they are making the rest of the officers trying to serve and protect in grave danger! It also takes away from all the people out protecting you the way the law had intended! 50min

  •   organicart12 I'm black... How bout we don't just stand up for police brutality. How bout we stand up for black on black crimes also. I'm tired of every time a black person get killed by white cops or a white man in general, black people want to act a fool and protest. You never see our people come together like this on a regular basis. Half of these people protesting prob just want to be seen. I know somebody going to be mad that I said that but idgaf! It's the truth. I would love to see us unite like this not only when the white man or cops are involved... Peace for all!! 9h
  •   jihad_yack89 Once again, we're seizing the time.. 8h
  •   2bakes @organicart12 cuz black on black crime (much like white on white crime) is common and U preventable anemia Norma symptom of a long standing and correctable social ill that needs to be fixed. As long as there are humans, there will be crime. Now stop being a dumb ass and pretending racism doesn't exist, or that it's not a big problem that the people who are SUPPOSED to protect and serve and Stop crimes instead run around committing extra judicial executions. Wanna k ow what I'm tired of? I'm tired of how every time people step up to drag this kind of social injustice into the light and deal with it, idiots like you come along acting a fool and ranting about some fake ass fairy tale hypocrisy/attention grab they made up in their head when really they're just comparing apples to oranges. I'm tired of idiots like you coming around with your fake ass "peace for all" mantras that you obviously didn't give a damn about UNTIL it was pointed out that cops keep killing black people at random for no reason. I'm tired of you front in like you care about everybody while drawing a clear distinction between yourself and "them" in the same breath, talking about "you never see our people...," sit yo fake ass down and have several talk glasses of stfu for the rest of the day. Please and thank you. 8h
  •   organicart12 Lol... Chill out. I never said that racism didn't exist, please point out where I said that. I'm just speaking how I feel on how us blacks only come together during times like this. Of course your mad, it's hard to face the truth. Racism is very real and I will never ignore that! Please make sure you feel this way not only about blacks but every race. Take a stand for every race @2bakes 8h
  •   2bakes @organicart12 I'll keep that in mind the next time I see a white guy get murdered for shopping in Walmart or a little white boy get shot for playing in the park or a white person get shot in the back 8 times or a tackled, taken into police custody and shot in the back by a 73 year old black guy who isn't even a a policemen, but a rich insurance agent who donates enough money for BCPD to let him run around and live out a childhood fantasy and then tell every one he can't tell the difference between a taser and a glock. ....oh wait.... 8h
  •   organicart12 Please keep those things in mind, it doesn't only happen to us! Smh we may not hear about these things as much but we are not the only race that get beat down and looked down on. Racism is broad. There are so many cases of people other than black people that have unjustified murders or murdered for no reason. PEACE FOR ALL @2bakes 8h

baltimoresun This is Cliff Long, who will be the emcee of the upcoming Privateer Festival which will be held in #FellsPoint. He is standing on Thames Street, dressed as an 1820s era "crimp," which was a professional kidnapper who drugged and captured men who would be taken onto ships and used as crew. This was referred to as "Shanghaiing," and was a common practice in #Baltimore. (Barbara Haddock Taylor/#BaltimoreSun) 2w
