Baltimore makin' me proud!

As usual the media of the left and the right are completely missing the larger point. Just as in 1968, the residents of Mobtown/Charm City are fed the fuck up with the day to day brutality and thuggish behavior of the city's "police" force. THAT is the fucking point, and the pathetic situation of a young man murdered by these fucks just for making eye contact with them...WTF??? These lickers of Satan's taint should have immediately been charged and locked the fuck up, but instead they receive a paid vacation while the victim's family joins the long and growing list of law suits that the broke ass city continues to waste tax payers money trying to settle. Baltimore leads the nation in these types of suits, go figure.

FWIW, Baltimore County and City pigs have a long history of using their Paddy Wagons as a means of fucking people up with their "rough rides", but in the case of the young man who was recently murdered by them, he was already half dead before they even threw his limp body into the back of that van.

Not to worry though. The world's greatest race hustler since Jessie Jackson is on his way to fix everything. Rev. Al to the rescue.

Sheeeit... these fuckers haven't even gotten started yet. If the gangs do decide that it's time for some serious revolt the entire city will burn. Can't wait to see what happens when they reach the financial district and start lightin' up the tourist traps. I hope they burn the whole fucking thing to the ground.

And the cops... don't make me laugh. Hope they enjoy being targets for a change. Fuck them most of all.

Funnily enough we're watching a city run by Blacks, populated primarily by Blacks, and policed by Blacks, so the impact should be clear to all. This is not an issue of race, this is all about abuses of power and how eventually people just say fuck you, we've had enough.

Did anyone else notice in the first few days of media coverage how proud of her new hairdo the mayor was?? Kept touching it & turning her head for best effect!

Rather limited vocabulary (in my opinion) for miz mayor, too. Like she practiced in front of a mirror.

After this incident, everything played out just as I expected. Sad.

Funniest part was her saying that they were creating space for the destroyers, and then trying to say that she was quoted out of context, when in fact the problem is simply her inability to properly convey a message using the spoken word. Hope that at some point one of her minions makes her listen and watch the recordings of her blather and suggest that she just shut the fuck up from now on. Take a hint from Yobo and put somebody else out front to dance for you.

Meanwhile, if you watch the national video clips the Fast Cash brick buidling at the center of the riots is a building that I renovated about 30 years ago for one of my Jewish mafia customers. They used to jokingly refer to it as their neighborhood improvement project. The original structure was a three story all brick building that was all one giant funeral home called Tickner's (which may still be on the parapet facing the pointy end of the building). It sits on the corner of North Ave. (not "street" as the retards in the media keep calling it) and Pennsylvania Ave. Just a few blocks north on Pennsylvania Ave. is Mondawmin Mall, where the drive up looting was going on, and about a dozen blocks south is a Market where some of the other shots were taken. Just a few more blocks south from there puts you in the neighborhood of Camden Yards, the Inner Harbor, and a few blocks from there City Hall and the financial district, which I hope does burn.

The Jewish "businessmen" that made millions redeveloping portions of the West Side (the little that was done) had friends in the State procurement office tell them ahead of time that the State was looking for Class 'B' office space in that area, so they bought up or optioned everything that looked close and then suddenly pop up with just the right thing. Once the State offers a long term lease of course any idiot can get a commercial development loan. They do a shit rehab job ('cuz it's a State Class 'B' space) and quickly convert to a favorable permanent finance program that allows them to essentially cash out with tax free dollars. These dollars are funneled back to the City and State political power that runs that City and State (Democrats exclusively) to keep the whole wretched business running. Meanwhile Martin O'Malley (running against Hitlery at present) was one of the biggest crooks of all (married to the judge and daughter of the long time State's Attorney General, Joseph Curran). Definitely one of THE most crooked and racist administrators in Maryland since the days of Spiro Agnew.

The Jewish businessman's neighborhood Improvement project netted them something like 1.5 mil and included the Fast Cash joint on the first floor (the one seen in the recurring film clip), an adult book store (the building owner's father and grandfather were old school international porn dealers that operated out of Baltimore), a KFC on the corner facing the intersection, and the top floors were both leased to the State's Parole & Probation Dept.

North Ave. (the street that the Fast Cash Joint fronts on) has been half vacant for numerous blocks since the riots of the 60's. The area around that neighborhood was a prime location for the filming of "The Wire" due to the fact that so much of the "Wild Wild West" is so depressed and dilapidated. Cops there have been scared shitless for decades as well. Once the most dangerous part of B'more (now it's the East Side - where the biggest fire was started last night) cops in that precinct drive as fast as possible in the opposite direction of any domestic violence or gunfire calls before they answer their radios so that they won't be the ones dispatched to that call. If they do respond to a call the White guys back up the White guys and the Black guys back up the Black guys. Never did you ever see one backing up the other. We used to hire them off duty for security gigs so I heard it from them and then spent years working around there and witnessed it. They also don't hesitate to shake down anybody and everybody, regardless of color, but the West Side is probably the most exclusively Black populated area of the city. The Mayor and her minions are just happy that none of the White neighborhoods have been hit yet, 'cuz they know that would be their ass politically. The Black neighborhoods barely vote, but the only Whites left living in the city are a few yuppies and the older White liberals that fund their elections. Classic case of Malcolm's "chickens coming home to roost". Meeting violence with more violence never works out well for citizens, andthe young people that live in that part of B'more epitomize everything that is hopeless about that city. Illiterate, jobless, depressed, and violent. WTF do they think is going to happen when you let the pigs go wild? These are people who look at every day above ground as if it were some kind of accident. They expect to die young and life there is cheap. Actually the reason the rulers of the city hated "The Wire" so much is because it represents such an honest picture of a city of lost souls. You know some shit's gonna happen when you hear pigs using terms like "superior fire power".

No, cornmuse... I actually haven't noticed that at all.

I'm sure it's overwhelming to be the lead official in a city where this is happening....
So perhaps (if I've missed it) some hair touching and loss of words is a symptom of those nerves.

is it ok to hit your kids if you catch them rioting? Input sage? I'd ask galt but I assume he hits kids just for being weaker than him.

Zing!



I don't know if he was out doing right or wrong.... so I can't comment too hard-handedly.

But I guess if you are big enough to go out in a mask to do who knows what,
you're big enough to take a lick or two from your momz, when she catches you.


She was probably more worried about him than angry.


But I don't see the point in it as far as behaviour change goes.
She should make him help fix up the town or get involved if she wants him to grow.

This seems very intuitive, but consider the types of attachments people have to their neighborhoods, and what neighborhood disadvantage represents. Destruction is, first, the only form of expression some of these protestors know. It gets far more attention than efforts to improve neighborhoods without the buy-in of vital community partners and financial interests. And the results are immediately visible -- something that cannot necessarily be said for development, which we logically permit comes gradually.

My example is parts of East Harlem. There are some streets that look like a warzone every day. Not clean, graffiti, the only businesses that set up are liquor stores and moneylenders. What difference does a barrel fire make?

So. Do people influence their neighborhoods, or do neighborhoods influence their people? The answer is probably a little bit of both. But it's really not fair to say there is no value in destroying what is "theirs". In fact, it is one of the only responses that I think is reasonable in context.

Well said, Brother.


There are certainly studies that show how having a livable neighbourhood (clean/green/resources) promoting a lower crime rate, and an elevated sense of well-being and pride... sustaining these livity increasing measures, because people go out into THEIR place.... it increases sense of ownership and pride.




tl;dr When where you live is nice, people go outside, crime drops, people are active in their communities. They stay nice.

I think you're only going to get more and more confused if you're trying to figure out what makes a person decide to riot, because I think it's a lot more organic than that. It's like pressure building up below the surface that results, eventually, in a violent eruption. There's no outcome that is sought after. It's just rage jizzing all over the place.

I guess you did miss it. I think someone prolly told her what she was doing, she stopped doin' it early on.

She would turn her head so the side with the 'bulge' was toward the camera, put her hand close to it and smile, -'see my pretty do'-

Her inane babbling could not hold my attention, so I noticed 'more', her 'body' language.

I watched almost 30 mins of 'first day' video on youtube, did multiple searching and saw nothing. You got anything?

It's all over now that the Army is there.

Everybody hard til the National Guard shows up. Pussies.

Kent State protestors didn't even have guns and they got more balls than the whole fucking city of Baltimore.

Wanna be revolutionary ruffians who care for nothing good. There are some great martin luther king quotes about riots - they accomplish little.
