So yea in case you haven't heard, the city of Baltimore, Maryland is turning into ferguson pretty quickly. Looting, police cars on fire, riot police... All going on currently.

All of this because of the Freddy gray incident.

Isn't that Baltimore all the time though?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Drug dealer runs from the cops, gets injured, and of course it's the cops fault because he's black and a perfect angel.

Yea but now apparently they have a 'reason' for it. Although idk how setting a cvs on fire has anything to do with protesting police violence.

Update. National guard is activated.

They don't give a shit about any of that. They have free reign of the city now and are taking advantage by beating people up, stealing cars and setting stuff on fire. I'll say that the majority are frustrated and getting their anger out throigh peaceful protest but these ****tards rioting are just doing it out of the fun of it.

eh whatever, mob mentality and all that Lord of the Flies BS. it definitely does help get the message out, here in england people wouldn't give a **** about this without cool news footage like this

how does fvcking up a shop completely unrelated to the police justify any of this?

yes, destroying local businesses will really help further the community and help prevent this solve violence with more violence, MLK would be so proud

im curious to all you people outside of maryland, is this being covered nationally?

^I sit in front of CNN constantly at work and they've had Freddie Gray updates on a constant loop. I haven't been in since Friday though, so I'll update you in a little bit.

The Baltimore police weren't exactly perfect either. And running for no reason is not reasonable cause for arrest. I see white people running all the time. They're called joggers.

People are pissed. Don't pretend they don't have a reason to be. Just criticize the response.

There was a similar incident that happened here in Milwaukee, there were protests, they didn't explode. This is a city with a lot of racial issues. Why didn't it explode? The police chief actually responded reasonably. (also: some little girl got shot by accident like that week so that drove away some of the news coverage... )

also it's not just the destruction of property. numerous events where these rioters attacked civilians. plus burning a building down doesn't just harm property...

Guys, I watched the entire series of The Wire a few months ago, so I'm pretty in touch with BOTH the Baltimore Police Department (namely the Narcotics and Homicide divisions) and the street level POV.

Let me know if y'all want the down low.


Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit.......

Because European countries have no social problems or race issues at all and they're just harmonious wonderlands.

I'm being sarcastic they're not even.

After reading that Atlantic article this is crazy. They don't even have a reason for arresting the guy and no explanation for how he managed to die in their custody.

Body cameras on every cop already.

I'd much rather have all the hood thugs deported somewhere and replaced with whiteboy chavs. Talk about world peace.

they don't have anything near this big of issues, unless you really hate islam or immigrants, or if you wanna fight dirty and use a country like bosnia or macedonia

I used to be a self-loathing american but distance makes the heart grow fonder. I still dislike a lot about the US [police] but overall it's a pretty good country

I'm so tired I'm not even gonna correct my grammar like I normally would
