    Now that the local government is listening to the rebellious black thugs, this is what we have today:

    Antoinette Perrine has barricaded her front door since her brother was killed three weeks ago on a basketball court near her home in the Harlem Park neighborhood of West Baltimore. She already has iron bars outside her windows and added metal slabs on the inside to deflect the gunfire.
    "I'm afraid to go outside," said Perrine, 47. "It's so bad, people are afraid to let their kids outside. People wake up with shots through their windows. Police used to sit on every corner, on the top of the block. These days? They're nowhere."
    Perrine's brother is one of 36 people killed in Baltimore so far this month, already the highest homicide count for May since 1999. But while homicides are spiking, arrests have plunged more than 50 percent compared to last year.

    Strive to make police feel as safe as possible as they do their work. That would be a start.

    And how would they do that?

    They've been making the job more hazardous through anti-police/pro-thug propaganda. They'd get the opposite result with the opposite propaganda.

    I see. So if criminals see some government officials saying cops are cool, then they will stop killing people?

    That's how propaganda works. Right now the criminals believe the government officials are on their side and they won't get in trouble.

    It seems to be true.

    You do know that your ancestors are from Africa, right?

    If that were true, the US would be a much nicer place. You clearly have never been to Africa.

    To date, the only answer the left has for the growing crisis in Baltimore is either gun control, which worked so well in Chicago, or having the federal government have more power over the local police force, if not take it over entirely.

    Neither solution is really a solution. The only interest the Feds have is increasing their own power.

    Duchess, go f*** yourself.

    There is nothing to be done about it. You can get him banned by alerting the mods, as I have previously done, but he will soon be back under a new handle.
