    Breaking news it's going on again. Looks to be a long hot summer.

    Edited to add, Baltimore has a population of 640,000 and 62% are black. They have a police force of 3200. I read this on the net and can't verified it but if it's true it could turn to anarchy very quickly.

    Have been watching the riot for an hour and there is a lot to learn about looters and riots. Better coverage from the air is giving a good look at how mobs work.

    I assume the riot and looting is staying within the area that the idiot mayor of Baltimore said they were "allowing them to destroy things in"? free-rolleye-smileys-323.gif
    ...or has it already expanded beyond the allowed "destruction zone" she wanted?

    It's covering an area bigger than the police can cover. Lots of action but few arrest.

    If they could be a bit more constructive in their protests, rather than just destroying their own neighborhoods, maybe they could actually solve the issue of police brutality and corruption within their city. I hate to put a stumbling block in their path, but perhaps their thuggish police department is somewhat a representation of the people within their society as well?

    I actually believe the man was a victim of police aggression in this case. However, they shouldn't turn this into a race war.. First of all, as I am reading, Baltimore's police department is almost half African American. Therefore, we cannot try to play the race card as they did in the Ferguson case. For all we know, and I haven't researched who the arresting officers were, but the person could have been brutalized by a black police officer.

    The problem is always about race, when in fact it should be about corruption within the bureaucratic ranks of their society, including the city government and municipal law enforcement agencies.

    Saw a few reports saying former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party Malik Shabazz, is leading the violent splinter groups there. Not sure of the accuracy,,,

    Well, I dont think the Gov has much faith in the Mayor, He just put the guard on alert.

    Dazzling Urbanites know they have carte blanche so expect many other episodes of "Civil Unrest" in future throughout the "Larger Cities"

    The Mayors not sure which side she's on. She gave the rioters plenty of room for chaos. 15 police injured. After a full day of riots and looting she announces curfew starts TOMORROW night. The roofs on fire, let the mf'er burn.

    Elijah Cummings was on CNN earlier. He's very difficult to comprehend and I wasn't sure which side he's on either but if I heard him correctly he got an email from Valerie Jarrett that the Feds are sending help...... to investigate the Baltimore police. Woohoo fan those flames of discontent.

    OMG she just invited Al Sharpton to come help.

    They're throwing rocks at the out numbered cops, and the cops are throwing the rocks back at them as they are forced to retreat.
    What a frigging joke!

    Anarchists are going to throw balloons full of dog piss at mall security guards at the Lloyd Center. But, outside of that, everything will stay cool in Portland.

    The time to really worry is when we have riots in the dead of winter.
