Civil Unrest Has Begun In Baltimore And This Is Only Just The Start Of Something Much Bigger

Via Joe

On Saturday night, the city of Baltimore resembled a warzone as protests over the death of Freddie Gray turned wildly violent.  One eyewitness reported watching the streets around him and his friend “turn into madness” as they left a baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles.  Car windows were smashed, stores were robbed, chairs were thrown and large numbers of random bystanders were attacked. 

One prominent Democrat claims that those committing the violence were “mainly from out of town“, but how would he know that?  Today, there are approximately 2.7 million people living in the Baltimore metropolitan area.  It is an area that has been known for poverty, crime and drugs for many years, and as racial tensions continue to increase in this country it is a powder keg that could erupt at literally any time.  We got a preview of what can happen on Saturday night.  If this is how people will act while economic conditions are still relatively stable in this country, what in the world is going to happen when things really start falling apart?

  1. I bet a lot of the rioters came for West and North Africa just for the event.
    Never can tell.

    1. I imagine money went to some for the instigation and to continue the conflict.

  2. Yep, that's right. Just like SA - paid violent protesters.

  3. Speaking of shoot to kill which I agree with, an article on the subject by Amren,
    Taylor mentions Katrina and homeowners were allowed to shoot to kill looters
    but I specifically remember National Guard or police going from home to home
    collecting homeowner's guns.

    1. I remember the home to home deal, but not the other although it is certainly the right of the homeowner to shoot thieves. Thanks for the link and an excellent site.

  4. Amren left out Ronnie Thompson, Mayor in Macon, Ga in the late 60's and early 70's.
    A colorful figure, he was. I lived about thirty miles South of Macon at the time of
    the black riots. Some info:
    When racial rioting broke out in Macon on June 20, 1970, Thompson issued "shoot-to-kill" orders to police to stop looting. He drove a National Guard tank onto a Macon elementary school campus to intimidate would-be criminals . He authorized billboards in Macon warning that armed robbers would be "shot on sight".[22]

    In midsummer of 1971, a racial crisis erupted when a black city employee was shot and killed by a white policeman, who a month later was cleared of involuntary manslaughter.[23]Mayor Thompson imposed a 36-hour curfew after several suspected fire bombings. He fired a carbine in the air, heard over police radio, while he accompanied a police patrol.[24] He further angered liberals by publicly discussing the "best type of bullet" to use against the criminal element. Critics called him "Machine Gun Ronnie", a sobriquet to which he did not object though he never handled a machine gun. In fact, he paid for his campaigns by selling memorabilia containing the name "Thompson" on model machine guns. end.
    I was so proud and so were most.
