A radical and unpopular view is not an uncommon perspective that I’m known to unleash, and this one, I’m sure ,will hit the top of the top of most readers’ charts of annoyance.
I’ve watched in horror as miscreants burned and looted the sections of Baltimore where they live. Mom-and-Pop stores went up in flames just like the corporate-owned CVS they set fire to.
So what about the neighbors who used to get a pay check at the burned out place?
I’ve watched as the typical riot unfolded with car windows being smashed with trash cans and other cars being set on fire.
So how’s that neighbor going to get where they need to go? Oh, all the damaged vehicles belonged to the cops so that means the taxpayers loose on them.
It’s said that most of the initial trouble was caused by high school kids when school was out.
Your ass belongs at home and it doesn’t have permission, from the mindful parent, to make a looting and burning stop when you have chores to do at home after you’re out of school.
It’s said that the young people are angry and have no resources in their community to keep them busy.
Who declared the city is responsible for providing outlets for the kids? Great if that’s the case BUT whatever happened to family responsibility?
Of course, the next line of defense for the reprehensible behavior cited above is that miscreant thugs are poor, have no father in the home, no jobs are available for them and they are students enrolled in a dysfunctional education system.
Pardon my French – BULLSHIT!
The mother who made her way through the crowd of rioters after seeing her son on television hanging with the “homies” and slapped his dumb ass upside the head is the only measure that I’ve seen of taking things where they need to go.
Who in the hell should be held responsible for all of those young rioters?
The Police Chief?
Let’s take it where it needs to be taken. And that’s right up to the front door of every house that’s got a kid living in it.
Ask the parents where Jamal and Janell were the night of the riots. Home doing his/her school work?
And just where did the thieves take the stolen loot?
Where’s all that whisky from the liquor store they burned down?
Even rich lady Hillary has thrown into her campaign talk about the need for a better criminal justice system. It’s good for the candidate that it’s a worthy cause, BUT it isn’t what the riots were about.
I can’t help but wonder if she and Bill raised Chelsea on a formula of act like an ass with a tantrum and we’ll reward you because your senseless acts of violence are exactly what it took to open our eyes?
Talk about mass incarceration and Hillary did mention such — every rioter and looter on the streets of Baltimore should have been swooped up in a paddy wagon and hauled off to the local jail .
The President has called the rioters thugs and that’s just what they are. The Baltimore Mayor called them thugs but now she’s trying to take back the term as some crazies out there are trying to make a riot politically correct so as to mean thugs is a wrong term.
News reporters want us to hear from the looters. What is it they want? Well, I’ll tell you what they need.
