Maryland Creating A Safe Haven For Violent Criminals

In Maryland, you aren’t allowed to defend yourself, and the police aren’t allowed to defend you either.

    For now, they have toilet paper in Baltimore. Things are going to get rough though.

    • Hugh says:

      If the options are to shoot a person carrying toilet paper, and not shooting him, I suggest not shooting. It becomes cheaper.

      If your problem is petty thieves, the moral can’t be brought with grossly violent on street punishment. No. People need to learn to shame and respect, and you don’t do that with firearms.

      Rapists you may shoot.

      • rah says:

        Those that have no shame cannot be made ashamed. And anyone that loots TP or anything else, probably has no shame. They don’t care.

  2. Well…kind of.
    US has one of if not the highest incarceration rates in the world. While progressives want velvet handed justice and conservatives are more iron fisted, there is something else wrong with the system. For the benifit of lower labour costs in the late 1700s/early 1800s America now pays the price. A transplanted race, historically discriminated against and disenfranchised, struggles for legitimacy and prosperity. There is a long history of racial tension in certain US states.
    It seems more situational than government policy based.
    Mogadishu on the other hand is a war of competing, sometimes religious, warlords in a poverty ridden wasteland. I doubt they can afford to incarcerate very many people.
    My two cents.

    • Mark Luhman says:

      Pure unadulterated BS. The problem is that the state make promises, and people buy into them. The real problem is people need to be taught that they are responsible for their own out comes, it not up to government to take care of you. A immigrate black does better that a Black person raise here, how in the hell do you explain that. That not only true for black but just about every other nationality also. We have a broke education system that does not expect children to rise to their highest levels instead it now caters to the children lowest levels. Liberal and progressive have just about killed this country and you Password Protected have bought into their adult bovine fetal mater.

      • Chris Barron says:

        “A immigrate black does better that a Black person raise here, how in the hell do you explain that”

        One feasible solution is that the immigrant had hope….their judgement about their future prospects had not been discoloured by having to live in a country where televised Rodney King beatings show you what your future could hold in store.

        Of course, then again it depends where the immigrant came from.

        • rah says:

          Yea the Asian immigrants, no matter if they’re from China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, India, etc do better than the majority of US indigenous blacks and Native Americans. Why? Because high proportions of the later are dependent classes.

  3. gator69 says:

    If they want to riot over discrimination, maybe this would be a good reason…

    The 2013 FBI Uniform Crime Report, a compilation of annual crime statistics, also shows similar data: 83 percent of white victims were killed by white offenders; 90 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders; 14 percent of white victims were killed by black offenders; and 7.6 percent of black victims were killed by white offenders.

    White Americans are the racial majority, with a 77.7% share of the U.S. population. Hispanic and Latino Americans amount to 17.1% of the population, making up the largest minority. African Americans are the largest racial minority, amounting to 13.2% of the population.

    Wow! So 14% of whites are killed by blacks who only make up 13.2% of the population, and only 7.6% of blacks are killed by whites who make up a whopping 77.7% of the U.S. population.

    A “white” homicide victim is over twice as likely to be killed by a black than a black homicide victim is to be killed by a “white.”

    Blacks are also disproportionately represented among cop killers. In 2013, blacks made up 42 percent of all cop killers whose race was known.

    Why aren’t whites and cops rioting in the streets?

    • Scott says:

      “…14 percent of white victims were killed by black offenders; and 7.6 percent of black victims were killed by white offenders.”

      “A ‘white’ homocide victim is over twice as likely to be killed by a black than a black homicide victim is to be killed by a ‘white.'”

      The second quote would indicate that 7.6% is less than half of 14%.

    What utter Bovine F*eces! Typical Prog Ducking of Reality.

    First there was Des*egregation Busing of inner city kids to the suburbs to give them access to white suburbia schooling. That happened in the late 1960s.

    Then blacks were given a better change at college than a white person in the USA. (Again this happened in the late 1960s. We had a ton of innercity kids show up at the university I attended in my second year.)
    Asians Penalized 50 Points On SAT – Black Students Given 230 Bonus Points…

    Then Blacks were given special scholarships to pay for school. M*inority Scholarships

    This section contains a listing of scholarships for m*inorities that we hope will prove useful to a large audience of m*inority students who need additional scholarship money to help pay for school. These include African American Scholarships, Native American Scholarships, Hispanic Scholarships and many more. Students of a wide variety of ethnicities will find they qualify for at least one of the scholarships for m*inorities…. (wwwDOT) /financial-aid /college-scholarships/scholarships-by-type/ m*inority-scholarships/

    A black has a better chance at a job than a white person in the USA. Blacks according to the last Census are 12.3% of the US population. Whether qualified or not, because of Aff*irmative A*ction, companies were forced to hire blacks to meet the Demographics quote or risk being sued. Once hired the blacks were ‘Fire proof’ I saw that often enough in my career. They could refuse to work, break equipment while throwing a temper-tantrum, mouth off and you STILL could not fire them! (BTDT on several occasions.)

    The most stable jobs in America, are state and govt jobs. For the most part they are recession proof, offer great benefits, and are basically a job that once you get into, you are there for life, and after retirement you receive a great pension. Added points to test scores on civil service exams is a typical situation but not one that is often talked about.

    Lifted from the first part of the table as an example of the percent blacks hired. Please note that many of these people have been in the job for years and years so this is not due to Obummer.
    Exec branch 17.2%
    Exec Depts 16.4%

    Office of the Senior Coordinator For
    Southwest 34.8%
    Grest Plains 34.1%

    Department of
    Interior 5.1%
    Justice 17.5%
    Labor 23.2%
    State 28.1%
    In general the Blacks are a wee bit over represented.

      And then there is this…

      Critics of affirmative action in American higher education sometimes lose
      sight of the fact that elite universities give added weight to many different
      types of student characteristics. In this article, we examine the roles played by
      preferences for athletes and children of alumni. Based on complete data for
      three applicant cohorts to three of the most academically selective research
      universities, we show that admission bonuses for athletes and legacies rival,
      and sometimes even exceed, the size of preferences for underrepresented minority
      applicants. Being African American instead of white is worth an average
      of 230 additional SAT points on a 1600-point scale
      , but recruited athletes
      reap an advantage equivalent to 200 SAT points. Other things equal, Hispanic
      applicants gain the equivalent of 185 points, which is only slightly more
      than the legacy advantage, which is worth 160 points. Coming from an Asian
      background, however, is comparable to the loss of 50 SAT points

      Those Asian riots have been really devastating and regular.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Asians and Jews have a culture that holds education in very high regard. Despite centuries of persecution the Jews STILL honor education. As I said below the problem is paying women (and their parasitic men) to sit on their rumps and pop babies. Not to mention the Progs repeatedly telling BLACKS that White OWE THEM.

        • gator69 says:

          During my college days, I worked as a repoman in East St Louis, and had to enter the worst homes, in the worst housing projects in the US. I could barely afford to feed myself working up to 60 hours per week, and would pull up in a van to see BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Cadillac and many other luxury cars parked out front. The kids were the last consideration in the vast majority of those homes, they were merely paychecks. It was common to see kids locked in a house with zero supervision, and bars on the windows that would prevent then from escaping a fire.

          I cannot count the number of times we called Child Protective Services, and then returned to the home days later to find nothing had changed. We usually rode alone in the vans, but occassionally we would team up, and on one run my partner for the day “kidnapped” twins that he saw being abused. He nearly faced charges, but thankfully the responding officer was smart, and threatened the mother with CPS and she backed down.

          I could write books about my experiences in the “hood”, and my friends have urged me to do so. Maybe someday.

    • Gail Combs says:

      If opportunity is not the problem then what is?

      WELFARE!!!! The US government has now created a new job category, Un-wed Mother! Between Section 8 housing, food stamps and all the other goodies staying home and poping babies pays much better then a minimum wage job.

      A small businessman I knew who built hand-made harps complained that he could not hire help because the ladies he talked to all were better paid staying at home getting welfare. You have to pay double minimum wage UNDER THE TABLE to entice someone. Most small business people will echo this complaint. (Major conversation at more than one crafts festivals – it is a common complaint.)

      How does it work? In Taxachusetts a Social worker can not make surpise inspections. They must make an appointment with the welfare Mom. This means her boy friend has time to pack and leave and she has time to bring in her sister’s kids to augment her ‘pay’ A made-up story? No just business as usual in Taxachusetts. You can ask any one who is honest and rents section 8 housing. I got that same complaint from a couple guys at work, one living next door to the welfare mom, and also from a friend who is a landlord in New York.

      So what about the guy? I know one guy who brags he fathered 52 children. I know a couple of his ‘ladies’ and they are scared to death of him. Not surprising since his rap sheet includes assualt and assualt with a deadly weapon.

      And that plus drugs creates the problem we see in the inner cities and it is not just the blacks either. The Welfare mentality cuts across lines.

      • gator69 says:

        Un-wed moms? Come on Gail, they are married. To our Uncle Sam, who supports them and the kids.

        “The current welfare system provides such a high level of benefits that it acts as a disincentive for work,” Tanner and Hughes write in their new paper. “Welfare currently pays more than a minimum-wage job in 35 states, even after accounting for the Earned Income Tax Credit,” which offers extra subsidies to low-income workers who take work. “In 13 states [welfare] pays more than $15 per hour.”

        Tanner and Hughes award the national welfare championship to Hawaii, which offers $60,590 in annual welfare benefits, once you account for the fact that welfare benefits are tax-free to the recipient, compared to work-related wages. That’s the equivalent of $29.13 an hour. Rounding out the top five were D.C. ($50,820 per year and $24.43 an hour), Massachusetts ($50,540 and $24.30), Connecticut ($44,370 and $21.33), and New York ($43,700 and $21.01).

        Another study I read awhile back showed that a single mother who takes a $21,000 job loses @ $40,000 in bebefits.

        BTW – Drugs are a symptom of the disease, not the disease.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Thanks for the added info. gator however drugs are part of the problem.

          Remember the Opium Wars?

          Remember Civil Asset Forfeiture?

          [Major plug for Forfeiture Endangers American Rights Foundation (FEAR) Who has worked hard to protect our right to our property. They are down to one person and need Volunteers/Donations.]


          Illegal Drugs are not a symptom they are a major revenue generator and ‘excuse’ for the government. Desegregation Busing of inner city kids to the suburbs to gave the under-aged drug pushers access to new markets – white suburbia school kids – and the drug problem exploded. After we had busing for a year in my school my best friend’s six year old sister was stealing money from her mom’s purse to support her new habit. — So there goes your symptom excuse.

          The Department of Homeland Security’s refusal to close the Mexican border gives the Drug Cartels easy access to the markets in the USA., as well as a highway for illegals and Muslim terrorists.

          A study of asset forfeiture’s impact on police procedure. Drug Enforcement’s Double-Edged Sword: An Assessment of Asset Forfeiture Programs said the policy forces law enforcement agencies to subordinate justice to profit….


          Under forfeiture statutes, innocent owners of property or money, never charged with a crime, still must prove their innocence through complex proceedings. . Under civil asset forfeiture laws, the simple possession of cash, with no drugs or other contraband, can be considered evidence of criminal activity.

          Results from the Asset Forfeiture study above revealed a concentration on seizing real property with a high value. In addition, real property seizures are preplanned and commonly made under the controversial facilitation statute.


          When asked why a search warrant would not be served on a suspect known to have resale quantities of contraband one officer responded:
          “Because that would just give us a bunch of dope and the hassle of having to book him (the suspect). We’ve got all the dope we need in the property room, just stick to rounding up cases with big money and stay away from warrants.”

          In another case officers were instructed to wait until most of a large shipment was converted into cash.

          This perversion of law enforcement priorities was the subject of an empirical study “Efficiency is measured by the amount of money seized rather than impact on drug trafficking.” ,Drug Enforcement’s Double-Edged Sword: An Assessment of Asset Forfeiture Programs described forfeiture as a “dysfunctional policy” that forces law enforcement agencies to subordinate justice to profit.

          The WSJ also covers the problem.

          Police for Profit

          With states and cities struggling with deficits, one fertile source of revenue has been money or property seized by police in possible connection with crimes. Not to be left behind, Illinois has pursued this tactic aggressively, using a law which encourages both police departments and prosecutors to take property for forfeiture, long before the accused ever get their day in court.

          …Under Illinois law, the state has 187 days after property is seized to file forfeiture proceedings. Meanwhile, of forfeited funds seized, 25% lands in the lap of the prosecutor’s office. Another 65% goes to the department that seized the property, giving police added incentive to take the property to pad their budgets. Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted this police incentive with concern.

          The numbers can be hefty. In 2008, the Chicago Police Department bragged it took in some $13.5 million in asset forfeitures, nearly double what it had seized the previous year. Golly. Inquiring minds will wonder if there were actually double the situations that called for asset forfeiture last year, or if the Chicago PD is simply more assertive about detaining property when the city is short of money.

          The case comes from the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which vindicated the citizens when it ruled that the time between forfeiture and judicial hearing presented an unconstitutional delay…

          The Illinois law compares awkwardly with the federal Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000. As the Cato Institute details in an amicus brief, while the two laws may establish comparable time frames, federal civil forfeiture actions can often run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, a level of cost and complexity well beyond the property at issue under the Illinois drug law. The better match-up is with other state forfeiture laws, and here Illinois performs miserably, taking many times as long to provide a hearing as the likes of Florida, Iowa, Arizona, Missouri and Texas….

          Did the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 fix the problem NO!

          FEAR who has worked on getting the reform says:

          …The Senate compromise also added 200 or more new federal offenses to the list of offenses that trigger forfeiture.

          Unfortunately some of CAFRA’s [Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000] most important reforms have since been nullified by prosecutors and the courts. Even in those cases where CAFRA requires counsel for indigent claimants, judges have created exceptions to avoid appointing counsel. Attorneys’ fees are rarely reimbursed these days because the courts have created exceptions by construing “substantially prevail” to mean something other than winning your property back.

          Rather than reining in aggressive forfeitures as Congress expected, after CAFRA was enacted federal forfeiture revenue skyrocketed from $470 million in 2001 to $6.5 billion in 2013. The abuses continued and multiplied….

          The UK has the same problem:
          Rotherham — 1400 Kids Groomed, Drugged, and Raped by Multicultural Sensitivity

          The government creates the problem via making drugs illegal and then makes sure the problem continues… We wouldn’t want to put any BureauRats out of a job now would we???

        • gator69 says:

          Alcohol is a drug Gail. We learned that the Eighteenth Amendment lead to more, and more violent crime. How is it that we have forgotten?

        • Gail Combs says:

          The problem is ILLEGAL drugs. If the drugs are not illegal then Civil Asset forfeiture goes away and so does the illegal drug cartel, the drug pushers …

          It is an example of :Cause the problem so you can suck up wealth to ‘treat’ the problem.

          When they shut down Prohibition they just switched the bureaucracy to drugs. Same song different day.

          (Some where I did the usual evidence gathering on that but I am not going to repeat it.)

        • gator69 says:

          My point exactly.

          Plus you can focus law enforcement on violent criminals, and not ruin the lives of college students that get busted with a plant.

          Gator I put this at the bottom of my original post but forgot to bold it. Sorry

    “By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Had Freddie Gray been robbed, beaten and left to die in the streets of his Baltimore neighborhood, no one would be mourning him today.

    No one would be marching for Freddie. No one would be using Freddie as the new poster child of “Black Lives Matter!”

    No one would care, three weeks later, but his family and friends.

    It was the manner of his death, suffering a fractured spine in police custody, that makes Freddie matter. For he can now be credibly cast in the victim’s role in the great new narrative against America — that ours is a society of unequal justice where racist cops routinely brutalize black men and boys and are rarely called to account.

    In this narrative, the liberal is always the hero.

    Hillary Clinton knows the narrative by heart and has rushed forward to cast herself as the champion of black America.

    As The Washington Times reports, Hillary declared Wednesday she would help to end a “pattern” of cops killing black men.”

    THREE of the cops being thrown onto the pyre are BLACK!

  9. NancyG says:

    Gee, if police were to be so hated in this country that their jobs became even more dangerous and less people wanted to be police officers, well, maybe the government would direct the military to step in and become the sole law enforcement. I’m not a conspiracy theorist by nature, but this sure seems like a war on cops.
