How does the adage go? Be careful what you wished for, for wishes may come true? Well… meet Baltimore. When the Baltimore mayor said she wanted to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that” she clearly meant it. Because the city of Baltimore has done just that. Baltimore has suffered from its most violent on record in a long, long time.
The mayor got what she wanted, and so did the Baltimore residents. Arrests in Baltimore have been plunging and violence has been soaring. But believe it or not, the residents aren’t happy with the change. The very change for which they asked.
Before it was over-policing. Now there’s no police. People feel as though they can do things and get away with it. I see people walking with guns almost every single day, because they know the police aren’t pulling them up like they used to.
Surpriiiiise! You hated the police, you violently attacked and protested the police, you vilified the police, then you complain when they leave. Did I miss something?
These residents should be thrilled to find that the fuzz is no longer amongst them. They’re free from the shackles of the five-0, and enjoy all of the violence that comes with it.
Another resident, Antionette Perrine said:
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.
Something, needs done, obviously. I have an idea: have you considered calling Al Sharpton?
