Black Thugs Hammer Black Citizens

by DEROY MURDOCK May 1, 2015 4:00 AM

Dear Black Thugs:

To each of you I echo what actor Terrence Howard’s character told his gangbanger brother in the Academy Award–winning film Crash: “You embarrass me. You embarrass yourself.” From Ferguson to Baltimore, the whole world is watching as you run wild. Thanks to you, plate-glass store windows shatter into shards. You pry ATMs from walls to drain them of cash. One of you joy-rode a car through flaming debris along a smoldering street. You set homes, workplaces, and shops ablaze. You burned a 60-bed nursing home for seniors, still under construction, and literally knifed Baltimore firefighters’ water hoses as they tried to douse this inferno. And you enjoyed a 100-percent-off shopping spree — damn the consequences. How does ripping off a bottle of whiskey from a smoldering liquor store help us overcome? In 1850, French economist Fredric Bastiat, of whom you bums probably are oblivious, wrote an essay titled That Which Is Seen, and That Which Is Not Seen. You can see the devastation that you have created: You burned to the ground 17 businesses worth an estimated $4.6 million in Ferguson. You torched a CVS Pharmacy in Baltimore. Thanks to your violence, the Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox inside an empty Camden Yards stadium Wednesday. For safety’s sake, the next three Orioles home games, against the Tampa Bay Rays, will shift to St. Petersburg, Florida. What a massive disservice you black hoodlums have inflicted on your home town. What you don’t see are the CVS Pharmacies and other businesses that never will open in Baltimore, Compton, East St. Louis, and other predominantly black communities. Why not? Because derelicts like you have taught companies to think long and hard before operating where your ilk might turn their money into cinders. You don’t see the unpaid bills of those lucky enough to have jobs but who cannot perform them, thanks to relocated ball games, conventions, and special events. You don’t see the positions that never get created in these areas — where they are needed most. Baltimore’s unemployment rate is 8.2 percent versus 5.5 percent nationwide. According to the latest Census data, an astonishing 37 percent of Baltimore’s black men between ages 20 and 24 were jobless in 2013. Did you hooligans consider how your crimes would make life miserable for your black neighbors who simply want to earn honest paychecks? And this likely will be no short-term problem. Detroit, Newark, Watts, and the poorer parts of Washington, D.C. suffered severe riots when the black thugs of the 1960s thought it would be brilliant to incinerate their own neighborhoods. Some of those places took decades to recover. Even today, Detroit struggles to stand on its feet. And now, Baltimore will suffer. What a massive disservice you black hoodlums have inflicted on your home town. Long an underappreciated city, Baltimore’s urban core has blossomed. The restaurants, shops, bars, and historical buildings around the Inner Harbor and Fell’s Point are fun, beautiful, and inviting. As tourists plan their summer vacations, thanks to you bums, they will consider these places to avoid. Do you think this makes life better for black people? Do you even care? You punks only have made black people look bad from coast to coast. Indeed, you punks only have made black people look bad from coast to coast. Decent, honest, law-abiding blacks have begged for calm and stood protectively between your sorry selves and the police. Toya Graham famously disciplined her rampaging son, who earned her slaps across his face. But, alas, the far more prominent images from Ferguson and Baltimore feature blacks who could not control themselves and turned serious questions about police conduct into mass theft, beatings, and arson. This carnage utterly backfired as political expression. As the New York Post’s Kyle Smith observed, “CVS’s efforts to sell aspirin and shampoo did not have a lot to do with the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old Baltimore man whose funeral Tuesday, after he died with a broken spine while in police custody, precipitated the unrest.” According to a prisoner who shared a police van with him, the Washington Post reported Wednesday night, he heard Gray “banging against the walls” and thought he “was intentionally trying to injure himself.” If Gray’s eventually fatal wounds prove to have been self-inflicted, this entire pathetic affair will wither into a museum-grade case of “never mind.” The only winners here are white racists. You hoods have handed them all the ammunition they need to keep preaching their lies: e.g. “Blacks are genetically savage, violent, and dangerous.” While you have thrown fresh gasoline on their flames of hate, you also have lit pilot lights of doubt in the minds of some whites who don’t hate blacks but, perhaps, wonder if a black candidate is quite right for that job. Or how about the young black couple eyeing that new house? Or the black businessman seeking that commercial loan? Or the amiable black guy trying to hail a cab and meet his sister and friends at a birthday dinner? After Ferguson and Baltimore, some whites now will wonder, “Is it really safe to bet on those blacks?” From blatant bigotry to quiet concerns, you black criminals who turned the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray into pageants of bedlam have given white Americans new reasons to look at black Americans at least slightly differently than they did just a year ago. Thanks for nothing, black thugs.



And if they could have waited just a few days before destroying their own neighborhood:

Officers Charged In Freddie Gray’s Death, State’s Attorney Said Arrest Was Illegal

May 1, 2015 6:39 PM

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby says Freddie Gray received his critical injuries in Baltimore police custody and has charged all six officers involved in his death.
The city state’s attorney outlined where they say the officers went wrong from the moment they arrested Gray all the way to the time they took him out of the van and realized he wasn’t breathing.
On April 12, when 25-year-old Freddie Gray first made eye contact with a city police officer and ran away, officers chased him down and arrested him at 1700 Pressbury Street.
Bystanders then began recording the arrest, watching as Gray was placed in the police van. The prosecutor faults the three arresting officers for not properly restraining or seatbelting Gray in the van, calling his arrest illegal to begin with.
“Lt. Rice, Officer Nero and Officer Miller failed to establish probable cause for Mr. Gray’s arrest, as no crime had been committed by Mr. Gray,” Mosby said.
The van made its first stop at Baker Street, where Gray was removed, put in flex cuffs and leg shackles and, again, not properly restrained. It is here prosecutors believe he was injured.
“Following transport from Baker’s Street, Mr. Gray suffered a severe and critical neck injury as a result of being restrained, handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained by his feet inside the Baltimore Police Department wagon,” she said.
That van stopped again at the intersection of Mosher and Freemont Street. The driver got out and observed Gray, but gave him no medical aid—and Gray still wasn’t in a seatbelt. The van made a third stop at Dolphin and Druid Hill Street, where Gray said he couldn’t breathe and asked twice for medical attention.
“However, despite Mr. Gray’s request for a medic, both officers assessed Mr. Gray’s condition. At no point did they restrain Mr. Gray per BPD general order, nor did they render or request medical attention,” she said.
The van then headed to North Avenue and Pennsylvania, where it stops to pick up Donta Allen. At that time, Gray was already unresponsive, according to Mosby. The officers did not get him medical help; he was still not properly secured in the van. Finally, the van drove to the Western District Police Station, where officers first removed the other prisoner from the van, before realizing that Gray had stopped breathing and was now in cardiac arrest.
“The findings of our comprehensive, thorough, and independent investigation coupled with the ME’s determination that Mr. Gray’s death was a homicide which we received today, has led us to believe that we have probable cause to file criminal charges,” Mosby said.
She charged all six officers in the death of Gray and said his arrest was illegal.
Mosby described the morning’s event:
She said Lt. Brian W. Rice along with Officer Garret Miller & Officer Edward M. Nero were on bike patrol when they made eye contact with Gray. Gray ran from Rice and Rice dispatched he was involved in a foot pursuit. Other officers got involved.
Gray surrendered to Miller and Nero and the officer handcuffed him behind his back, Mosby said. Gray asked for an inhaler because he “could not breathe,” but the officers did not get him medical attention.
They found a knife clipped inside his pants packet — the knife was not a switchblade and is lawful under Maryland law, she said.
The officers then restrained Gray in a “leg lace,” and held him down until the transport van arrived, while he “flailed and screamed.”
The officers failed to find probable cause for Gray’s arrest, Mosby said. When the police transport van arrived, he was placed into the wagon driven by Officer Caesar B. Goodson, but without a seatbelt.
“At no point was he secured by a seatbelt while in the wagon contrary to a BPD general order,” she added. “Despite stopping for the purpose of checking on Mr. Gray’s condition, at no point did he seek nor render any medical assistance for Mr. Gray.”
Gray was then removed from the wagon at Baker Street, places flex cuffs on his wrists and leg shackles on his ankles — while they completed paperwork. He was then placed back into the wagon’s floor head first and stomach down — without a seatbelt.
“Following transport from Baker Street, Mr. Gray suffered a severe and critical neck injury as a result of being handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained inside of the BPD wagon,” Mosby said.
After leaving Baker Street, the officers stopped again to check on Gray’s condition, but they did not seek medical attention for Gray. Again, Goodson drove off without buckling Gray into the van.
The van stopped once again, this time Officer William G. Porter met up with Goodson and checked on gray. Gray asked for medical attention stating he couldn’t breathe. Porter asked Gray if he needed a medic and although Gray insisted he did, the officers allegedly placed him back on the bench and decided he did not need a medic.
Then Porter left to assist with another arrest on West North avenue and Goodson shortly followed with Gray in the back of the police van to help transport another suspect. When they arrived at that located they Sgt. Alicia White, Goodson and Porter saw Gray was unresponsive on the floor of the back of the wagon.
White spoke to the back of Gray’s head and was advised he needed a medic, but Mosby said she made no effort to determine his condition.
The officer did not get Gray medical attention until they returned to the Western District station.
Mosby said the officers are being charged with a number of counts of manslaughter, assault and misconduct. One officer will even be charged with a count of murder.
• Officer Caeser B. Goodson, Jr. was charged with second-degree depraved heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, two counts of manslaughter by vehicle and misconduct in office.
• Officer William G. Porter was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.
• Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
• Officer Edward M. Nero charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
• Officer Garret Miller charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
• Sgt. Alicia White involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.
“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘No Justice, No Peace,’ your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” Mosby added.
The officers could face up to 20 years in prison for the charges. The driver — Goodson — could face up to 63 years in prison. They are expected to turn themselves in later today.
